That new Washington Post/ABC News poll that found record support for marriage even in states that passed laws banning same-sex marriage after 2004 is a real problem for the bigots. They can’t admit that people are just becoming less like them, so it must be “leftist propaganda.”
“The leftists’ propaganda is working,” Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, says of the Washington Post-ABC News poll published this week.
In the poll, 50 percent said the U.S. Constitution gives homosexuals the right to marry under its guarantee of equal protection. Forty-one percent said it did not.
The poll also found a supposed record high of respondents, 59 percent, said they support same-sex marriage.
“The media and the entertainment industries are changing public opinion rather than reflecting public opinion, as you would expect and hope that they would,” Barber suggests.
Because of the propaganda, he adds, “people don’t scratch beneath the surface, don’t understand the facts and are easily swayed,” when the propaganda is overwhelmingly on one side of an issue.
