San Diego talk show host Mike Slater attended last weekend’s Gay Pride event in his home town, and he stunned event-goers when he told them what percentage of the male population is gay and which politicians said several quotes against gay marriage.
Slater surveyed the attendees and one of the questions he asked them was, “What percentage of the male population do you think is gay?” He received a wide variety of answers, the lowest being 28% and the highest being 70%, but many guessed between 40-50% of the male population is gay.
Using statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Slater surprised nearly every person he encountered when he told them the CDC says only 1.8% of males are gay.
The talk show host also played a game with the attendees called, “Which Bigot Said It?”
On a white board, Slater had photos of Donald Trump, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin.
He also posted the following four quotes about gay marriage.
- “Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time.”
- “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”
- “I think marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman.”
- “For me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix.”
Slater read the quotes and asked the gay pride supporters, “Which bigot said it?”
After they made their guesses, it was revealed all the anti-gay marriage quotes came from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, which shocked them all as well.
