In a new Rasmussen poll, 85% think business owners should be able to turn away LGBT folks. Joe.My.God reports:
From the right-slanted Rasmussen: Americans draw a fine line when it comes to respecting each other’s rights. If a Christian wedding photographer who has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage is asked to work a same-sex wedding ceremony, 85% of American Adults believe he has the right to say no. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only eight percent (8%) disagree even as the courts are hearing such challenges.
As Joe notes, Rasmussen is a right-leaning organization. They also asked a series o other questions about whether bar owners should be able to refuse service to those 25 and under to avoid problems, if a bar owner could have a policy to attract women for happy hour, and so forth leading up to the gay questions. I think the answer would have been quite different if the question had been “should it be ok for a business to discriminate against gay clients”. What do you think? Here are the actual questions.
