An overwhelming majority of Americans support religious freedom when it conflicts with gay rights, according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey.
The survey asked, "Suppose a Christian wedding photographer has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage. If asked to work a same-sex wedding ceremony, should that wedding photographer have the right to say no?"
A whopping 85 percent of respondents believe the photographer has the right to refuse to work at a gay wedding if it violates his or her religious beliefs.
Only 8 percent disagreed.
The poll of 1,000 adults was conducted July 7-8 by telephone and had a sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
