So Just How Many ‘Same-Sex’ Couples Are There in America?

One would think that with all of the hullabaloo from the left to change the time-honored meaning of marriage, that a significant number of people must be being somehow affected by keeping the definition the same as it’s been for thousands of years — between one man and one woman.

Not so much.

The dirty little secret, as respected polling firm Gallup just revealed, is that less than 1% (8/10’s of 1% to be precise) of American adults are involved in a homosexual relationship, including 0.5% who are in a “same-sex domestic partnership,” and another 0.3% of adults in the U.S. are “married to a same-sex spouse.”

Less than one person in a hundred. In statistics, that tiny fraction of a percentage can frequently be referred to as “rounding errors.”

My father had a saying, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease,” and it has never been truer than in the case of changing the meaning of marriage to include homosexuals, and in the future, who knows what else?

But the 0.8% is only those in a relationship, you say. The number of overall gays must be much higher if you include those not in any kind of committed relationship, right?

Not really. According to U.S. Government data last year, only 1.6% of American adults are homosexual, not the 10% or more that the media and Hollywood would have you believe.

Meanwhile, the 99.2% of society not in a homosexual relationships are getting their views, traditions, including First Amendment rights to freedom of religion, trampled upon by an extreme, but militant minority.

The gaystapo bullies trying to change the meaning of marriage are an insignificant number of extremely vile leftists, but they are loud and will use any tactic necessary to inflict their unnatural views of morality on the rest of society.
