C4M – Ten Reasons – Number Eight
We’re getting near the end! Here’s reason number eight from the “Ten Myths” leaflet.
The public supports it
Seven in ten people want to keepÂ marriage as it is. Other polling whichÂ purports to show public support for gayÂ marriage fails to tell respondents thatÂ equal rights are already available throughÂ civil partnerships. When people are toldÂ this crucial fact, most people say keepÂ marriage as it is. MPs say their postbagsÂ have been dominated by public oppositionÂ to redefining marriage. Ordinary peopleÂ want the Government to concentrateÂ on reviving the economy and providingÂ better public services, not meddling withÂ marriage.
Hmmmm. Which surveys?
