(ThyBlackMan.com) Other Than The Fact That It’s Being Forced Down Our Throats…

Finally homosexuality and lesbianism has infected the African-American community. Is this hate speech? No, it is speaking out against what is wrong and what is being shoved down our throats. Homosexuality is wrong on so many levels that it damages the fabric of society and the foundation of the family. Now I know you are expecting me to start spouting off Bible verses, but the spiritual wrong involved is only one of many reasons and categories, so let’s start elsewhere.

Homosexuality and lesbianism are not natural. They are unnatural and therefore they are what is against nature. Look at the numbers and you can see the facts for yourself. If you believe in evolution (or creation), you must acknowledge there is an apparent order to all things. When that order is broken or deviated from, things go wrong and over the long term, more harm is done than good. Homosexuality is biologically wrong because it is unproductive. We were given the tools to procreate and neither homosexuality nor lesbianism can accomplish this. That means over time the numbers of any species will be severely reduced and homosexuality will become a nail in the coffin of self-extinction. You might say they can reproduce by artificial means, but you would be proving my point that a man and woman are needed biologically. And that which is artificial is not real.

Biologically homosexuality and lesbianism are wrong because we are not built for such deviations. There is no way for a child to be born without the sperm of the man and the egg of the woman. And the process of conception anatomically matches the parts we use to bring it about. Two men having the same parts cannot do it, nor can two women. Coincidence? No.

Homosexuality is wrong because it is a perversion that takes a person down a path to other perversions. Thus just as weed is a “gateway drug”, homosexuality and lesbianism are “gateway behaviors”. Once a person loses his or her morals, values and social standards, it is just a matter of time before anything goes. That is why our country made laws against having sex with minors (pedophilia), dead people (necrophilia), immediate family members (incest) and animals (bestiality). And today there are homosexuals, bisexuals, lesbians, metrosexuals, sapiosexuals, transsexuals and transgenders. There are threesomes, sex parties and orgies. Prostitution is at an all-time high and they are getting younger and younger. There is wife swapping and polyamory (open relationships), all of which waste away monogamy and further confuse our youth.

Here is another anomaly. What about the lesbian women who want a woman who walks, talks, dresses and acts like a man? Is she confused about roles or what? My point here is that even when homosexual men and lesbian women are flaming and out of the closet, a great many of them display the inherent need for the opposite sex, even if it’s in the form of a perverted substitute. The perversion has to stop. Just because you want to do it, that does not mean you should. Your conscience is supposed to be a barrier to block you from acting on some of the things that come to mind so wake up. I am attracted to the sack of money in the armored truck at the bank, but I don’t run up and steal it.2015-homosexuality

Homosexuality and lesbianism are medically dangerous. The spread of AIDS was directly related to homosexuality and promiscuous bisexuality made it spread into the heterosexual population. The nature of “sex” between two females also often involves behaviors that expose them to secretions, other diseases and fluids much more overall than men are exposed to. I don’t want to get too graphic so ask a Gynecologist. The mother and father of a child serve a unique purpose in that child’s life that cannot be effectively substituted to get the same results. Fact: When the father is not around, children have a shortage of dopamine in the brain (the motivator chemical). A woman acting and dressing like a man cannot produce this. Fact: Likewise when the mother is not around, the children lack the production of seratonin. And two men cannot produce this type of chemically balanced reaction.

Homosexuality and lesbianism are sometimes the results of molestation. Many people who end up homosexual or lesbian have been molested as children. When a child is molested or raped, it damages his or her psyche and/or spirit. Such awful acts weaken his or her inhibitions, thus making the child more receptive to the act sooner or later. It is then no longer foreign or taboo to them. This is similar to when a young girl is raped and ends up as a prostitute when she is older. Her inhibitions are broken and the wall between right and wrong is blurred then torn down. There are patterns that emerge and research has also proven this Eddie Long.

Sociologically, homosexuality is often the result of something gone wrong in the home. Homosexuality and lesbianism are sometimes the result of rebellion, peer pressure or lack of role models. Rebellion in the sense that a young person wants to bump heads with the status quo, similarly to the preacher’s kid might ironically end up as wild and “out there”. As for peer pressure, young people do what they see their friends do. They are curious and looking for an identity. They find identity in the examples they see around them, especially when they lack strong parental role models. In so many African—American homes today where there is no father present or involved, the young man is left to find his role models where ever he can. Who is there to teach him what and how a man should be? Nobody. Similarly, with young girls, the absent father leaves her with no standard of who she should be with and how she must demand to be treated. In both cases a kind of perverted “anything goes” mentality develops. Some fathers, some mothers and some of the system this country has created are at fault.

Homosexuality or lesbianism sometimes develops as a result of bad experiences with the opposite sex. If a 5 year-old girl is raped by a 40 year old man, she may in fact develop a hatred for men, especially if she was raped by a man she trusted. Ironically, if a boy is sexually assaulted by a man, he is likely to become a homosexual or bisexual. In these cases, the Psychological impacts of a damaged psyche result in homosexuality or lesbianism. Picture this, a heterosexual woman with two daughters has awful luck finding a good man. She ends up dating abusive men, unfaithful men, lazy men and users. Each week she talks to her female friends on the phone about the loneliness, the sadness and the pain. Each week her daughters overhear the phone calls, see the tears and feel the depression. What do you think her daughters think of men? Subconsciously her daughters grow to hate and distrust men, equating men with sadness, sorrow and pain. So they push back from relationships with men and they don’t even understand why. They are likely candidates for lesbianism.

Our country as a whole does not accept homosexuality and lesbianism. How can it when it has been said that our country has biblical foundations? The President is supposed to uphold the Constitution and represent the wishes of the people. President Bush signed the “In Defense Of Marriage Act” which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman. President Clinton did the same. But then President Obama, who plays to ANY crowd, went against both past Presidents and the overall majority wishes of the people. Will a man sell his soul or sear his conscious to get votes and to be politically correct? Apparently so. Now homosexuality and lesbianism are being shoved down our throats and taught to our kids in school like a religion. When those of us who know it’s wrong are willing to speak out, we are made to look like the bad guys. But wrong is wrong and people better wake up.

