Poll: The state of gays in the state that begat Clinton

by Jeremy Hooper

    A new University of Arkansas, Fayetteville poll indicates that 65% of the state's residents think sexual relationships between two adults of the same sex is always wrong, 70% approve of a law that would prohibit Arkansas textbooks from defining marriage as anything other than a relationship between one man and one woman, and 54% think there should be no legal recognition of a gay couple's relationship. However, it also shows that 54% do approve of allowing gays to serve openly in the armed forces, and 66% would support a law allowing gays to adopt a child if the court found them fit in all other ways to become an adoptive parent.

So Arkansas gays, if these numbers are to be believed, a majority of your neighbors do think you can adopt a kid and support said kid by fighting for your country, however, they don't want junior learning about or serving as ring bearer at your wedding, as your love life is wrong. We would find this offensive and annoying, but instead we choose to find this backwards and insulting.
