Being a Canadian, it’s difficult to measure what impact religion will have in America in the coming years. If your society is anything like ours, I guess all states will eventually agree to full rights for gays and gay marriage and the like, regardless of objections from religious groups. But I think the war between puritanism, and human freedom, is already basically over. I mean, in the end, do what you like. Go on Jerry Springer and Maury and express a lifestyle that other people might say is disfunctional. The important thing is that the right for freedom of choice and expression ultimately holds sway. Or, on the other hand, if you are in a comitted relationship, go to Ashleymadison.com and start chatting. Or, in another sense, if you are in a comitted relationship, go to Ashleymadison.com and launch a complaint letter. In the end, society has already resolved the issue. Be puritan or not, it doesn’t matter. People are doing whatever they want to. I think at one point there was the idea that there had to be a direct war on religion, like from Christopher Hitchens and the like, to disinfranchise religion. But really, in a secular society, religious values ultimately, over time, become marginalized, not because of an attack on a particular religion, but because the advocacy of difference and pluralism ultimately leaves any particular religious point of view as just another voice in the crowd, and while a particular religious idea may ultimately align with the secular societal norm, if it doesn’t, it eventually becomes discounted in terms of state validity. Look at what just happened recently in India in terms of Gay rights.