God did not make people homosexual or lesbian. That is the biggest load of scapegoating bullcrap I have ever heard. It would make no sense for God to create man and woman to procreate, tell them to be fruitful and multiply then make a bunch of people who wanted same sex partners. It would be God working against Himself and the Bible says a house divided against itself cannot stand. Plus the Bible has a lot to say against homosexuality and none of it is good. Yet part of our society either says God is wrong or implies that God is at fault. But let’s be honest. People just want to do whatever they want, whatever feels good and what they see other people doing. See Romans 1:26-27(vile, unnatural), I Cor 6:9-11 (Effeminate, catamites or young boys used as lovers for older men), Leviticus 18:22, 20:13 and Jude 1:7 (strange flesh).

       Nobody is born a homosexual or lesbian. No infant boy is lying there in a crib at 2 months old thinking about having sex with a man. He is not thinking about sex at all, with anybody. Neither is the infant female. Who you have sex with is a choice, unless you are raped, molested or drugged. People need to accept the responsibility of their choices. But so many find it easier to blame God because it eases their conscience and takes the guilt off their heads about making a perverted decision they inherently know to be wrong. Stable heterosexuals do not walk around announcing that we are “flaming heterosexuals” and neither should homosexuals. If what you do in your bedroom is your business, why feel the need to show it flamboyantly on the streets? Why make the privacy of who you have sex with into a public issue? Why try to force us to accept it as normal when we don’t even know you? As the rights of homosexuals and lesbians grow, the rights of heterosexuals quietly diminish. WAKE UP!

I submit to you that a great many people who are homosexuals or lesbians know it’s wrong for many reasons. They know it’s not the norm. They know their parents did not bring them up that way. I also say this because the fact that they call it something other than what it is allows for a form of denial. Homosexuals and lesbians call themselves “gay”. Why when the word “gay” does not mean that at all by original etymological and denotative definition. Why not call yourself what you are, unless you know the actual terms ring a bell inside you that it is wrong? Here is an analogy. Many women who have abortions find it easier for their conscience to say they are aborting a fetus than to say they are killing their unborn child. This play on words eases the consciences of those who cannot face the truth about what they are doing.

For those of you who say “don’t judge”, God has already judged homosexuality as wrong. The Bible, the Quran (Surah 7:80-84, 26:165-166, 4:16), the Hadith (Abu Dawud 4448, Bukhari 72:774) and most religions are clear on this. Neither I nor this article prescribe or suggest a governmental punishment or penalty for homosexuality, but it is interesting to know for purposes of research that in Saudi Arabia, Iran and several other Muslim countries, the death penalty is administered for homosexuality. But before some of you try to take this paragraph and run with it as if it’s hate speech, know that it is freedom of speech, know that it is factual research and know that despising homosexual or lesbian behavior does not advocate that anyone hate the person, but rather the act, the behavior and the lifestyle. Hating an individual is a bad thing no matter where it’s found, who it comes from or who it is shown towards.

For those of you who say “just let everybody do their own thing as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone”, there is a problem. Homosexuality hurts the social order of the African-American community (roles in family identity), it violates divine order (procreation) and it violates cosmic order (genetically, biologically, biochemically). Furthermore, we cannot all just do as we please. You cannot drive as fast as you want to with YOUR car. You cannot commit suicide with YOUR body. You cannot beat YOUR children with a steel pole. You cannot have sex in a public park or in the mall. You cannot have sex with a dead person, a child or an immediate family relative. All of these behaviors are regulated by our society and they are rules for you, me, our bodies, how we interact with others and the things that belong to us.

Our numbers in the African-American community are dropping, partly because of disease, incarceration, poverty, crime, abortion and yes because of homosexuality and lesbianism. We need more young people who can carry us into the future with a strong sense of identity and clearly defined roles. We need two parent households with a mother and a father. Statistics have proven that. As a family and relationship life coach, mediator and counselor, I have interviewed thousands of people who verify the painful truths of this article. Nobody should hate anybody and I do not say we should hate homosexuals or lesbians. All of them are not bad, but all of them are lost. Just as all heterosexuals are not good and many heterosexuals are lost in other areas. We should work to love everyone, get along with everyone and help everyone. But that does not mean we have to accept their behavior. And for all of you who are homosexual or lesbian, if your parents thought like you do, you would not be here to read this.

    Homosexuality and lesbianism are not natural..

    *A certain species of monkeys does it

    Many women who have abortions find it easier for their conscience to say they are aborting a fetus than to say they are killing their unborn child.

    *Comparing consensutial sex to killing is crazy
    *In the Bible/Quaran there is a moment in the 2nd tri-mester where the “soul” comes in. (To boot, science says the fetus isn’t even sentient)

    Homosexuality is wrong because it is a perversion that takes a person down a path to other perversions

    *Sure except for young prostitution how are these perversions bad? But killing the Caanites was correct because some “God” told the military leaders to do so.

    Nobody is born a homosexual or lesbian. No infant boy is lying there in a crib at 2 months old thinking about having sex with a man

    *No the 2 month old is thinking about having sex with a woman! -_- Homosexuality is a mental illness/mutation of the brain. Too many children show early signs who HAVENT been messed with or *coached* The brain has THOUSANDS of mutations. Maybe the person with schizophrenia is “faking it”.

    Homosexuality hurts the social order of the African-American community

    * Oh out of all our issues this is clearly on the top (no pun intended lol)

    Dont bother deleting my comments i cut and pasted all of them. I will only come back more determined to publicly expose your arrogance or ignorance(you chose)

    Well well, we meet again. After reading the first couple paragraphs of this steaming pile of doo doo, i decided to make it my personal goal to contact the person in charged of hiring you(assuming your a free-lanced journalist) and show them that not only is these type of article(as a english major, abit of me died when i typed article) is not only tarnishing the image of this website, its very obvious that educated individuals as well as level minded people largely disagree and very publicly oppose your publications. By the way your arrogance is very humoring. I might just go back on getting you fired just to get a kick out of your out-dated close mindedness. Shame on you sir, granted;i look forward for your next article.

