Scottish people support marrige equality #nom
CatholicCulture.org is reporting that a survey by Opinion Research Business, found that 53% of respondents agreed that homosexuals “should not be allowed to redefine marriage for everyone else.” The surprising thing in these poll result is how far the question needs to be skewed to find majority support for unequal tratment of gay families. A more reliable source of public opinion on the issue would be the Scottish Social Attitude Survey of 2010 which found dramatically different results. It says:
For the most part, the extent to which people express discriminatory attitudes has changed little since 2006. However, there has been a further significant decline in expression of discriminatory attitudes towards gay men and lesbians. Moreover, support for same sex marriage has increased - by 2010, 61% agreed that gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry.
Of course, two years later there would be even more support (and accelerating) in public opinion polls. In fact, it is predicted by Scotland will have marriage equality by the end of 2012.
