Successful Propaganda

Posted on | May 20, 2011 | 23 Comments

Gallup reports that, for the first time ever, a majority of poll respondents favor same-sex marriage. Note the large and rapid change in opinion:

A mere 15 years ago, Americans opposed same-sex marriage by more than a 2-to-1 margin, 68% to 27%, whereas now the number is 53%-45% in support of same-sex marriage.

“The fantastical project of yesterday, which was mentioned only to be ridiculed, is today the audacious reform, and will be tomorrow the accomplished fact.”
– R.L. Dabney, 1897

The propaganda campaign which produced this revolution in public opinion will not abate or slacken. And we might suppose that, in a few more years, it will be deemed socially unacceptable — if not indeed a “hate crime” — to criticize homosexual behavior.
