What do the Polls say about Same-Sex Marriage ?
Eight national polls on same-sex marriage have been conducted so far this year, according to the PollingReport.com database. The consensus of these polls is that support for same-sex marriage now exceeds opposition to it; on average, the polls have 51 percent saying they approve same-sex marriage, and 43 percent saying they are opposed.Nate Silver
The Supreme Court is wading into the fight over same-sex marriage at a time when public opinion is shifting rapidly in its’ permission of gay and lesbian couples to wed. To date, 40 states don't allow it. Supporters of Proposition 8 say the court should respect the verdict of California voters who approved the ban in 2008 and let the fast-changing politics of gay marriage evolve on their own.

In this show, I will talk to Professor Anthony C. Infanti, of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law about the two cases the US Supreme Court heard this past Spring regarding same-sex marriage. We will review the cases, and what each is about, and then discuss some of the options for what the Court may do in June when their decision is slated to be announced.
There is mixed information out there that predicts that a decision may end all questions about the legality of same-sex marriage, but in reality, the decision may create more questions than it resolves. What may be answered, and what may be next for same-sex couples, especially those in Pennsylvania? How is each of the two decisions expected different? And are there questions that are of interest to law scholars, but that may mean anything practically to same-sex couples or their opponents?
Lastly, I want to talk to Tony about how activism plays a role (or doesn't when it comes to the Supreme Court, and ask him to weigh in on the relationship of court decisions to legislative and other efforts for same-sex marriage.
As a heterosexual diversity professional, I have had connections to the LGBT community for my entire life. And I am a devout Christian. My children's godfather is gay. A very close personal friend of our family was gay. And I have had lesbian friends for many years. For me, it's just the way it is…some people are straight like me. Some people are not. And in that spirit I openly endorsed the Massachusetts court ruling on same sex marriage in 2004, much to the horror of some of my would be friends and clients. Now nine years later LGBT and same sex marriage issues are part of our everyday conversation. And today, to shed light on a very personal experience of what it's like to live in the LGBT community, my guest is Simma Lieberman. My friend for many years. A well respected diversity and inclusion consultant from Berkeley, California. And a lesbian mother who recently shared her evolution on same sex marriage following the death of her partner of 18 years, Sandra Brown. Her commentary was just published on the CNN website…and its heartwarming account of two women in love will cause you to re-examine your own perspective on LGBT issues. Stop long enough and listen to today's show. And share the interview with your friends and colleagues so that you can explore LGBT issues with greater clarity and confidence.
