Can we tolerate our different opinions on same sex marriage?

The United States has made history once again by making same sex marriage legal in all fifty states. Many people have their opinions on if it is right or wrong for people of the same sex to get married. Can we tolerate others opinions if it is not the same as ours?

There are about 9 million LGBT adults in the United States. 251,695 same-sex marriages happened in 2013. 60% of Americans support gay marriage. 22% of same-sex couples raise adopted or foster children. The younger generations express higher levels of support for same sex marriage. 

With these statistics there is evidence that same-sex couples are being accepted more and becoming more frequent. However, there are people that do not support same sex marriage. Most of the people that do not support chose not to because of religious beliefs or political beliefs. These people are sometimes viewed as homophobic or judgmental. Does one person’s dislike or disagreement on this matter deserve to be tolerated by others or not? It is all a matter of personal opinion and respect.
