Gay Marriage Winning in Polls & More

Last week we reported that the Gallop Poll tracking
gay marriage showed that 53% of Americans believe
same-gender marriage should be recognized by the law
as valid with the same rights as traditional marriages.
Now another blow for the homophobes is that Jim Daly,
President & CEO of Focus on the Family, which funds
attacks against marriage equality across the country
admits in a new interview that his side has “probably
lost” on the issue of gay marriage. Good As You reports
that Daly in an interview for the June 4 issue of World
Magazine attributes the losing battle to changing attitudes
among young people. “We're losing on that one, especially
among the 20 & 30 somethings: 65 to 70 percent of them
favor same-gender marriage,” says Daly in the interview.
“I don't know if that's going to change with a little more
age -demographers would say probably not. We've probably
lost that.” Of course they’re still joining with the National
Organization for Marriage to fund anti-gay campaigns &
constitutional amendments such as the most recent effort
to ban marriage equality in Minnesota in 2012. But the shift
is definitely changing to support marriage equality.

Focus on the Family finally got something right—the American people are rejecting their antigay toxic rhetoric and punitive politics, and are siding with loving and committed couples seeking the freedom to marry. With six national polls now confirming that a majority of Americans support the freedom to marry, it’s time for Focus on the Family and other anti-gay industry activists to move on and, ideally, redirect their resources toward tackling the real problems gay and non-gay Americans could be confronting together in these tough economic times.