    This is sad. You would think a people who have been subjected to as much hate as we have would be the last people lining up to hate on another group. The irony of using the same bible as our slavemasters o justify it is even sadder. 20 years ago, a good christian was very likely to believe it was “God’s will” for us to be locked up in chains. the bible list many things as abominations. to focus on homosexuality is absurd. As someone pointed out, this stuff is the sort of pseudoscience hate groups like to tell their ignorant members. For those who bothered to look at those cherry picked stats, take the time and look at some of the figures on black people and you could just as easily (as white supremacist sites are fond of doing) cherry pick those that make black people look bad.

    FACTS / FACTS / FACTS and HOMOSEXUALITY IS WRONG

    Comparing the Lifestyles of Homosexual Couples to Married Couples
    By Timothy J. Dailey, Ph. D. Senior Fellow, Center for Marriage and Family Studies

    “Married and Gay Couples Not All that Different,” proclaimed the headline of a news article portraying homosexual households as remarkably similar to married couples. “We’re the couple next door,” claimed one partnered homosexual. “We have a dog and a cat. I drive a Volvo. I’m boring.”[1] Such down-home portrayals of homosexual couples are meant to provoke the question: Since gay couples really differ only in that both partners are of the same sex, what rational basis exists for denying them full marriage rights?

    Are homosexual households, as the article suggests, simply another variant of human relationships that should be considered, along with marriage, as “part of mainstream American society”?

    On the contrary, the evidence indicates that “committed” homosexual relationships are radically different from married couples in several key respects:

    relationship duration
    monogamy vs. promiscuity
    relationship commitment
    number of children being raised
    health risks
    rates of intimate partner violence
    Finally, this paper will present evidence from gay activists themselves indicating that behind the push for gay marriage lies a political agenda to radically change the institution of marriage itself.

    RELATIONSHIP DURATION
    Gay activists often point to high divorce rates and claim that married couples fare little better than homosexuals with regard to the duration of their relationships. The research, however, indicates that male homosexual relationships last only a fraction of the length of most marriages.

    Married Couples

    A 2001 National Center for Health Statistics study on marriage and divorce statistics reported that 66 percent of first marriages last ten years or longer, with fifty percent lasting twenty years or longer.[2]

    Source: National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2001)

    A 2002 U.S. Census Bureau study reported similar results, with 70.7 percent of women married between 1970 and 1974 reaching their tenth anniversary and 57.7 percent staying married for twenty years or longer.[3]

    Source: Current Population Reports: U.S. Census Bureau (2002)

    Male Homosexual Relationships

    The 2003-2004 Gay/Lesbian Consumer Online Census surveyed the lifestyles of 7,862 homosexuals. Of those involved in a “current relationship,” only 15 percent describe their current relationship as having lasted twelve years or longer, with five percent lasting more than twenty years.[4] While this “snapshot in time” is not an absolute predictor of the length of homosexual relationships, it does indicate that few homosexual relationships achieve the longevity common in marriages.

    Source: 2003-2004 Gay/Lesbian Consumer Online Census

    In The Sexual Organization of the City, University of Chicago sociologist Edward Laumann argues that “typical gay city inhabitants spend most of their adult lives in ‘transactional’ relationships, or short-term commitments of less than six months.”[5]

    A study of homosexual men in the Netherlands published in the journal AIDS found that the “duration of steady partnerships” was 1.5 years.[6]

    In his study of male homosexuality in Western Sexuality: Practice and Precept in Past and Present Times, Pollak found that “few homosexual relationships last longer than two years, with many men reporting hundreds of lifetime partners.”[7]

    In Male and Female Homosexuality, Saghir and Robins found that the average male homosexual live-in relationship lasts between two and three years.[8]

    MONOGAMY VS. PROMISCUITY: SEXUAL PARTNERS OUTSIDE OF THE RELATIONSHIP
    Lest anyone suffer the illusion that any equivalency between the sexual practices of homosexual relationships and traditional marriage exists, the statistics regarding sexual fidelity within marriage are revealing:

    Married couples

    A nationally representative survey of 884 men and 1,288 women published in the Journal of Sex Research found that 77 percent of married men and 88 percent of married women had remained faithful to their marriage vows.[9]

    A 1997 national survey appearing in The Social Organization of Sexuality: Sexual Practices in the United States found that 75 percent of husbands and 85 percent of wives never had sexual relations outside of marriage.[10]

    A telephone survey conducted for Parade magazine of 1,049 adults selected to represent the demographic characteristics of the United States found that 81 percent of married men and 85 percent of married women reported that they had never violated their marriage vows.[11]

    Male Homosexuals

    Research indicates that the average male homosexual has hundreds of sex partners in his lifetime:

    The Dutch study of partnered homosexuals, which was published in the journal AIDS, found that men with a steady partner had an average of eight sexual partners per year.[12]

    Bell and Weinberg, in their classic study of male and female homosexuality, found that 43 percent of white male homosexuals had sex with 500 or more partners, with 28 percent having one thousand or more sex partners.[13]

    In their study of the sexual profiles of 2,583 older homosexuals published in the Journal of Sex Research, Paul Van de Ven et al. found that “the modal range for number of sexual partners ever [of homosexuals] was 101-500.” In addition, 10.2 percent to 15.7 percent had between 501 and 1,000 partners. A further 10.2 percent to 15.7 percent reported having had more than one thousand lifetime sexual partners.[14]

    A survey conducted by the homosexual magazine Genre found that 24 percent of the respondents said they had had more than one hundred sexual partners in their lifetime. The magazine noted that several respondents suggested including a category of those who had more than one thousand sexual partners.[15]

    “Commitment” in Male Homosexual Couples

    Even in those homosexual relationships in which the partners consider themselves to be in a committed relationship, the meaning of “committed” or “monogamous” typically means something radically different than in heterosexual marriage.

