Myths, Facts, and Consequences of the Homosexual Lifestyle

" Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored." Aldous Huxley

"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." John Adams

"Against diseases here the strongest fence / Is the defensive virtue, abstinence." Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanack, 1742

o Health survey gives government its first large-scale data on gay, bisexual population - By Sandhya Somashekhar - Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation. The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual. The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey. An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they were “something else.”

o Are Same-Sex Couples Just Like You? - By Glenn Stanton - “We are loving, committed and faithful couples just like anyone else.” If you’ve paid the slightest bit of attention to the same-sex marriage debate, you’ve heard this very statement in some iteration. It’s not true by some important measures though. Same-sex male couples are dramatically more likely to be unfaithful than heterosexual couples. Committed lesbian relationships are more likely to break up than both male-male and opposite-sex couples, by dramatic margins.
   ...First, it should be noted that the research is strong and numerous enough that a recent and very provocative Atlantic cover story on what straights could learn from gay marriage couldn’t ignore it. Liza Mundy, the article’s author, doesn’t appear to have a conservative bone in her body, yet she is fair and straight-up honest with the research on the nature of committed same-sex relationships.
   ... Mundy explains that studies have found “higher dissolution rates among same-sex couples” in Scandinavia – one of the world’s most gay-friendly cultures — than married heterosexual couples. This study, published inDemography, found that even though same-sex couples enter their legal unions at older ages — a marker related to greater relational stability – male same-sex marriages break up at twice the rate of heterosexual marriages.  And the break-up rate for lesbians? A stunning 77% higher  than the same-sex male unions! When controlling for possible confounding factors, the “risk of divorce for female partnerships actually is more than twice than that for male unions.”  Mundy did not give her reader these important specifics from this study. Other studies show the same things.
   ...Other studies – conducted by celebrated lesbian scholars – find notable instability in lesbian homes, even those with children. The current National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study (NLLFS) found “a significant difference” in family dissolution rates when comparing lesbian with mother/father headed families, 56% and 36% respectively. (p. 1201)
   ... Men in same-sex, long-term relationships are dramatically more likely to be unfaithful to their partners. But that depends on how you define “fidelity”.  It is common in male-male relationships to differentiate between “fidelity” and “monogamy.” Monogamy is having sex with only one person: your partner. Fidelity however is often living according the rules made about how extra-relational sexual hook-ups will take place. A partner who runs afoul of this extracurricular agreement will be deemed unfaithful. How many hetero couples do you know who have such an agreement worked out in their marriage? We’ll see in a moment. A noted 2010 study on non-monogamy in long-term gay relationships by two gay-affirming scholars — the Couples Study — observes in their report’s first sentence: “…non-monogamous relationships are very common in the gay community…” Their data showed that of the non-monogamous, long-term couples in their study, 42 percent made an arrangement for outside-sexual relationships within the first three months of the relationship’s beginning and by the end of the first year, that number increased to 49 percent. At the seventh anniversary mark, an additional 24 percent of gay couples adopted such agreements. So such agreements are increasingly made as these relationships grow longer.
   ...By any measure, these are very different kinds of relationships compared to those of long-term heterosexuals. As such, it is difficult to say with honesty that serious gay and lesbian relationships are just like heterosexual relationships. A substantial body of research and articles written in idealistic support same-sex relationships makes this consistently clear, beyond any honest debate.  

o HOW HOMOSEXUALITY IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH - By JEFF ALLEN - If someone were to warn a drug addict about the dangers of abusing illicit substances, no one would label them as hateful. However, when the same principle is applied to homosexual behavior, the daggers come out and the “anti-gay,” “homophobic” or “hater” epithets are angrily and aggressively hurled about. The typical LGBTQ response to the above analogy is to claim that illegal drug usage is a choice, but homosexuality is not. As volitional beings, though, we most certainly have the ability to control how, when and with whom we are sexually intimate. Therefore, the most loving thing that a Christian can do is to tell the truth and steer homosexuals away from a harmful lifestyle — more appropriately referred to as a deathstyle.
   By now, most of our readers are quite aware of the numerous health issues associated with the homosexual lifestyle’s risky and dangerous behavior. The typical physical risks discussed include anorectal disorders (hemorrhoids, fissures, warts, hemorrhaging, anal cancer), HIV/AIDS and a whole host of other harmful STDs (Chlamydia trachomatis, Cryptosporidium, Giardia lamblia, Herpes simplex virus, Human papilloma virus, Isospora belli, Microsporidia, Gonorrhea, Viral hepatitis types B & C, Syphilis). Although each of these physical health hazards can also be found among heterosexuals, they occur with extraordinary frequency among the homosexual population. And all of these factors contribute to the shorter lifespans reported among members of their community.
   As further evidence of the physical and mental health risks of LGBTQ practices, Kathryn Foxhall, in a recent article for Contemporary Pediatrics, indicates the following: High school students who are sexual minorities [LGBTQ] are more likely to take risks that increase their chances of cancer than their heterosexual peers, almost across the board, according to an analysis of the Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBS). Sexual minority adolescents were more likely to take risks in behaviors such as use of tobacco, use of alcohol, binge drinking, early intercourse, no condom at last sexual intercourse, drug use at last intercourse, being overweight, purging, and little physical activity. The YRBS, conducted in U.S. high schools, was sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
   A February American Journal of Public Health study, one of a collection of research articles, found the following disparities between LGBTQ and heterosexual adolescents:
   CIGARETTE SMOKING - 5.6% LGBTQ      14.4% heterosexual
   BINGE DRINKING - 34.3% LGBTQ      22.1% heterosexual
   OVERWEIGHT - 32.7% LGBTQ      27.2% heterosexual
   The researchers, including the director of the study, Margaret Rosario, PhD, with the department of psychology in the City University of New York, say cancer “undoubtedly increases as risk behaviors become part of the behavioral repertoire; are repeated over time; become habitual; and possibly influence the development of other cancer-related behaviors.”
   Kathryn Foxhall also reported: A study by CDC researchers noted medically serious suicide attempts are perhaps the greatest indicator of future suicide. Among their findings, taken from YRBS data from 2002 to 2009 from each site with sexual orientation measures, were suggestions of higher risks of medically serious attempts among lesbians, bisexuals, and those with both-sex contact.
   A YRBS study led by Harvard researchers found that 12.6% of high school students report rarely or never wearing a seat belt, but nonuse was 48% higher for male bisexuals compared with heterosexuals; 85% higher for lesbians; 46% higher for female bisexuals; and 51% higher for females who were unsure about their orientation.
   Finally, a study entitled “Gay obituaries closely track officially reported deaths from AIDS,” published in Psychological Reports (2005;96:693-697), analyzed tens of thousands of gay obituaries and compared them with AIDS deaths data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and revealed that the life expectancy for homosexuals is about twenty years shorter than that of the general public. These findings basically confirmed a similar study conducted in Vancouver, British Columbia and published in the International Journal of Epidemiology (1997, Vol. 26, 657-61). Homosexuals have fiercely disputed this research, but it makes absolute sense that risky behavior would result in at least some diminishing of lifespans.
   One principal tactic of the homosexual lobby is to blame all of these negative health impacts upon society’s lack of approval for their lifestyle. However, it is very important for every individual to be personally accountable for their own actions. Without this, we are inviting denials of culpability and rationalizations for all types of detrimental behaviors. And people will be encouraged to dismiss any and every bad action on the basis of an unending laundry list of excuses.
   As Christians, we believe that God offers us the grace to be transformed and the ability to exercise self-control. Blaming others for our own failures will never bring about the righteous life that God desires. Taking responsibility for our own lives, however, is the key to personal and spiritual improvement. So, the homosexual would be wise to receive God’s gracious offer and abandon the lifestyle that is quite literally killing them. We realize that it would be much easier to tell them otherwise. But we love them too much to do that.
 
