Homosexual Advocacy Groups Admitted Back In 2003 That The 10% Figure Was A Lie; Only 2.1% Of Americans Are Actually Queer


For years, it's been presented as axiomatic that 10% of Americans are gay. This number became almost as immutable and inerrant as the "Six Million" number promoted by the Holocaust lobby.

But pro-family advocates such as the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) have always maintained that this 10% figure was exaggerated. TVC suggests a more realistic figure of 2.1%, and exposes a number of urban legends about homosexuality HERE.

However, it was on 2003 that the homosexual lobby blew the whistle on themselves. In a brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court case, Lawrence v. Texas, which overturned Texas' sodomy law, the nancy-boys admitted that their 10% number was exaggerated. This information was extracted and posted on the Free Republic website, as follows:

Homosexual Advocacy Groups Admit 10% Fallacy

By Ed Vitagliano July 30, 2003

(AgapePress) - For decades homosexual pressure groups have claimed that, since 10% of the population is homosexual, public officials should give credence to their political demands. Now it seems that when they absolutely have to tell the truth, activists admit the 10% figure is a myth.

The startling admission was made by a coalition of 31 homosexual advocacy groups, including the Human Rights Campaign, National Gay & Lesbian Task Force, and the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. In their brief filed in a recent U.S. Supreme Court case, Lawrence v. Texas, which dealt with that state's sodomy statute, the coalition said that only "2.8% of the male, and 1.4% of the female, population identify themselves as gay, lesbian, or bisexual."

"That 2.1% figure [of the total population] even includes bisexuals, which makes the percentage of people claiming to be exclusively homosexual even lower," said American Family Association president Tim Wildmon.

The origin of the 10% myth is not difficult to uncover. In 1948, sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, a professor at Indiana University, began publishing his material about human sexuality in the U.S., work which would lead to the sexual revolution. Kinsey was the first to say that 10% of the U.S. population was homosexual.

However, in her groundbreaking 1998 book, Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences, Dr. Judith Reisman demolished Kinsey's research as being based on inept science and purposeful deception. Still, homosexuals continued to use the 10% figure in published materials and press interviews to bolster their demands.

Five years later, in 2008, it's possible that the percentage of gays could be higher, maybe as high as three percent. After all, the gay rights lobby has had five years of almost uninterrupted success, with their stooges in the courts imposing domestic partner benefit laws on various states, and elected officials like Salt Lake Mayor Ralph Becker pandering to them and openly paving the way for them. In addition, gays have been allowed increased access to our youth through the estimated 3,577 gay-straight clubs on our nation's high school campuses. Homosexual tolerance training, to include mandatory "Days of Silence", has been forced on our nation's middle and high school students in the name of "student safety". And opponents are increasingly demonized as "homophobes".

And increasingly, coercion is entering the equation. More jurisdictions are "protecting" gays under so-called Marxist-influenced "hate crime" laws. And the gay rights lobby is not stopping there; they now want transgendered freaks to be covered under hate laws as well. Read this essay outlining eleven reasons why we should fight hate crime laws from Truthtellers.org.

The gay rights lobby has come a long way since they fired the first shots in the Stonewall Rebellion back in 1969. At that time, we though all they wanted was for us to leave them alone. Were we ever wrong; they wanted more. Equality first, then preference. Unhindered access to our kids. In 2003, they briefly lifted the mask of respectability to show the predatory visage beneath; let's get educated, confident, and rip the mask completely off for all the people to see.
