In survey after survey and poll after poll, the results always show the younger generation of Americans is much more accepting of LGBT issues, such as marriage equality, than their elders.
And so we know that in time those on the wrong side of history will also be on the wrong side of the ground. (As in buried.)
A majority of Americans now support marriage equality for same-sex couples, according to a new poll released by CBS and the Washington Post. Some 53 percent of respondents said they support allowing same-sex couples to marry, up from 36 percent just five years ago.
Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, responded to the findings by questioning the wording of the questions in the poll.
“The only poll that counts is a free and fair vote on the part of the people,” Brown told the Post. “We’ve seen these biased polls time and time again — right before votes in which same-sex marriage is rejected. It’s absurd. The people of this country have not changed their opinion about marriage.”
Advocates for same-sex marriage disagreed.
