Christian majority ignored in gay marriage controversy

The downside of the First Amendment: It is estimated 2 percent of the population in the United States is gay. Surprised?

Of that total, it is estimated about 35 percent are married or desire to marry, or less than 1 percent of our total population. It is estimated that about 70 percent of the population in our country professes to be Christian.

Despite these undeniable facts, our media today insists on pushing a narrative for a tiny fringe group over 70 percent of the people. Because the media's pen is so much mightier than the sword, people who would normally stand against a belief or principle are now backing down and kowtowing.

For example, take Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Both have spoken on numerous occasions that they believed marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Both now have completely reversed and strongly support gay marriage.

Of course these two aren't exactly pillars of honesty and high ethical standards and have proven on many occasions to change their position whenever the political wind blows.

The liberal media has made it their business to champion minorities and their causes. Why? Because it makes a story and hopefully provokes a response.

Writing stories about the majority Christians and their long-held beliefs is just boring, not to mention liberals hate religion.

Unfortunately, middle America gets a totally slanted and skewed view of what is really believed by a vast majority of Americans. As a result, time-honored traditions are gradually eroded, weakening our society further.
