Media Admit Propaganda Overstating Gay Population

For decades, the liberal media have drowned out the truth espoused by knowledgeable Christians who demonstrate that the fraction of the American population claiming to be homosexual is tiny.

Will suppression of the truth continue?

-- From "Americans Have No Idea How Few Gay People There Are" by Garance Franke-Ruta, The Atlantic 5/31/12

Surveys show a shockingly high fraction think a quarter of the country is gay or lesbian, when the reality is that it's probably less than 2 percent.

Contemporary research in a less homophobic environment has counterintuitively resulted in lower estimates rather than higher ones.

In surveys conducted in 2002 and 2011, pollsters at Gallup found that members of the American public massively overestimated how many people are gay or lesbian. In 2002, a quarter of those surveyed guessed upwards of a quarter of Americans were gay or lesbian (or "homosexual," the third option given). By 2011, that misperception had only grown, with more than a third of those surveyed now guessing that more than 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian. Women and young adults were most likely to provide high estimates, approximating that 30 percent of the population is gay. Overall, "U.S. adults, on average, estimate that 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian," Gallup found. Only 4 percent of all those surveyed in 2011 and about 8 percent of those surveyed in 2002 correctly guessed that fewer than 5 percent of Americans identify as gay or lesbian.

These numbers are significant because identity -- and not behavior -- is the central determinant of whether or not someone will seek a same-sex marriage.