o Numerous health issues associated with the homosexual lifestyle’s risky and dangerous behavior.  (FactsAboutYouth.com) Unhealthy sexual behaviors occur among both heterosexuals and homosexuals. Yet the medical and social science evidence indicate that homosexual behavior is uniformly unhealthy. Although both male and female homosexual practices lead to increases in Sexually Transmitted Diseases, the practices and diseases are sufficiently different that they merit separate discussion.
   1. Male Homosexual Behavior - Men having sex with other men leads to greater health risks than men having sex with women(1) not only because of promiscuity but also because of the nature of sex among men. A British researcher summarizes the danger as follows: “Male homosexual behaviour is not simply either ‘active’ or ‘passive,’ since penile-anal, mouth-penile, and hand-anal sexual contact is usual for both partners, and mouth-anal contact is not infrequent. . . . Mouth-anal contact is the reason for the relatively high incidence of diseases caused by bowel pathogens in male homosexuals. Trauma may encourage the entry of micro-organisms and thus lead to primary syphilitic lesions occurring in the anogenital area. . . . In addition to sodomy, trauma may be caused by foreign bodies, including stimulators of various kinds, penile adornments, and prostheses.”(2) Although the specific activities addressed below may be practiced by heterosexuals at times, homosexual men engage in these activities to a far greater extent. (3)
   a. Anal-genital - Anal intercourse is the sine qua non of sex for many gay men. (4) Yet human physiology makes it clear that the body was not designed to accommodate this activity. The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In comparison, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an “exit-only” passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic. The potential for injury is exacerbated by the fact that the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from highly vascular tissue, that is, blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids. Furthermore, ejaculate has components that are immunosuppressive. In the course of ordinary reproductive physiology, this allows the sperm to evade the immune defenses of the female. Rectal insemination of rabbits has shown that sperm impaired the immune defenses of the recipient. (5) Semen may have a similar impact on humans. (6) The end result is that the fragility of the anus and rectum, along with the immunosuppressive effect of ejaculate, make anal-genital intercourse a most efficient manner of transmitting HIV and other infections. The list of diseases found with extraordinary frequency among male homosexual practitioners as a result of anal intercourse is alarming:
   Anal Cancer
   Chlamydia trachomatis
   Cryptosporidium
   Giardia lamblia
   Herpes simplex virus
   Human immunodeficiency virus
   Human papilloma virus
   Isospora belli
   Microsporidia
   Gonorrhea
   Viral hepatitis types B & C
   Syphilis (7)
   Sexual transmission of some of these diseases is so rare in the exclusively heterosexual population as to be virtually unknown. Others, while found among heterosexual and homosexual practitioners, are clearly predominated by those involved in homosexual activity. Syphilis, for example is found among heterosexual and homosexual practitioners. But in 1999, King County, Washington (Seattle), reported that 85 percent of syphilis cases were among self-identified homosexual practitioners. (8) And as noted above, syphilis among homosexual men is now at epidemic levels in San Francisco. (9)
A 2010 CDC data analysis underscores the disproportionate impact of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men in the United States. The data, presented at CDC’s 2010 National STD Prevention Conference, found that the rate of new HIV diagnosis among men who have sex with men (MSM) is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women. The rate of primary and secondary syphilis among MSM is more than 46 times that of other men and more than 71 times that of women. (10)
   A 1988 CDC survey identified 21 percent of all Hepatitis B cases as being homosexually transmitted while 18 percent were heterosexually transmitted. (11) Since homosexuals comprise such a small percent of the population (only 1-3 percent), (12) they have a significantly higher rate of infection than heterosexuals. (13)
Anal intercourse also puts men at significant risk for anal cancer. Anal cancer is the result of infection with some subtypes of human papilloma virus (HPV), which are known viral carcinogens. Data as of 1989 showed the rates of anal cancer in male homosexual practitioners to be 10 times that of heterosexual males, and growing. 30 Thus, the prevalence of anal cancer among gay men is of great concern. For those with AIDS, the rates are doubled. (14) Other physical problems associated with anal intercourse are:
   hemorrhoids
   anal fissures
   anorectal trauma
   retained foreign bodies. (15)
   b. Oral-anal - There is an extremely high rate of parasitic and other intestinal infections documented among male homosexual practitioners because of oral-anal contact. In fact, there are so many infections that a syndrome called “the Gay Bowel” is described in the medical literature. (16) “Gay bowel syndrome constitutes a group of conditions that occur among persons who practice unprotected anal intercourse, anilingus, or fellatio following anal intercourse.” (17) Although some women have been diagnosed with some of the gastrointestinal infections associated with “gay bowel,” the vast preponderance of patients with these conditions are men who have sex with men. (18)
   “Rimming” is the street name given to oralanal contact. It is because of this practice that intestinal parasites ordinarily found in the tropics are encountered in the bodies of American gay men. Combined with anal intercourse and other homosexual practices, “rimming” provides a rich opportunity for a variety of infections. Men who have sex with men account for the lion’s share of the increasing number of cases in America of sexually transmitted infections that are not generally spread through sexual contact. These diseases, with consequences that range from severe and even life-threatening to mere annoyances, include Hepatitis A, (19) Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, (20) Epstein-Barr virus, (21) Neisseria meningitides, (22) Shigellosis, Salmonellosis, Pediculosis, scabies and Campylobacter. (23) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) identified a 1991 outbreak of Hepatitis A in New York City, in which 78 percent of male respondents identified themselves as homosexual or bisexual. (24) While Hepatitis A can be transmitted by routes other than sexual, a preponderance of Hepatitis A is found in gay men in multiple states. (25) Salmonella is rarely associated with sexual activity except among gay men who have oral-anal and oral-genital contact following anal intercourse. (26) The most unsettling new discovery is the reported sexual transmission of typhoid. This water-borne disease, well known in the tropics, only infects 400 people each year in the United States, usually as a result of ingestion of contaminated food or water while abroad. But sexual transmission was diagnosed in Ohio in a series of male sex partners of one male who had traveled to Puerto Rico. (27)
   In America, Human Herpes Virus 8 (called Herpes Type 8 or HHV-8) is a disease found exclusively among male homosexual practitioners. Researchers have long noted that men who contracted AIDS through homosexual behavior frequently developed a previously rare form of cancer called Kaposi’s sarcoma. Men who contract HIV/AIDS through heterosexual sex or intravenous drug use rarely display this cancer. Recent studies confirm that Kaposi’s sarcoma results from infection with HHV-8. The New England Journal of Medicine described one cohort in San Francisco where 38 percent of the men who admitted any homosexual contact within the previous five years tested positive for this virus while none of the exclusively heterosexual men tested positive. The study predicted that half of the men with both HIV and HHV-8 would develop the cancer within 10 years. (28) The medical literature is currently unclear as to the precise types of sexual behavior that transmit HHV-8, but there is a suspicion that it may be transmitted via saliva. (29)
   c. Human Waste - Some gay men sexualize human waste, including the medically dangerous practice of coprophilia, which means sexual contact with highly infectious fecal wastes. (30) This practice exposes the participants to all of the risks of anal-oral contact and many of the risks of analgenital contact.
   d. Fisting - “Fisting” refers to the insertion of a hand or forearm into the rectum, and is far more damaging than anal intercourse. Tears can occur, along with incompetence of the anal sphincter. The result can include infections, inflammation and, consequently, enhanced susceptibility to future STDs. Twenty-two percent of homosexuals in one survey admitted to having participated in this practice. (31)
   e. Sadism - The sexualization of pain and cruelty is described as sadism, named for the 18th Century novelist, the Marquis de Sade. His novel Justine describes repeated rapes and non-consensual whippings. (32) Not all persons who practice sadism engage in the same activities. But a recent advertisement for a sadistic “conference” included a warning that participants might see “intentional infliction of pain [and] cutting of the skin with bleeding . . . .” Scheduled workshops included “Vaginal Fisting” (with a demonstration), “Sacred Sexuality and Cutting” with “a demonstration of a cutting with a live subject,” “Rough Rope,” and a “Body Harness” workshop that was to involve “demonstrating and coaching the tying of erotic body harnesses that involve the genitals, male and female.” (33) A similar event entitled the “Vicious Valentine” occurred near Chicago on Feb. 15-17, 2002. (34) The medical consequences of such activities range from mild to fatal, depending upon the nature of the injuries inflicted. (35) As many as 37 percent of homosexuals have practiced some form of sadism. (36)
   f. Conclusion - The consequences of homosexual activity have significantly altered the delivery of medical care to the population at-large. With the increased incidence of STD organisms in unexpected places, simple sore throat is no longer so simple. Doctors must now ask probing questions of their patients or risk making a misdiagnosis. The evaluation of a sore throat must now include questions about oral and anal sex. A case of hemorrhoids is no longer just a surgical problem. We must now inquire as to sexual practice and consider that anal cancer, rectal gonorrhea, or rectal chlamydia may be secreted in what deceptively appears to be “just hemorrhoids.” (37) Moreover, data shows that rectal and throat gonorrhea, for example, are without symptoms in 75 percent of cases. (38)
   The impact of the health consequences of gay sex is not confined to homosexual practitioners. Even though nearly 11 million people in America are directly affected by cancer, compared to slightly more than three-quarters of a million with AIDS, (39) AIDS spending per patient is more than seven times that for cancer. (40) The inequity for diabetes and heart disease is even more striking. (41) Consequently, the disproportionate amount of money spent on AIDS detracts from research into cures for diseases that affect more people.
   2. Female Homosexual Behavior - Lesbians are also at higher risk for STDs and other health problems than heterosexuals. (42) However, the health consequences of lesbianism are less well documented than for male homosexuals. This is partly because the devastation of AIDS has caused male homosexual activity to draw the lion’s share of medical attention. But it is also because there are fewer lesbians than gay men, (43) and there is no evidence that lesbians practice the same extremes of same-sex promiscuity as gay men. The lesser amount of medical data does not mean, however, that female homosexual behavior is without recognized pathology. Much of the pathology is associated with heterosexual activity by lesbians.
   Among the difficulties in establishing the pathologies associated with lesbianism is the problem of defining who is a lesbian. (44) Study after study documents that the overwhelming majority of self-described lesbians have had sex with men. (45) Australian researchers at an STD clinic found that only 7 percent of their lesbian sample had never had sexual contact with a male. (46) Not only did lesbians commonly have sex with men, but with lots of men. They were 4.5 times as likely as exclusively heterosexual controls to have had more than 50 lifetime male sex partners. (47) Consequently, the lesbians’ median number of male partners was twice that of exclusively heterosexual women. (48) Lesbians were three to four times more likely than heterosexual women to have sex with men who were high-risk for HIV disease-homosexual, bisexual, or IV drug-abusing men. (49) The study “demonstrates that WSW [women who have sex with women] are more likely than non- WSW to engage in recognized HIV risk behaviours such as IDU [intravenous drug use], sex work, sex with a bisexual man, and sex with a man who injects drugs, confirming previous reports.” (50)
   Bacterial vaginosis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, heavy cigarette smoking, alcohol abuse, intravenous drug use, and prostitution were present in much higher proportions among female homosexual practitioners. (51) Intravenous drug abuse was nearly six times as common in this group. (52) In one study of women who had sex only with women in the prior 12 months, 30 percent had bacterial vaginosis. (53) Bacterial vaginosis is associated with higher risk for pelvic inflammatory disease and other sexually transmitted infections. (54)
   In view of the record of lesbians having sex with many men, including gay men, and the increased incidence of intravenous drug use among lesbians, lesbians are not low risk for disease. Although researchers have only recently begun studying the transmission of STDs among lesbians, diseases such as “crabs,” genital warts, chlamydia and herpes have been reported. (55) Even women who have never had sex with men have been found to have HPV, trichomoniasis and anogenital warts.56

