and to think the militant gays claim 10%? well, it probably is more than that in the places they live. In parts of Brighton, 98%. and certain parts of London even more.

Correction: 1.5% willing to admit to a govt agency they are gay or bisexual.

Of course the actual percentage will likely never be known as long as homophobia is rampant.

You mean as long as a stigma is attached to being homosexual.

The stigma is due to homophobia, but yes.

I know I'm going to regret this, but just how do you "suffer" because of gays?

I don't believe this figure at all. I'd say its about 40%.

I'm sure the percentage is very similar here. The previous 10% figure has been thoroughly debunked. As for how we suffer, ask those who have lost their businesses because of lawsuits by gays.

If you discriminate against your customers, then you SHOULD lose your business.

You said 98.5% of the population. Is that how many lost a business because they illegally discriminated? If you, you are a liar. If not, you haven't answered my question.

That last sentence should read, "If SO" not "If YOU".
