Any ideology fixated on preserving marriage and the nuclear family should be proactively encouraging as many couples to marry as possible, including gay couples. It's time to call out the hypocrisy of the right: It doesn't make sense to be pro-marriage and pro-family while opposing gay marriage and gay families.
It's back-to-school season for most and stepping back into the scene isn't easy for a lot of students -- especially LGBTQ students.
