This morning I was reading the Indiana University student newspaper (my wife is an alum, so I check it out from time to time), and I came across a stirring example of how the cause of same-sex marriage continues to progress among the younger generations.  Here is a letter to the editor, written by an undergraduate who identifies as straight, Catholic, and a Republican - and he's written a concise and very persuasive defense of marriage rights for all.  Reading it gave me hope.

Money quote:

Marriages already take place in casinos, court houses and without religious officials, and 50 percent of them end in divorce. If we don’t even bother to hold Christians to standards of a traditional marriage (“’til death do us part”), then how can gays be held to standards of traditional Christian marriage?
