I'm sick of everyone comparing the Civil Rights Movement and this gay marriage thing! First of all, doing such offends many black people. Second of all: It's an invalid comparison.
People back then had absolutely no reason to discriminate against blacks. But today, there's a reason why 2/3 of mankind will not accept gay marriage or gay acts in public.
The two major religions, Christianity and Islam, condemn homosexuality. That's about 2/3 of mankind. So, let's look at it this way
~2-5 million people favoring segregation back then (no clue if that's the real number)
~4 billion people against homosexuality
Tough luck for the gay people if they think this is going to end up even close to the Civil Rights movement.