o TOP DOCTOR: 'GAY' BLOOD WILL TAINT U.S. SUPPLY --- 'Validating people's feelings is not our job' By CHELSEA SCHILLING - Should homosexual men – a group with the highest HIV-infection rates in the nation – be allowed to donate blood? That’s the question the federal government is considering this week as it re-evaluates whether it should lift the 30-year ban on homosexual blood donation. ...Dr. Jay Brooks, an expert in blood banking and transfusion at the University of Florida’s College of Medicine, told WND the problem with “donations from men who’ve had sex with men is that they have a much higher prevalence of HIV than the heterosexual community.” “They have a much higher prevalence,” he emphasized.
   The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, released a 2010 analysis of heavily affected populations showing “men who have sex with men,” or MSM, account for a large majority of new HIV infections, much more so than even injection drug users, or IDUs: CDC estimates of new HIV infections in 2010 show homosexual men have a much higher incidence of HIV infection than other groups, including injection drug users, or IDUs In fact, “CDC estimates that MSM represent approximated 4 percent of the male population in the United States, but male-to-male sex accounted for more than three-fourths (78 percent) of new HIV infections among men and nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of all new infections in 2010.” An estimated 1.1 million Americans are currently infected with HIV, and at least one quarter of those are said to be unaware of their infection. While some people experience symptoms early, others go years without experiencing any signs.

o CDC: 94 to 95 Percent of HIV Cases among Boys and Young Men Linked to Homosexual Sex CDC funds “gay” activist groups like GLSEN that promote acceptance of behavior tied closely to HIV By Peter LaBarbera ...a graphic from a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) online slide presentation, “HIV Surveillance in Adolescents and Young Adults” – breaking down the incidence of HIV among young men ages 13-24. In 2011, an astonishing 94.9 percent of HIV diagnoses among teenage boys (13-19-years-old) were linked to homosexual (“male-to-male”) sex. And 94.1 percent of the cases among young men ages 20-24 (more analysis follows graphic) were from “gay” sex:
   With the incidence of HIV among men so closely tied to homosexual sex, shouldn’t the government and all concerned and compassionate adults be urging young men and teenaged boys NOT to engage in or experiment with dangerous homosexual behavior? And yet, the CDC and other pro-”gay” institutions (including many schools public and private) are doing exactly the opposite, as they focus instead on affirming “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender” youth as a “sexual minority.” Feds Fund ‘Gay’ Youth Activist Groups Another CDC document, “HIV and Young Men Who Have Sex with Men” (June 2012), reports that in 2011, the CDC awarded funds to two homosexual activists groups — the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and the Gay-Straight Alliance Network (GSAN) — “to assist CDC-funded public health and environmental changes to help schools and communities meet the health and medical needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.”
   See this CNSNews article on the CDC grant. With HIV rates growing among YMSM (young men who have sex with men), the CDC’s focus on building self-esteem among LGBT youth and creating a “positive school climate” for homosexuals — includes forming “gay”-affirming clubs in schools — seems disconnected from reality.  

o Centers for Disease Control - HIV/AIDS and Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM) Revised June 2007 - In the United States, HIV infection and AIDS have had a tremendous effect on men who have sex with men (MSM). MSM accounted for 71% of all HIV infections among male adults and adolescents in 2005 (based on data from 33 states with long-term, confidential name-based HIV reporting), even though only about 5% to 7% of male adults and adolescents in the United States identify themselves as MSM [1, 2]. The number of HIV diagnoses for MSM decreased during the 1980s and 1990s, but recent surveillance data show an increase in HIV diagnoses for this group [3, 4]. Additionally, racial disparities exist with regard to HIV diagnoses within the MSM population. A recent study, conducted in 5 large US cities, found that HIV prevalence among black MSM (46%) was more than twice that among white MSM (21%) [5]. The recent overall increase in HIV diagnoses for MSM, coupled with racial disparities, strongly points to a continued need for appropriate prevention and education services tailored for specific subgroups of MSM, especially those who are members of minority races/ethnicities.

STATISTICS HIV/AIDS in 2005
(The following bullets refer to the 33 states with long-term, confidential name-based HIV reporting. See the box, before the References section, for a list of the 33 states.)

**In the 33 states with long-term, confidential name-based HIV reporting, an estimated 19,620 MSM (18,296 MSM and 1,324 MSM who inject drugs) received a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, accounting for 71% of male adults and adolescents and 53% of all people receiving an HIV/AIDS diagnosis that year [1].

