What do most people really think about marriage?

Results from a new national survey suggest that liberals are not listening to mainstream America when it comes to homosexual "marriage."

Liberal groups like to point to the supposed increase in support for same-gender marriage, but Brian Brown and the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) examine a more recent poll commissioned by WPA Opinion Research.

"Folks should not listen to the mainstream media and supporters of same-sex marriage when they try and claim that the majority of Americans support same-sex marriage," Brown insists. "This poll makes very clear that that is not the case. 53 percent of American voters agree that marriage should be defined only as the union between one man and one woman."

So Brown says the public "is being sold a false bill of goods by the mainstream media, and the attack on religious liberty is not coming; it's already here."

But Americans are becoming better educated on the homosexual agenda.

"I think as Americans have seen the example of Kelvin Cochran, the Atlanta fire chief fired for standing up for his religious beliefs, the florist Barronelle Stutzman fined by the state for standing up for her beliefs regarding marriage -- as people have seen this, it's become even more clear," the NOM spokesman speculates.

According to the poll, 61 percent agree that states and their citizens should have the authority to define marriage, and 81 percent believe that people ought to be free to follow their religious beliefs about marriage and follow their faith in how they run their businesses.
