Delaware just became the 11th state to pass marriage equality!

Same-sex marriage licenses will be available starting on June 1st, the result of a 12-9 state senate vote to codify marriage equality in the state of Delaware. Democratic Governor Jack Markell signed the bill just minutes after its legislative passage, bringing to a conclusion the tireless work of activists within the state.

I’m endorsing Mark Sanford for Congress because no one has done more to expose the sexual hypocrisy of traditional values in America today. Mark Sanford has demonstrated by his words and his deeds that traditional values are shameful and that he will not live by such rules. His open embrace of his mistress in the name of love, breaking his sacred marriage vows, was an act of bravery that has drawn my support.

And he wasn’t the only one: Three other politicians who are outspokenly opposed to marriage equality voted for the “Marriage for All” bill. Guaino was mocked by his colleagues on the other side of the aisle, and subsequently changed his vote. However, it didn’t matter; the bill passed by over 100 votes and now heads François Hollande, the country’s Socialist president, who campaigned on the issue of gay marriage and will sign the bill. source

CBS News poll measures emerging majorities on gay rights

  • 53of Americans believe it should be federally (edit: erroneously labeled it federal, our apologies) legal for same-sex couples to marry, according to a CBS News poll — though there is a +/- 3 margin of error.
  • 57of Americans believe there is nothing objectionable about same-sex relationships, a big shift — back in 1978, Gallup polled a 60% majority which believed homosexuality was “wrong.”
  • 53of Americans believe that homosexuality is neither changeable, nor a chosen trait. source

See our full slideshow on changing attitudes towards gay marriage.
In 2001, Americans opposed same-sex marriage by a 57% to 35% margin.
Today, there is slightly more support for same-sex marriage than opposition to it, with 48% in favor and 43% opposed.

Pretty straightforward.

Interesting to see the opposition spike temporarily in 2004 and 2009, the two times over the last decade that same-sex marriage was most politicized, foremost as a wedge issue in the Bush re-election campaign, and subsequently in the aftermath of California’s approval of Proposition 8.
