More Republicans Favoring "Gay" Marriage

The disturbing news is that public opinion in America is shifting in favor of same-sex marriage. The change that has taken place in America regarding this topic is truly staggering.   In 1996, Gallup found that 70 percent of Americans opposed it.   But a recent poll revealed that now 54% of Americans are in favor of same-sex marriage.

Many Republicans now favor “gay” marriage.  The Republicans’ problem is young voters.  70 percent of those under age 35 favor legalizing same-sex unions.  Many Republicans are no longer considered morally conservative, although they define themselves as fiscal conservatives.

The State acceptance of same sex marriage began in the Netherlands in 2001 and is now spreading around the world.   Same-sex marriage is now legally recognized in Argentina, Portugal, Canada, Belgium, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, South Africa and Sweden.  In America same-sex marriages are not recognized nationally, though same-sex couples can marry in six states and one district. 

According to exit polls in the last three presidential elections gays and lesbians made up just 3 percent of the electorate.  Yet Republican office holders are softening their stance on homosexual behavior for fear of losing votes—particularly young voters.  Many young voters have money and liberal views, although they call themselves Republicans.  Also, many Republicans running for office are courting Independents, the majority of whom favor gay marriage.

The hard truth is most who seek public office are quick to sell out on goodness if it will help them get elected to office.  God looks at so many of our national leaders and sees weak, selfish people, who care not at all for His laws. “I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one– Ezekiel 22:30.

Our national leaders should be crying out against our National Sins, and those who commit them.  Instead so many who seek public office embrace vile and destructive behavior.  There is no fear of God in the Land.
