THE ACCEPTANCE AND NORMALIZATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF HOMOSEXUALS
The increasing acceptance of homosexuality is not only indicative of our moral decline but it also has the potential to "convert" many to full or part time homosexuality. Our children are now exposed to a vast amount of pro-homosexual indoctrination by the sex-obsessed media, by public schools and by peers. All of this exposure is capable of spreading the sin of sodomy like wildfire throughout our culture. This is clearly substantiated by recent census related statistics:
In the state of Utah alone: "According to U.S. Census figures, only 401 gay and lesbian couples declared themselves in 1990. In 2000, that number jumped dramatically to 3,370. The latest findings...reveal 6,503 out gay couples, an increase of over 1,600 percent since 1990.
"Overall, the study showed an increase of 437 percent nation-wide from 1990 to 2006."
"Census Bureau figures showing continuing increases in the number of same-sex couples track with other surveys showing that more Americans than ever before are identifying as lesbian, gay and bisexual." from Qsaltlake
Acceptance of homosexuality clearly emboldens those who are on the fence or simply curious to take the plunge into the abyss.
If the statistics aren't convincing how about biblical proof that homosexuality has the potential of spreading among the populace? Recall the story of the destruction of Sodom. Before God destroyed the city, Abraham approached God and pleaded with Him not to destroy the good with the wicked. God relented and stated that He would not destroy Sodom if 50 good men could be found. But Abraham, knowing that this might be an impossible task, convinced God to reduce the number of men to a mere 10.
As the story goes- 10 good men could not be found in Sodom. However, before God destroyed the city He sent His angels to assess the level of depravity. As Lot fed God's angels his home was surrounded by Sodomites:
"they had not yet retired when the townsmen...all of the people from every quarter both young and old surrounded the house and called Lot and said to him, 'where are the men who came to your house tonight? Bring them out that we may abuse them'."
Contrary to the wordly view that homosexuals "are born gay", homosexuality is a desire which can be acquired by habit and conditioning instead of by conscious choice. Thus one could become conditioned toward homosexuality based upon exposure and a willingness to entertain the very idea of it.
"For example, no one chooses to be an alcoholic, but one can become habituated to alcohol. Just as one can acquire alcoholic desires (by repeatedly becoming intoxicated) without consciously choosing them, so one may acquire homosexual desires (by engaging in homosexual fantasies or behavior) without consciously choosing them.
Since sexual desire is subject to a high degree of cognitive conditioning in humans (there is no biological reason why we find certain scents, forms of dress... sexually stimulating), it would be most unusual if homosexual desires were not subject to a similar degree of cognitive conditioning.

This conditioning to accept homosexuality is precisely what is happening to our youth. The "Howard Stern culture" has taken hold of adolescents. Teenage boys now expect their girlfriends to engage in abominations for their viewing pleasure--while the girls are more than happy to oblige. A person that has no previous penchant toward homosexuality may now choose to experiment with it. Teenagers who have been neglected morally and spiritually and are in the midst of an identity crisis are especially vulnerable to the radical message that homosexuality is natural and normal. In a hedonistic culture that seeks pleasure at any price --it seems there is no reason to deny oneself.