    A Canadian study of homosexual men who had been in committed relationships lasting longer than one year found that only 25 percent of those interviewed reported being monogamous.” According to study author Barry Adam, “Gay culture allows men to explore different…forms of relationships besides the monogamy coveted by heterosexuals.”[16]

    The Handbook of Family Diversity reported a study in which “many self-described ‘monogamous’ couples reported an average of three to five partners in the past year. Blasband and Peplau (1985) observed a similar pattern.”[17]

    In The Male Couple, authors David P. McWhirter and Andrew M. Mattison reported that, in a study of 156 males in homosexual relationships lasting from one to thirty-seven years:

    Only seven couples have a totally exclusive sexual relationship, and these men all have been together for less than five years. Stated another way, all couples with a relationship lasting more than five years have incorporated some provision for outside sexual activity in their relationships.[18]
    As the following chart shows, the extremely low rate of sexual fidelity among homosexual men dramatically contrasts with the high rate of fidelity among married heterosexuals.

    Sources:Laumann, The Social Organization of Sexuality, 216; McWhirter and Mattison, The Male Couple: How Relationships Develop (1984): 252-253; Wiederman, “Extramarital Sex,” 170.

    According to McWhirter and Mattison, most homosexual men understood sexual relations outside the relationship to be the norm and viewed adopting monogamous standards as an act of oppression.

    In their Journal of Sex Research study of the sexual practices of older homosexual men, Paul Van de Ven et al. found that only 2.7 percent of older homosexuals had only one sexual partner in their lifetime.[19]

    Brad Hayton provides insight into the attitudes of many homosexuals towards commitment and marriage:

    Homosexuals…are taught by example and belief that marital relationships are transitory and mostly sexual in nature. Sexual relationships are primarily for pleasure rather than procreation. And they are taught that monogamy in a marriage is not the norm [and] should be discouraged if one wants a good “marital” relationship.[20]
    While the rate of fidelity within marriage cited by these studies remains far from ideal, there is a significant difference between the negligible lifetime fidelity rate cited for homosexuals and the 75 to 90 percent cited for married couples. This indicates that even “committed” homosexual relationships display a fundamental incapacity for the faithfulness and commitment that is axiomatic to the institution of marriage.

    LEVEL OF COMMITMENT IN HOMOSEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS
    If homosexuals and lesbians truly desired the same kind of commitment signified by marriage, then one would expect them to take advantage of the opportunity to enter into civil unions or registered partnerships, which grant them legal recognition as well as the legal rights of marriage. However, surprisingly few homosexuals and lesbians choose to enter into such legally recognized unions where such arrangements are available, indicating that such couples do not share the same view of commitment as typified by married couples.

    Vermont

    In April 2000, the governor of the state of Vermont signed a law instituting civil unions for homosexuals. The bill conferred 300 privileges and rights enjoyed by married couples upon same-sex partners who register their relationship with the town clerk and have their union solemnized by a member of the clergy or the justice of the peace.

    Estimating the homosexual and lesbian population of Vermont: The number of homosexuals and lesbians in the state of Vermont may be estimated based on national studies. Contrary to the widely promulgated but inaccurate claims that up to ten percent of the population is homosexual, research indicates that homosexuals comprise one to three percent of the population. For example, a recent study in Demography relying upon three large data sets–the General Social Survey, the National Health and Social Life Survey, and the U.S. Census–estimated the number of exclusive male homosexuals in the general population to be 2.5 percent and the number of exclusive lesbians to be 1.4 percent.[21]

    According to the 2000 Census, the adult population of Vermont is 461,304.[22] Based on the Demography study, a reasonable estimate of the number of homosexuals and lesbians in Vermont would be approximately 5,600 (2.5 percent of the adult male population) for male homosexuals, and approximately 3,300 (1.4 percent of the adult female population) for lesbians, for a total of approximately 8,900 homosexuals and lesbians. [Note: these are only rough approximations for purposes of statistical comparison.]

    Number of homosexuals and lesbians in Vermont who have entered into civil unions: USA Today reports that, as of January 2004, only 936 homosexual or lesbian couples (for a total of 1,872 individuals) have entered into civil unions.[23] This indicates that only about 21 percent of the estimated homosexual and lesbian population of Vermont has entered into civil unions. Put another way, 79 percent of homosexuals and lesbians in Vermont choose not to enter into civil unions.

    By contrast, in Vermont, heterosexual married couples outnumber cohabiting couples by a margin of 7 to 1, indicating a much higher level of desire on the part of heterosexual couples to legalize their relationships.[24]

    For purposes of comparison it may be useful to examine two countries that have granted special rights to homosexuals, including marriage-like civil unions, which grant gays and lesbians virtually all of the rights of marriage.

    Sweden

    In 1995 Sweden passed the Registered Partnership Act which created civil unions for homosexual couples. In 2003 that law was amended to give registered homosexual couples the same right to adopt or have legal custody of children as married couples. The percentage of homosexual or lesbians in Sweden that enter into civil unions may be estimated as fo llows:

    Estimated homosexual and lesbian population of Sweden: Extrapolating from the Demography estimates in the U.S., a similar percentage of the homosexual and lesbian population of Sweden would be approximately 140,000 (2.5 percent of the adult male population of 3,531,554, and 1.4 percent of the adult female population of 3,679,317).[25]

    Number of homosexuals and lesbians in Sweden who have registered their unions: The number of registered same-sex unions in Sweden is reported to be about 1,500 (for a total of 3,000 individuals) out of the estimated homosexual and lesbian population of 140,000.[26] This indicates that only about two percent of Swedish homosexuals and lesbians choose to enter into legally recognized unions. Put another way, about 98 percent of Swedish homosexuals and lesbians do not officially register as same-sex couples.