**The number of HIV/AIDS diagnoses among MSM (including MSM who inject drugs) increased 11% from 2001 through 2005 [1]. It is not known whether this increase is due to an increase in the testing of persons with risk factors, which results in more HIV diagnoses, or due to an increase in cases of HIV infection

**An estimated 231,893 MSM (207,810 MSM and 24,083 MSM who inject drugs) were living with HIV/AIDS [1].

o What is Life Like for a Doctor Who Treats Gay-Identified Men? This sobering commentary describes rampant drinking, drugs and risky sex among some gay men. (Advisory: Graphic content.)

o The truth about homosexual sex by Marcia Segelstein - No one wants to hear it...no one wants to say it...but the cold, hard truth is that homosexual sex is risky at best, life-threatening at worst. Caution: Objectionable content - The Centers for Disease Control recently released information from a data analysis regarding the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.  Presented at the CDC's National STD Prevention Conference, the data indicated that the rate of new HIV cases among men who have sex with men (referred to in shorthand as MSM) is over 44 times that of other men. In an effort to look at these figures from a purely scientific and public health perspective, let's substitute smoking and cancer for homosexual sex and HIV. If the CDC released information which made a direct correlation between smoking and extremely high rates of getting cancer, people would take notice. The media would write about it. Public health organizations would make sure the news was spread. Campaigns would be launched to save lives by discouraging smoking. Public funds would be spent to deter people from engaging in such dangerous behavior. Schools would teach children about the dangers of smoking.

o Gay activists acknowledge severe health risks of lifestyle By Bryan Fischer -In a truly remarkable development, homosexual activists in Canada have openly admitted the rather severe health risks associated with their non-normative sexual behavior. A group of six Canadian "queers," to use the gay media's term, have filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, charging the nation's entire healthcare system with homophobia. In what may wind up in the "What were they thinking?" file, they have dug a deep hole for themselves by demanding that more attention be given to "the many health issues that are endemic to our community." What would those "endemic" issues be? Well, here is their list, not mine: lower life expectancy, higher rates of substance abuse, depression, HIV/AIDS, anal cancer, and suicide, and higher rates of breast cancer and cervical cancer among lesbians.
   Astonishingly, these activists admit what we have been saying for years, that "gay/bisexual men have a life expectancy 20 years less than the average man" in Canada. Even the life expectancy of lesbians, though not as severely impacted, "is still lower than the life expectancy of the general population." Suicide rates, they admit, are anywhere from double to 13.9 times higher than the general population. By their own estimates, homosexuals comprise 30% of all suicides in Canada. They admit that smoking rates among gays are up to three times higher, alcohol use up to seven times higher, and illicit drug use up to 19 times higher than the general population.
   They themselves openly acknowledge that 76.1% of all AIDS cases since statistics were first kept occur in gay and bisexual men, and further acknowledge that the infection rate is up to 26 times higher than among the population as a whole. When it comes to cancer of various types, they candidly admit that "gay men, lesbians and bisexual men and women are at higher risk for some cancers as a result of their sexual orientation (emphasis added)."
   Smoking and alcohol use puts them at elevated risk of lung and liver cancer, while their sexual activity increases their risk of anal cancer and cancers of the head, throat and neck through frequent exposure to HPV, the human papilloma virus. If there was ever a clarion call for our entire society to say with one united voice that homosexual behavior is a danger to health and should be discouraged at all costs, this is it. We've found one voice as a society with regard to drug use and drunk driving; it's time we find it with regard to homosexual behavior.

o Homosexual promiscuity: breeding a national health problem By David R. Usher and Cynthia L. Davis - "Marriage Equality" is perhaps the most convoluted canard of our time. Underneath the hood of the homosexual revolution churns the most serious avoidable health problems of our time. The majority of our most dangerous sexual diseases emanate from the homosexual revolution and are transmitted to  wives, infants, children, and men by LBGTQ individuals who are most often bisexual. Bisexuals are the majority in the LBGTQ movement. Approximately  1.8% to4% of Americans are bisexual. This broad gateway infects unsuspecting heterosexual Americans with serious or fatal diseases. The impact to heterosexual women is serious. 70% of HIV infections in women are attributed to heterosexual contact. The impact of homosexuality on the rest of us can no longer be ignored: (Much more at link.) 

o Study: Gay men spreading AIDS at alarming rate A government survey released May 31 shows 4.4 percent of gay and bisexual men ages 23 to 29 are newly infected each year with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. ...It suggests even more staggering infection rates for blacks in that group: 14.7 percent -- one in seven -- become HIV-positive each year. ...``There's all these posters around that say you can climb mountains and do whatever with HIV and AIDS. There's not enough messages about the price you have to pay,'' he said. Health officials expressed extreme concern about the high new-infection rates among young black gays and bisexuals, saying the stigma in the black community of having HIV or AIDS may be keeping testing rates low. ...Since the discovery of AIDS -- first reported in a 1981 government health bulletin as a strange form of pneumonia -- there have been about 750,000 reported cases in America. Nearly 450,000 of those patients have died.

o Smoking Scientist to Sen. Portman: Gay Marriage is Hazardous -- /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Paul Cameron, the first scientist to document the harms of secondhand smoke, went to Ohio's capital to call upon U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) to reconsider his recently announced support for gay marriage. "Sen. Portman, gay marriage is hazardous to one's health. For the sake of the son you love, urge him to marry a woman." "Danish government statistics show that wedded gays and lesbians die 10 to 20 years earlier than the conventionally married," said Cameron, citing a study of gay marriage by pro-LGBT researchers Morten Frisch and Jacob Simonsen which appeared in the March, 2013 issue of Oxford's International Journal of Epidemiology

   ...In his own study of 2,428 obituaries from The San Francisco Chronicle and The Boston Globe, Cameron said the median age of death for conventionally married men was 82, women 85, similar to Denmark. Of 1,400 obituaries in San Francisco's gay press, the median age of death was 54 for gays who died without a listed partner, 51 with. For lesbians, the median age of death was 56 for those without a listed partner, but 54 with. For transsexuals, the corresponding figures were 46 and 42.5. "Whether informal, as in San Francisco, or formal, as in Denmark, homosexual partnerships were associated with lessened lifespan," said Cameron, "just the opposite of man-woman marriage."

   ..."No responsible leader of any party, and certainly no conservative with any integrity, would be supporting same-sex marriage if he actually understood the empirical science that associates homosexuality with early death and disproportionately high rates of pedophilia, pederasty, molestation and predatory recruitment," Cameron said. 

 


o Love Is Not the Same as Acceptance By Bill Muehlenberg - Can you love someone while disapproving of what they do? In our morally confused times many folks think not. They think that we must simply accept anything; not to do so means we are unloving or intolerant. And governments have bought this contorted moral reasoning as well. But this is a recipe for disaster, and we had better get such matters sorted out before we cause even more damage. Let me tie this in to a common question.
   I am often asked what I would do if one of my children were caught out in some obvious sinful behavior or lifestyle. The homosexual activists especially like to throw this one out: ‘What would you do if your child came out as a homosexual?’ They seem to think that this is a conversation stopper, and that they have nicely cornered me. Well no, it is not the end of the conversation, and no they have not cornered me. The answer is actually rather simple: I would of course continue to love my child, even though I would not approve of the course of action they have embarked upon.
   ...What do you do if your child comes out as a homosexual? You love them and always be there for them. But you do not condone or mollycoddle their dangerous and risky behaviour. Governments too should do the same – and most are when it comes to something like tobacco use. Yet they have caved in when it comes to an equally high-risk lifestyle: homosexuality.

o Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions.  If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay. By Mark Ellis - Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way. “At best genetics is a minor factor,” says Dr. Neil Whitehead, PhD. Whitehead worked for the New Zealand government as a scientific researcher for 24 years, then spent four years working for the United Nations and International Atomic Energy Agency. Most recently, he serves as a consultant to Japanese universities about the effects of radiation exposure. His PhD is in biochemistry and statistics.
   ...Because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated. “No-one is born gay,” he notes. “The predominant things that create homosexuality in one identical twin and not in the other have to be post-birth factors.” Dr. Whitehead believes same-sex attraction (SSA) is caused by “non-shared factors,”  things happening to one twin but not the other, or a personal response to an event by one of the twins and not the other.
   ...“Sexual orientation is not set in concrete,” he notes. Even more remarkable, most of the changes occur without counseling or therapy. “These changes are not therapeutically induced, but happen ‘naturally’ in life, some very quickly,” Dr. Whitehead observes. “Most changes in sexual orientation are towards exclusive heterosexuality.” Numbers of people who have changed towards exclusive heterosexuality are greater than current numbers of bisexuals and homosexuals combined. In other words, ex-gays outnumber actual gays. The fluidity is even more pronounced among adolescents, as Bearman and Brueckner’s study demonstrated. “They found that from 16 to 17-years-old, if a person had a romantic attraction to the same sex, almost all had switched one year later.” “The authors were pro-gay and they commented that the only stability was among the heterosexuals, who stayed the same year after year. Adolescents are a special case—generally changing their attractions from year to year.”   

o Gay Marketing/Gay Marriage: What Are The Real Numbers? By Marilyn Assenheim - What percentage of America’s population is gay? Go ahead, guess. If you presumed 10 percent, 25 percent or even 30 percent of the nation’s makeup, you would be in the majority of respondents according to Gallup research polls spanning a decade. But you would still be dead wrong. Gallup conducted surveys in 2002 and 2011 asking respondents how large a chunk of the population they believed was homosexual. Both polls found that participants vastly overestimated the actual figure. Not surprisingly the percentage estimated by those polled had grown from the 2002 to the 2011 analysis, as awareness of homosexuality resulted in decreased stigmatization over time. Studies, however, conclude that the actual number of homosexuals in America, gay men, lesbians and transgender, comprise a whopping 1.7% of the population.

