USA: Rasmussen Says 85% Think Businesses Should Be Able To Turn Away Gays

Written by scott on July 13th, 2013

titleIn 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.

    Those questions are worded in such an incredibly biased way as to have no validity whatsoever! It’s incredible that they have paired refusing service to someone who is gay with someone who is wearing a certain sentiment on a t-shirt! The whole thing is absolutely slanted and should be tossed!!
