Seriously? It's even worse than I thought.

So this was the question they're basing this on off of an absurdly low sample size:

Question: Thinking about your commitments, would you describe yourself as ....
A) Searching for purpose in your life
B) Believe all religious faiths are of equal value
C) An American patriot
D) Deeply committed to practicing your faith
E) Prefer socialism to capitalism
F) LGBTQ

Why kind of nonsensical pants-on-head-retarded multiple choice question is that? But hey, I guess if you only read the headline it makes sense why you'd jump to that conclusion.
Hey you asked for something I found it, besides I didn't write the survey.

You did find an article claiming it, I'll give you that. But the fact that you (I assume) read it and still see that as accurate info is laughable at best. If you didn't read it and just shared info based on the headline, well then that explains a lot about your views too.

My point is that it used to be that they would say you were born like that ad those numbers were like 2% of the population were gay. Now we have up to 40% identify as gay or lesbian. Are more kids being born that way or are they going alone with what they are being convinced into thinking?

The Gallup survey concluded that one in six Americans ages 18-23 were gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

D: None of the above. It's become more socially acceptable, so people who previously wouldn't have come out now feel comfortable doing so. Doesn't mean there are more gay/trans/whatever now, it just means you know about more of them. Regardless of how you personally feel about it, society's acceptance and perception of it has changed drastically, so naturally many people who previously would have been scared to "come out" are now comfortable doing so. People are less scared of being shunned, harassed, abused, even attacked. There are some weird ass people out there for sure, but do you honestly think they're pretending to be homosexual or legally and medically changing their gender because it's "cool"?

1 / 6 = 16%.....

Who's we? I'm thinking you might want to take your own survey and ask parents if they think what school boards are doing is a problem.
I'm not into organized religion either. That would be catholisim, islam, buddisim, hindusim etc. Being a Christian is having a relationship with Christ. There is only one way to heaven and that is through Christ. All other religions are false. They will not save you.

1. structured system of faith or worship, especially one followed by a large number of people, such as Christianity, Islam, or Judaism.



Not sure you understand anything about....anything. Almost everything you spout from your [fingertips] is all just random nonsense that seems to only make sense to one person on here; you. You go back and contradict yourself more times than anyone can count in a day. You literally speak like you are speaking from a cult, the exact same answer for everything, in the same way. I feel like you give other Christians a bad name, and religion in general, a bad name. The simple fact that none of this gets to you, and no matter what, you'll just cop out of any an all personal responsibility and throw it off; is simply awe inspiring, while at the same time, being so wholly regretful about how people can be so miserably obtuse and nebulous.

Not that I want to sound, unkind.

I can see people thinking it is becoming socially acceptable and moving in that direction. I also see many young people being convinced they are lgbtq because they feel like they just don't fit in. Then you have this group of people that do go to the extent of mutilating themselves to try and fit in. Some later in life realize that they had made a huge mistake and in most cases cannot undo what they have done.
To go one step farther we have some parents that allow kids to choose their gender and some go so far as to begin with drugs, puberty blockers and testosterone or what ever cocktails they use to mess up what happens naturally.
You can shave your dog bald, curl his tail and surgically alter its nose to look like a pig but at the end of the day you still have a dog, a really pissed off dog.

If you say I am a bad Christian then the way you talk to me makes you sound like an even worse person. So I am bad Christian according to your standards. You seem to enjoy verbally insulting me and others who you don't agree with.
What would be your idea of a good Christian then?

What we have is a society moving away from God and embracing and celebrating sin.

Romans 1: 24-32

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creatorwho is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know Gods righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
