Has the LGBT movement overplayed its hand?

Desmond (10-year-old drag queen kid)Young Americans are showing that they should not be written off as "lost" to the culture war.

A new Harris poll finds Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 are becoming less and less enamored with the LGBT lifestyle each year. 45 percent of young people considered themselves "allies" of the LGBT movement last year -- down from 53 percent in 2017 and 63 percent in 2016.

Meanwhile, 36 percent of millennials are not comfortable when they learn a family member is homosexual (up from 29 percent a year ago).

According to the American Family Association (AFA), that may be due to their "observing the abnormalities associated with homosexuality up close."

"This study is actually refreshing for a change, and it's showing that really the homosexual agenda and the sexual deviancy advocates have overplayed their hand," says AFA Vice President Walker Wildmon. "They've been pushing this sexual deviancy so much that your average person, even though not religious or Christian, they're getting tired of it; they're getting tired of being told that homosexuals and transgenders have special rights beyond what the Constitution provides."

OneNewsNow reported this week that Oregon has become the fifth state to require that pro-LGBT lesson be taught in schools.

Meanwhile, parents in California have taken a stand against similar lessons being taught in their state by keeping their children home to protest lessons. A second-grade lesson informs students that NASA astronaut Sally Ride is a lesbian. 

In an Action Alert on the Harris poll findings, American Family Association points out that 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 two years ago.

"We need to take this and use it as a winnable war moment, proving that the propaganda from the liberals … eventually has its stopping point," says Wildmon. "So we have to continue as Christians and conservatives … to promote sexual normalcy and traditional marriage as the building block of society."
