POLL: In UK, 71 Percent Support Marriage Equality

A new YouGov poll finds that 71 percent of people in the UK approve of the British government’s plan to embrace marriage equality. Similarly, 71 percent also support allowing faith groups to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies if they choose. Numerous faith groups have attacked the plan, and just today, the Church of England said it is “not legally sound” and would change the “intrinsic nature of marriage as the union of a man and a woman.”
