As you have probably heard, a new poll says that there is a stunning collapse of opposition to gay marriage.
This is due to the influence of the media, and the influence of the White House and other prominent figures. Now that the President, a former President, a Republican Senator, and other politicians have come out in support of gay marriage, it lends credibility to the gay marriage cause. Almost 300 corporations voiced their support of gay marriage by filing a brief with the Supreme Court.
But the big player is the news media. They print/post articles that are slanted toward the viewpoint that gay marriage should be the law of the land. As an example, in one issue of USA Today, there were no fewer than three stories on gay marriage. And remember, this was in just one issue, Tuesday, March 19, 2013. See the articles below. Is it any wonder that Americans are slowly approving of gay marriage? This is just one issue in one newspaper. Multiply that by hundreds of newspapers, the internet, people of influence, etc. and you will see why the opposition to gay marriage is eroding.
First there is a story on Hillary Clinton changing her views, or should we say, elucidating her views, to support gay marriage. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2013/03/18/hillary-clinton-gay-marriage-obama-bill-clinton/1996461/
Another story was about Senator Portman’s gay son, and about him endorsing gay marriage instead of doing the right thing. http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2013/03/18/dewayne-wickham-on-portman-and-gay-marriage/1994423/
Then they had an opinion poll via Twitter that asked where you stand on gay marriage. http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2013/03/18/gay-marriage-supreme-court-your-say/1997973/
And if that wasn’t enough, there was even an article about birds adapting to their environment that said it was a result of evolution.
There is no doubt that the news media is influencing people with their stories that they print based on their pro-homosexual beliefs. That is why opposition to gay marriage is eroding. See a timeline that shows the slow approval of gay marriage.
Soon it will be against the law to speak against gay marriage. It is almost to that point now, as a folk singer “disparaged” gays at one of her concerts and as a result, most of the venues of her tour cancelled her show.
And she even has friends in the LGBT movement. Many of her fans said her career is over.
So what does that tell most Americans, including those in the public eye? It says your career is over if you come out against the homosexual lifestyle and against gay marriage. It even happened with Tim Tebow, who is a Christian, after word got out that he was speaking at a Baptist church that was against homosexuals. He abruptly cancelled his speaking engagement. As I said, soon it will be against the law to say anything against gays. For Christians, it will soon force them to make a choice – persecution for their beliefs, or acceptance of the sin that God hates. Someday soon you will have to make a choice. I pray we may all stand for God and against the world.
