Americans Resist Redefining Marriage

In contrast to New York’s new social legislation, a new national survey shows that 62 percent of Americans resist redefining marriage and agree that “marriage should be defined only as the union between one man and one woman.”

Public Opinion Strategies (POS) Survey Director Gene Ulm was not surprised. He says, “More than 63 million Americans in 31 state elections have voted on constitutional marriage amendments.” Ulm added that the survey results “mirror American behavior when faced with the decision to either affirm marriage in their state constitutions or leave it open to legal challenges or other attacks.”

KTLW programmer Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, warns that “Growing evidence…shows how parental rights will be disrupted by this, how freedom of speech will be lost, and how the freedom of religion is at stake in the advancement of this whole notion that we can redefine marriage.”
