Americans Cool With The Gay Marriage, Don't Care About Your Dumb Religious Freedom
Awwwww, sad news for Bigot-Americans. Again:
A majority of Americans believe businesses should not be allowed to refuse services based on their religious beliefs in the wake of controversies in Indiana and Arkansas over gay rights and religious freedom, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found on Thursday. [...]
The poll found solid opposition to allowing businesses to refuse services or refuse to hire people or groups based on religious beliefs.
Fifty-four percent said it was wrong for businesses to refuse services, while 28 percent said they should have that right. And 55 percent said businesses should not have the right to refuse to hire certain people or groups based on the employer's religious beliefs, while 27 percent said businesses should have the right.
Guess that means Regular Americans really don't care about that "Christian-owned" pizzeria being LITERALLY HOLOCAUSTED just like Anne Frank -- a pizzeria that has raked in so much money from the wingnut welfare system, they're literally giving it away to fellow oppressed Americans, like that Washington florist who can't do wedding arrangements, even for her favorite gay customers, because of her Bible sexytime "relationship with Jesus."
Is there more bad news for bigots? Why yes, there is:
The poll, conducted April 6 to 8, also found that 52 percent of Americans support allowing same-sex couples to marry, far more than the 32 percent who oppose it.
Guess that means when the Supreme Court lets us know (soon, guys, so soon!) that it really is A-OK and also constitutional too for gays to do marriage to each other, a majority of the country will be dancin' in the streets, while a minority of florists and bakers and pizza-makers, and that asshole Bryan Fischer, will be sobbing into their pillows about how this is the end of everything.
