It appears that more Americans support same-sex marriage than believe in evolution. This is according to Jon Stewart last night on The Daily Show. This comes as more Americans support same-sex marriage than they did last year. Stewart also noted that the reason why the Republicans are not supporting same-sex marriage in droves is because “You cannot ask Republicans to embrace both gay marriage and evolution.”
Stewart noted that it appears that the only thing that will change the mind of a Republican reliably is a life-threatening illness such as a stroke. Not even having a gay son will not realiably change the minds of Republicans when it comes to same-sex marriage, as Stewart noted with the difference between Senator Rob Portman and Representative Salmon.
However, he did note that Salmon’s people have their own unusual mating habits.
