LGBTQ activism 'extreme' – but also effective, according to election results

The persistence and discipline of LGBTQ activists on the political scene really came home to roost this election cycle, outshining that of Christ followers. So says a Christian activist who is dedicated to exposing the homosexual agenda.

At least 678 gender- or sexually-confused candidates ran in the 2022 midterms … and some 340 of them won. Both of those are records, according to the gay-activist group Victory Fund. They included the first lesbian governor of a state, the first homosexual elected from Vermont, and the first trans person elected to a state house.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says more can be expected in 2024 and beyond. The problem, he argues, is "the LGBTQ lobby has cemented itself within the Democratic Party."

According to the Christian activists, Democrats try to shame anyone who believes in God's design for sexuality into at least giving up the fight, if not changing their beliefs – and that's the reason the Democratic Party has sprinted so far left without being challenged, he adds.

"Even as the Democratic Party is now being perceived as too extreme on social issues, they are solidifying their control by gay and trans activists," he states.

Labarbera says gay activists are more disciplined and persistent than their moral counterparts in the GOP. "They're just so much better at getting their very hard-core activists in these legislatures than we are," he laments.

And the result, he says, makes it much easier to push their radical agenda.

"Right now, their objective is very defensive: stopping all anti-trans legislation – even the commonsense stuff, like not letting a minor chop off body parts or do puberty blockers," LaBarbera tells AFN. "On the other hand, we saw at the federal level that they were very aggressive in trying to institutionalize, through the law, homosexual 'marriage.'"

According to The Associated Press, 10% of elected state lawmakers in California identify publicly as LGBTQ – believed to be a first for any legislature in the U.S.
