Norwegians Support Marriage

Timothy Kincaid

April 25th, 2008

According to Aftenposten, the citizens of Norway support the government’s plan to bring about marriage equality.

Left-wing voters of the Socialist Left (SV) and Red parties were particularly supportive, with over 90 percent saying they favored the new Act, which gives equal rights to gay and heterosexual married couples.

The Act gets solid majority backing from Labour and Liberal Party voters as well, just over 50 percent support from Conservative Party voters, and 50 percent of populist Progress Party voters say no.

Christian Democrat Party voters stand out with about 90 percent opposition to the new law proposal.

Thanks for the correction. The script was confusing to American eyes. We haven’t seen “S”‘s rendered that way since the 1700’s.

if “Christian Democrat Party voters stand out with about 90 percent opposition to the new law proposal.”
More evidence to show that its actually christians that have the biggest(cuantitively too) problem with it.

Im not fluid in Norwegian polits but… that 90%+50%+50%+10%, does that amount to a majority in favor of equal rights?
