"The poll also found that those who attend monthly or yearly worship services favor gay marriage by 64 percent and 68 percent respectively. But those who attend weekly religious series were against same-sex marriage by 63 percent."

At last, proof that the more time you spend in church the stupider you become.

I have to wonder if it isn't like 99% for those who never attend church.[Who support gay marriage and gay rights].

"Gays more popular than Evangelical Christians?" Is that damning with faint praise?

I wonder if the study included the two "Ladies" in Pittsfield, MA where one busted the door down of her ''companion" in an effort to impregnate her with a turkey baster containing her brothers sperm.
Kinda makes me not wanting to eat turkey anymore.

Naturally these claims are invalid because the pollsters in question "believe" the earth is more than 10000 years old. So you can toss this junk social science right out.

The evenly split poll might be what percentage now thinks homosexuality is a mental disorder versus what percentage thinks fundamentalism is a mental disorder. Of course we know the trend on that one, too.

Of course the fundamentalists will insist this is all the work of Satan and part of the Great Gay Conspiracy to destroy the moral fabric of our nation (as if any gay guy would destroy fabric in the first place)
They couldn't possibly consider it is simply reaping what they sow.

Isn't that what you want them to believe? You suffer from attention deficit disorder.

What do you expect from a poll commissioned by the Human Rights Campaign and Americans for Marriage Equality? What did they go to a gay pride parade to take the poll? Any poll can be taken to get whatever results the poll takers want. This is like saying a new poll commissioned by the KKK found that more American voters positively viewed white citizens than black citizens.

Absent anything that even you could confuse with fact to the contrary, the best you can do is a limp the poll's not fair. Sigh. That there is why your on the losing side of history.

I'm sure the HRC will divulge their methodology if you bother to ask them, but it's much easier for you to make unsubstantiated claims, isn't it?
