Homosexual Agenda is Low Priority, Even for Democrats

| by FRC

Not only are the Obama administration and the Pelosi-led Democrats in Congress out of step with the American public in giving high priority to

pushing a radical homosexual agenda, but they are out of step with their own Democratic base. That’s the message of a recent, admittedly unscientific survey conducted by The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC). Here’s how they described the survey:

“More than 2,000 Democratic supporters offered input, representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia. . . . Respondents were asked to rank how important a series of issues were to them. The issues were: Fully Funding Public Schools, Expanding Environmental Protections and Clean Energy, Strengthening Government Ethics Rules, Promoting Job Growth, and Promoting Equal Rights for the LGBT Community.”

The results? All five issues were rated “extremely important” by a majority of respondents–except for LGBT “Equal Rights,” which got that rating from only 47.3%. By contrast, over 80% of respondents rated “Public Education” as “extremely important.” The homosexual agenda even had 19.3% of these Democratic activists dismissing it with replies of “not very important” (7.9%), “not important at all” (5.6%), or “no answer” (5.8%). Only 5.6% were as negative toward education as a priority.

We can only hope Congressional leadership will take this into account in determining whether to make homosexuals in the military and ENDA a priority in the tight legislative calendar between now and next January, when the new Congress takes office.
