How Many Homosexuals In Canada?

Statistics Canada performed its first-ever survey that looked at sexual orientation. Interestingly (and not-too surprisingly to most Christians) the percentage of people who identify themselves as homosexual was far lower than the gay community would have us believe. While they claim that between 5 and 10 percent of the population is homosexual, this survey found a mere 1 percent of people identified themselves as gay. A further 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual (which in my books is no different from homosexual). Obviously there is a vast difference between the truth and what the gay community wants us to believe.

Gay activists are claiming, of course, that the survey was flawed. Apparently rather than asking “are you homosexual” they should have asked “are your sexual partners the same sex or the opposite sex.”

There is a great, if somewhat shocking quote, by a Professor of sociology:

When a number is attached to a gay community, ideological battles emerge, said Michael Botnick, a lecturer on sociology at the University of British Columbia.

“Clearly, from a right-wing perspective, they’d like to see the numbers lower,” he said. “From the more libertarian perspective, they’d like to see the numbers more accurate, or higher. So nobody’s going to be satisfied.”

Notice how he has already judged the results to be inaccurate, saying that “the numbers [should be] more accurate, or higher.”

You can read an article about the survey results in the Globe and Mail.

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God. The Bible’s life, its voice, its feet, and hands are the life, voice, feet, and hands of God extended toward his people. For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
