3/13: Tolerance for Religious Rights

While there has been growing acceptance of gay marriage in the United States, Americans also value religious liberty.

A majority believes moral conscience exemptions from the law should be allowed.  Many Americans also assert that wedding vendors and public officials with religious objections should not be penalized for denying services to same-sex couples.

Respecting the traditional definition of the family is an  important ideal to notable proportions of Americans.

    actually in my country, its not common yet. and maybe can take more than 10 years for gay marriage to be accepted. I personally think its one of the human rights as long as its not bothering the others.

    I find it unfortunate that my comments about the polling questions didn’t agree with the apparent political feelings of the staff and was therefore eliminated. It might be helpful to state upfront that only comments in agreement with the political position and aim of this organization will be printed. Makes me happy that I attended a real Catholic College, St. John’s University Collegeville, MN

    I find the wording of your poll questions very slanted and extremely misleading. I can’t take your polling data seriously nor have several people I shared it with to promote such a biased outcome. To include the last question about families with parents being both a mother and father is inappropriate and highly divisive. I find it interesting that gay people adopt children with disabilities both physical and developmental at a higher rate than any other group of adoptee including Catholics. To suggest that these children would be better off in a orphanage when they can have at least on if not 2 parents who love them is patently un Christian and outright cruel. This doctrinaire attitude makes Christ shake his head in disgust that his church adherents promote such an unloving and unChristian attitude.
    You should be ashamed of yourselves. Thank God my parish does not share your rather unfortunate views which seem to ignore the message of our Lord.

    It’s actually terribly disheartening for this not to be more like +95% (the approximate percentage of heterosexuals in our Nation). Why does an issue that at its heart only affects 2-5% of the people become such a large issue?

    It looks like they polled members of the Taliban!

    The question about whether details about gay/lesbian behavior should be given in sex ed classes is not a helpful question. From my experience as a parent, many parents are “happy” that schools will give any type of sex-ed information so that they don’t
    “have to.” Also, some could have assumed the question meant that the information given would be stated with a CAUTION THAT THE BEHAVIOR IS UNHEALTHY, UNSAFE, IMMORAL, etc. But there is no way to tell from the way the question was asked. Consequently, I believe the responses gave no useful information at all.

    Frankly I am shocked that 49% are in favor of teaching sexual acts between gays and lesbians in sex education classes in public schools. What in the world is the point of that? It is not as if there will be any reproduction taking place and that is why students were taught about sex in the first place. Will they be teaching about the health risks inherent in anal intercourse, i.e., greater transmission of AIDS in male to male sex as well as other sexually transmitted diseases. Will kids be subjected to learning all about dildos which mimic the male penis for lesbians’ sexual activities? God help us!
