Poll: U.S. divided on same-sex marriage

Poll: U.S. divided on same-sex marriage - Politics - MSNBC.com
The poll released Sunday found that 50 percent of Americans disapprove of gay and lesbian marriages, while 37 percent approve and 11 percent are neutral.
Although the poll found that half of Americans disapprove of gay marriages, 46 percent of those surveyed said they support civil unions that would provide gay couples with “some, but not all of the legal rights of married couples.” Forty-one percent opposed civil unions.
Americans older than age 65, Republicans, Protestants, regular churchgoers and Southerners were more likely to oppose gay marriage.
People under age 35, Democrats and people who do not attend worship services or attend sporadically were more likely to support gay marriages.

Woohoo. Only half of America are narrow minded bigots. Guess they missed that "All men are created equal" thingie (I must have missed the "unless they are buggering other men" clause). Well, and the "Pursuit of happiness" thingie too. Not to mention that "Seperate but Equal", isn't. I'd like to leave you with one of my favorite sayings. Prejudice is narrow minded, broaden your mind and hate everyone.
