From this week’s “Wisconsin Family Connection,” Wisconsin Family Council’s radio commentary!
Recent polls claim that more and more Americans—including Wisconsinites—believe same-sex civil unions or domestic partnerships are just fine and should basically be treated like marriages. And, of course, those promoting acceptance and normalization for their non-traditional relationships are touting these polls as being the barometer of what is right.
Let’s make this very clear: Truth is not subject to nor is Truth swayed by public opinion polls. God’s Truth stands independent of all of man’s machinations. Public opinion may or may not reflect accurately where a group of people is on a certain issue, but that by no means makes public opinion right—or good for the public, for that matter. The Word of God is the arbiter of right and wrong, especially on issues such as marriage.
It’s hardly surprising that the polls show that people are saying individuals in same-sex relationships should be treated just as if they are married. The media has done a fabulous job of beating that drum at every opportunity. The schools have opened their doors to groups such as GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network and others who want to promote and normalize homosexuality from kindergarten up.
