That's not good news to me. Did you know that interracial marriages were not accepted by popular opinion until the early 1990's? When did interracial marriages become legal across the united states? 1967. How many marriages were interracial, less than 2%, if even that?
I hate how people talk about public opinion in regard to gay marriage. If we get gay marriage because the majority supports it then civil rights will not have been advanced at all and what will have been set is a precedent that says it's ok for the majority to decide human equality for the minority.
Nobody should be happy with civil unions or popular support for gay marriage. It has to be handled as a fundamental human right, no compromises, no exceptions.
