Abstract:

This paper investigates the issue of same-sex marriage. We are specifically interested in how political elites use values to frame the issue, the extent to which the print media utilize these frames, and the impact on individuals in terms of their opinions about same-sex marriage. First we provide a brief historical review of the issue. Then we rely on three distinct data sets: Content analysis of interest group websites and content analysis of newspaper coverage, combined with analysis of national-level survey data. We find that political elites on the opposing sides of the same-sex marriage issue use frames of equality (pro-same-sex marriage) and traditional moral values (anti-same-sex marriage); that newspapers utilize these same frames in their coverage on the topic (with slightly more usage of the traditional moral values frame); and that the single best predictor of attitudes on the topic of same-sex marriage is whether or not the respondent attaches the value of morality or equality to the issue.
