You havenâ€™t heard a lot about these polls because they arenâ€™t good news for the homosexual marriage advocates. Armand C. Hale http://www.alainsnewsletter.com/read/260/marriage-1-man-1-woman/homosexual-activists-taking-aim-at-proposition-8/ Two amendments have been proposed in California to overturn Prop 8, the noted pro-marriage measure approved recently by voters. One is an amateur effort by students which would abolish marriage itself. The second is more formidable, because it has already been filed.
Do these amendments have a chance of being approved by the voters? Have the wave of protests, name-calling, threats to people, and anguished appeals changed Californiaâ€™s opinions on marriage? The answer is "No," according to two new polls.
You haven't heard a lot about these polls because they arenâ€™t good news for the homosexual marriage advocates. The Field Poll shows Californians about equally divided on an Amendment to overturn Prop 8.
Why is that good news? Experts know that anything less than 50 percent support signals big problems for an amendment. It's much easier getting people to vote "No" than to vote "Yes" on new propositions.
The Field Poll underestimated voters' support for marriage with Prop 22 in 2000 and Prop 8 in 2008 by five to seven percentage points.
Compare this poll with the last one before the November elections and ask what the trend is. Public support for protecting marriage as the union of husband and wife is increasing.
The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) reports the same result: increasing public support for marriage and against same-sex marriage. 49 percent of Californiaâ€™s oppose legalizing same-sex marriage, compared to 44 percent who favor it. That's a five percent jump in support for defending marriage compared to PPIC's last poll in October before the elections.
Both Field and PPIC polls underestimated support for Prop 8 last November. PPIC predicted just 44 percent of Californians would vote for Prop 8 while 52 percent actually did.
There's a public backlash against the campaign of intimidation being waged by homosexual activists and a new willingness to stand up for marriage.
An article on March 23, 2009 in the Washington Times titled "Pestered Prop 8 Donors File Suit," tells the story of harassments on Proposition 8 supporters. Chuck LiMandri spoke for thousands of Californians when he described what unexpectedly happened after he donated money to support Prop 8.
"I got about two dozen e-mails and hate phone calls. I was called Nazi, homophobe, bigot. Anyone in California knows it's very widespread. Hardworking people who believe marriage is a union of a man and a woman that donated monies never expected threats in their own homes.â€
American companies like PepsiCo make no effort to hide their support for the homosexual agenda.
The American Family Association (AFA) asked PepsiCo to remain neutral in the culture war. The company refused, and continues to plug the homosexual agenda.
PepsiCo gave $1,000,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HCR), the nation's leading homosexual marriage advocacy organization, and to Parents, Families, Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) to promote homosexuality in the workplace.
Both supported efforts to defeat Proposition 8, the measure defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. HRC received $500,000 from PepsiCo and gave $2.3 million to defeat Proposition 8.
PepsiCo requires employees to attend sexual orientation, and gender diversity training where the employees are taught to accept the homosexuality life style.
PepsiCo is a member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and helped sponsor "Family Guy," a perverted and sick television program on FOX network.
Marriage means a husband and wife. We don't want politicians, judges, television shows, or companies changing that for our kids or our grandkids.
Note: On April 3, 2009 Iowa's Supreme Court justices (not the legislators or the voters) legalized homosexual marriage in a unanimous and emphatic decision that makes Iowa the third state and first in the heartland to allow homosexual couples to marry.
