It is misleading in that it presents a number that is actually much smaller than the actual number of gays in the United States. For every out gay, there are many in the closet gays (If I had been asked in this survey several years ago, I would have lied and said I was straight - decreasing the gay sample by one AND improperly increasing the heterosexual sample by one).
I would hope that Michael Medved would examine his motivations behind his posting. Why are you so concerned that you want enumeration of gays in the United States is as small as can be? I think I was once where you are and hope to give you one piece of advice. Relief from internal psychological turmoil is achieved through honesty.
