Reason # 12
Compassionate Society Should Discourage Deadly Homosexual
by Gary Glenn State Director,
AFA of Michigan
March 19, 2001
Society imposes significant
social and legal restrictions on -- and spends millions of dollars urging
Americans, particularly children, to avoid -- life-threatening behavioral
choices such as smoking, drug abuse, and drunk driving.
This rational, logical, common
sense commitment to protecting our children from life-threatening activity is
irrationally discarded, however, concerning the deadly practice of homosexual
behavior. With the ready compliance of negligently pandering, enabling
politicians and bureaucrats -- particularly in public schools -- homosexual
activists are dead set on teaching our children "it's O.K. to be gay."
The N.E. Journal of Medicine
reports that men who smoke risk cutting 7.3 years off their lives.
University's International Journal of Epidemiology
reports: "Life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20
years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality continues, we
estimate that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 will not
reach their 65th birthday." Judging by the number of years at risk, homosexual
activity is up to three times deadlier than smoking.
Society irrationally nonetheless
condemns and restricts the lesser threat, while contemplating laws to protect
and force acceptance of the greater. The Boy Scouts are viciously attacked for
daring to stand firm to protect youngsters from exposure to such deadly
behavior. Paid homosexual activists are invited into our classrooms -- as young
as first grade, one Detroit activist boasts - to offer our kids an early death
by teaching them "How to be Gay."
Between the Lines,
"gay" newspaper, reports the
risk of anal cancer "soars" by nearly 4,000% for men who have sex with men. "The
rate doubles again for those who are HIV positive." Between the Lines admits
there's no such thing as "safe sex" to prevent this "soaring" cancer risk: "A
condom offers only limited protection."
Institute of Sexual Health
reports [Executive Summary,
"Health Implications Associated
with Homosexuality," 1999]:
- "Homosexual men are at
significantly increased risk of HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, anal cancer, gonorrhea and
gastrointestinal infections as a result of their sexual practices."
- "Women who have sex with women are at significantly increased risk of
bacterial vaginosis, breast cancer and ovarian cancer than are heterosexual
- "Domestic violence is...probably more common among homosexuals than among
- "Significantly higher percentages of homosexual men and women abuse drugs,
alcohol and tobacco than do heterosexuals."
The Advocate, a "national gay and
lesbian newsmagazine," concurs that "lesbians are at higher risk of breast,
cervical, and ovarian cancer."
As with smoking, homosexual
behavior's "second hand" effects threaten public health.
The Centers for
Disease Control & Prevention
report that men who engage in homosexual behavior are 860% more likely to
contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD), increasing up to 500% their risk
of contracting HIV/AIDS. Men who have sex with men "have large numbers of
anonymous partners, which can result in rapid, extensive transmission of STDs,"
the CDC warns. "Control of STDs is a central component of HIV infection
prevention in the United States; resurgence of bacterial STD threatens national
HIV infection prevention efforts."
reports that men who have sex with men are 320% more likely than heterosexuals
to have unprotected sex without telling their partners they're HIV-positive.
reported that while "'gay men of all ages remain at an alarming risk,' a CDC
spokesman told a news conference," another CDC study "confirms that young
bisexual men are a 'bridge' for HIV transmission to women."
Thus, individuals who choose to
engage in homosexual behavior threaten not only their own lives, but the lives
of the general population.
If we truly care about persons
ensnared in the homosexual lifestyle, and others their high-risk behavior
threatens, should society play the role of "enabler" and tell them it's only
"natural" to continue their self-destructive activity?
Certainly not. True compassion for our fellow man requires us instead to
discourage such life-threatening choices, to firmly stand and defend our
society, our families and children from political activists aggressively
demanding we normalize, legitimize, promote, and protect homosexual behavior,
despite its deadly threat to personal and public health.
That's how we'd react to anyone we
care about, who's convinced themselves -- or tells our kids -- that it's O.K. to
smoke, do drugs, drive drunk, or play Russian Roulette.
