    I'm not shooting the messenger. As I stated, I take no issue with the polling results. I do, however, take issue with the fact that these results were cited by a biased source and that you used that as a source for this thread. I also take issue with your hypocrisy in knowing that you would most likely be criticizing someone on the left for doing this exact thing.

    Put yourself in my shoes...would you consider any information from say...MoveOn.org, or Huffington Post regarding this issue?
    I hate Moveon.org but if they cited a poll published by Gallup, Rasmussen or any of the other nonbiased polling organizations I would believe it.....

    You may believe the polling results (though, who really knows after you flip flopped on which polling organizations you considered biased throughout the election cycle). But you would criticize the poster for using a biased article as a source.

    Unfortunately for you, one single poll showing a slight shift of 2% is hardly proof of your position.

    You have to look at a number of factors including polling, changing demographics, etc.
    Over the last decade there has been a huge shift nationwide in views regarding gay marriage.

    I know that there will be a change in my lifetime. I used to think it would take longer, but am now convinced that it will even happen within your lifetime.



    People in the United States, despite our stubborness, ultimately understand that it is wrong to discriminate. More people are becoming ashamed of their attitudes against gay marriage, just as we grew to become ashamed of our attitudes against inter-racial marriage or believing that women and ethnic minorities were somehow inferior to white males. This same shift is occurring towards the view that gay relationships are somehow inferior to heterosexual ones.
    Young people in this country overwhelmingly are accepting of gays in general, gay marriage in specifics. The shift is already occurring in older voters, add these younger voters into the mix as they grow to voting age and you begin to see how you can only hold your finger in the dam so long, Navy before the cracks overcome your wall.

    ...But keep holding that finger in there Navy....the attitudes of your generation are almost always the last to change.
    Dream on DD, your side is losing and you know it..........

    There was more then one poll DD and I am not the one grasping for straws......Unlike you I believe if any state votes to allow gay marriage I would go along with it..........That has yet to happen in any state and never will........

    If the Baptist organization did the poll you might have a point but they didn't......Its like saying I won't accept the results of a poll that Gallup did because CNN (the Communist News Network) published it...Nonsense.....

    And the poll numbers are the same..........It does not make a difference who cited the poll, what counts is who did the poll!!!!!

    No, it isn't nonsense. Why didn't you make your thread using an unbiased source? Did you have trouble finding a reputable news organization with a similar story citing the same results? If it's such an unbiased story then you should have no trouble finding something reputable.
