    Looks like a solid majority still says no to recognizing the idea of homosexual marriage in spite of the Supreme Court ruling.

    CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll. June 27-29, 2003. N=1,003 adults nationwide. MoE ± 3.

    "Do you think marriages between homosexuals should or should not be recognized by the law as valid, with the same rights as traditional marriages?"

    Should Be Valid 39%

    Should Not Be 55%

    No Opinion 6%

    Here we must isolate the laws of the land and the biblical premise that marriage is man and woman united before God in holy matrimony.

    In the quest to give equal rights to all citizens, the lawmakers have written inclusive laws. This is so in Canada, and the judges had no choice but to rule accordingly. Weak politicians, who set the laws, have failed to see beyond their noses, and are now to weak to correct their errors. They must allow homosexual unions. The debate remains as to whether it should be called marriage.

    I am not in favour of marriage between opposite mates, but then, I will only marry two believers in fellowship with the Lord and the local church.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    This is not good news, the percentages were much higher in the not so distant past. I would not be pleased if I were to learn that my wife was 55% sure she wouldn't go out on me. I am very saddened by these numbers.

    I would think you would be more sad if the number was 25% instead of 55%. ;)

    No wonder conservative Christians don't do well in politics. Even when they are winning, they feel like they are losing.

    I would be more sad. Conservative Christians don't do well in politics because in politics you must compromise and lie to get elected to prominate positions.

    There's no reason to think that Christians can't be - or aren't - involved in politics. Look at Josh Ashcroft and George Bush. (Although I'm not much of a fan of Ashcroft :rolleyes: )

    I agree with Artimaeus--society is hardly "winning" when such a bare majority doesn't see the importance of maintaining the strength of such a vital cornerstone of that very society. The fact alone that the trend is running toward opposing heterosexual marriage only is frightening. When it goes to 49% I won't be looking back to the "good old days" of 55%, that's for sure.

    I agree that 39% pro-homo is too high of a figure to feel comfortable with, but the younger folks are indeed worshipping at the altar of the entertainment world, which fervently promotes that lifestyle, and I think that it is there that Christians are losing so much ground.

    Offering "Christianized" Satanic entertainment is no way to win battles in the youth arena either.
