Homosexuality in the Media
A recent Gallup poll indicated that 35% of Americans think that there are more homosexuals than Catholics in the US. Fact is 2% of citizens identify as homosexuals (6 million people) as compared to 25% identifying as Catholics (70 million).
So why do 1/3 of the US people think there are that many gays? Answer is simple - promotion of the gay lifestyle by the media.
Case in point: a new film released this week stars Christopher Plummer as a 75-year old widower who "comes out of the closet".

Thrilling, can't wait to see the old geezer.
Note from my husband (who should be blogging himself)- see the similarity here between people thinking there are that many gays in the population and everyone thinking that all priests are guilty of sexual abuse? In both cases, the media misleads the public by painting the picture they want.
