Peter Berkowitz has an admirable essay at RealClearPolitics on the need to allow people who oppose same-sex marriage to avoid demonization. Per usual, Berkowitz, like the supporters of same-sex marriage who have issued a public call not to squelch debate on the issue, understands that our democracy never benefits from the suppression of debate and dissent. One can be wrong without being a bigot, and the Constitution must protect a person's right to be wrong.
