Are You Against Gay Marriage?

I received this email today. It's worth the time, I think. Click the title bar to participate in the protest.

This is an urgent call for you to join our formal protest to ABC News of a blatant attempt to distort what Americans believe about a key social issue of our time -- gay "marriage."
The new anchor of ABC's World News Tonight -- Charles Gibson -- didn't waste any time recently in showing his bias in favor of same-sex "marriage."

Gibson's bias was painfully obvious. Even as his own network's poll revealed overwhelming public opposition to same-sex marriage, Gibson reported: "Americans are fairly evenly split on this issue."

The ABC News poll found that Americans say: "Same-sex marriage should be illegal," by a 58 to 36-percent margin.

And Gibson calls that an even split!

Join our protest. Click here and demand that ABC News retract Gibson's lie and tell the truth about what America really thinks.

This is a case of liberal media bias crossing the line from "spin" to outright falsehood. It smacks of the totalitarian Big Lie technique -- repeat a lie often enough and people will start believing it.


During the same broadcast, an ABC reporter clearly stated that "forty-five of fifty states have passed either constitutional amendments or laws banning same-sex marriage."

Forty-five out of fifty is no "even split," but even that overwhelming statistic didn't stop Gibson.

He repeated the Big Lie twice more!

Interviewing his ABC colleague George Stephanopoulos, Gibson asked: "Why does the White House think this is a political winner for the President if indeed we're split?"

Gibson then repeated what even Stephanopoulos -- formerly Bill Clinton's White House spin-meister - had to admit was nothing but the Democratic party's spin on the issue. Gibson inquired, "why, if the votes are not there for this constitutional amendment, does the Senate spend three days on this issue when there are a lot of issues that perhaps they could do something about it?"

Such flagrant liberal media bias directly attacking the foundational institution of our civilization -- marriage -- must be challenged.

Click here to demand that ABC News correct the record and retract Gibson's Big Lie.

Eternal vigilance, Thomas Jefferson said, is the price of our liberties.

And Edmund Burke reminded us that "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

If we do nothing now to immediately confront ABC on this issue, the evil of gay "marriage" will be that much closer to eventual triumph.

We've made it easy for you to help. Click here to join our formal protest to ABC News.

And we all have friends, family members and colleagues who feel the same way we do about so-called "same-sex marriage" and the LIES the liberal media keep telling about the American people's support for it. I'm making sure every one of my contacts who agrees with me receives this e-mail so they can protest to ABC News, too, and I hope you will do the same. Please FORWARD this e-mail to at least four of your like-minded contacts NOW.

And then click here to immediately add your name to our protest to ABC News.
