[on the question of how same-sex marriage would harm society]
This is like asking, "How would the official endorsement of men having sex with men as normal behavior by the public school system hurt society?."
The question presumes it would take time for the new generation to undergo indoctrination before the hurt would statistically manifest.
Since those raised under the old teaching would not be molded by the new teaching, we should expect the old ways to be practiced until the new generation replaced the older generation.
Thus, your reference to Massachusetts fails to allow adequate time for the process.
I think we can also obtain a clearer perspective if we pose the question this way, "Would it hurt society if a whole generation was taught to disregard traditional sexual morality?
That question is not "unbelievably difficult to answer" as you claimed.
Indeed, by default, one would naturally expect the obvious answer to be, "yes, it would hurt society."
If you want a question that is "unbelievably difficult to answer" try proving it would not hurt society!
Since it's intuitively obvious that it would hurt society, your job does not look easy at all.
