taken from paisleychick who took it from janisfan (for the benefit of non-bab5 friends):
    The American Family Association has decided to try and "prove a point" by having a poll on their website for folks to take about their opinion on gay marriage. They intend to present the results of this poll to the United States Congress in an attempt to instate a federal law against Gay Marriage.

    It's obvious that they think that this poll will come out in their favor, and that the vast majority of people will vote to keep marriage for traditional couples only.

    I ask you all to please visit


    and let your opinion be heard. It takes about 45 seconds, and it is SUCH an important topic. Whether you are gay or straight, conservative or liberal, your opinion matters, and you NEED to vote here.

    The only folks who were even made aware of it's existence were the people on the AFAs mailing list and the people who happened to wander across their website. They have absolutely every intention of presenting this poll in the form of a petition to congress against gay marriage. I wonder if they will still present it when the YAYs outweigh the NAYs?

    PLEASE let your voice be heard.
When I took the poll it was 59% opposed, 35% for full marriage, 6% for civil union. See the current results. Note that the webpage took 5 minutes to load for me - be patient!

Grr... I hate these things. What's the best way of getting through to congress the fact that these Internet "polls" aren't worth the paper they're written on? The optimist in me thinks they already know this.

FWIW, more credible polls show that most people are opposed to gay marriages. (It's a sad using USA Today as the more credible source...)

Not worth the coding effort that was put into them :~)

I guess you're right - but I would be amused if enough pro-gay-marriage people sign it to make that the preferred option. :~)
