New Harris poll: LGBTQ… has overplayed its hand.

They couldn’t leave it at marriage.

Society could have adjusted to that and we could have all lived happily ever after.

But oh no… they had to go after gender… had to argue for allowing people with penises into high school girls’ dressing rooms, to shower with them.  Had to threaten women’s athletics.  Had to push “drag queen story hours” on little children.

Now a new Harris Poll shows that Americans aged 18-34 are becoming less and less enamored with the LGBTQ perspective every year.

In 2016, 63 percent of millennials considered themselves "allies" of the LGBTQ movement. But that number fell to 53 percent in 2017, and plunged to 45 percent last year.

Adopting a pseudo-religious intolerance towards all differing opinions has led to a rise in discomfort amongst millennials, with 36 percent now saying they are not comfortable when they learn a family member is homosexual (up from 29 percent a year ago).

A startling 42 percent of millennial males are uncomfortable learning that their child has had a lesson on LGBT history at school or has a homosexual teacher. That's up from 27 percent a scant two years ago.

The poll was conducted by a pro-LGBTQ polling firm.  The CEO of Harris Polling was quoted as saying, "These numbers are very alarming." 

Of course, the real reason why the LGBTQ movement can never be satisfied is that it is all about the money.  Contentment, getting on with one’s life, does not raise money for the professional LGBTQ activists.  They don’t get paid that way.  They get paid by raising the alarm… by labeling their fellow human beings as “enemies… haters… who must be destroyed.”  They live off hate.  No hate… no dough.  They must have hate.

We have been warned about this before, in another context, by that good liberal, Mrs. Lillian Smith.  A Southern writer, she was a pioneer in the battle to end segregation. We recommend her book, The Winner Names the Age.  In it, you will find this passage she wrote when she accepted the Charles S. Johnson Award for her work:

“It is his millions of relationships that will give man his humanity… It is not our ideological rights that are important but the quality of our relationships with each other, with all men, with knowledge and art and God that count.

The civil rights movement has done a magnificent job but it is now faced with the ancient choice between good and evil, between love for all men and lust for a group’s power.” 

“Every group on earth that has put ideology before human relations has failed; always disaster and bitterness and bloodshed have come.  This movement, too, may fail.  If it does, it will be because it aroused in men more hate than love, more concern for their own group than for all people, more lust for power than compassion for human need.”

“We must avoid the trap of totalism which lures a man into thinking there is only one way, one answer, one option, and that others must be forced into this One Way, and forced into it Now.”
