On towleroad.com and advocate.com, there is the report that LGBT marriage, or marriage equality, is now favored by over 49% of the population, versus 46% against equal marriage:
A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows support for marriage equality among Americans at an all-time high. According to the poll, 49 percent support same-sex marriage, while 46 percent oppose it. This is the first time supporters of same-sex marriage have outnumbered opponents in an ABC/Post poll.
This is interesting news! In light of the PCUSA amendment 08-B losing--but by a slim margin--by the time we vote again this country will be more or less embracing LGBTQ people as equals in terms of marriage.
And our PCUSA committee looking at the definition of marriage will still be meeting and considering the defintion of marriage while the rest of the country embraces the very thing we are talking about.
