POLL: Even Mainers who might want to embolden anti-equality fear lines can't do it

by Jeremy Hooper

Zack Ford reports on a new PPP poll showing that marriage equality has brought no ill effects to Maine:

What’s most notable is how little impact a year of marriage equality has had on its detractors. Only 13 percent feel that it’s had a negative impact on their lives, compared to 87 percent who believe it’s had a positive (15 percent) or neutral (72 percent) impact. Even among those who are opposed to marriage equality, 70 percent acknowledge that it hasn’t actually negatively influenced their lives.
FULL: POLL: Maine Voters Unfazed By Marriage Equality [Think Progress]

This is not news to reasonable thinkers who have examined any of the states where marriage equality has been in place for any number of years. But since the anti-gay groups keep playing pretend about the ickies and spookies that supposedly come coupled with our civil marriage rights, we must keep calling their bluff. With raised consciousness, perhaps even their consciences will burn too fully for them to continue with the same charade.
