[BTW, Need I tell you how very much I hate sharing my name with such a loathsome propaganda machine?! I hate it!]
Paul Ambos, a participant on the Bishops/Deputies listserv, alerted us that Fox News posted a poll last week about the California Supreme Court’s decision. The Fox poll asked the question,
"Did Judge Make Right Call In Gay Marriage Case?”
and the Fox survey allowed these responses:
- Yes -- Prop. 8 violates the Constitution.
- No -- Marriage is an institution between a man and a woman. I don't care what the judge thinks about the Constitution.
- I'm not sure but shouldn't the voters views count for something?
- Other (leave a comment).
Anyway … I held my nose and went to register my opinion on the Fox site, expecting to me as much a minority there as I am when I vote in my local elections. Imagine my surprise! 72% of respondents are agreeing that Prop8 violates the Constitution. Only 24% are going for the “Damn the Constitution! I hate queers!” option.
I am astonished.
So … If you haven’t already done so, hold your nose and register your opinion at the Fox News site. You don’t have to register, reveal your e-address, or anything. You can just click and vote. Frankly, I am utterly astonished that they haven’t pulled this poll.
