Reports of an online poll appear to show that half of gay and bisexual Britons reject the idea that there is “no need” to change the law on marriage because of civil partnerships, and 77 percent do not accept that marriage should be reserved exclusively for straight people.
The full details of the ComRes poll commissioned by religious campaign group Catholic Voices will not be released until the weekend, but some figures have been reported this morning in the Daily Telegraph as signalling “doubt” in the gay community.
From the report, it appears only 26 percent of gays agreed with the idea that as civil partnerships already provided the legal benefits of marriage, there was “no need” to change the law.
