Now, I don't put much stock in polls, but a recent survey has found that more than half of Rhode Island voters favor a law allowing gay marriage.
Huh? What? Huh? The most Catholic state is leaning toward equality?
A recently released Brown University poll shows 60 percent of registered voters in the state said they would support a law allowing gay couples to marry. Thirty-one percent said they were opposed.
Right now, bills to legalize gay marriage...marriage equality, people...in the state are before legislative committees in both the House and Senate.
Now, here's why I don't put much stock in polls. This poll was conducted over two days in May with just 593 registered voters statewide. Now, I know Rhode Island is tiny, but I could have gotten more answers standing on the corner of Broad and DeKalb in downtown Smallville.
But, I'll take it with a grain of salt. It's a hint of a twinge of a nudge of an idea of a promise of equality.
