Their Secret Weapon

From the Ruth Institute:
Proponents of genderless marriage managed to first tweak public opinion in large part through pushing a small cascade of individuals willing to “come out” to friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and others.  By identifying themselves to those they met in day to day life they helped make the gay agenda and genderless marriage more available and seemingly more plausible in public discourse. This process did not depend on arguments, but on emotion, as well as smearing marriage defenders as bigots.  Others were emboldened to follow suit, with the media and Hollywood serving as facilitators.

Defenders of marriage need a campaign – reinforced and multiplied by outlets such as talk radio –  that embolden all of us to speak up in everyday life.

Only through such awareness can we terminate our silence as a tool of the opposition.  By supporting one another to breach the barricades of political correctness, we can ignite a cascade of truth that takes on a life of its own. (Read entire post.)

I have come to believe this was able to come about because the culture in general does not consider Marriage as sacred. So many marriages, particularly from the Brides angle, are more about the extravaganda than the idea of taking holy vows.
