Poll shows majority oppose same-sex marriage in Scotland

Catholic World News - March 14, 2012

Most of Scotland’s people oppose a bid to legalize same-sex marriage, a new survey shows.

The poll of 1,004 Scottish adults, conducted by Opinion Research Business, found that 53% of respondents agreed that homosexuals “should not be allowed to redefine marriage for everyone else.” Only 36% disagreed with that statement.

The poll also showed that a huge majority—85%--believe: “It is possible to be tolerant of the rights of others and protective of traditional marriage at the same time.”

"These results demonstrate clearly that Scotland supports marriage, with an overwhelming majority believing that wherever possible every child should be raised by a mother and a father,” noted Scotland for Marriage, the group that commissioned the poll.
