Ultimately it's pretty stupid to have a fight over terminology and I realize I'm over simplifying it, but that's what it amounts to to me.
You are right it was founded on religious freedom. Also by allowing gay marriage nobody is forcing anyone one to accept anything. Those who chose to not approve of it can continue to do so. What gays should do is proclaim gay is a religion. They then could demand equal rights and get a tax break~
