A July 10-14 poll by Gallup found support for gay marriage at 54%, a record high, and double the support of 27% Gallup first measured when the question was asked in 1996.
A July poll by USA Today found that 55% of Americans supported gay marriage while 40% did not.
A May 9 Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 55% of Americans supported gay marriage while 40% did not.
A March 20–24 CBS News Poll found that 53% of Americans supported same-sex marriage, 39% opposed it, and 8% were undecided.[16] The same poll also found that 33% of Americans who thought same-sex couples should be allowed to legally marry said they once held the opposite view and had changed their opinion.
A March 7–10 Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 58% of Americans support same-sex marriage while 36% opposed. The poll indicated that 52% of GOP-leaning independents under 50 years old supported gay marriage
Unquote.
As time moves forward? So does education, and the realization that marriage **equality** harms absolutely **nobody** but does grant equal rights for a sizable fraction of our citizens.

Creationism is no excuse for having an opinion. Get mentally well first, and there is a whole world of honest thought open to you.

Arguing against equal protection of the law for fellow citizens is unAmerican, unintelligent, and simply wrong.

Congratulations, you have proven that you are unAmerican, unintelligent, and wrong.

It's not middle ground to be a 100% bigot, with regards to marriage equality.

Sorry, but that's the facts, Jack.

Brian I have two questions for you.
1. Do you like to read as much as you like to talk?
2. Do you believe things change or do you think everything should stay the same forever?

A broad definition of marriage includes those that are monogamous, polygamous, same-sex and temporary.

Repeating your bullsh*t creationist opinion on marriage is not "taking the moral high ground" Brian.

You can't fool us after centuries of lies.

You may be discussing it, but you sure don't represent it.

85% Think Christian Photographer Has Right to Turn Down Same-Sex Wedding Job

Americans draw a fine line when it comes to respecting each other’s rights. If a Christian wedding photographer who has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage is asked to work a same-sex wedding ceremony, 85% of American Adults believe he has the right to say no. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only eight percent (8%) disagree even as the courts are hearing such challenges.

Does he have the same right to turn down a mixed race wedding? A Black wedding? A Asian Wedding? A Yankee wedding? Where do you draw the line and why is your standard on the line you draw?

None of those Christians turned down a mixed race wedding, black, Asian or Yankee wedding; those aren't radical changes to marriage law. Some of those marriages existed in Biblical teaching, all written marriage law before the 21st century defined marriage as male/female.

We oppose forcing Christians to participate in same sex weddings under threat of fines and lawsuits. They are starting with Christians, your group is next.

Interracial marriage wasn't? When there were specific laws that prohibited it? You don't follow history, do you?

Sorry. If you hold a business license, you agree to follow ALL laws and statutes that govern it. If as a business owner you need to break the law based on your religious beliefs, then you need to find another line of work.

We don't create laws that harm millions of law-abiding Americans simply to protect the "right" of a few business owners to discriminate against them.

That would be insane.

Ah, so now we're at the crux of it - you want to be able to choose the laws you get to follow and the ones you get to ignore.

Creationism is a formal thought disorder, which created your opinions about marriage Brian.

You can't fool us with your mentally ill opinions - they're worthless without proof of the god you claim is real.

Religious liars lie Brian want special priviledges, because they've been infected with the mental illness of creationism, which denies other human beings dignity and freedom.
