Tomorrow the United States Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments in a same-sex marriage case. Many people expect that the Court will use the case to declare same-sex marriage legal across the country.
Republican presidential candidates find themselves in a bind.
“Rick Santorum said he would never attend a same-sex wedding. Marco Rubio said he might attend one. Scott Walker actually went to a same-sex wedding reception, not to be confused with an actual same-sex wedding ceremony. Ted Cruz said he is firmly opposed to gay marriage, but would be comfortable if his daughter were gay.”
Their staunch opposition to gay marriage has left Republicans in a dilemma. For one, the majority of Americans now support same-sex marriage.
Worse, Republicans could always count on religious conservatives for support against gay marriage. But even that support is now crumbling. A new poll shows that most major religious groups are now abandoning their long held rejection of same sex relationships.
What I find quite interesting in this poll is that even American Muslims are more supportive of marriage equality then white evangelical Christians.