    The Netherlands

    A landmark law allowing same-sex “marriage” was instituted in the Netherlands on March 31, 2001, with a highly publicized communal ceremony that included two lesbian “brides” and six homosexual “grooms.” The Netherlands instituted a “registered partnership” law in 1998 that accorded legal status to homosexual relationships similar to that of marriage. The new law, which explicitly recognizes same-sex matrimony, is restricted to Dutch nationals. However, as the following analysis shows, the percentage of homosexuals and lesbians that have entered into marriage-like civil unions is very low.

    Estimated homosexual and lesbian population of the Netherlands: Extrapolating from demographic figures for homosexuals and lesbians in the U.S., a similar percentage for the Netherlands would be 242,000 (2.5 percent of the adult male population of 6,161,662, and 1.4 percent of the adult female population of 6,311,338).[27]

    Number of Dutch homosexuals and lesbians who have registered their unions: A news report by the Gay Financial Network predicted that “some 10,000 gay couples could be married” in the first year following the legalization of gay “marriage” in the Netherlands. In reality, far fewer chose to solemnize their relationships. The Office of Legislative Research released a report in October 2002 stating: “The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs reports that 3,383 of the 121,776 marriages licensed between April 1, 2001, and June 30, 2002, involved people of the same sex.”[28]

    Thus, as of October 2002, only 2.8 percent, or 6,766 individuals (3,383 licenses) out of an estimated homosexual and lesbian population of 242,000, have registered their unions as “married.”

    Sources:U.S. Census Bureau, Married-Couple and Unmarried-Partner Households: 2000, 2; Black, “Demographics,” 141; U.S. Census Bureau Census 2000 Summary File 1; Bayles, “Vermont’s Gay Civil Unions,” 1; Census 2000 Special Reports, 4; Shane, “Many Swedes Say ‘I Don’t,'” 1; “ORL Backgrounder,” 1.

    The much lower rates of homosexual and lesbian civil “marriages” in Sweden and the Netherlands must be viewed in the light of much lower marriage rates in both of those countries, a trend that the introduction of gay “marriage” in the 1990s has not reversed. Thus, as writer Stanley Kurtz argues, the granting of marriage rights to homosexuals and lesbians “has further undermined the institution” of marriage: “Scandinavian gay marriage has driven home the message that marriage itself is outdated, and that virtually any family form, including out-of-wedlock parenthood, is acceptable.”[29]

    Conclusion: Level of Relationship Commitment Among Homosexuals

    Data from Vermont, Sweden, and the Netherlands reveal that only a small percentage of homosexuals and lesbians identify themselves as being in a committed relationship, with even fewer taking advantage of civil unions or, in the case of the Netherlands, of same-sex “marriage.” This indicates that even in the most “gay friendly” localities, the vast majority of homosexuals and lesbians display little inclination for the kind of lifelong, committed relationships that they purport to desire to enter.

    NUMBER OF CHILDREN BEING RAISED IN HOMOSEXUAL HOUSEHOLDS
    Inflated Statistics for Homosexual Households in the United States

    Claims regarding the numbers of children being raised in homosexual and lesbian households vary widely and are often unsubstantiated. According to a study on homosexual parenting in the American Sociological Review, researchers have given figures “of uncertain origin, depicting a range of…6 to 14 million children of gay or lesbian parents in the United States.”[30]

    According to the study’s authors, Judith Stacey and Timothy J. Biblarz, the higher estimates are based upon “classifying as a lesbigay [sic] parent anyone who reports that even the idea of homoerotic sex is appealing.”[31] Instead, the authors favor a figure of about one million, which “derives from the narrower…definition of a lesbigay parent as one who self-identifies as such.”[32]

    However, even the lower figure of one million children being raised in gay and lesbian households does not stand up to statistical analysis.

    The U.S. Census Bureau reports that there are 594,391 same-sex unmarried partner households in the United States (301,026 male homosexual households and 293,365 lesbian households).[33] This indicates that only one percent of the total of 59,969,000 households contain same-sex partners. Assuming the Stacey/Biblarz estimate that one million children have a homosexual or lesbian parent, this would mean that, on average, every homosexual household has at least one child.[34]

    However, the 2000 Census figures show that only 33 percent (or 96,810) of female same-sex households and 22 percent (or 66,225) of male same-sex households have their own children living with them.[35] These 163,035 same-sex couples (or 326,070 individuals) comprise only 8 percent of the estimated homosexual and lesbian population. Put another way, 92 percent of the estimated adult population of homosexuals and lesbians in the U.S. do not live with children. By comparison, the 2000 Census showed that 46 percent of married couple households have at least one child living in the household.[36] However, this figure underestimates the total number of married couples who have had children, as many older couples have grown children who are no longer living at home.

    *Sources:Black, “Demographics,” 141; Census 2000 Special Reports, 4.

    The Stacey/Biblarz estimates may include children being raised by single homosexuals, some of whom are raising their own biological children conceived in a previous heterosexual relationship. Nevertheless, these calculations indicate how absurdly inflated most of the estimates are concerning the number of children being raised by homosexuals. Far from being the proven success that some claim, homosexual parenting remains very much the exception rather than the rule.

    Implications for Homosexual Parenting

    Gay activists attempt to minimize the differences between homosexual and heterosexual households in order to make homosexuality look as normal as possible. However, as already shown, only a small minority of gay and lesbian households have children. Beyond that, the evidence also indicates that comparatively few homosexuals choose to establish households together–the type of setting that is normally prerequisite for the rearing of children.

    The Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual advocacy organization, claims that the U.S. population of gays and lesbians is 10,456,405, or five percent of the total U.S. population over 18 years of age.[37] However, as we have seen, the best available data supports a lower estimate of 2.5 percent for male homosexuals and 1.4 percent for lesbians.[38] This would lead to a figure of approximately 4,040,000 homosexual men and women in the U.S. population. Thus, only about 30 percent of homosexuals (1,202,418 out of some 4 million) choose to live in a household with a person of the same sex.