o What About the Children? American College of Pediatricians Warns Against Same-Sex Families by TOM MCFEELY - “The environment in which children are reared is absolutely critical to their development,” the college states in a position statement about homosexual parenting posted in the “Position Statements” section of its website, acpeds.org. “Given the current body of research, the American College of Pediatricians believes it is inappropriate, potentially hazardous to children, and dangerously irresponsible to change the age-old prohibition on homosexual parenting, whether by adoption, foster care, or by reproductive manipulation,” it says. “This position is rooted in the best available science.” The American College of Pediatricians’ position statement references the many studies that have found that children thrive best in families with a married mother and father.      ...Stefanowicz said she also learned from an early age that she shouldn’t discuss what her family life was like. One of the things it included was accompanying her father to sites where the homosexual cruising subculture was occurring, such as parks and beaches and bathhouses. Along with witnessing her father’s abnormal sexual behaviors, Stefanowicz said she also had to deal with other problems that he and his partners had, including mental health issues and addictions. Other adults who were raised in same-sex households have told Stefanowicz that they had to wrestle with the negative consequences of the same kind of experiences.     

 ...American College of Pediatricians board member Cretella said that the interests of children like Dawn are being ignored in the renewed debate over the legalization of same-sex “marriage” that was triggered by last month’s California Supreme Court decision legalizing such unions in that state. “The way the issue has been framed by same-sex marriage activists is purely looking at individual rights — the rights of adults,” she said. “And they have removed any concept of family from the definition of marriage.”      .

..Today, she is an accountant and home schools her two children and operates a website, http://dawnstefanowicz.com, dedicated to providing support and healing to other people reared in homosexual families. And she’s also determined to tell Americans about the heartbreak they are inviting if they allow courts and legislatures to legalize homosexual “marriage” nationally, as Canada’s federal parliament did in 2005. Said Stefanowicz, “I’m hoping that many, many people will wake up and start looking at children’s best interests.”

o GLAAD can't handle the truth, hates the First Amendment Bryan Fischer - GLAAD, which stands for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, has taken umbrage with me for saying on Fox that homosexual behavior "is conduct that bears enormous psychological and physical risk to those that engage in it" and "is just as risky and just as dangerous as injection drug use." GLAAD put almost immediate pressure on the Fox affiliate to apologize for giving me any air time at all, being the fans they are of the First Amendment and all, and according to GLAAD, Fox at first said they would. But subsequently, the Fox station has had an apparent change of heart and has yet to issue the promised apology. Perhaps it's because Fox did some research and found out I was telling the truth. Here is the information I used on Fox, pulled this very day off the CDC's website (Centers for Disease Control). You will note that these are cumulative figures from the beginning of the epidemic through 2009, the last year for which statistics are available.


o The Top Ten Harms of Same-Sex "Marriage" By Peter Sprigg Senior Fellow for Policy Studies Family Research Council (2011) - Some advocates of same-sex "marriage" scoff at the idea that it could harm anyone. Here are ten ways in which society could be harmed by legalizing same-sex "marriage." Most of these effects would become evident only in the long run, but several would occur immediately. Immediate Effects Taxpayers, consumers, and businesses would be forced to subsidize homosexual relationships.

o Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage Will Increase Prevalence of Homosexuality: Research Provides Significant Evidence - Trayce L. Hansen, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist, recently reviewed extensive worldwide research on the origins of homosexuality and the impact social endorsement has on the rate of homosexual behavior. Dr. Hansen's findings are reported in a newly released article entitled, "Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage Will Increase Prevalence of Homosexuality: Research Provides Significant Evidence." This latest piece is the author's third in a series of articles concerning same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and children.

o Homosexual U.K. Documentarian Says Gay Lifestyle a "Sewer" of Casual Degrading Sex, Drug Abuse and Misery Simon Fanshawe is a writer and broadcaster who created the documentary "The Trouble With Gay Men" after becoming increasingly alarmed at the shallowness and destructiveness of the "gay lifestyle." The film, made for BBC 3 television, questions the emotional and psychological immaturity, narcissism, nihilism and self-destructive tendencies of many in the homosexual community. Fanshawe says he wants homosexual men to "grow up" and get beyond their state of "extended adolescence." ...Extreme vanity" he says, has been "sewn into gay culture." It "is now so mainstream in the gay community that otherwise intelligent young men are happy to be treated as sex objects on a demeaning meat rack." ...The documentarian asks the proprietor of a gay sex bath house, "Paul", who had just related some graphic stories of group sexual encounters in the establishment, "Are we just swimming around in a sewer which we're just sort of saying is normal?"...Fanshawe says he is horrified at the lack of emotional involvement and at the willingness of men to engage in "unsafe sex." The film includes statistics that show the deadly consequences of the homosexual lifestyle. One in nine gay men in London is HIV infected and new cases of HIV have doubled in the city in five years. Incidences of syphilis have increased in the same time period 616 per cent. "Unsafe" sex, he says, is not the only way in which gay men are self destructive. "If there's a new drug, gay men will find it and take it," he states. At one point Fanshawe interviews a homosexual man who has "done all the drugs" and now campaigns in gay clubs against the growing use of crystal methamphetamine. The man, who could not be identified for fear of reprisals from drug dealers, said that crystal meth is preferred in the gay community because it reduces the inhibitions and allows sex to be brought to an "animalistic" level "devoid of emotion." The film says that one in five gay men in London use crystal meth.

o Time to shut down homosexual clubs - By Linda Harvey - When are public health officials going to intervene and shut down homosexual clubs and other pro-homosexual programs in our schools? Last week, the Centers for Disease Control released a report on HIV/AIDS diagnoses between 2001 and 2006. The data revealed that HIV diagnoses rose over 12 percent annually among MSM – that's males having sex with males – in the 13 to 24 age group. Among all MSM, HIV/AIDS diagnoses are up over 8 percent during that time period (an estimated 1.5 percent annually). Did you get that? Each year, 12 percent more boys and young men were diagnosed with HIV. The trend is straight uphill. Yet homosexual activist groups like GLSEN and PFLAG, in lockstep with the ACLU and even Planned Parenthood, convince educators that safe-sex condom demonstrations, "gay straight alliances," and tolerance and diversity lessons are necessary "support" for those who are presumably born to engage in this behavior. Our beautifully designed 14-year-old boys were created to have anal sex? Right.


For those involved with children, either in schools, organizations, etc. are you willing to risk the consequences of promoting a lifestyle that produces dire health and emotional trauma, on your own children, your nieces and nephews, your neighborhood children? If so, what is the real "hate" crime?

"On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves." Dr. Joseph Warren, Founding Father & President of the Massachusetts Congress

Example of what the mainstream media doesn't report: The increase in children being born out of wedlock in Scandinavia since marriage was redefined! William Murray, the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, warns of the dangers of legalizing same-sex marriage in the United States. He says Scandinavia has had nearly a decade of legal homosexual marriage, and it has nearly destroyed the institution of marriage altogether. More details: http://headlines.agapepress.org/archive/4/132004c.asp (Excerpts: ...In Scandinavia, illegitimate birth rates exceed 50 percent. The majority of Swedish and Norwegian children are born out of wedlock, and 60 percent of first-born children in Denmark have unmarried parents. Meanwhile, marriage rates subtly decline while, in some countries, divorce rates have skyrocketed to nearly 80 percent. ...Still, as Kurtz noted, such studies have been done. He says they showed that "throughout Scandinavia (and the West) cohabiting couples with children break up at two to three times the rate of married parents. So rising rates of cohabitation and out-of-wedlock birth stand as proxy for rising rates of family dissolution.")

Same-sex Consequences

The opening paragraph of the Declaration of Independence (which Thomas Jefferson also provided the draft): "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." The second paragraph continues: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness...."

If you violate the natural law of gravity you will be subject to the consequences of the fall. If you purposely jump out of a plane without a parachute the health risks will prove deadly and the consequences also effect others. If you practice homosexuality and violate "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" you become subject to the health risks associated with that lifestyle, devastating those who love you, and heaping healthcare costs upon society. Legalizing such violations against nature is then compounded by mandating children be taught that violating "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" is acceptable, which may well place their lives in danger as well if they are persuaded and deceived into taking such a risk. (See Joshua 7-8 for a lesson in how personal choices can result into national ramifications.)

