I'm not surprised at all. People apparently already accept that they don't own their minds and their bodies (war on drugs and other victimless crime), so taking away the ownership of their life (what's left of it) isn't that big a deal. And then there's religion: "we are but unworthy servants, oh Lord..." Don't you just looove auto-oppression. Like I said, no surprise here...
