An End To The Culture War

Again, in a conversation with a friend, I contemplated what might deliver the coup de grâce to the religious-right groups that are fighting day and night to continue their marginalization of the homosexual populace. As I see it, there are three distinct groups in this culture war:
  1. Homosexuals and heterosexuals that support same-sex marriage rights.
  2. Social conservatives that oppose same-sex marriage on religious grounds.
  3. People who are religious but support same-sex marriage.
The first two groups are outspoken. If the third group were to give themselves a public voice, this so-called culture war would be over. They need only create a television ad with something to the effect of, "I am [insert religious denomination] and I support gay-marriage." The end.
