Gay Rights Around the Corner?

A recent poll has revealed that 50% of straight people feel that gays should have the same rights as everyone else. Although the release does not reveal who conducted the poll, but claims that 2,000 people were polled.

Many gave religious reasons for not speaking more openly for gays, even though they feel that they should have equal rights.

Being religious myself, I feel that every person in America should receive the same rights, no matter what their sexual orientation, race, or gender. I know it is not the religious standard to give gays rights, but our laws should not be based on religious preferences. It is stated that we should have a separation of church and state.

I don't see gays getting equal rights in the near future, but possibly in 5 to 10 years. What are your thoughts on the matter? Leave a comment!

Do think it shows some of the ignorance still in people today, that its even a issue if Gays should be allowed to married or even recognized as a couple legally.

There is still the issue even allowing them to be married by the court though of allowing them to be married withing churches. Some feel that while they should be allowed to be married, they should not be allowed to be married in a catholic church for instance.

I agree with you here. They should be legally able to get married, but since the most churches do not recognize gay marriage, they should not be able to marry within a church.

Thanks for the comment!
