U.S. Groups Team to Overturn Sex Laws

Groups attempt to overturn sex laws

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) is teaming up with a radical sexual freedom group to eradicate "antiquated and unjust sex laws in the nation," according to a jointly released press statement.
NGLTF is joining with the Woodhull Freedom Foundation (WFF), which on its Web site calls for the legalization of prostitution and public sex.
In their press release, the NGLTF and WFF said laws against public sex "are routinely misused to persecute and prosecute people who participate in non-traditional forms of sexual expression," namely "gay and bisexual men."
According to the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), a mental health organization dedicated to helping homosexuals change their sexual orientation, what the new NGLTF-WFF alliance hopes to accomplish has already been seen in Massachusetts.
In that state, NARTH said a homosexual rights group challenged arrests of men who were charged with having sex at roadside rest areas. The Massachusetts high court ruled that men could have public sex as long as there was no "substantial risk" that they might be observed by those passing by.

Canadian survey: only 1% homosexual

Homosexual activists regularly claim that "gays" and lesbians are between 5-10% of the population, and that overinflation of numbers is used to bolster their demands for special rights.
However, in addition to previous studies in the U.S. and elsewhere, a new government survey in Canada shows that the percentage of people who claim to be homosexual is a much smaller fraction of the general population.
According to WorldNetDaily, the Canadian Community Health Survey found that just 1.3% of men and 0.7% of women said they were homosexual — amounting to roughly 1% of the population.
"What’s amazing is that, in Western nations like Canada and the U.S., homosexuals are such a small sliver of the population yet boast great political power," said AFA President Tim Wildmon. "That can only be explained by the great amount of sympathy for the homosexual agenda among the elites in the media, academia, and liberals in the nation’s capital."
