Gay Poll

A number of people sent me this link to the conservative "American Family Association" website where they are conducting a poll of what you think of the gay marriage issue. They're going to submit the results to congress. Of course, people learned about the poll primarily through conservative forums. Spreading the link is an attempt to bring balance to the poll.

However, it underscores one reason why the poll doesn't make any sense: that it is unscientific. But even if it were, this issue is about the rights of some people, not what is popular. If a majority of people want to tyrannically impose their beliefs on the minority, should that make congress feel better about it? So this poll disturbs me on a number of levels.
