LGBT Poll Shows Millennials Are Less Tolerant of LGBT

A Harris Poll conducted for the LGBT advocacy group GLAAD shows that millennials (those who are 18-34 years old) are actually less tolerant of LGBT individuals now than they were even a year or two ago, results that have surprised and alarmed the “inclusive” Left. The percentage of young people who said they were comfortable around LGBT people dropped from 63% in 2016 to 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018. And for young women, the drop in overall acceptance fell from 64% in 2017 to 52% in 2018.

“We count on the narrative that young people are more progressive and tolerant,” John Gerzema, CEO of The Harris Poll, told USA TODAY. “These numbers are very alarming and signal a looming social crisis in discrimination.”

While these latest stats may bother LGBT supporters, evangelicals should see this as an opportunity to present a biblical perspective on the LGBT lifestyle and transform the millennials’ and anyone else’s “discomfort” into a love that reflects God’s heart and hope for those caught up in this lifestyle.

Religious Freedom and Millennials

How do today’s young people view religious liberty? Given that millennials have grown up within a culture dominated by political correctness and a misunderstanding of true tolerance, then it’s not surprising that so many view religious liberty as a personal, individual right but not one that extends to the larger marketplace.

Unfortunately, by defining religious liberty through the eyes of individualism, many millennials miss the point. Writes FRC’s Mary Beasley, “Societies are formed by individuals, many of whom infuse religious practices into their daily lives. They naturally affect, influence, and inspire those around them. Therefore, religion cannot be displaced from the actions of the individual just as the individual cannot be displaced from society. Therefore, religion cannot be contained from society.”

Is ‘Adult’ a Verb?

Using the word “adult” as a verb is becoming popular with millennials. The word is being used by them in general conversation to indicate they are taking on adult responsibilities, as in “I am adulting by paying my own bills.”

Breakpoint’s John Stonestreet thinks that millennials created the term as a way to earn recognition from peers for taking on responsibility, something that past generations did not need to do. And, apparently, some millennials need a way to tout the fact they’re finally acting like adults.
