It’s June, and Pride Month is here. Americans who quietly object to the celebration of Pride Month are tempted to feel isolated — or worse, despair at the thought that the America they grew up in is no more. If they look to corporate America, college campuses, the front office of their favorite professional sports team, social media, or most major institutions in this country, they aren’t likely to see their values represented. But a sneak peek at some polling recently commissioned by FRC Action should give fresh hope to those who simply want the freedom to live out their sincerely-held beliefs, their children protected from gender ideology, and corporations to remain neutral in the culture wars.


When asked if they would support legislation to protect people and organizations who support natural marriage from government discrimination, a total of 54% of Americans said yes — including 37% who “strongly support” (13% strongly oppose) such legislation. As an example, this kind of measure would protect Christians in the wedding industry (florists, bakers, photographers) from being forced to use their talents in celebration of a same-sex wedding.

Even more extraordinary is this finding: 61% of Americans don’t think the government should create special privileged classes based on an individual’s self-identified sexual orientation or gender identity — only 15% do.
