Is Same-Sex Marriage Inevitable?

If you listen to news reports, you will find that the general conclusion is that everybody is embracing same-sex marriage. There are three main reasons for this misinformation.

First, the general population is under the impression that nearly 25 percent of Americans are homosexual. In reality, the percentage of homosexuals is less than two percent:

“Contrary to popular belief, just 1.6 percent of American adults identify as homosexual, compared to 96.6 percent who say they are heterosexual, according to a large-scale, first-of-its-kind government survey recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”

Second, the media and entertainment industries portray same-sex sexuality in the most positive light without ever describing what homosexuality is. The euphemism “gay” is used to cover up the true nature of same-sex sexuality.

Third, most of the changes in the law regarding same-sexuality are coming from the courts, unelected judges who have overruled state legislatures and general elections where a majority of people have voted not to support same-sex marriage.

Not all judges have succumbed to the legal reasoning of these judges. Circuit Court Judge Russell E. Simmons Jr., of Kingston, Tennessee, ruled that Tennessee’s marriage protection amendment does not violate the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Of course it doesn’t. “[A] panel on the 6th Circuit, which covers Tennessee, seemed poised to rule against gay marriage. If they do so, their decision would all but force the Supreme Court to confront the issue head-on.”