"The Declaration of Independence...[is the] declaratory charter of our rights, and the rights of man." Thomas Jefferson (letter to Samuel Adams Wells, 1819) Reference: The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Lipscomb and Bergh, eds., 15:200.

"Any single man must judge for himself whether circumstances warrant obedience or resistance to the commands of the civil magistrate; we are all qualified, entitled, and morally obliged to evaluate the conduct of our rulers. This political judgment, moreover, is not simply or primarily a right, but like self-preservation, a duty to God. As such it is a judgment that men cannot part with according to the God of Nature. It is the first and foremost of our inalienable rights without which we can preserve no other." John Locke

"The liberty enjoyed by the people of these states of worshiping Almighty God agreeably to their conscience, is not only among the choicest of their blessings, but also of their rights." George Washington

On August 1, 1776, Samuel Adams stood before a large crowd on the steps of the Philadelphia Statehouse and delivered a speech before the formal signing of the Declaration Of Independence on August 2, 1776. In his speech he stated: "We have explored the temple of Royalty and found that the idol that we have bowed down to has Eyes which see not, Ears that hear not our Prayers, and a heart like the nether millstone. We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom alone all men ought to be obedient; He reigns in Heaven, and with a propitious Eye beholds His subjects assuming that freedom of thought, and dignity of self direction, which He bestowed upon them. From the rising to the setting Sun, may His Kingdom come."

Facts & Consequences
Personal and social consequences of the "alternative lifestyle."

Getting the Facts Straight on Pro-Gay Pamphlet A joint project by the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Psychological Association (APA) is giving parents 16,000 new reasons to question the agenda of national teachers' union leaders. The NEA and APA have partnered to produce a booklet titled, "Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth," which they plan to distribute to every superintendent in America's 16,000 school districts. Among the so-called "facts" in the 24-page document is the opinion, that homosexuality is "a normal expression of human sexuality." The booklet also warns teachers not to discuss "transformational ministries" that suggest homosexuality is a condition that can be changed.

Surveys Reveal Sex Practices of Homosexuals Two recent surveys of the homosexual community -- one in the U.S. and one in Ireland -- reveal that the homosexual lifestyle continues to be plagued by promiscuity and unsafe sex practices. A survey by The Advocate, a homosexual magazine, revealed that promiscuity is a reality among homosexuals. The poll found that 20 percent of homosexuals said they had had 51-300 different sex partners in their lifetime, with an additional 8 percent having had more than 300. Unprotected homosexual sex is also a concern among health professionals. A survey in Ireland by the Gay Men's Health Project found that almost half of homosexuals said they were having unprotected sex.

iMAPP Study: The Demand for Same-Sex Marriage - What proportion of gay and lesbian people choose to marry, when the option is legally available? In a new study, the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy offers the first estimates of the proportion of gay people choosing to enter a same-sex marriage in every jurisdiction of the world where official same- sex marriage statistics are available, including the Netherlands, Belgium, Massachusetts, and 9 of 13 Canadian provinces and territories. Gary Gates of the Williams Project at UCLA law (and a leading demographer of gays and lesbians) said “This fascinating study provides important information about the willingness of lesbians and gay men to marry in jurisdictions where marriage is available to them.”


CDC stats reveal cost of unhealthy homosexual lifestyle

March 2006 - A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that syphilis is on the rise, especially among homosexual men. The report found that syphilis has increased 81 percent among men since the year 2000, while it has declined among women over that same period. And Bob Knight of the Culture and Family Institute believes the figures show yet another contribution to society from the homosexual lifestyle. "The homosexual activists like to say that these diseases are an equal threat to everyone," he says, "but the CDC statistics show that syphilis is falling among women and yet increasing astronomically among men who have sex with men. So it shows that homosexual activity, in and of itself, is very dangerous." And the pro-family spokesman maintains that this increase among homosexual men is not random or incidental. "This reflects a pattern we've seen with other diseases," he says, "including gonorrhea and new strains of tuberculosis that are affecting men who have sex with men and who also have HIV." Homosexuality is a demonstrably dangerous lifestyle, Knight contends, and he feels the government should do all it can to dissuade people from getting involved in it. [Bill Fancher] AgapePres

July 2005 - A Family Research Institute spokesman says a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals some interesting facts about what homosexuals and smokers cost the American taxpayer in terms of health-care expenses. The Institute's Dr. Paul Cameron has taken the CDC numbers and broken them down to an individual level. By his calculations, smokers cost U.S. taxpayers $156 billion a year. "For direct medical costs, days at work lost, all the indirect cost of fires and whatever, it figures out to a little over $3,000 per smoker, per year," he says. But on the other hand, Cameron notes, homosexuals cost American taxpayers $102 billion a year. And since there are so few homosexuals as compared to smokers, he says the individual cost is more than $25,000 per homosexual per year. This calculation is based on the AIDS factor alone, without taking other unhealthy aspects of the homosexual lifestyle into consideration, such as transmission of other sexually transmitted diseases or the high incidence of depression and attempted suicide among homosexuals.

Caution...This section contains descriptions not suitable for children

Also, the following is the full quotation by "gay" writer Jack Hart, available on the Culture & Family Institute's website at http://www.cwfa.org/articles/3962/CFI/cfreport/:

QUOTE: Sodomy: Efficient Disease Transmitter

[Warning: upsetting material]

The following excerpt comes not from Rev. Jerry Falwell or the "religious right," but a homosexual writer, Jack Hart:

"Many sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) occur more often among gay men than in the general population. Several factors contribute to this difference: Gay men have the opportunity to engage in sex with more people than do most heterosexual men, and some practices common in the gay community -- especially rimming ["gay" slang for oral-anal stimulation] and anal intercourse [sodomy] -- are highly efficient ways of transmitting disease…."-- Jack Hart, author, Gay Sex: A Manual for Men Who Love Men (Allyson Publications: Boston, 1991), p. 156, in section on "Sexually Transmitted Disease." The writer goes on to write that "the increasing acceptance of safer sex" has lessened the spread of STD's, and then discusses the "most common" sex-transmitted diseases other than HIV confronting homosexual men, including: chlamydia, crab lice, giardiasis, gonorrhea, hepatitis-A and -B, herpes simplex, nongonococcal urethritis, scabies, syphilis, and venereal warts.


Homosexual Admits Truth About Lifestyle—And Bug Chasing - December 8, 2005 – A former drug-addicted homosexual was on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Nov. 28, 2005 to discuss his crystal meth addiction and the homosexual lifestyle. He calls AIDS “our disease.” 

During the interview, Jay Dagenhart admitted that he tried to commit suicide at one point by diving into a pool, but God spared his life. “…I landed on my back and my head. And I landed in the sand and instead of the concrete. So we do know there is a God because I’m here and I’m alive and I’m not paralyzed, so, you know…”  He also described seeking out sexual acts in bathhouses. He describes them this way: These bathhouses are dark, cavernous, multilevel facilities.

They're small rooms with doors. There are group rooms with monitors, you know, constantly with every porn movie that you could ever imagine. There's basements. There's steam rooms. There's showers. They also have larger dark rooms where just platforms and kind of benches and chairs where you can't really see who you're having sex with. You're groping and grabbing and fondling one another in the dark.

Hooking up on the Internet with crystal meth was yet another way that I could find drugs and sex. The whole idea behind sex parties is extended periods of time in someone's home or hotel room and you're walking around naked, lots of drugs, lots of lubricant and lots of porn. I would be so high, it would be nothing for me to be with 15, 20, 25 men in a night. It was never a part of my agenda to practice safe sex. You know, it's always about barebacking, having sex without condoms. That is the norm. You know, wearing condoms is the rare thing when you're high on crystal meth.

Later in the interview, he says:

My gay brothers are suffering. You know, we have HIV. AIDS is our disease and now we have the disease of addiction. And it is killing my community. And I'm so tired--whether it's New York and Chelsea or the Castro in San Francisco or in Miami, you see us walking around and our eyes are bulging out of our heads. We're gritting our teeth and we're looking for the next man that we can sleep with, you know? And the idea of wearing condoms is absolutely out the window. The agenda is barebacking. The agenda is bugchasing and going out and seeking the virus because like myself I had...

Jay Dagenhart gives credit to God for sparing his life, but still considers himself a homosexual. Please pray for Jay that he will see that God has spared him for a reason and that a homosexual lifestyle is not God’s perfect will for his life.

