An article by Uwe Siemon-Netto, UPI’s religious-affairs editor, posted on The Layman‘s website (and nowhere else, oddly enough), reports that the latest Pew survey has shown a public backlash in America against homosexuals, perhaps driven in part by the recent court decision in Massachusetts. It isn’t that Americans want to deny equal rights for homosexuals or mind being around them, that much is clear from the survey; but almost all groups (including Democrats, by a small margin, though Siemon-Netto doesn’t mention that datum) oppose gay marriage. The only exception, understandably, is those with no religious affiliation.

I’m not sure of the exact significance of this, but it does make one think.