    The above indicates that only a small minority of gays and lesbians choose to live in partnered relationships, and furthermore, only a small percentage of partnered homosexual households actually have children. The evidence thus does not support the claim that significant numbers of homosexuals desire to provide a stable home for children.

    HEALTH RISKS
    Even those homosexual relationships that are loosely termed “monogamous” do not necessarily result in healthier behavior. The evidence indicates that homosexual and lesbian relationships are at far greater risk for contracting life-threatening disease compared with married couples:

    The journal AIDS reported that men involved in relationships engaged in anal intercourse and oral-anal intercourse with greater frequency than did those without a steady partner.[39] Anal intercourse has been linked with a host of sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS.

    The exclusivity of the relationship did not diminish the incidence of unhealthy sexual acts, which are commonplace among homosexuals. An English study published in the same issue of AIDS concurred, finding that most “unsafe” sex acts among homosexuals occur in steady relationships.[40]

    A study of steady and casual male homosexual relationships in Amsterdam found that “steady partners contribute to (HIV) incidence more than casual partners. This can mainly be explained by the fact that risky behavior with steady partners is much greater than that with casual partners (30 versus 1.5 UAI [unprotected anal intercourse] acts annually).”[41]

    These findings confirmed an earlier study by the Dutch Department of Health and Environment, which found that 67 percent of HIV-positive men aged 30 and younger had been infected by a steady partner. The study concluded: “In recent years, young gay men have become more likely to contract HIV from a steady sexual partner than from a casual one.”[42]

    “Exclusive” Lesbian Relationships Also at Risk

    The assumption that lesbians involved in exclusive sexual relationships are at reduced risk for sexual disease is false:

    The journal Sexually Transmitted Infections concludes: “The risk behavior profile of exclusive WSW (women who have sex with women) was similar to all wsw.”[43] One reason for this is because lesbians “were significantly more likely to report past sexual contact with a homosexual or bisexual man and sexual contact with an IDU (intravenous drug user).”[44]

    Greater Risk for Suicide

    Homosexual and lesbian relationships experience a far greater rate of mental health problems compared to married couples.

    A twins study that examined the relationship between homosexuality and suicide, published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, found that homosexuals with same-sex partners were at greater risk for overall mental health problems and were 6.5 times more likely than their twins to have attempted suicide. The higher rate was not attributable to mental health or substance abuse disorders.[45]

    INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE Lesbian and Homosexual Relationships
    Research indicates very high levels of violence in homosexual and lesbian relationships:

    A study in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence examined conflict and violence in lesbian relationships. The researchers found that 90 percent of the lesbians surveyed had been recipients of one or more acts of verbal aggression from their intimate partners during the year prior to this study, with 31 percent reporting one or more incidents of physical abuse.[46]

    In a survey of 1,099 lesbians, the Journal of Social Service Research found that slightly more than half of the lesbians reported that they had been abused by a female lover/partner. The researchers found that “the most frequently indicated forms of abuse were verbal/emotional/psychological abuse and combined physical-psychological abuse.”[47]

    A study of lesbian couples reported in the Handbook of Family Development and Intervention “indicates that 54 percent had experienced 10 or more abusive incidents, 74 percent had experienced six or more incidents, 60 percent reported a pattern to the abuse, and 71 percent said it grew worse over time.”[48]

    In their book Men Who Beat the Men Who Love Them: Battered Gay Men and Domestic Violence, Island and Letellier postulate that “the incidence of domestic violence among gay men is nearly double that in the heterosexual population.”[49]

    Gay and lesbian vs. other opposite-sex intimate partner relationships

    Surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice confirm that homosexual and lesbian relationships had a far greater incidence of domestic partner violence than opposite-sex relationships including cohabitation or marriage.

    The National Violence against Women Survey, sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, found that “same-sex cohabitants reported significantly more intimate partner violence than did opposite-sex cohabitants. Thirty-nine percent of the same-sex cohabitants reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked by a marital/cohabitating partner at some time in their lifetimes, compared to 21.7 percent of the opposite-sex cohabitants. Among men, the comparable figures are 23.1 percent and 7.4 percent.”[50]

    Marriage vs. Other Types of Intimate Partner Relationships

    A Bureau of Justice Statistics (an agency of the U.S. Department of Justice) report found that married women in traditional families experience the lowest rate of violence compared with women in other types of relationships.[51] Women who were not married to their “intimate partner” (i.e., were cohabiting), experienced a rate of violence four times higher than that of married women (11.3 per thousand vs. 2.6 per thousand). [52]

    Homosexual and Lesbian Couples vs. Married Couples

    When homosexual and lesbian relationships are directly compared with married couples, the difference in the domestic partner violence is pronounced:

    A POLITICAL AGENDA: REDEFINING MARRIAGE
    By their own admission, gay activists are not simply interested in making it possible for homosexuals and lesbians to partake of conventional married life. Rather, they aim to change the essential character of marriage, removing precisely the aspects of fidelity and chastity that promote stability in the relationship and the home:

    Paula Ettelbrick, the former legal director of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, has stated, “Being queer is more than setting up house, sleeping with a person of the same gender, and seeking state approval for doing so….Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex, sexuality, and family, and in the process transforming the very fabric of society.”[53]

    Homosexual writer and activist Michelangelo Signorile speaks approvingly of those who advocate replacing monogamy with sexually “open” relationships:

    For these men the term “monogamy” simply doesn’t necessarily mean sexual exclusivity….The term “open relationship” has for a great many gay men come to have one specific definition: A relationship in which the partners have sex on the outside often, put away their resentment and jealousy, and discuss their outside sex with each other, or share sex partners.[54]
    The views of Signorile and Ettelbrick regarding marriage are widespread in the homosexual community. According to the Mendola Report, a mere 26 percent of homosexuals believe that commitment is most important in a marriage relationship.[55]

    Former homosexual William Aaron explains why even homosexuals involved in “committed” relationships do not practice monogamy:

    In the gay life, fidelity is almost impossible. Since part of the compulsion of homosexuality seems to be a need on the part of the homophile to “absorb” masculinity from his sexual partners, he must be constantly on the lookout for [new partners]. Consequently the most successful homophile “marriages” are those where there is an arrangement between the two to have affairs on the side while maintaining the semblance of permanence in their living arrangement.[56]
    The evidence is overwhelming that homosexual and lesbian “committed” relationships are not the equivalent of marriage. In addition, there is little evidence that homosexuals and lesbians truly desire to commit themselves to the kind of monogamous relationships as signified by marriage. What remains, then, is the disturbing possibility that behind the demands for “gay marriage” lurks an agenda of undermining the very nature of the institution of marriage.