Paul Cameron, one of the nation’s leading researchers on the health dangers of the homosexual lifestyle, was the first scientist to document the health effects of second-hand tobacco smoke (1967), the shortened lifespan of those who engage in homosexuality (1992), and the more frequent molestation of charges by homosexual foster parents (2003) . He has served as an expert for the federal government and 5 states. In addition, he has testified as an expert witness regarding homosexual parents in 11 states. His website is: http://www.familyresearchinst.org/

Homosexual Males Have High Rates Of Human Papillomavirus Infections December 16, 2004 – The December 15, 2004 issue of the Journal of Infectious Diseases has published a new report indicating high rates of anal Human Papillomavirus infections, which can result in anal cancer. The study notes that HPV infection is causally linked to anal cancer and was found in 57% of the homosexuals who participated in the study.

HIV/AIDS infections among gay men increase in the U.S. (December 2, 2004) Once again there is bad news on the AIDS front, as increasing numbers of gay men in the United States suffer from this deadly disease even as a successful program for preventing HIV infection is all but ignored. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control shows that new HIV and AIDS cases among homosexual and bisexual men rose 11 percent from 2000 to 2003. About a half-million Americans have died from AIDS, and homosexual behavior is a risk factor in a majority of those cases. Yet, proven methods of preventing HIV infection exist. Uganda's "ABC" model has led to an astounding decline in the number of HIV infections there. It is high time for the U.S. HIV/AIDS establishment to learn from Uganda's remarkable success in reducing HIV/AIDS infections through emphasis upon sexual abstinence and faithfulness.  Additional Resources The Negative Health Effects of Homosexuality http://www.frc.org/index.cfm?i=IS01B1&f=WU04L02&t=e

Several alarming studies reveal that rates of AIDS and syphilis are all escalating within the homosexual community, stumping public health officials who have been trying to promote "safe sex" for almost 20 years.

Study: Homosexuals have more emotional problems. The Royal College of Psychiatrists in Britain has released a study demonstrating that homosexual men and women suffer from higher rates of emotional and mental health problems, and are also more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol.

The Negative Health Effects of Homosexuality Issue No.: 232 by: Timothy J. Dailey, Ph. D. - Homosexual activists attempt to portray their lifestyle as normal and healthy, and insist that homosexual relationships are the equivalent in every way to their heterosexual counterparts. Hollywood and the media relentlessly propagate the image of the fit, healthy, and well-adjusted homosexual. The reality is quite opposite to this caricature which was recently conceded by the homosexual newspaper New York Blade News: Reports at a national conference about sexually transmitted diseases indicate that gay men are in the highest risk group for several of the most serious diseases. . . . Scientists believe that the increased number of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) cases is the result of an increase in risky sexual practices by a growing number of gay men who believe HIV is no longer a life-threatening illness.[1] (Click here for complete article and references.)

Still not enough? The increase in children being born out of wedlock in Scandinavia since marriage was redefined! William Murray, the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, warns of the dangers of legalizing same-sex marriage in the United States. He says Scandinavia has had nearly a decade of legal homosexual marriage, and it has nearly destroyed the institution of marriage altogether.

Still not enough?  TVC Publishes New Report On Next Phase Of Homosexual Agenda July 23, 2004 – The next phase of the homosexual agenda is already in operation but has received little attention in the national press. In June, 2004, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) announced a new alliance with the Woodhull Freedom Foundation (WFF). Their alliance is going to "study" what it has described as America’s "archaic" laws dealing with consensual sex between adults and children, prostitution, and sex acts in public restrooms and parks. The NGLTF/WFF alliance will then file lawsuits to have these laws overturned. The NGLTF press release issued on May 28, 2004 described this plan. TVC’s report, "Exposed: The Next Phase Of The Homosexual Agenda," details the worldwide effort by homosexuals to overturn age of consent laws, legalize prostitution, and overturn laws prohibiting public sex.

"And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea." Jesus (Matthew 18:5-6 NIV) Will YOU also be the cause of little ones to sin?

"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." (Samuel Adams)

Health Care Crisis?

The Federalist 03-04 Digest: On the culture front, this item on homosexuals from the cover of Rolling Stone: "Bug Chasers: The Men Who Secretly Long To Be HIV+." The pop-culture magazine claims, "The men who want the virus are called 'bug chasers,' and the men who freely give them the virus are called 'gift givers.' While the rest of the world fights the AIDS epidemic and most people fear HIV infection, this subculture celebrates the virus and eroticizes it." Dr. Bob Cabaj, director of behavioral-health services in San Francisco and past president of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association notes: "[Homosexual activists] don't want to address that this is really going on." Cabaj says that 25% of the new AIDS diagnoses are "bug chasers," but Thursday, after pressure from homosexual groups across the nation, Cabaj put his statistics back in the closet. That 25% figure may not be accurate, but the degeneracy of homosexual pathology remains 100% despair.

Dr. John R. Diggs, Jr., has published a 16-page document on the serious medical dangers of sodomy. This should be in the hands of politicians, teachers, pastors, and journalists. "The Health Risks Of Gay Sex," written by Dr. John R. Diggs, Jr., for the Corporate Resource Council is a must-read for anyone who is fighting the homosexual agenda or concerned about the normalization of homosexuality among our nation's teenagers. The report deals with the following issues: Levels of Promiscuity, Physical Health, Mental Health, Life Span, and Monogamy. According to Dr. Riggs, "Encouraging people to engage in risky sexual behavior undermines good health and can result in a shortened life span. Yet that is exactly what employers and governmental entities are doing when they grant GLB [Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual] couples benefits or status that make GLB relationships appear more socially acceptable." Read and distribute "The Health Risks Of Gay Sex" to your local media outlets, politicians, school boards, pastors, etc. You can download this report in a PDF format and email it to your contacts. Distribute TVC's report on the dangers of sodomy.

Blood Supply: If you've spoken with family and friends about same-sex "marriage," you've no doubt had to answer this question: "How will same-sex 'marriage' impact me?" Well, a controversy brewing in Oregon shows just how dangerous the success of the gay agenda can truly be. Students at Western Oregon University are demanding that the Red Cross be banned from conducting blood drives there unless it changes its donor policy, which rejects blood from men who've had sex with other men because of the high probability of HIV infection. But that reason isn't good enough for the people who care more about the success of the gay agenda than they do about the health of the American public. And if homosexuals meet their goals of obtaining protected class status and the right to marry, it will soon become national policy to ban any sort of discrimination against them, putting the lives of Americans at risk. The truth is, if we let this train leave the station, the fight over our blood supply will be just one car in a long train of problems created by same-sex "marriage." FRC.org

Will Same-Sex 'Marriage' Lead to a Health Care Crisis? In today's USA Today, an article on benefits employers offer to same-sex couples quoted me as calling attention to the fact that legalizing same-sex "marriage" and mandating health insurance coverage will cause premiums to skyrocket for everyone. But the newspaper stopped far short of giving readers an accurate picture of how those costs will soar. If homosexuals and their high risk health behaviors are covered, health care costs will force annual premiums to increase as much as $300-500. One California health care plan that services 700,000 members found that expenditures for same-sex couples were 17.1 percent higher than for heterosexual couples. And since California law prohibits insurance companies from passing the increased costs onto the higher risk groups, every one of those 700,000 members was slapped with a higher premium.  The Human Rights Campaign estimates that drug and other health care expenditures for a single homosexual HIV/AIDS patient averages $10,000-12,000 per year. But those costs are expected to swell, as today's New York Times reports that the average annual cost per person of just one AIDS drug ballooned from $1500 to $7800, prompting AIDS groups to lobby Congress for the importation of cheaper drugs. The closer we move towards legalizing same-sex "marriage" and mandating coverage for homosexuals, the less access the elderly will have to healthcare and the more American families will be forced to forgo coverage altogether to join the more than 40 million Americans who currently have no healthcare coverage. 

Rising health care costs are forcing U.S. employers to examine who they have on their insurance rolls. Companies are trying to cut costs by weeding out dependents who do not qualify, such as children over a specific age limit. Previously, employers used annual spot checks to allow employees to update their own records, but now the company officials are saying that is not enough. Some major corporations, such as DaimlerChrysler and Ford Motor Company, have turned to intense audits of the insurance rolls. Both Chrysler and Ford are reporting significant savings into the millions of dollars after cutting almost 75,000 ineligible dependents. And now some cities, such as Buffalo, New York, are looking to get into the act. Sam Hoyt, the Democratic representative for Buffalo, says he believes that this kind of oversight could help government and school districts save jobs.

