That blogress asks her readers, “What surprises you the most here?” Well, I’m no longer surprised that nearly 3 in 5 Americans find gay relationships morally acceptable. It corresponds with the numbers we’ve seen in Pew and Gallup surveys on state recognition of same-sex civil unions. The changes is social attitudes I blogged about here are very real.
What surprised me was the moral issue on which there is there greatest concord in America, marital fidelity. It seems my “gut feeling” about monogamy is more than just a visceral reaction, but something with which more than 90% of my fellow Americans can relate. And it’s something to bear in mind when we’re talking about state recognition of same-sex marriage.
