I now pronounce you...
On the personal level, one thing that hampers fruitful discussion and clear understanding where the matter of homosexuality, same-sex "marriage" and "gay pride" are concerned is, disagreement seems to be interpreted as hate by quite a few people. Emotions really do get in the way many times, so dealing with people -- loved ones especially -- who wrestle with same-sex attraction and are emotionally entangled in a relationship requires a considerable degree of tact. It is possible to maintain good friendships and to stand by your deeply held values simultaneously, and it goes without saying that regular prayer and allowing grace to nourish your life of faith will see you through.
On the level of society, here is something you will want to watch as it presents the issue with eye-opening facts -- all in 5 minutes. No mental gymnastics required :-)
