Sadly the way these things happen is we swing widely from one extreme to the other - there's no middle ground. Thus we enslaved blacks and now prefer them via affirmative action and college placement. Similarly our society once bullied and demeaned gays, but now they will be looked upon as saints and anybody criticizing their lifestyle will be persecuted. Alas.
But God (not some human form of what we might call "love") wins in the end.
