The Religiosity of a State=Whether or Not Gay Marriage Happens!

On "Blow Blog" on, Charles Blow argues that the reason VT went with gay marriage so easily as a legislative victory is because they are not a religious state, or as much a religious state as other states.

Opponents of gay marriage often base their arguments on religious texts. “Homosexuality is a sin – an abomination.” “Marriage is between men and women.” “Blah, blah, blah.” (It’s baffling how intelligent people try to derive a well-rounded set of modern mores from books written by men who didn’t even know that the world was round. But, I digress.)

So does the sense of "being religious" in a state predict how easily gay marriage is accepted as a norm?
