I don't think marriage is the real goal of many of the activists. Marriage is just one piece of the the puzzle in the attempt to force approval. There are those who want homosexuality promoted to small children in schools as healthy normal behavior, and this has already been going on. My brother said that a school in his town was encouraging small children to perform gay kissing several years ago. I don't think they should be encouraging any kind of sexuality with small children, let alone homosexuality. School should be about education, not social engineering. I don't think it's appropriate to compare religion with aberrant human sexuality. Religion is normal and widely accepted in most societies. I suppose people who hate sidewalks could say that countries with sidewalks are stirring hornets nests and forcing sidewalks down peoples throats, but that says more about the person than the country. It's not as if atheists are forced to have their kids pray, go to church, or pay tithes. Some are just overly touchy about any mention of a tradition they don't observe. If they don't believe in God, what difference does it make if the word is mentioned in a traditional pledge? Why not consider the pledge tradition rather than religion? Though I don't really think any sort of pledge of allegiance to a country is appropriate for kids, I'm not offended that kids say it.
