Wallace Henley has an “exclusive” column in the Christian Post — like the Worldnutdaily, by “exclusive” the Post seems to mean something so mind-numbingly idiotic that no one else would publish it — fantasizing about a “new majority” that steamroll both political parties in the name of anti-gay bigotry and anti-woman policies.
America’s New Majority is fast becoming fact.
Its impact on the nation’s electoral future is thundering down on the land like a tsunami.
And it is every bit as unstoppable as the tidal surge from an 8.6 earthquake in the sea bottom. The tremors have been building for years far below the American political-scape. Huge waves have already hit. They are nothing compared to what is racing toward the United States in the 2016 elections and beyond.
The New Majority tsunami will demolish everything that stands in its path – including the Republican Party establishment and all others who hunker down in denial.
Again, this does not mean that established and newly rising political groups should assume the New Majority is based wholly on philosophy. For the GOP to feel it must embrace homosexual marriage or abortion to reach the New Majority is an insult to many who comprise it. There are Latinos, African-Americans, Asians, and others in the New Majority who embrace a doctrinally formed view of social issues – if not the view of the Bible, then that of the Koran or other religious-cultural traditions.
I’ve got news for you, Mr. Henley: There is nowhere near a majority of Americans who opposed marriage equality. Not even close. Recent polls show that about 55-60% of Americans support it, with only about 40% opposed. And the only demographic group that has majority opposition are those over 65; younger voters are over 70% in favor of it. The only states that have majority opposition are the southern states, which is all the GOP is going to be able to win as long as they keep pushing an anti-gay agenda.
