New Poll Finds That By 4 to 1 Americans Choose Religious Freedom Over Gay Rights

As the nation careens toward universal gay marriage it appears–at least with this poll–that not all Americans are on board the rainbow train. A new poll finds that Americans would rather support religious freedom than gay marriage.

The poll was conducted by Caddell Associates–a liberal group.

Americans reacting to the Supreme Court’s approval of same sex marriage desire a truce between religious freedom and gay rights, but if pushed, overwhelmingly side with protecting the liberty of their faith by a margin of 4 to 1, according to a new national survey.

The degree of their fierce support for religious freedom and liberty jumps when given this choice:

“Suppose a Christian wedding photographer has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same sex marriage. If a same sex couple wanted to hire the photographer for their wedding, should the photographer have the right to say no?”

A huge 82 percent said yes.

“When asked which was more important, by a four to one ratio, voters said protecting religious liberty (31 percent) over protecting gay and lesbian rights (8 percent),” said Caddell, who added that most of the rest said both are important.

So, what do YOU support?
