    Of course. Fail to understand how anyone could think differently in 2017.

    Do peoples opinions change over the years or is it just that people are afraid to express their true opinions any more for the fear of being labelled?

    Yes.

    2 people who love each other being married isn't going to cause the breakdown of society just because they both have the same genitals.

    I think the former, but it could be either of course.

    There has been a shift for the good in many areas from 100 years ago and people are generally less racist, sexist, homophobic, and bigoted (not that I was around 100 years ago, but that's the impression I've got).

    Maybe perception is an issue and people don't want to say their beliefs as they'd be labelled one of the above these days - that would be hard to measure.

    I'd be disappointed if this poll wasn't 100% yes though.

    I couldn't do the Poll on my phone but it's a yes from me too.

    I have met and know some lovely couples in this situation and all that matters to me is that they have both found happiness with each other.

    Two of tbe three couples I know personally also now have children and are fantastic parents.

    Civil definitely yes. Marriage I'm fine with but equally churches should have the right to say no if it is against their beliefs.

    Oddly the more pertinent question is maybe should two people of the opposite sex be allowed to have a civil partnership.

    We seem to now be in the rather odd position in the UK where heterosexual couples have less options that those that are not.


    Anyway I've always said each to their own so if same sex couples want to be married then that's fine by me.

    You're right.

    I can't understand a same-sex couple wanting to get married in a church anyway.

    I think if you'd done this poll when I was at school 30 years ago you'd get 0-14 the other way. And possibly an offer to have a square go for even asking the question. Even five years ago I think you'd get a fair few folk saying how disgusting it is. Just shows how times have changed.

    Even in an Episcopalian church?

    Same sex marriage is fine with me I don't see any problems with it personally.

    I think the next big decision humanity will need to make is whether people will be allowed to marry their robot. AI is going to make these sex dolls very life like and id wager that people want to marry them and argue AI has consciousness.

    That's the same conversation people would have had about same-sex relationships in the 70s

    Yep I would think in the future people with these views will be seen as being backward and ignorant.

    Yep and I'll admit I would have been one of them, and I was at school more recently than that.

    Yet another YES vote for me though

    Maybe they're scared of being persecuted the same way the subjects of this thread were years ago? The silent minority/majority (delete as applicable).

    Personally, whatever makes people happy is fine by me and, if you find love (even if it's with a Stratocaster) then good for you. We have more than enough grief in the world to go around these days.

    Don't fret, you can always get by with pick ups. Especially if they're hum-buckers.



    Back to the serious subject .......

    All single coil and no humbucker? That's just not natural.
