Topic: Increase in Young People Claiming to be LGBT+.

Jeff Johnston of Focus on the Family notes that there is a huge increase among young people to identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, etc. Jeff Johnston works as an Issues Analyst for Focus on the Family, writing and teaching about marriage, homosexuality and gender, among other issues. Johnston writes: “A new survey shows 7.2% of U.S. adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or ‘something other than heterosexual.’ The number of adults who claim these identities has more than doubled since 2012…The global analytics firm compared that number to other generational cohorts, saying, ‘The rate is 11.2% among millennials and 3.3% or less among older generations.’” Jeff Johnston wrote this in an article recently. The Babylon Bee, a satiric website, comments on the recent statistics, involving the LBTQ+ community: “Every single movie, TV show, corporation, TikTok influencer, YouTuber, public school teacher, pop star and Hollywood star in the country openly promotes and celebrates this group. Why on earth would teenagers want to be a part of that? It must be biology.” www.focusonthefamily.com
