There’s a new, large poll out on homosexual “marriages” from the Public Policy Institute of California.
It’s got some things that pro-family citizens won’t like. But keep reading, because it’s a shot in the arm that should get you talking to others about the natural and beautiful institution of marriage between a man and a woman, the very foundation of family.
The March 9-16 PPIC poll found that support for homosexual “marriage” legalization is edging up in California. Among all adults, more say they favor (50%) same-sex “marriage” than oppose it (45%). This is a five percent increase from similar polls between 2004 and 2009, when support for the notion of homosexual “marriages” hovered around 45%.
Sadly, majorities of Democrats (64%) and independents (55%) support destroying the natural definition of marriage. However, most Republicans (67%) oppose redefining marriage. Most whites (55%) express support for homosexual “marriages,” while Latinos are more opposed (51%) than in favor (43%) of altering the foundation of familia.
How accurate is the poll? Telephone polls are less accurate than they used to be, because a lot of conservatives won’t talk to pollsters who ring their home or cell phone.
Ultimately, the only poll that matters is on Election Day. The PPIC poll claims that likely voters supported homosexual “marriage” legalization 49% to 45%. But that’s not very reliable since the poll identified “likely voters” based on what people said about themselves, not on their actual voter records.
WHAT SAVECALIFORNIA.COM IS SAYING
I had the privilege of telling the truth about this issue to millions of Latinos that read La Opinion, California’s largest Spanish-language newspaper.
Randy Thomasson of the organization SaveCalifornia.com said the PPIC survey had spoken with people who are not necessarily voters.
“This poll is a wake-up call to start talking about the importance of nature, morality, marital oneness, and children. Caring about the most important things in life means supporting marriage for only a man and a woman.”
The Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman does not support gay marriage but civil unions and same-sex couples to adopt children.
Steve Poizner, Republican candidate for governor is also in favor of civil unions but not gay marriage. As the only Democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown is sympathetic to the marriage of same-sex couples, calling it a fundamental right.
HOW TO RESPOND
Don’t be complacent. Let this horse-race poll be your wake-up call that marriage licenses are up for grabs. If you don’t know it yet, hear it now: Homosexual activists want to qualify a constitutional amendment to override Prop. 8 in 2012 or 2014. This would be a war for marriage licenses all over again.
So take action today. Talk to children and young adults and, as appropriate, sensitize them to the importance of protecting the natural institution of man-woman marriage. Tell them the facts:
• CHILDREN: An extensive body of research proves that children do best with a married father and mother. Yet children raised in homosexual environments experiment homosexually themselves and develop gender identity problems.
• LONGEVITY: Marriage between a man and a woman lasts, on average, 10 times longer than homosexual relationships.
• HEALTH: Monogamous sex between a faithfully married husband and wife is the only true “safe sex” around, while homosexual “sex” is inherently unhealthy.
• BIOLOGY: It’s a lie to promote same-sex “marriages” because men and women are biologically created for each other, not men for men or women for women.
• SPIRITUAL TRUTH: In the Bible, God consistently says that marriage is only for a man and a woman. To disagree with this exclusive, sacred definition is to go against God Himself.
“No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”
U.S. Founding Father Samuel Adams, 1775
