Pennsylvanians Don’t Support Montgomery County’s Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

According to a new Franklin and Marshall College poll, Pennsylvanians support gay marriage, but not in the way it’s been handled by the rogue matrimony-makers out in Montgomery County. Terry Maddona breaks it down for CBS:

“Seventy-six percent find that practice unacceptable, even though 54 percent of Pennsylvanians support gay marriage,” Madonna said. “So the issue here is not support of gay marriage, but the way in which some officials in this state believe it ought to be accomplished.”

This news, of course, comes less than a week before a state judge will see the gay marriage issue argued in court. Regarding that case, Tom Corbett’s attorneys say that gay couples licensed by the state cannot be married, just like “12-year-olds.” Should the judge rule in favor of Gov. Corbett, the licenses already handed out will be invalid. [CBS]

    I guess that means Dom Giordano no longer thinks Franklin and Marshall’s polls are flawed and Terry Maddona is on the left.
