A nationwide poll taken by Centre College in Danville shows a majority of Americans favor equal treatment under the law over respecting individual religious beliefs when the two come into conflict.
About two-thirds of Americans feel individuals should be required to serve alcohol, fill prescriptions, and hire gay workers even if doing so would violate their conscience.
On the heels of the Kim Davis saga, 65% of those questioned feel county clerks should be required to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, despite their religious beliefs.
Centre Political Science Professor Benjamin Knoll says fewer respondents felt the same way toward providing wedding ceremony services.
"For example, less than half of Americans agreed that wedding photographers and bakers should be required to offer services to same-sex marriage ceremonies," Knoll told WKU Public Radio. "Only about a quarter of Americans felt pastors and priests should be required to perform marriage ceremonies."
The poll questioned 487 Americans between September 24th and October 1st. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.5%.
The same poll also gauged Americans' opinions on the 2016 presidential race. The full survey can be found here.
