Poll shows British Muslims more supportive of "gay rights" than generally believed

Ian Dunt has an interesting story in UK Politics, reporting that British Muslims are more supportive of equal rights for gay people than believed, given that the religion as a whole has a reputation for extreme anti-gay bias. The link is here

Today, CNN broadcast a number of letters regarding the recent passage of gay marriage in New York State.  Some viewers reflect the libertarian sentiment: the state should get out of “marriage” altogether, leave it to the church, and let civil unions contracts work equally for same-sex and opposite-sex couples. Simple logic. But at least one viewers went back to "religion" as to what is "un-Christian".
