Support for independence undermined by proposals for same sex 'marriage'

(First Minister compounds his difficulties with Catholics by adopting orans position in defiance of Father Z...?)

Hate to say I told you so but...

SNP plans to allow gay marriage would make Scots less likely to back independence, according to a new poll.
A survey of 1,004 Scots commissioned by the campaign group "Scotland For Marriage" has found that 11% of voters are less likely to vote to end the union if the controversial move to legalise same sex marriage goes ahead.
The poll by ORB Opinion Research Business found that only 2% of voters are more likely to back independence as a result.

  1. Not good reading for independence supporters like myself. But if this is supposed to be some tactic, or a thought process for voting it just doesn't make sense.

    By the same token are they going to be pro-independence once Westminster legislates for it? (Which it even more surely will)

    Maybe voting no as some kind of punishment to Alex Salmond and Co for letting the legislation be introduced under their watch makes a tiny bit of sense, but a tad short-sighted imho.

    Hopefully, prayers will be answered.
