According to the FBI's data on 2011 hate crime incidents (the latest available data), sexual orientation was the second highest motivation, a full percentage point above religious bias:

But who needs solidly documented information when you have an agenda that wishes to both keep LGBT people vulnerable and to position the LGBT rights movement as nasty liars:

No, Bryan—they are not so rare. Sadly. This is one time I wish you were right. But you're not. As per usual.

It's unclear if Bryan will next go after religious people, people of varying ethnicity and/or national origin, or the disabled, all of whom faced fewer bias-motivated incidents than the comparatively smaller LGBT population. That of course depends on how much profit, political connectivity, and media hits his employer, the AFA, thinks it can squeeze out of those varying forms of animus.
