Ignore the mainstream media: Americans still believe in one man, one woman

For years, the mainstream media has done their level best to make the redefinition of marriage seem inevitable. As if in concert, local, regional, and national outlets have published the results of poll after poll under headlines like “Majority of Americans Now Supports Same-Sex ‘Marriage,’” all in an attempt to silence opposition and create an atmosphere wherein they can finally see the fabrication of same-sex “marriage” achieved. But in order for this to happen, they have to persuade every-day, salt-of-the-earth Americans that the ideal of marriage – a union existing only between one man and one woman – is no longer worthy of defense.

The good news for the media is they may have almost succeeded in persuading a sufficient number of salt-of-the-earth Americans to give up the fight. The bad news for the media is that almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. And when the Alliance Defense Fund and Public Opinion Strategies announced their latest marriage research data on June 16, data that included a scientific national poll conducted May 16-19 of this year, it was quite evident we weren’t playing with horseshoes or grenades.

The research reveals that 62 percent of Americans believe that “marriage should be defined as a union between one man and one woman.” By the way, not only is 62 percent a majority of Americans, it’s a solid majority. And it shouldn’t surprise anyone because it is right in line with what we’ve seen in voter opinion from around the country when those voters have been given the choice to either protect marriage in their state constitutions or leave it open to legal challenges or other attacks.

What should we do with this news?

While it should cheer us, it must also serve as a reminder that we cannot allow ourselves to fall prey to the machinations of the mainstream media, which frequently employs polls not simply to report public opinion, but to frame it.

For example, in July 2010, amid the debate surrounding Proposition 8, the L.A. Times released the findings of a survey which made it look like there was a surge of support for changing the legal definition of marriage in California. However, it was soon learned that the survey had been conducted by a group supportive of same-sex couples, whose goal was to use the survey to “develop religious education strategies supporting gay equality.” The comprehensive ADF and POS research, on the other hand, included numerous focus groups and a scientific survey that did not pose the question in biased language to achieve a particular politically correct result. It simply asked if “marriage should be defined only as a union between one man and one woman.” And the resounding answer—just like at the ballot box—was “yes.”

So, is same-sex “marriage” really inevitable? No more so than the disappearance of the ozone layer that my science teacher warned me about in 8th grade, or the dangers of man-made global warming all the Chicken Littles in the leftist establishment keep talking about, or the likelihood of a cow actually jumping over the moon.

What is inevitable right now are the facts, and those facts say that 62 percent of Americans believe marriage should be defined as a union between a man and a woman.
