Homosexual Couples "Surge" in WA State?

The Seattle Times reported this past week that the number of homosexual couples in Washington State has "surged" according to the recent 2010 census.

"Surged" may be a bit of an overstatement given the real numbers. They base their "surge" message on some relatively small numbers.

In 10 years, Ballard has "surged" from 45 homosexual couples to 57.

West Seattle, the part of Seattle that has "surged" the most, has increased from 62 homosexual couples in 2000 to 122 in 2010. They are now calling it "Capitol Hill West." And part of the "surge" is people moving from other areas to West Seattle.

"But," the Times says, the biggest "surge" is in Yakima, Tri-Cities and Walla Walla.

They are basing the "surge" message on a 55% increase on very small numbers.

Keep in mind that Washington State has a 2010 population of 6,724,540. An increase over 10 years of up to 30 homosexual couples living somewhere is hardly a "surge."

Also keep in mind the Obama Administration revised the Census Bureau reporting policy on homosexuals, allowing them to register as married (spouse, etc.) although they are not legally married and urged them to be counted. They were told to define their own relationships regardless of legal status.

I wrote a blog about this last year and its implication in the 2010 census. I said they would use the increased numbers to inflate the public perception of their presence in the culture.

Several national news papers, including USA Today, Wall Street Journal and others quoted my blog.

I was correctly quoted in USA Today as saying, "The census is leaving it to responders to characterize their own relationships, regardless of legal status."

USA Today wrote, "Will homosexual numbers be inflated by this, 'you decide what you are' policy? Probably, Randall wrote. "This policy shift is another attempt to confuse the discussion about marriage by creating a problem of sorts, then providing a solution that advances the homosexual agenda of redefining marriage."

At that time last year, Jamie Grant, director of National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, told USA Today the opportunity Obama and the Census Bureau had given them was "humongous".

"Our opponents are rightly concerned," Grant said, "because it does lend an air of legitimacy to our marriages. It's another way of weaving us into the fabric instead of continuing to see us as outsiders."

The homosexual activists are now seizing the "air of legitimacy" and the Seattle press, as usual, is enabling them in advancing the "air of legitimacy"...."weaving them into the fabric".

The Associated Press interviewed me Friday for their article yesterday titled, "As State's Gay Couples Expand, So Does Marriage Push."

Rachel Smith-Mosel, a lesbian middle school teacher in Tacoma, summed up the present euphoria in the homosexual community with New York legalizing homosexual "marriage" and homosexual couples "surging" in Washington State: "I'm impatient and I'm tired of waiting."

Senator Ed Murray is telling the press that the New York decision provides, "momentum for the rest of the nation, including Washington, to follow suit."

Murray says, "Though we have yet to realize full marriage equality...that goal seems more achievable than it was yesterday and closer to reality than ever before."

While Murray thinks homosexual "marriage" in the state may be a few years away, most homosexual activists are "tired of waiting," believing their own press releases, they are ready to make a move to re-define marriage in Washington State.

A challenge of biblical proportion is looming in regard to natural, biblical marriage.

Are you ready to stand in defense of the most basic, fundamental social unit in human history? A union between a man and a woman, ordained by God and affirmed by every successful civilization in human history and every major religion in the world.

The Bible teaches we are to "honor marriage". Honoring will likely involve defending it in the days ahead.

Will you stand with us?

Thank you.
