  1. So how will the “No” to gay marriage defend taking away our rights now that their opinion is the minority?

  2. Sadly I find it difficult to be optimistic by this poll. Similar opinion polls found such results during the run up to Prop 8, but it still failed regardless. I will only ever believe it when I see it, which I am hoping will be in 2012.

    I also don’t think we can be too excited by a poll which uses just over 2000 people to represet the views of a state with a population of around 37 million.

  3. Sorry, I need to clarify. When I say that it failed, I am referring to the No on 8 side.

  4. Who are the one in three democrats opposed? That’s a shocking figure. There is greater support for marriage equality in the UK and neither tories, labour or even Stonewall are pushing for it. Only the Lib Dems are standing up for us. (And Greens…)

    What else can you expect in a Christianist cesspool? There is a huge “famblee” vote, even in San Fransciso. I will believe it only when the figures are borne out at the ballot box and we are given all our rights. I also agree that 2000 people is a ridiculously small figure, given the large population of California.

  6. When millions of Americans actually believe that Obama is the Anti-Christ , you know you have a country that is ‘not well in the head’!

    Yeah, that is a sad, thought, isn’t it?

  8. Dromio, EXACTLY! I guarantee you, David Cameron once elected and his party are going to do NOTHING, just like his predecessor. The Liberal Dems get my vote on this one issue alone even though they won’t win. If more of us supported them, we’d help diminish the majority power of the party in office, either Labour or Tory. Apparently, roughly 60% of the British public support civil marriage equality, far higher than in America. We need to organise and start our own marriage equality movement, putting StonewallUK to shame, an organisation that works against our freedom to marry, for those of us who want to. No British gay couple should have to leave their own country as I and my partner did to do just that. Its shameful and insulting. Neither Cameron or Brown are supporters of FULL equality either. Their silence on civil marriage equality is quite apparent and both oppose it of course. Its up to us to make noise about it as other countries are doing.

    Just to say that there is an equal marriage campaign in Scotland, involving a number of organisations including the Equality Network, LGBT Youth Scotland, the LGBT Network, NUS Scotland, the Metropolitan Community Church, the Quakers, the Humanist Society of Scotland, and others.
