Posted on 05/21/2014 8:31:25 AM PDT by C19fan
Americans' support for the law recognizing same-sex marriages as legally valid has increased yet again, now at 55%. Marriage equality advocates have had a string of legal successes over the past year, most recently this week in Pennsylvania and Oregon where federal judges struck down bans on gay marriage. Two successive Gallup polls in 2012 saw support climb from 53% to 54%, indicating a steady but slight growth in acceptance of gay marriages over the past year after a more rapid increase between 2009 and 2011. In the latest May 8-11 poll, there is further evidence that support for gay marriage has solidified above the majority level. This comes on the heels of gay marriage proponents' 14th legal victory in a row.

That's it, man. Game over, man! Game over! What the *uck are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do?
What a rout although more the speed of which this has happened than it happening. Starting with perhaps the introduction of the pill, marriage as some communal sacred institution has been thoroughly destroyed. Gay marriage is just the coup d'grace.
Our Communist County Executive was running around last night urging every queer couple to get online and file for a license NOW before some EEEEEVIL appeals court issues an injunction.
Sodom Meet Gomorrah.
Too bad the gays can’t find a judge who will void Darwinian law.
As I recall, this is the same organization that predicted a Romney win in 2012.
Probably polled from the LGBT community.
Odd that when it goes up for vote - even in liberal states like California - the voters (in secret) don’t actually approve. But over the phone, knowing the tactics of the gay mafia, they are all in.
Decades of constant promoting the homosexual agenda, in both the news media, and entertainment media, has paid off, hasn’t it?
How many of us will ever forget “Gay Marriage Week” in May 2012, when Obama declared his support for homosexual marriage? My God, I couldn’t believe how the media celebrated for an entire week. A president taking a policy position puts the media into a mediagasm????
And there aren't enough turkey basters, either.
God is in control, not man. He sees this idolatry and open rebellion against His institution.
Man’s worship of sex and himself will not stand.
Christ preformed miracles
Now we see the Antichrist preform Antimiracles
Though the accuracy of a Gallup poll is rather dubious, I have no doubt there were Republicans, some self-described conservatives and a healthy showing of libertarians that rounded out the field.
There was a poll taken in Heaven some years back, and 33% of the respondents said Lucifer would make a better CEO than Jehovah. They’ll suffer for that answer for all eternity, but before they do, they’ll make sure as many of God’s children suffer with them. The poll says 55% of God’s children think Satan makes a better CEO than Jehovah. Not very reasonable is it?
Then comes an all-out revolt.
It is hard for me to buy this poll. We live in liberal land near Seattle, WA and I am not sure that even here “support” is that high. That said... when the leadership in Russia is more conservative than we are on an issue like this it makes you realize what a topsy-turvy world we now live in. Just remember to remind your wife not to look back when you are forced to flee from this land.
these polls are “forum selected”.
It is like cnn or fnc doing their man on the street interviews and all the questioned persons are from NYC.
I can see them moving pretty quickly for prostitution and polygamy, the ones between consenting adults.
Decades ago the Communist Party Congress of the Soviet Union defined their goals to destroy the taboo structure of the most powerful nation on Earth. They are merely finishing it off using little barry bastard boy’s political party. This suits the globalist oligarchy because a nation of we the people sovereigns having such a powerful military to blunt the globalist agenda simply cannot be allowed to remain as an obstacle to one world order, as the Bushes have so openly endorsed, also.
To quote Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty; Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there...It seems like, to me, a vagina as a man would be more desirable than a mans anus. Thats just me.
Couldnt agree with Phil more.
So 55% support for smelly stinky vile filthy butt sex...eeewwwwww!!! Well...they can have it and all the consequences that accompany that unnatural act or abomination against nature — They can lie to themselves all they want, but the simple fact of the matter is when you do what they do and they get what they get they can’t blame anyone else but themselves for the health problems that come with committing unnatural acts against nature — There is a reason that disease is a result of that behavior, “you ain’t supposed to be putting it there.”
55% would choose $hit over shinola apparently.
Since we’re all going queer in this country. . .can I marry my pet duck?
If the Catholic Church had pushed back against the radical libertine agenda starting about fifty years ago, things might look different.
If the support for it is so high, then why does it typically lose at the ballot box? Why must it be imposed by judicial fiat? 55% is very doubtful.
There is no such law.
Virtually all the laws passed specifically outlaw this.