From The Homosexuality Debate -- in the Public Arena - F. Earle Fox
(Warning explicit and disgusting)

The following figures are taken from one of the largest (850 pp.) studies on this subject, "The Gay Report" (1979), by two homosexual researchers, Karla Jay and Allen Young. The pair and their respondents are stunningly candid.  According to their research:

Around 99% of homosexual males engage in oral sex; 91% engage in anal sex; 82% engage in "rimming", touching the anus of one's partner with one's tongue and inserting the tongue into the anus; 22% engage in "fisting", inserting one's fist into the rectum of the partner; 23% engage in "golden showers", urinating on each other; 4% engage in "scat", the eating of feces, and in "mud rolling", rolling on the floor where feces have been deposited.

Homosexual promiscuity is enormous. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that the average active homosexual male ingests the fecal material of 23 different men each year (largely from rimming), and that the number of sexual partners averages nearly 100. Homosexual persons, per year, on average fellated 106 different men, swallowed 50 of their seminal ejaculations, and had 72 penile penetrations of the anus.

Medical consequences are so devastating that the average practicing homosexual person loses from 25% to 40% of his/her lifespan, typically not living beyond 50 in a culture where we average well into our 70's. Sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) commonly gotten from homosexual behavior include gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis A and B, anal cancer, amoebic "gay" bowel disease, and herpes. Over 50% of American HIV/AIDS cases are contracted by practicing homosexual persons -- less than 3% of the population. The Red Cross will not accept blood from anyone who has had same-sex sex, even once, since 1977. Joel Beltz writes in World Magazine, "Here is a whole category of people in our culture today unable to perform a basic function of human society – to share their blood with their fellow human beings."

Homosexual behavior is lethal. Nearly 1,000,000 Americans have been infected with HIV -- and 400,000 have died -- of a behavior-caused, and thus preventable, disease, largely because those in the medical watchtowers have remained silent as this enemy of social order entered the gates and seized the levers of power. There is no excuse for the abysmal ignorance of the public, nor for the cowardice of medical (and other) professionals in sounding the warning.

Psychologically, the evidence shows homosexuality to be compulsive and addictive. When warned that continuing their behavior would result in a high death rate, homosexually active persons typically respond that such a request was an attack on their identity and personhood, not on their behavior. "Homosexuality is who I am, not what I do!!" The continued justification and practice of self-destructive behavior, even when warned, is evidence of a compulsive and addictive pattern.

The social consequences of the homosexual agenda include the deconstruction of marriage and of sexual morality, and the criminalization of honest discussion through "hate-crime" laws.

Given these facts: Would a loving person (God, or a compassionate legislator) approve homosexual behavior, or reject and forbid it? Would such behavior be consistent or inconsistent for persons made -- male and female -- in the image of a loving and reasonable God?


The Five Big Myths of Pro-'Gay' Religion

Written especially for teens and college students, who hear these way too often. From Mission America, www.missionamerica.com.

Myth # 1:GOD LOVES EVERYONE, SO HOMOSEXUALITY IS FINE. God does love everyone, but not our sins, which is the reason Christ died and rose again--to save us from sin. God loves murderers, anorexics and liars-- and wants these people to stop their damage to others and to themselves. It's the same with homosexuality. Such desires are directly the opposite of positive, healthy choices, and scientists remain unconvinced that any humans are born to become homosexual. Plenty of evidence attests to the damage to the body, mind and spirit resulting from homosexual sex. There are many logical reasons why it remains a sin.

Myth #2: THE BIBLE DOES NOT OPPOSE HOMOSEXUALITY. If the Bible's clear passages against homosexuality can't be believed, it isn't believable on anything. Consider: "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination." (Leviticus 18:22) And, "For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due." (Romans 1:26-27) And these aren't the sole passages, but the others are similar and convey the same message: Don't.

Myth # 3: THE STORY OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH DID NOT CONDEMN HOMOSEXUALITY. On the contrary, the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19) is quite obviously about homosexuality. The sins of the people were numerous, but their "trademark" sin was homosexual sex, which is apparent in the original passage as well as later Bible references to the event.

In the Genesis account, Lot and his family barricade themselves and their male guests inside their home as protection against the sexual depravity of a gang of males: "Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, 'Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.'" (verses 4-5) Lot begs them to go away, then offers them his virgin daughters instead (one more clear indication of the predators' goal). Despite Lot's questionable parenting here, the mob threatens Lot and accuses him of being judgmental (shades of 2005!), then begins to break down the door. The two guests, who've previously been identified as angels (verse 1), pull Lot back into the house and send a blinding light to disperse the crowd. The angels then instruct Lot and his family to flee the town, which they are about to destroy. Thi!
 s destruction occurs soon afterward.

The Bible provides a laundry list of grave sins committed by the Sodomites: pride and insolence (see Ezekiel 16:49-50; 2 Peter 2: 6-10), gluttony (Ezekiel 16:49), greed and laziness (Ezekiel 16:49-50) disrespect toward God and His true believers(Isaiah 3:9, Ezekiel 16:50), false worship (Deuteronomy 29:23-26; Isaiah 1:10-11; Jeremiah 23:14; Ezekiel 16: 46-56), lies, especially by the prophets/priests (Jeremiah 23:14), violence (Isaiah 1:21) and neglecting the poor and orphaned (Isaiah 1:23, Ezekiel 16:49-50). The main sin mentioned is sexual immorality (Jeremiah 23:14; Ezekiel 46-56, 2 Peter 2:6-18; Jude 7-19), specifically homosexuality (Genesis 19:4-5; Ezekiel 16:50; 2 Peter 6-18; Jude 7-8)  Subsequent references to the "twin cities" in both the Old and New Testaments use them as a metaphor or simile for many types of bad behavior, by which we get more information about their nature and reputation. Sodom and Gomorrah are also frequently referenced as examples of total corr!
 uption, subject to God's wrath (Genesis 18:20; Deuteronomy 29:23; Isaiah 13:19; Jeremiah 49:18 and 50:40; Amos 4:11; Zephaniah 2: 9-10; Romans 9:29; 2 Peter 2:6-19), including by Jesus Himself (Matthew 10:15 and 11:24; Luke 10:12). Jesus was describing the fate of those cities refusing to hear the Gospel.

Some ill-informed Christian writers contend Sodom and Gomorrah really describes the consequences of being "poor hosts" to strangers, violating customs in the ancient near East. When one reads all the relevant Bible passages, such a pitiful and inadequate explanation is not possible.

Myth #4: REAL CHRISTIAN LOVE CALLS FOR ACCEPTANCE OF HOMOSEXUALITY. On the contrary, the authentic Christian is characterized by devotion to truth and love as revealed by Christ, not mushy sentimentality swayed by today's worldly trends. While Christ is often merciful even to those who have sinned, He never excuses sin or calls it less than what it is. John the Baptist's primary message to the world to prepare for Christ was not a call for tolerance; it was a call to repentance. (Matthew 3:2; Mark 1:4) Christ told the woman caught in adultery, "Go and sin no more." (John 8:11)  Love as exemplified by Christ was always framed with His truth and righteousness. Christ said, "He who has my commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me." (John 14:21) and "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word." (John 14:23) Real love starts with love of Christ and all He taught.

The passage, "Judge not, that you be not judged" (Matthew 7:1) cautions us to judge carefully without hypocrisy, not to withhold judgment. Four verses later, Christ completes the thought with, "Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." (Matthew 7:5)

Myth #5: JESUS NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY. And Jesus is never quoted on the subjects of rape or wife beating either. Would that mean that these actions are okay? Christ was God on earth, and as such, was part of all the Old Testament teaching on sexual morality. The Jews were more than familiar with this, so there was a lot that didn't need to be said. And Christ specifically described marriage as being "from the beginning" between one man and one woman. (Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9).There's no reason not to believe as the apostles did that sexual immorality still included homosexual acts.

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates the light, and doesn't come to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." Jesus - John 3:19-20

GLADD, GLSEN, Act-up, NAMBLA, Eagle, Lambda, NGTLF, ACLU, Liberals, and the popular Media hate the Light, which reveals their deeds, and is why they have devised a deceptive agenda using our courts and public schools, to undermine the will of the majority into forcing that which "goes against nature" as being "normal."
