Ex-gays and other anti-gays like to portray all gays and lesbians as a living some “homosexual lifestyle”. Naturally, this lifestyle has every negative attribute that can be imagined.
Gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered persons are all anti-Christian, anti-American, anti-defense socialists in favor of overthrowing society and especially the family. They hate all that is good and pure. And, of course, they always vote Democrat.
And they also make up only 1% of the population.
The CNN exit polling from Tuesday’s election suggests otherwise.
Although little information about gay voters is provided, we do find that gay, lesbian, or bisexual voters made up about 3% of the overall voters (down from about 4% in 2004). And we find that about 24% voted for a Republican as their delegate to the House of Representatives.
Perhaps these 24% all live in the Northeast where Republicans tend to vote in favor of equality. Or perhaps they live in districts in the midwest or south where the Democrat they were running against was no better than the Republican. Or it may be that they felt individual issues – the war in Iraq, economic positions, immigration, or even the character of the Republican or Democrat candidate – outweighed a candidate’s position on gay issues.
But whatever their reasoning, this exit polling clearly shows that “the homosexual lifestyle” is nothing more than a myth used to justify bigoted behaviors on the part of anti-gay activists.