    The Statistics on Homosexuality and its Effects Catholic Apologetics International

    http://www.catholicintl.com/news/news.htm

    Some statistics about the Homosexual lifestyle:

    * One study reports 70% of homosexuals admitting to having sex only one time with over 50% of their partners (3)
    * One study reports that the average homosexual has between 20 and 106 partners per year (6). The average heterosexual has 8 partners in a lifetime
    * Many homosexual sexual encounters occur while drunk, high on drugs, or in an orgy setting (7)
    * Many homosexuals don’t pay heed to warnings of their lifestyles: “Knowledge of health guidelines was quite high, but this knowledge had no relation to sexual behavior” (16)
    * Homosexuals got homosexuality removed from the list of mental illnesses in the early 70s by storming the annual American Psychiatric Association (APA) conference on successive years. “Guerrilla theater tactics and more straight-forward shouting matches characterized their presence” (2). Since homosexuality has been removed from the APA list of mental illnesses, so has pedophilia (except when the adult feels “subjective distress”) (27)
    * Homosexuals account for 3-4% of all gonorrhea cases, 60% of all syphilis cases, and 17% of all hospital admissions (other than for STDs) in the United States (5). They make up only 1-2% of the population
    * Homosexuals live unhealthy lifestyles, and have historically accounted for the bulk of syphilis, gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, the “gay bowel syndrome” (which attacks the intestinal tract), tuberculosis and cytomegalovirus (27)
    * 73% of psychiatrists say homosexuals are less happy than the average person, and of those psychiatrists, 70% say that the unhappiness is NOT due to social stigmatization (13)
    * 25-33% of homosexuals and lesbians are alcoholics (11)
    * Of homosexuals questioned in one study reports that 43% admit to 500 or more partners in a lifetime, 28% admit to 1000 or more in a lifetime, and of these people, 79% say that half of those partners are total strangers, and 70% of those sexual contacts are one night stands (or, as one homosexual admits in the film “The Castro”, one minute stands) (3). Also, it is a favorite past-time of many homosexuals to go to “cruisy areas” and have anonymous sex
    * 78% of homosexuals are affected by STDs (20)
    * Judge John Martaugh, chief magistrate of the New York City Criminal Court has said, “Homosexuals account for half the murders in large cities” (10)
    * Captain William Riddle of the Los Angeles Police says, “30,000 sexually abused children in Los Angeles were victims of homosexuals” (10)
    * 50% of suicides can be attributed to homosexuals (10)
    * Dr. Daniel Capron, a practicing psychiatrist, says, “Homosexuality by definition is not healthy and wholesome. The homosexual person, at best, will be unhappier and more unfulfilled than the sexually normal person” (10). For other psychiatrists who believe that homosexuality is wrong, please see National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality
    * It takes approximately $300,000 to take care of each AIDS victim, so thanks to the promiscuous lifestyle of homosexuals, medical insurance rates have been skyrocketing for all of us(10)
    * Homosexuals were responsible for spreading AIDS in the United States, and then raised up violent groups like Act Up and Ground Zero to complain about it. Even today, homosexuals account for well over 50% of the AIDS cases in the United States, which is quite a large number considering that they account for only 1-2% of the population
    * Homosexuals account for a disproportionate number of hepatitis cases: 70-80% in San Francisco, 29% in Denver, 66% in New York City, 56% in Toronto, 42% in Montreal, and 26% in Melbourne (8)
    * 37% of homosexuals engage in sadomasochism, which accounts for many accidental deaths. In San Francisco, classes were held to teach homosexuals how to not kill their partners during sadomasochism (8)
    * 41% of homosexuals say they have had sex with strangers in public restrooms, 60% say they have had sex with strangers in bathhouses, and 64% of these encounters have involved the use of illegal drugs (8)
    * Depending on the city, 39-59% of homosexuals are infected with intestinal parasites like worms, flukes and amoebae, which is common in filthy third world countries (8)
    * The median age of death of homosexuals is 42 (only 9% live past age 65). This drops to 39 if the cause of death is AIDS. The median age of death of a married heterosexual man is 75 (8)
    * The median age of death of lesbians is 45 (only 24% live past age 65). The median age of death of a married heterosexual woman is 79 (8)
    * Homosexuals are 100 times more likely to be murdered (usually by another homosexual) than the average person, 25 times more likely to commit suicide, and 19 times more likely to die in a traffic accident (8)
    * 21% of lesbians die of murder, suicide or traffic accident, which is at a rate of 534 times higher than the number of white heterosexual females aged 25-44 who die of these things(8)
    * 50% of the calls to a hotline to report “queer bashing” involved domestic violence (i.e., homosexuals beating up other homosexuals) (18)
    * About 50% of the women on death row are lesbians (12).

    Homosexuals prey on children.

