Good News Monday: Americans Evenly Split Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage

A new Pew poll shows adult Americans are evenly split over whether gays and lesbians should be legally allowed to marry. According to the poll, a slim 46% of Americans say gay marriage should not be legal, but 45% say it should be legal; with a 3% margin of error, that makes the results a statistical tie.

Wow. It sounds nice. I mean, "evenly split" is better than the majority are against it, right?

But, according to the poll there is a clear trend that Americans' views are becoming increasingly favorable toward the issue.

That's right. It's becoming more accepted because a few places are allowing it to be done, and the world isn't coming to an end, and hurricanes haven't destroyed Iowa and tornadoes haven't ruined Massachusetts and locusts haven't swarmed through New Hampshire and Connecticut didn't flood and Washington DC didn't sink into the ocean and Vermont didn't burn to the ground.

It's all good.
It's all changing, for the better.
