Here's what those in the know are predicting:
1. With the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" there will be a more concerted effort by the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community for gay marriage, uniting conservative evangelicals, Roman Catholics, Muslims and Orthodox Jews in a much more civil but principled resistance. Respectful debate will produce more precise and pluralistic solutions.
–Dr. Joel C. Hunter, senior pastor of Northland, a Church Distributed, in Orlando, Florida
