Because now we are getting an answer to the question, "How could someone else's marriage ever affect you?"

Unfortunately, now it is enshrined in the Constitution, where it is beyond something as grotesque as "democracy."

//Let me pat myself on the back: I was the first to notice the sharp drop in public support for gay marriage, and I figured it out based solely on the fact the  mainstream media was not reporting the toplines of a recent Reuters poll. That poll, conducted June 26-July 8, showed a 9 point drop in support for same-sex marriage (compared to a May Gallup poll with a similarly worded question).

Now, a new AP poll, conducted July 9-July 13 (three weeks after Obergefell), confirms: support for gay marriage has dropped sharply and concern for religious liberty is skyrocketing.

The AP poll asks, “Do you favor, oppose, or neither favor nor oppose, allowing same-sex couples to be legally married in your state?”  In this latest poll, support for same-sex marriage dropped 6 percentage points from a late April poll, that is, from 40 percent to 34 percent.  Meanwhile, opposition to gay marriage jumped from 30 to 34 percent, adding up to an 11 point swing in less than 3 months.

39 percent approve of the Supreme Court ruling favoring gay marriage and 40 percent disapprove.

Remember, we found in referendum campaigns that the majority of the people who say they don’t know in response to polls ended up being gay marriage opponents afraid to admit their views.

But the poll shows increasing distaste for the aggressive stance that same-sex couples should be able to put people out of business if they don’t cater to gay weddings.  “Do you think wedding related businesses with religious objections should be allowed to refuse service to same-sex couples or not?”  By 59 percent to 39 percent, Americans vote for liberty.//
