Posted on 06/25/2015 9:03:37 AM PDT by Engraved-on-His-hands
Republican groups that support same-sex marriage want to send a message to their party's voters and candidates: We are not an anomaly.
Two right-leaning groupsAmerican Unity Fund and Project Right Sideare releasing a poll that they say shows that most voters support gay marriage, and a higher proportion of Republicans support gay marriage than measured before.
The poll surveyed 2,000 registered voters nationally by phone this month, including 798 Republican and lean-Republican voters, along with 500 voters in the early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
The poll found that 57 percent of all registered voters favor legalizing gay marriage, and 59 percent of voters said they would accept the Supreme Court's forthcoming decision on same-sex marriage as the law of the land, even if that means accepting legal same-sex marriage nationwide. Of Republican voters surveyed, just 39 percent favor legalization, and 44 percent said they would accept the Supreme Court's ruling.

People will be upset about the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on homosexual marriage, in which the Supreme Court will almost certainly legalize homosexual marriage across the land. However, the inevitability of this ruling occurred many years ago and is not so much the fault of liberal activists but of the millions of so-called conservatives who were conscientious objectors in the culture war. Once the Supreme Court ruled in Lawrence vs. Texas in 2003 legalizing homosexuality throughout the United States, the culture war was basically over. (Yet many so-called conservatives still did not realizeor deniedthat such a war was actually occurring.)
After Lawrence v. Texas we went from We just want the right to be with a dying loved one in the hospital to people of conscience being fined, fired, not allowed to graduate from college, and even jailed for merely stating their belief that homosexuality is wrong. (Many, with their heads in the sand, still don’t even realize that this is happening in growing numbers.)
Yet homosexuality is not the real issue. It is merely this generation’s tip of the spear in a war against God. Each generation or time will have it’s own issues. For each issue and time people decide whether they will be for God, against God, or merely try to sit on the sidelines. Those of the third group are by far the most evil.
Yeah, accept your status as a well-paid member of a debating and rubber stamp society. The benefits are even more awesome.
He was right.
Where can one move to??
I won’t shut up to homosexuals or anyone about this.
“”Two right-leaning groupsAmerican Unity Fund and Project Right Side””
never heard of them, probably leftist groups pretending to be conservative
WHO are behind these GROUPS?? STEVE SCHMITT??? NICOLLE WALLACE??? MARK MCKINNON??? Might as well be George Soros.
The GOP's battle cry.
Who needs these people and this party. They're/its utterly worthless.
Not sure there’s anywhere left to move to, but I’m all ears if anyone has a suggestion........
I fear the day will come when I will say that I no longer love my country.
Even before today’s ruling, I was (and am) convinced SCOTUS will rule in favor of the gays. I will be very surprised (pleasantly) if they don’t.
There comes a time when the only moral place to move is toward the sound of the guns.
I still love half of it. The other half I hold in complete and utter contempt.
Oh, I am getting closer by the day
I will never stop fighting evil. And that is what this grotesque deviancy is. If America itself succumbs to this evil, then America itself becomes expendable.
As stated so aptly, “Resistance is futile”
