Everyone Will Be Gay by 2047, Church Claims (The Agenda Is Working!)

Time to bust out the rainbow flags, straights!

A new poll of LGBTQ+ adults has one church suggesting that the United States is going to go full gay by 2047…and we’re seriously not mad about the idea.

Gallup polls have been measuring the number of adults in the U.S. who identify as “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or something other than heterosexual” for a full decade now, and in that time, the numbers have doubled. The current number clocks in at 7.1%, with another 6.6% choosing to not weigh in one way or another, according to a poll released last week.

The Universal Life Church, better known to many as that place you go online to get “ordained” so you can perform a wedding for your buddies, weighed in on Twitter, citing the new poll as reason to believe “everyone in America will be gay by 2047.”

Of course, that’s not really what the statistics mean. There are absolutely more Gen Zers identifying as LGBTQ+ than in previous generations, but that can likely be chalked up to more people feeling comfortable with acknowledging their identities to themselves and others than anything else.

So while the whole United States being overtaken by a rainbow wave would be a truly epic turn of events, the math isn’t likely to actually shake out that way — and people were quick to drag the church for pretending otherwise.

The good news is that Universal Life Church wasn’t trying to use this as a fearmongering tactic (although some conservative antigay organizations undoubtedly will), but rather a celebration of the way trends are moving. And that’s something we can get behind.

A completely LGBTQ+ country is more than the gay agenda can accomplish, I’m afraid, but we seem to be doing just fine all the same.
