    First Amendment: In new poll, marriage equality trumps religious objections

    Sixty-one percent of respondents agree that the government should require religiously affiliated groups that receive government funding to provide health care benefits to same-sex partners of employees—even when the religious group opposes same-sex marriage.

    And 54 percent of the public agree that a business providing wedding services to the public should be required to serve same-sex couples, even if the business owner objects to gay marriage on religious grounds.

    These findings are consistent with the dramatic rise in public support for gay marriage—59 percent in a recent ABC News/Washington Post survey (75 percent among those under 30).

    In Oregon my (Christian) organization campaigned in churches against this "religious exemption" law and were cited by Oregon United for Marriage for our help in preventing it from being passed.
