On the federal level the only option would be a constitutional amendment. I think the government should be frying much bigger fish than this.
Religously, the question is totally different, and will be another conflict between our laws, and what most people believe are against their religion, commandments from God, and regarded as sins. Abortion is one of those issues. The death penalty is one of those issues.
Laws were passed to limit Mormons from having multiple wives. After they declare limiting same sex marriage, they are going to have to turn back the clock, and allow multiple spouses IMHO.

Well if it is not up to us, then it doesn't matter what choices we make in life to do this or that. It doesn't matter if you try your best to be law-abiding or righteous or altruistic. Especially if God doles out reward and punishment absolutely arbitrarily with no regard to what the person has done (or not done) with their life. It's a very appealing position since it removes all responsibility from a person.
I also absolutely don't agree that all of us deserve hell and damnation but it is nice to see that gays aren't singled out for being gay. There are those among us who are truly selfless and altruistic and they are less deserving of hell and damnation than those who are selfish and have criminal tendencies. You're saying that mother Theresa (or Jesus for that matter) and Hitler are equally deserving of hell and damnation."

In short ...they are attempting to get us to worship other gods. And I find that many of our ministers are in on the scam by not teaching their flocks the "Whole council of God." They have left their flocks unarmoured...undefended...unprotected..unSalty.
They are attempting to make us like the nations which surrounded Ancient Israels and to rejoice in the abominations of these nations and into which Ancient Israel's leadership got caught up...knowingly or unknowingly.
I believe that at the highest levels...they entered into this other religion knowingly. I think they know this today as well.
The problem with your thinking is that even know we are a Christian/Judeo based society, we are also a free nation, with a Constitution that grants these freedoms.
One of which is freedom of expression, and freedom of religious beliefs, or to have different beliefs, or to have none at all.
God help us, if we become a nation that does not allow us these freedoms, and people everyday have spearheaded movements, to change the ideas that have affected the "few: in our society.
Our politicians are not teaching or forcing us into worshiping other Gods, our society has evolved into a different way of thinking, and accepting other concepts of God.
If anything OT, the government has not tried to have us worship other Gods, they have always tried to make you worship in the parameters, of what they perceive as God.
