Two major aspects of the culture of America is inclusivity--this is the melting pot--and scientific--thus our preponderance of Nobel laureates. Even Jesusland people accept that Earth revolves around the Sun because science says so. Science does not bow to religion.
So when science says, as it has repeatedly so since the 1970s, that being gay is as normal as being str8, then it is the inclination of this culture to include us with all the human dignities and freedoms and responsibilities enjoyed by str8 people.
Anything counter that, any force seeking to deny us our equal human rights is not in tune with culture. And that is why it is going to lose this war. This fight for the freedom to express our humanity. Countering rights for gay people is not respect for culture. It spits on culture. It is homophobic.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HomophobiaHomophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). It can be expressed as antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, or hatred, may be based on irrational fear, and is sometimes related to religious beliefs
