    But, to look on the bright side of the same poll, 53% thought that being gay was NOT a choice.
    And, 54% were in favor of gay marriage.
    I'd say that we've come a long way in a short amount of time.

    Well, it's a French-owned, Canadian-based company with offices in the States. Can we really trust that this isn't French agitprop? icon_wink.gif

    Are we surprised?
    A substantial group of Americans voted for George W Bush TWICE
    A recent Gallup poll said that only 39% of Americans believe evolution has created the plant and animal life we see today
    25% believe that "God" did
    and 39% said they didn't know
    We've seen many times that the American public is stupid and that they are gullible

    I wouldn't call them idiots. They just don't know. Are you a moron for thinking that you know without provable evidence? (and no, pointing the finger to yourself does not constitute provable evidence--circumstantial maybe, but indisputable it isn't). The reason they don't know is because there is currently no way to prove homosexuality is genetic or choice. You think it is, they think it's not. I don't know who is right. People should just be quiet and stop demonizing others for their opinions. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Quelle surprise.
    Statistically 49% of any population will be below the norm for intelligence, unless you're in Lake Woebegone.

    What it means is that about half the population could have sex with a member of the same sex as easily as they could with a member of the opposite sex but they simply choose not to.

    Yep, I'd say "idiot" is 100% accurate.

    That means 53% aren't idiots. That's a landslide by today's definition. Not bad.
