The future, continued

Update: Raising Kaine has picked up on this survey.

Despite the best Anti-Gay Industry efforts to create a backlash, a poll just released by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press shows that opposition to marriage equality has declined substantially since same sex marriage became the reality in Massachussetts. In particular:

“The number of people who say they strongly oppose gay marriage has dropped from 42 percent in early 2004 to 28 percent now. Strong opposition has dropped sharply among senior citizens and Republicans.”

You can read the entire survey report at Pew Research Center.

What this demonstrates is the power of objective reality and common sense to overcome fear and deliberate misinformation.

To advocate for equality for all families, we simply need to be visible and tell the truth about our families.

To oppose equality for all families, our opponents have to: lie about us, use fear and violence and intimidation to discourage us from being visible, create fake think tanks and “research,” censor works of art and literature, distort scripture, damage family relationships, and distract government from addressing real problems. That sounds like an awful lot of work to be fighting a losing battle.
