Well, myth number 1. We're going to state the myth, the fiction in their terms and then we are going to systematically dismantle them as we proceed here this evening. Myth number 1. All of these are going to surprise you. Every single one of them. Myth number 1: homosexuality is common.
Homosexuality is common. That's myth number 1. It's an utter fabrication. It is not true.
If you only saw news reports or movies or only got fed by common media, you might think without anyone saying so that the number of homosexuals in society is approximating that of heterosexuals, after all, we are sure talking about it a lot more. Certainly the theme of a lot more movies and TV shows, not that I follow any of that, but it's just common and it's just so pervasively displayed and there are gay pride parades that walk through the streets and receive all kinds of favorable coverage.
You'd think, "Man, this must be a growing dynamic that is overtaking the world kind of like a bowl of yeast that just grows and grows and grows. Others think, I saw someone yesterday who quoted this statistic saying that, "Well, one person in 10 is a homosexual," and that was the common line for a long time. One out of 10 and it is insinuated to you that you start to look around with suspicion at the other 9 people around and wonder who fits the bill. It is all demonstrably false and I'm going to show you that right now. This isn't off some fringe Christian website.
Seven Biblical arguments against homosexuality (and why they’re rubbish)
These are government statistics that I'm about to quote to you, specifically the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just outside of Atlanta stated in their studies and their conclusions that That has nothing to do, this is in complete opposition to what is portrayed in the media around us. A Gallup poll released on April 24, just a month ago, 3 months ago, I should say, estimated that the total of adults living in the United States in a same-sex marriage or with a same-sex domestic partner, let me say that again so that you can follow it with me.
I know I'm going to be throwing a lot of numbers at you here so I want you to be able to stay up with me. A Gallup poll, perhaps arguably the most respected pollster in America, this year in the wave of homosexual marriage going on, estimated that the total adults living in the United States in a same-sex marriage or with a same-sex domestic partner was 0. In other words, Those numbers are shocking. It's not just one study that says this.

You can cross-reference it. Government statistics. The same government that has supported and advocated this. Their own statistics contradict the narrative that is trying to be portrayed. Estimates for homosexuality from the late s were similar. I won't go into quoting those studies but it is not an overstatement to say that our media creates an image that homosexuality is pervasive. It's not. Now, admittedly, it may be more common in Hollywood circles.
It may be more common in liberal political circles but that says nothing about how common it is in the broader population overall. The US government and Gallup contradict the illusion. Friends, the idea that homosexuality is common is a myth. It's a fiction. That's not the only myth that we are told.
Myth number 2: we are told that homosexual love is like heterosexual love and that was one of the common quotes in the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision, "Love is love. You love a woman, I love a man. It's all love. It's a despicable fiction. The media portrays homosexuality as being comparable to the relational stability of heterosexuals. Hold onto your hats with what I'm about to describe to you because you're used to, just like I am, news agencies that predictably tell stories about older homosexuals who shared a long relationship together, implying that all homosexual relationships are of like kind and so they stand outside the courtroom hand-in-hand and portray an image as if that symbol of one or 2 couples is representative of the entire whole.
It's absolutely false and despicably false, I might add. Listen to these statistics found in multiple sources. Homosexuals average 8 different sexual partners annually. Give that a moment to sink in, huh? It's shocking. Now, let's be honest, it's not like heterosexuals have a monopoly on virtue. We understand that heterosexuals commit adultery and that fornication and adultery are problems even within the church of Jesus Christ. We understand that but we won't bow before a moral equivalency argument that makes these drastic differences as though they were somehow equal in shame.
Many unsuspecting people, maybe even some of you, approve homosexuality on completely false premises and make the assumption, not knowing many homosexuals because, after all, they're not that common and so there are not that many to get to know comparatively speaking, and so based on media portrayals of a camera that always shows you only what it wants you to see, many unsuspecting people approve of homosexuality having no idea what they are assenting to. By any standard, homosexual promiscuity is shocking.
It shocks the conscience and I won't go into detail, seeing pictures on Facebook of homosexual men wearing T-shirts advertising their preferred form of engagement, let's say. It's sick. It's wrong.
It's sinful. It's not normal no matter what is said to us to the contrary. So the notion, beloved, that homosexual relationships are comparable to heterosexuality is a myth. It is a complete fiction and, of course, it's portrayed that way. Do you think that if it had been portrayed that way consistently according to reality 30 years ago that we ever would have gotten to this point? There had to be a deception at work in order for people to buy it because if they had known the truth, they never would have drunk the poison. They never would have drunk the potion. Myth number 3: homosexuals are born that way.
Homosexuals are born that way. Many people, I'm going to spend a little more time on this, many people think that homosexuality is genetically determined. The media refer to the "gay gene" as if it were an established fact.
Now, if homosexuality was genetically determined, that would be a strong argument for not raising a fuss about it. I mean, after all, who fusses about their eye color? You couldn't do anything about it. You just received the genes from your parents and you got the eye colors that were assigned to you by the combination of DNA. That would be a great argument if it were true. But, you know, there is only one problem: it's demonstrably false.
