AFTAH president on the power of a 'tiny minority'

According to a new study, homosexual activists' tactics seem to be working, and one conservative credits that fact in part to the Democratic Party.

A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that 2.3 percent of the population self-identifies as homosexual, lesbian or bisexual –- a number that Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) notes is indeed a "tiny minority."

The Washington Post reports that the National Health Interview Survey, the government's premier tool for annually assessing Americans' health and behaviors, shows that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as "gay" or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual.

LaBarbera, Peter"Look at this amazing revolution they've created in our society to the point where they're now dominating in media, academia [and] the business world," he points out. "This tiny minority is dominating so many areas of culture."

LaBarbera attributes part of that power to the tactic of intimidation, "the well-organized campaigns against anybody who speaks out against sodomy and homosexuality and also liberalism. The Democratic Party has given over totally now to supporting homosexuality."

Activists have also sold the message that it is a civil rights issue.

"The number confirms -- 2.3 percent. This is a sexual aberration," the AFTAH president insists. "This is sexual and gender confusion. This is not analogous to the noble black civil rights movement, not in any way."

He concludes that activists have "basically hoodwinked the culture into treating this as a civil rights movement" and adds that skin color cannot be changed, but sexual orientation can.

The federal health interview survey was begun in 1957 and comprises a wide range of questions on topics, including medical care, vaccinations and tobacco use. The Washington Post explains that the data, collected for the CDC by the Census Bureau, is highly regarded because of its large sample size — 33,557 adults between the ages of 18 and 64 for the most recent survey — and because of its methods, which include face-to-face interviews and some follow-up telephone queries.
