Study after study by various institutions had told us LGBTs (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders) account for at most 3% of the U.S. population.
As recently as the 2010 U.S. census, less than one percent (0.773%) of U.S. households were same-sex households. (Los Angeles Times)
But that percentage is increasing as the Left relentlessly advance their civilization-destroying agenda.
Gallup Poll found that between 2012 and 2020, the percentage of Americans identifying themselves as LGBT steadily increased — from 3.5% in 2012 to 5.6% by 2020.
But that is nothing when it comes to America’s youth.
A new study, New Insights into the Generation of Growing Influence: Millennials In America, by George Barna, who leads research at Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center, found that some 30% of millennials, including nearly 40% of adults 18-24, identify as “LGBTQ” — three times the proportion identified among older U.S. adults.
How can this be?
How can our sexual identity and preference be so malleable?
The study also confirms other survey data of the deChristianization of America’s young. While 65% of millennials still identify as Christian, only 50% of millennials see Christianity as at least “a little positive.”
The Barna report describes U.S. millennials as a generation that is troubled and searching for answers to their problems, while “disengaged from spiritual teaching and practice, resulting in a paucity of knowledge, understanding, experience, and growth in this realm.” Barna said:
“The resultant spiritual illiteracy virtually resigns them to a superficial worldview in which they grasp at ideas and practices that provide immediate comfort rather than lasting truth and peace. The moral chaos that characterizes the generation can likewise be traced to a dearth of coherent and pragmatic religious instruction abetted by the absence of mature moral reflection.
The widespread confusion among young adults regarding aspects of their identity — spiritual, sexual, and also related to their sense of purpose in life — are a direct outgrowth of that spiritual wisdom vacuum. It seems that often young adults fill the void by creating a self-image that is built upon self-centeredness, self-reliance, and independence. That may be perceived as arrogance, but as much as anything it may also be a defense mechanism covering up their personal deficits with which they wrestle.
Your worldview is the foundation of your decision-making. Every choice you make emerges from your worldview, which serves as the filter through which you experience, observe, imagine, interpret, and respond to reality. And every one of the thousands of choices you make every day have consequences. That means worldview is at the heart of everything we are considering in relation to the well-being and development of the young adult generation.
Given the centrality of worldview to the human experience, there can be no improvements to the life millennials lead without addressing the fundamental role of worldview. And because worldview is developed and carried out in the competitive marketplace of beliefs and behaviors, think about the pervasive consequences for millennials of rejecting the biblical worldview in favor of other, more popular alternatives.”
