We are pounded over and over again in the media and by gay activists with the idea that same-sex marriage is “inevitable,” if only those who hold to the time-tested definition of marriage as between one man and one woman would just step out of the way of “history.”

Here’s evidence of the bias in much of the polling numbers, which all along have been surprising, given that citizens in 31 states voted for keeping marriage as one man, one woman.  We would all do well to remember this every time you read about being “on the wrong side of history” or that marriage re-definition is “inevitable”!

“Here is what the Rice study’s authors say they discovered: First, they found less support for same-sex marriage than polls like Gallup and CNN tend to find. In fact, in 2012, 53 percent of those surveyed agreed that the only legal marriage should be between a man and a woman, while 13 percent sat on the fence, and 33 percent disagreed with the statement.”
