Crosstalk: May 30, 2018
Crosstalk has been warning about indoctrination of youth by the LGBT agenda for a long time. Efforts have been made to indoctrinate the Boy Scouts, 4-H, the YMCA and schools across America.
These youth become adults and many already have been positioned to accept that which they have been immersed into and conditioned to believe for so long. Then, to the delight of many within the movement, they indicate that there's a growing acceptance to such things as same-sex marriage and gay pride.
Peter LaBarbera joined Jim to discuss this issue. Peter's the founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.
This edition of Crosstalk began with news from Jim that a recent Gallop poll indicates that the percentage of American adults identifying as LGBT has increased to 4.5%. That's up from 4.1% in 2016. It was 3.5% in 2012. The report noted that the expansion in the number is driven primarily by millennials. Those who identify as LGBT expanded from 7.3% in 2016 to 8.1% in 2017.
Peter responded by saying that indoctrination and propaganda works. Even though he doesn't trust the 8.1% figure, he noted that morality has been redefined and now that homosexuality has become fashionable, especially in the eyes of the media, more kids are getting involved.
Some other statistics worth noting show that 2 in 3 Americans support same-sex marriage, 40 percentage points up from just 27% who supported it in 1996.
The core of this program involved Jim having Peter comment on some markers that vindicate the idea that the above information is accurate and how these markers steer youth toward LBGT views. Some examples included:
–Actor Sir Ian McKellen, who played 'Gandalf' in the 'Lord of the Rings' series, is openly homosexual. In a recent interview about his life he said that ,'Half of Hollywood is gay.'
–Greendale High School in Greendale, Wisconsin, where the high school newspaper communicated how the school's diversity council put together a theme for each day in order to celebrate the diversity in the school and around the world. Last Tuesday was LGBT Awareness Day. Comments by the principal were read by Jim showing how he was promoting the LGBT philosophy.
–A federal court ruled that a Virginia high school should have allowed a gender-confused former student to use the restrooms designated for the opposite sex. (A female who identified as male.) The school originally attempted to accommodate the request through allowing use of a private restroom but the student demanded the same restroom used by male students. The court sided with the student.
–Hawaii is banning the counseling of youth by conversion therapy.
–At a Boy Scout jamboree that's coming up in West Virginia in August, they want condoms to be available.
