Gallup Poll: Fewer Americans in 2014 Believe The Born ‘Gay’ Myth

Barb Wire

Americans are split over the innate, immutability argument of sexual orientation, but according to a recent poll, released on Wednesday, 5% fewer people now believe that someone is born “gay” than did just a year ago. So much for the “inevitability,” “wrong side of history” mantras.

The conspicuous lack of scientific support for this myth may finally be factoring into the thinking of a growing number in our country. And perhaps the backlash against the relentless homofascist attack on freedom is beginning to take place as well.

Gallup’s annual Values and Beliefs poll, which was conducted from May 8-11, indicates that 37% of respondents think upbringing and environment influence whether people become “gay,” while 42% say people are born “gay.”

By contrast, 47% of Americans in the 2013 survey believed sexual orientation was fixed at birth. Apparently, the entire false premise of the so-called “marriage equality” movement is starting to crumble before our very eyes.

“Although this pattern appeared to be changing last year when the belief that people are born gay rose to an all-time high of 47% after a slight increase in 2012,” the Gallup analysis noted, “this year’s slight downtick in the ‘born with’ belief, halted the trend.” This poll demonstrates why it is very important for Christians and traditionalists to keep articulating the truth and countering the homosexual deceptions. We can win this debate if we don’t back down.

The Gallup poll also interestingly reports:

The scientific community does not agree on one unified viewpoint regarding the issue of a person’s sexual orientation. According to the American Psychological Association, ‘there is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay, or lesbian orientation.’

“Its English counterpart, the Royal College of Psychiatrists, has said sexual orientation is a combination of biological and environmental factors,” NewsMax also reported.

So, despite the constant media barrage, Hollywood’s deep pockets, academic propaganda and acquiescent politicians, the homosexuals activists have not succeeded in suppressing the truth.

Finally, some great news for the culture warriors.
