Amid growing support for same-sex marriage nationwide, a new poll from Quinnipiac University shows that most Catholics in the U.S. also back same-sex marriage, despite the church's teachings against it.
According to the poll, which surveyed 497 adult Catholics from February 27 - March 4 with a margin of error of +/- 4.4 percent, 54 percent of Catholic voters support same-sex marriage, while 38 percent oppose it. The survey shows a dramatic shift on the subject in the last few years: In a July 2008 poll by Quinnipiac, only 36 percent of Catholic voters said they supported same-sex marriage, while 55 percent opposed it.
Among 1,944 registered voters surveyed in the same poll, 47 percent supported same-sex marriage and 43 percent opposed it. A December poll asking the same question showed a statistical tie on the issue, at 48 percent in support and 46 percent in opposition....
Of course. Would expect this number to rise to 93-95%, for this is the percent having used birth control. When you're into an overwhelming frequency of childfree sex, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Thanks to tens of millions of "Catholics," the marriage equality freeway has been financed, paid for and paved by the pill. SSM has finally come to the world. The time is now.
But of course, the Romish Church encourages the practice of homosexuality, q.v., Clerical Celibacy. I have been putting poll results --for years?--showing the support among the laity for Homosexuality, because they don't pay as much attention to what their priests say as much as what their priests do. Another good reason why The Scandal of the Catholic Priesthood is that exists at all.