What is happening is that the Judgeocracy is in full rebellion against the populace by nullifying their laws.
Impeach the Judges as Iowa did. Keep doing it until all the power abusers have been replaced.
That's the truth. The ballot box is the only poll that matters. And they have lost over and over in that poll.
Judges are the only thing that matters, the ballot box is irrelevant.
Humble yourselves, seek his face, and pray.
They were otherwise occupied.
sigh . . .
Made my day to read your post in the midst of this madness.
Who ever thought that this white male would be a minority.......
As a side note to the integrity of Gallup poll results, please bear in mind that we’ll probably never see Gallup, or any other pollster, ask people if they know about the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers, or about constitutionally enumerated rights.
Some of these results might reflect a state of moral ambiguity, in which a person says “homosexuality is not for me, but who am I to judge those who are inclined towards it?” From there, it’s a fairly easy slide (down a slippery slope) to acceptance of gay marriage as a sort of civil union with nicer ambience. That sort of opinion can be held by a substantial portion of the population who are not inclined to deep or perhaps even any moral analysis, just the superficial aspects.
Taken in tandem with the growing tendency of the younger population to enter adult life fully brainwashed by the widespread media-driven notion that gay is cool, and the steady attrition of older respondents, an upward trend in the numbers seems inevitable to me.
The only thing that would reverse such a trend would be a deep-rooted religious revival whether or not allied with a rethinking of modern sociological trends in professional circles. Well, of course, there is also the prospect of an external correction by the Creator.
Speaking from Canada where the acceptance of already legalized same sex marriage appears to be closer to 65%, the challenge now is to hold on to core values and beliefs and find the most effective ways of representing them. We are finding that lawfare is being used against opponents of same sex marriage but to defuse the confrontation, some other issue is being advanced as the reason for the lawfare. With our liberal activist judiciary culture, we are finding it tough going up here and could use your support and prayers. You don’t want to go where we have been heading, and that despite the fact that your federal government is currently to the left of ours (an unusual situation in recent times).
I find it disturbing that many of the religious leaders who could be speaking out forcefully are conspicuously silent or even ambiguously supportive of these self-evidently demonic trends. They may have been seduced into silence by this ridiculous distortion of the gospel from “forgive the sinner” to “embrace the sin.” These are not the same concepts in Christian theology and Jesus only preached the first of the two. Modern antichrist voices are preaching the second and with considerable success as we can see.
The polled San Fransicko. (sorry about that imagery.)
It's all in the wording of the question.
Back in 1996 and only 27% favored gay marriage the question read "Do you think marriages between homosexuals should be legal?"
Now, the question in worded much more softly to the point to where there could be confusion."
The question should read:
Are you willing to stand-up against Biblical Law and for what is evil and destructive to Christian society and ultimately face the consequences on Judgement Day and support marriage based on Sodomy?"
Their poll numbers would then be quite different.
That’s why you should look at actual votes on the issue and not what one stranger tells another over the phone about what they think of ‘gay marriage.’ It’s still bad, CA lost 9% on the issue in 8 years, between 2000 and 2008. They only passed prop. 8 by 52% in 2008, they passed prop. 22 by 61%. 2012 NC was where 2000 CA was, but was hailed as a great victory by many. Not good trends, and you can see it from actual votes.
From what I understand the difference is largely generational. Over 65 people are 70% opposed. Under 30 are 80% in favor. Short term the older crowd votes more so it is good, long term the nation needs revival.
Don’t ever be under the illusion that as a minority you’ll receive any State protection.
That dude has like ... 10 fingers on his right hand...
Another victory for you people.
So sodomy is “marriage?” I thought it was sodomy.
Talk about spiritual blindness... God help us.
-— My God, I couldnt believe how the media celebrated for an entire week. -—
According to Beck today, this is orchestrated by Media Matters.
Glenn said that the Blaze has attempted to buy several cable networks, and when they find out that he is the buyer, they back out. It’s not about money.
I have to admit to being shocked. It’s like he’s been blacklisted.
Another fake poll. What was the sample? What was the question and how was it worded? What is the voter breakdown?
Thanks. It is a misleading question. I think the “with the same rights as traditional marriages” changes the general question.
That is for sure. However, being an adherent of Judeo-Christian Western Culture I do not need their protection. They need my protection and productivity. Neither of which they will get a bit of anymore.
