I'm not sure there are many positive qualities that would make a person oppose it, however.
The problem with the religious standpoint is that their religious evidence is cherry picked out of many passages. Most of which are ignored through varying interpretations. This invariably leads to a defenseless bigotry which most religious people have figured out. It's one of the reasons why every Christian I know of eats pork even though it's listed as an "abomination" in the Bible. Or they use the defense that Leviticus and other passages in the Bible only pertain to the children of Israel which is a kind of complex interpretation. Needless to say the religious defense is more of a weak scapegoat for bigotry. It's akin to saying "I'm not intolerant, God is" with no justification.
