The majority of Scots do not support legal recognition of “gay marriage,” according to a recently conducted poll in the country.
“I hope that the Scottish Government will consider these findings very carefully and accept that objections to their proposals are not primarily religious but exist widely across society among people of all faiths and none,” a spokesman for the Scotland for Marriage campaign said March 14.
“There is clearly no support whatsoever for a society which creates in law a situation which deliberately deprives a child of a mother or a father.”
The Opinion Research Business' January 2012 survey asked 1,004 Scottish adults to agree or disagree with the statement, “Since gay and lesbian couples already have the same rights as married couples available to them under civil partnership, they should not be allowed to redefine marriage for everyone else.”
