Field of Marital Dreams

Same-sex marriage.jpgIf the new Field poll is on the money, not only is same-sex marriage a done deal in California, but anything looking like the national GOP of the past generation can pack up and head back east. The only religious bloc in solid opposition are evangelicals (those identifying themselves as born again). Other Protestants (by my back-of-the-envelope calculation) are in favor by a small margin, while Catholics are in opposition by a mere three percentage points. Those belonging to other religions split nearly two-to-one in favor, while the religious “nones” are in favor by nearly seven-to-one. Field divides up proponents in other ways–by age, gender, and geography–but no matter how you slice it, the answer’s the same.
