From our friends at Family Research Council:

When did it become acceptable to sacrifice the freedoms of conscience and free exercise of religion on the same-sex “wedding” altar?

Never, if you ask most Americans. In a stunningly lopsided poll, U.S. voters universally supported the rights of companies like Masterpiece CakesArlene’s FlowersElane Photography, and others who turned down “wedding” business from same-sex couples — and are now paying for it (usually literally).

Here are the findings from this new Rasmussen poll:

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. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Those calling for so-called anti-discrimination bills, and the legalization of “same-sex” marriage are actually looking to increase discrimination. The discrimination of those who disagree.
