When asked whether favorable portrayals of gay characters on shows like “Glee,” “Modern Family” and “The New Normal” had changed their views on gay “marriage,” twenty-seven percent of respondents—or over eighty percent of those whose views had changed—said that they were more in favor of gay “marriage.”
Says pollster John Penn, that’s due especially to the influx of young voters who grew up watching these shows.
“Views on gay marriage are totally defined by age,” says Penn. “Almost twice as many voters under 35 say these shows made them more in favor of gay marriage. . .”
Translation: The hearts and minds of Americans—especially our young people—are being changed when it comes to same-sex “marriage” and homosexual practice because of entertainment, not arguments.
