We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
5% of the population at any given moment believe any number of absolutely crazy things. I like Adams, but I'm not sure what he's saying is correct in more than a trivial sense

I'd say a lot more than 5% of the population believe crazy things! What percentage of the people believe in "gender fluidity", or that there's no a problem at the southern border, or that socialism is a good idea?
Isn't the point just 5% in the middle? Conservative/liberal each have their end of the teetertotter. It's the ones in the middle that determine the pain or gain for the ones at the ends in our fine republic.
If you believe there is ANY genetic or biological cause for sexual orientation - you just proved Adams right.
"Everybody knows" that gays are "born that way" despite the failure of repeated attempts to prove it - including large surveys of identical twins and homosexual gene-pool research in the 1990s. All of which came up with nada.
The LBGT lobby just went on repeating their Big Lie.
