I don't care what faith you practice, what the specific rules of it might be, how can anything that makes people truly love their fellow man, joyful of the moment and the potential for love and happiness around them, be wrong? Is there really any religion that preaches people should be made miserable - or is that a construct of men trying to mold religion to their own desires?
I have friends and family who mean more to me than words can express, who are also glbt. The idea that they can marry someone they love without worry in one more state makes me joyful. The idea that if something were ever to happen to me and DH, I have the option to name them guardian, and one less state is going to raise hell about it makes me peaceful and glad.
What reason should anyone have to look at this situation and be anything but happy about the peace and happiness it brings to others? It doesn't take away from anyone, or what they already have. It doesn't force anyone who is not gay to enter into a gay marriage. How is it wrong?
Even if you cite scripture that you personally interpret as your own religion saying that gay relationships are wrong, ONLY amongst adherents of your own religion, how does that apply to anyone who does not practice it, or anyone who interprets it differently? That law is not Ceasar's.
