After six years of same-sex marriage in the UK and near-saturation in state and corporate propaganda about how normal same-sex families are, millions of Britons remain unconvinced.

The startling finding was made in a new YouGov poll commissioned by church same-sex marriage campaigner Jayne Ozanne. The survey showed that almost a quarter (24 per cent) of British adults are actively opposed to same-sex marriage. A further 16 per cent say they don’t know.

From the heavily biased messages that come frequently from government, business and the media you might have thought none but a tiny handful of holdouts were still harbouring reservations. But these figures represent the views of millions of people.

Even among the young, often assumed to be uniformly liberal in their views, 10 per cent of 18-24 year-olds say they think same-sex marriage is wrong and a further 16 per cent that they are unsure.

This is an encouragement for those of us who continue to stand for traditional marriage as the life-long union of one man and one woman, and who regard same-sex marriage as a mistake that continues to harm society and especially children.

It shows once more the resilience of unease about redefining such a foundational social institution. It is a welcome reminder that we at C4M are far from alone.
