A day late, but better late than never…
Last week’s poll asked, “Should there be a constitutional amendment defining legal marriage as the union between one man and one woman?”
The results, which depressed me a wee bit, broke down like this:
In first place, “No. I’m a progressive for marriage equality for all under secular law” garnered 45 percent of the vote.
Next, 23 percent responded, “No. I’m a liberal for marriage equality for all under secular law.”
There was a tie for third: “No. I’m a moderate for marriage equality for all under secular law,” and “No. I’m a conservative for marriage equality for all under secular law” each received nine percent.
And there was a three-way tie for fourth place: Five percent of the vote went to “Yes. I’m a conservative for one man/woman only under secular law,” to “Yes. I’m a liberal for one man/woman only under secular law,” and most distressingly, to “Yes. I’m a progressive for one man/woman only under secular law.” Imagine: There are liberals and progressives who want to punish people under secular law. These polls are most educational, eh?
In any case, thanks to everyone who participated at Free Speech Central.
Weeks ago, I mentioned that starting in 2004, I would attempt becoming vegetarian in an effort to combat diabetes. Then came the story of a cow in Washington state who tested positive for mad-cow disease (said cow may have come from Canada, it turns out). At last count, 16 nations have now banned US beef. How about you? This week’s poll question is: “Will you stop eating US and/or Canadian beef because of the mad-cow scare?”
