Yes. That's part of nature. It's not murder as murder is when a person kills another person.
Perhaps. Ideal in what way? When did this concept start? When it started, was it any more "ideal" than the concept it replaced?
Fact is, holding onto traditions (meaning not changing) in a world what is changing is the making for a potential disaster.
You are advocating for change in the definition of marriage. OK. Advocates of change have the burden of persuasion. Make your case. Advocate. How will expanding the definition be a good thing for society?
As an example, look at the auto industry. The Big 3 didn't change their ways until the late 90's early 2000's. Now they are battling back to become relevant again.
The fact is, pro-gay marriage people are asking for their family style to 'replace' the traditional family, simply exist along side it. Many in the traditional family set don't only refuse this idea, but accepting gay marriage at all. That, to me, isn't tolerance nor acceptance. That's fear and hate pure and simple.
Individuals attitudes towards same sex marriage will vary greatly. Some will be the jerks you refer to (we'll never get rid of them - they kinda have a constitutional right to be that way - makes them no less jerks though) but that certainly won't be true in all cases and difficult to pin down in terms of reliable numbers.
