Survey: 3 out of 3 anti-equality groups want you to think equal marriage is unpopular

by Jeremy Hooper

Public Opinion Strategies is a GOP research firm.

The Alliance Defense Fund is the group most aggressively challenging LGBT rights in court, whose most recent "protect marriage" brochure compares homosexuality to bestiality and says same-sex marriage is "rebellion against God."


But never mind those pesky facts. You should probably just trust this survey "survey" more than all of the credible, non-biased ones that show majority support for LGBT rights:

New Survey Shows 62 Percent Of Americans Support Marriage Between One Man And One Woman
June 16, 2011

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council (FRC) responded today to the release of a national survey showing that 62 percent of Americans agree that "marriage should be defined only as the union between one man and one woman." The national survey was commissioned by the Alliance Defense Fund and conducted by Public Opinion Strategies last month.

Regarding the survey Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement:

"This survey demonstrates that more than six in ten Americans have a deep appreciation for the unique benefits that marriage between one man and one woman brings to families and society. There is a broad understanding that marriage between a man and a woman fosters strong families and is indeed the bedrock of civilization.
"This survey is a reflection of the voters in 31 states who have voted overwhelmingly to preserve marriage at the ballot box - with Minnesota, North Carolina and Indiana next in line with referendums.

"As New York legislators debate a marriage redefinition bill, they should consider the impact on families, children and religious liberty. In 2006, the New York Court of Appeals reasonably concluded that the legislature has a legitimate interest in promoting responsible procreation and can 'rationally' believe that children need both a mother and a father.

"Despite many years of lawsuits and public debate, the American people have not given up on marriage - but instead want to see it strengthened and preserved for future generations," concluded Perkins.
