The culture wars then and now
I couldn't have said it better myself. Except to say that who controls the institutions of communication plays a big role. So when the majority of Americans opposed gay marriage, gays and gay marriage advocates were popularly and officially portrayed as the courageous crusaders of truth and justice. Now that the majority of Americans support gay marriage, those who oppose it are portrayed as the bigots and hate mongers who will get what they have coming. So the role of propaganda can't be downplayed. Otherwise, excellent article.
