Letter to Virginia Delegates

Greetings, Virginia Delegates,
        I see from the Washington Times that Delegate Richard Black is proposing a bill to inhibit homosexual persons from adopting children.   

       Attached is a pdf file which gives the only strategy I know of for shedding light on the homosexual issue with reasonable speed.  The longer we wait, the more people are going to be hurt and broken, including especially our children in sadly corrupted public schools.  The American public is being persuaded to buy a "pig in a poke" (Scottish for bag), unseen and unexamined.  And it is our own fault, but that can be remedied.  The public policy conflict is not about "love" or "compassion" (with which almost all persons agree), it is solely and totally the specific sexual behaviors in which homosexual persons engage.  Yet that issue has never been openly and publicly discussed.  The reasons homosexual behavior has not been discussed are precisely the same reasons why it should never have public approval and acceptance. 

        Skip Venable is a delegate to the Delaware legislature.  I met him a few years ago when I did a seminar on the homosexual issues in Delaware.  Recently we had more contact because he is confronting another of the inevitable pro-homosexual bills which routinely now emerge in almost every legislature.  Skip has adapted my strategy for his own use and is passing it out to his fellow legislators. 
        My article is attached.  I have put Skip's here in the text below.  Feel free to adapt any or all of these to your own use.  I believe that the only way to turn this confusion around is to gracefully force those supporting the homosexual lifestyle to publicly defend the real object of their legislation, the specific homosoexual behaviors.  Simple honesty demands that we get the real issues into the light.  We need to keep telling them that they are asking the public to buy a pig in a poke, and that we rightly ask them to take the pig out so we can see it and give an honest answer as to whether we want to buy it or  not.   That "pig in a poke" phrase is a memorable one and worth repeating. 

        If you want further details on how to bring reason to the discussion (e.g., evidence regarding genetic causation, etc.), go to ..\..\..\..\EM\ShpMl\WinSxWrs.htm or to http://theroadtoemmaus.org/RdLb/22SxSo/BroSx/Html/ShrtEvid.htm for a summary of the evidence.
        You can read my bio at http://theroadtoemmaus.org/EM/EFox.htm  If I can be of further help, please contact me.

What rights are we really protecting?
A pig in a poke?

Homosexual activists have successfully framed the debate as a matter of civil rights, privacy, and victimhood. Homosexual persons avoid talking about their specific behavior because it is so unhealthy and destructive. Their political supporters are either so ill informed about homosexuality or so compromised by the homosexual political lobby that they refuse to confront homosexual persons with the facts and the consequences of their destructive behavior.

Homosexuality is a behavior. What behavior are they asking to be endorsed and protected? Once it is mandated by law, it will be taught in the schools as an acceptable alternative lifestyle. Is it really an acceptable alternative lifestyle?

Studies from both the anti-gay and pro-gay sides of homosexual research focus on the same behaviors with reasonably similar figures as to what percentages of homosexual persons engage in them. The following figures are taken from one of the largest studies on this subject, The Gay Report by Karla Jay and Allen Young.

About 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. A New England Journal of Medicine study indicates that the average active homosexual male ingests the fecal material of 23 different men each year (largely from rimming). Homosexual persons on average fellated 106 different men per year, swallowed 50 of the seminal ejaculations, and had 72 penile penetrations of the anus. (Type “homosexual” along with any of the above described behaviors into the Google search engine to corroborate how widespread these practices are.) (Editor’s note: Many of these activities are identified in a Safer Sex brochure produced cooperatively between the Delaware Lesbian Gay Health Association and the Delaware Division of Public Health and was available for distribution in public schools as early as 1993.)

Homosexual behavior: the medical, psychological, and sociological consequences.

Medically, consequences are so devastating that the average practicing homosexual loses from 25% to 40% of his/her lifespan, typically not living beyond 50 in a culture where the average lifespan is well into the 70’s. Sexually transmitted diseases commonly contracted from homosexual behavior include gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis A and B, anal cancer, amoebic “gay” bowel disease and herpes. Even though homosexuals comprise approximately 3% of the population, they make up roughly 50% of the HIV/AIDS cases. Due to their unsafe health practices, homosexual persons are not permitted to donate blood at local blood banks.

Psychologically, evidence shows homosexual behavior to be compulsive and addictive. Homosexual persons continue in their high-risk sexual behavior in spite of its risks and dangers. “Gay men use substances at a higher rate than the general population, and not just in larger communities such as New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. These include a number of substances ranging from amyl nitrate (‘poppers’), to marijuana, Ecstasy, and amphetamines.” (Anne Petrov, Science Editor, www.365Gay.com)

Sociologically, homosexual persons seek to eliminate basic moral traditions by changing marriage laws, child sexual consent laws, pro-gay curricula in schools and requiring religious organizations to employ homosexuals. This is demonstrated in recent headlines in World Net Daily: “Law forces churches to hire homosexuals--New Illinois measure makes ‘gay rights’ more important than religious freedoms” (1-22-2005); “Complaint demands ’pro-gay’ studies for kids” (1-25-2005).

Homosexuality ignores the moral law. Martin Luther King in quoting Thomas Aquinas said, “A just law squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law…is out of harmony with the moral law.” HB 99 is such an unjust law; it grants protection to people based on their participation in unhealthy and irresponsible behavior that is prohibited by God’s law. When the law disregards the Biblical moral standard, it has no argument against pedophilia, bestiality, or polygamy being protected under “sexual orientation”.

Honest public policy should seek to protect the public’s health and safety, not increase health risks by protecting high-risk behavior. Should school children be taught that homosexual behavior is an acceptable alternative lifestyle? Traditionally, legislators have enacted legislation to restrict and discourage behavior detrimental to individuals and communities, i.e., drug laws, alcohol abuse laws, smoking laws, driving laws, etc. Their policies regarding sexual orientation should reflect that same concern for public health and safety. In order to be consistent, legislators should discourage homosexual behavior via counseling and education programs that warn of the dangers. Granting protected status to those who practice homosexual behavior is the same as state approval of the behavior and an open invitation for others to participate.
