    A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that 54% of Catholics now support same-sex marriage, while 38% opposed it. This figures show a 5% rise in support for same-sex marriage since last December among Catholics. It is interesting to note that American voter support for same-sex marriage also inched up to 47% in favor and 43% against, which is lower than the 54% of Catholics in favor of equal marriage and the 38% against. The poll also showed a major reversal since July 2008, when the majority of American voters did not support same-sex marriage and a poll found then that 55% opposed it while only 36 percent supported it.

    This compares to a 48 – 46 percent statistical tie among all voters on same-sex marriage December 5 and reverses the 55 – 36 percent opposition in a July, 2008, survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

    This is great news. Lets hope that the percentage of Roman Catholics that support gay marital equality continues to increase by large numbers. This could really help put some intense pressure on the Vatican leadership.
