Hang on, let me get that straight.

"the number of heterosexuals who have not engaged in a homosexual 
relationships ... are far fewer than the number of people who
have engaged in both sorts "

i.e. #homosexuals > #heterosexuals

(Defining homosexuals as being those who have ever participated
in homosexual activity and heterosexuals as those who have never 
participated in homosexual activity)

You're kidding right?

Forgive me for quoting Time magazine, but I do have a copy in 
which the number of exclusively homosexual men was approx. 1%,
that for ever participating in homosexual activity was approx 
2%.

That was a study, not homosexual or religious right 
propaganda.
