Here's some good news in the battle to protect biblical values on human sexuality, we are making progress in the hearts and minds of millennials!

According to a new Harris Poll, Americans aged 18-34 are becoming less and less enamored with the LGBT lifestyle every year.

In 2016, 63% of millennials considered themselves "allies" of the LGBT movement. But that number fell to 53% in 2017 and plunged to 45% last year.

Today, 36% of millennials are not comfortable when they learn a family member is homosexual (up from 29% a year ago), perhaps because they are observing the abnormalities associated with homosexuality up close.

A startling 42% of millennial males are uncomfortable learning that their child has had a lesson on LGBT history at school or has a homosexual teacher. That's up from 27% a scant two years ago.

The pro-homosexual CEO of Harris Poll says, "These numbers are very alarming." I believe the reason this is happening is simple: millennials have had the gay agenda crammed down their throats their entire lives. And 75% of them have at least one friend who is a homosexual, which means they may have personally witnessed the pathologies that come with homosexuality. It looks like the more they know about the homosexual lifestyle, the less they like what they see.

So it looks as if the scales might finally be tipping in a pro-family direction on homosexuality. This should be very encouraging news to all of us involved in the culture war! Let's continue to pray, love, persuade, and act until our entire American culture returns to a biblical view of sexuality.
