Maude

The Hindu scriptures say our current age, Kali Yuga, which began in 3102 BC, is one of spiritual darkness. 
 
During this time, it's predicted:
 
Marriage ceases to exist as a holy union—men and women simply live together on the basis of bodily attraction and verbal agreement, and only for sexual pleasure. Women wander from one man to another. The Linga Purana says that in Kali Yuga, young women freely abandon their virginity. Women, children, and cows—always protected in an enlightened society—are abused and killed during the iron age.
 
Family, clan and caste are all meaningless. Men are without virtues, purity or decency. (Vishnu Purana 6.1)
 
During the 1960s and '70s, it looked like marriage was falling to the wayside. There was an episode of Maude from the mid-'70s in which Maude, Walter, Arthur and Vivian are at a train station and decide to hold an impromptu wedding ceremony for Arthur and Vivian.
 
Maude asks a young man with long hair and a guitar if he'll serenade the couple, and he starts jamming loudly! 
 
Maude reacts angrily: "No wonder kids today don't want to get married!" 
 
She asks him to play soft, slow music, and he obliges.
 
But the desire of LGBTs to marry indicates the opposite of what was happening in the '60s and '70s. 
 
Marriage is such a popular institution, even LGBTs want to marry! 
 
And the right wing mistakes same-sex marriage for an assault on the institution of marriage!
