Tell that to Perez Tittybags Hilton.
Majority of Americans Continue to Oppose Gay Marriage
No change in support from last year
Americans’ views on same-sex marriage have essentially stayed the same in the past year, with a majority of 57% opposed to granting such marriages legal status and 40% in favor of doing so. Though support for legal same-sex marriage is significantly higher now than when Gallup first asked about it in 1996, in recent years support has appeared to stall, peaking at 46% in 2007.
The lack of change in public opinion on same-sex marriage seen in the new USA Today/Gallup poll occurs in an environment in which an increasing number of states have taken steps to legalize such unions. Same-sex marriages are now legal in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, and Iowa, and will be legal in Vermont in September.
So why don’t they get it? You want rights? Go for it. Take ’em. They’re rights for everyone. You want a definition? Your beef’s with Webster.
