Gay Marriage is Not Welcome by Majority of Americans

To say that I am tired of hearing the left propagandists tell us most Americans approve of gay marriage would be an understatement. We are being inundated with "polls" and lies telling us that we want gay marriage legal throughout the country. Seriously?

There are six states that allow same sex marriage: Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, New York, and New Hampshire along with the District of Columbia. If I am not mistaken, all of these states have legalized gay marriage by statute, not by the will of the people. As a matter of fact, every time the people have been given the chance to decide on this issue they overwhelmingly vote against same sex marriage.

This past week, President Obama gave his rousing endorsement of same sex marriage but also said he believes the states should decide for themselves. Well, Mr. President, the states have been deciding for themselves since 1998 and they continue to do so. The North Carolina vote this past Tuesday was just the latest.

These are the facts: Hawaii granted legislative authority to ban same-sex marriage in 1998. The following states have State Constitutional Amendments that ban same-sex marriage: Alaska, Nevada, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Oregon, Colorado Tennessee and Arizona. California has passed a state amendment against gay marriage twice (in 2000 and 2008) but each time a  judge has struck it down! How can anyone believe Americans want to legalize same sex marriage when one of the most leftist states in the union has voted against it two times?

These states have State Constitutional Amendments that ban same-sex marriage and civil unions, but not other contracts: Nebraska, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Utah, Kansas, Texas, Alabama, Idaho, South Carolina, South Dakota, Wisconsin (!), Florida and North Carolina.

Only Michigan and Virginia have amendments that ban same-sex marriage, civil unions, and other contracts.

By my count that's 31 opposed, 6 in support along with the District of Columbia.

Why do we continually allow a minority of the population tell us what to think, what to do and what we want? It is past the time for us to do a little thinking and research instead of believing the constant propaganda and lies from the government and the media.

If it is true that Americans want to legalize same sex marriage, please tell me the reason we overwhelmingly vote against it every time. Obviously, we don't want it and those votes are the polls that count.

What I can't understand is why so many are opposed to same sex marriage. I know it's not "Biblical" and has no foundation in scripture, but the whole thing with marriage is it is no longer a matter of religion. You don't even need a preacher any more. The "state" has usurped complete control of it. You can't get married unless "the state" says you can and you pay the tax on it. As I see it gays should be able to have the same rights, privileges and responsibilities that my wife and I enjoy. Two men, or two ladies, getting married does nothing to change our marriage. I say let them go for it.

Great article!!! More people need to hear the truth. The news media need to be exposed as the propaganda machines that they are.

Why do homosexuals believe they should be allowed to be participants in marriage. Two people of the same sex can not be married. What else do you have to say to make that clear. Marriage is an institution initiated by God for one woman and one man to be joined as one flesh in holy matrimony. It is a holy institution. How does two homosexuals attempt to claim any right to be a part of such an institution. They can play house and do whatever they like, but don't expect the benefits of being married to be awarded to you. The benefits that a married couple has is recognition of the fact that the couple is part of the institution initiated by God and the blessings of God Almighty are upon that home because of it. It's our governments and our society's way of promoting marriage for all it's beneficial effects upon the community at large. You can not be expected to equate marriage (which is of one man and one woman united in matrimony) and a same sex union as equals. Homosexuality is a deviant behavior and should be avoided. The participants should be helped to rid themselves of the behavior and learn what is natural of human kind. It is a free country. They can be deviants if they like, but the behavior should be discouraged, shunned and never promoted.
