Far from being an unstoppable force, it seems that homosexual tyranny has led to a noticeable backlash. This was acknowledged by GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), which is an American homosexual advocacy group promoting homosexuality in the media. In February 2018, it issued a press release which reported a Harris poll (this polling company has tracked public opinion since 1963), which found that acceptance of the LBGT agenda in the US had declined by 8%.
The reason for this decline is due to homosexual activists overplaying their hand with their bullying tactics. This has led to the destruction of the livelihoods of harmless bakers, florists and others, who, for religious reasons, do not agree with same-sex marriage or that girls should be forced to undress in front of boys who claim to be transgendered. Further, the public has become aware that new “rights” awarded homosexuals, diminishes their own right to freedom of religion, opinion and speech. These factors have contributed to this backlash.
For example, in 2019, GLAAD admitted an even further decline in LGBTQ acceptance among Americans aged 18-34. Support on every LGBTQ demand has dropped significantly in this age group. According to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report, the number of Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 who are “comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people” dropped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018, which is already a decrease from 65% in 2016.
Another study released in March 2019, by the Public Religion Research Institute which surveys American attitudes on LGBT issues, indicated that, between 2015- 2018, support for protecting LGBT individuals from discrimination fell by 10% among Republicans under the age of 30. This was one of the largest and most significant decreases in attitudes towards the LGBT agenda. It appears that the intolerance of homosexual activists to any opposition has offended the American public – but not the Democratic Party. The LGBT influence is rising in dominance in that party. For example, a Democratic presidential debate for the 2020 election will be hosted by the homosexual organization, the Human Rights Campaign, and that debate will be devoted exclusively to the Democratic pro-LGBT policy. The Democratic Party’s homosexual agenda, together with its strong pro-abortion advocacy, including abortion until birth, indicates that the Democratic Party is wildly out of touch with the voters.
If the LGBT community wants to have credibility, it must be open to respectful debate and tolerance for the views of others. To do otherwise is to allow totalitarianism, which is the antithesis of democracy. The US Democratic Party should be aware of this.
It is noted that this backlash against the LGBTQ agenda exists not only in North America, but also in the UK. The 2019 British Social Attitude Survey found that the acceptance of homosexual activity in the UK declined for the first time since 1987 when the AIDS crisis arose.
This backlash hopefully will lead to a restoration of sanity on the homosexual issue, ie that there be the same rights for everyone but not the superior rights which activists are constantly demanding.