    * 33% of homosexuals ADMIT to minor/adult sex (7)
    * There is a notable homosexual group, consisting of thousands of members, known as the North American Man and Boy Love Association ( NAMBLA). This is a child molesting homosexual group whose cry is “SEX BEFORE 8 BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.” This group can be seen marching in most major homosexual parades across the United States
    * Homosexuals commit more than 33% of all reported child molestations in the United States, which, assuming homosexuals make up 2% of the population, means that 1 in 20 homosexuals is a child molestor, while 1 in 490 heterosexuals is a child molestor (19)
    * 73% of all homosexuals have had sex with boys under 19 years of age (9)
    * Many homosexuals admit that they are pedophiles: “The love between men and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality” (22)
    * Because homosexuals can’t reproduce naturally, they resort to recruiting children. Homosexuals can be heard chanting “TEN PERCENT IS NOT ENOUGH, RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT” in their homosexual parades. A group called the “Lesbian Avengers” prides itself on trying to recruit young girls. They print “WE RECRUIT” on their literature. Some other homosexuals aren’t as overt about this, but rather try to infiltrate society and get into positions where they will have access to the malleable minds of young children (e.g., the clergy, teachers, Boy Scout leaders, etc.) (8). See the DC Lesbian Avengers web page, and DC Lesbian Avengers Press Release, where they threaten to recruit little boys and girls. Also, see AFA Action Alert.

    The homosexual agenda.

    * The homosexual agenda includes desensitizing the public: “The first order of business is desensitization of the American public concerning gays and gay rights…..To desensitize the public is to help it view homosexuality with indifference instead of with keen emotion. Ideally, we would have straights register differences in sexual preferences the way they register different tastes for ice cream or sports games….At least in the beginning, we are seeking public desensitization and nothing more. We do not need and cannot expect a full ‘appreciation’ or ‘understanding’ of homosexuality from the average American. You can forget about trying to persuade the masses that homosexuality is a good thing. But if only you can get them to think that it is just another thing…then your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won” (25)
    * Part of the homosexual agenda is to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle, as one homosexual admitted in the October 1987 homosexual rally on Washington: “We are no longer seeking just a right to privacy and a protection from wrong. We also have a right — as heterosexual Americans already have — to see government and society affirm our lives” (27)
    * Part of the homosexual agenda is to turn people from Christianity: “The teaching that only male-female sexual activity within the bounds and constraints of marriage is the only acceptable form should be reason enough for any homosexual to denounce the Christian religion” (1)
    * Homosexuals knowingly lied (and still lie) about the 10% figure (i.e., homosexuals make up 10% of the population). As Tom Stoddard (formerly of the Lambda Legal Defense Fund) said, “We used that figure when most gay people were entirely hidden to try to create an impression of our numerousness” (17).

    The true number of homosexuals.

    * The Kinsey study of 1948, which homosexuals often cite to say that 10% of the population is homosexual, actually says that only 4% of the population is EXCLUSIVELY homosexual. This study involved a disproportionate number of people who had been in jail for sex crimes (hardly a random sample of the population). Kinsey also did perverse studies involving young boys and pedophiles. Information on Kinsey
    * Current research shows that the true percentage of homosexuals is in the 1-2% range (15,23,26,28). Consider how small this number is when compared to most of the numbers above.

    Homosexuals aren’t discriminated against in employment, so why should they be a protected class?

    * The average yearly income of a homosexual is $55,430.00 (most of which is disposable because no children to take care of!). The average of the general population is $32,144.00. The average of blacks is $12,166.00 (24)
    * 59.6% of homosexuals are college graduates. 18.0% of the general population are college graduates (24). Too bad they aren’t smart enough to listen to God. “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:22)
    * 49.0% of homosexuals hold professional/managerial positions. 15.9% of the general population hold such positions (24). Where’s the job discrimination?

    Sexual Orientation

    • A phrase that has come up recently in this earth is “sexual orientation.” This is a phrase made up by homosexuals to try to make themselves look less filthy than they really are. The purpose of the phrase is to take the spotlight from what these perverts do, and put it on the notion that they are just poor, mistreated people, who simply are attracted to members of the same sex – as if they aren’t engaging in activity forbidden by God Almighty. “Sexual orientation,” as used today, has nothing to do with sexual activity (yeah, right), but only refers to who or what a particular person is attracted to. If you think that people of other “sexual orientations” are just fine, let’s see what other “sexual orientations” you would necessarily have to accept as wholesome and pure. If you’re not going to discriminate based on “sexual orientation”, then you must not discriminate against any of the following. Bestiality, pedophile, necrophilia., exhibitionism, fetishism, frotteurism, masochism, sadism, transvestitism, voyeurism. If you discriminate against any of these, you’re a hypocrite. These “sexual orientations” are generally known as “paraphilias”, and are mental disorders – just like homosexuality used to be (29).

    I practiced the homosexual lifestyle for 14 years until I realized that it was ungodly. I had alot of homosexual friends and who you have sex with is definitely a choice. That cannot be blamed on God. Most of my previous homosexual friends, like me, were in denial. And many of us had been molested. The guy who wrote this article is right on the money. Homosexuality, I agree, is not at all natural and its a fact that nearly all species do not engage in it. I am a veternarian and my wife was a zoologist for over 10 years. There is alot in the way of facts to support this guy’s article.

  9. Tara says:

    I agree with Marque-Anthony and the people who are insulting him should read their Bibles. They sound angry but they didn’t really bring forth any facts. All they did was criticize his but offer nothing to contradict what he said.

  10. Marque Anthony says:

    Englisg and Rosetts were misspelled on purpose to emphasize a point.
    “Scriptures” being misspelled was a type-o
    Negative comments about my article show small minds who do not know how to respectfully disagree. I could give you so much hard evidence regarding the points I made that it would make your heads spin. There is also a difference between hate sppech and freedom of speech. The article I wrote has been published several places all around the country. Maybe both Kimberly and Tolerance should take a look at God’s perspective towards homosexuality. I challenge you to look at what God has said in the Bible about homosexuality, not to avoid it by throwing verses at me. I do not have to judge anyone, GOD ALREADY HAS!

    Finally, I made points based on sociology, psychology, human physiology and alot more. The best you could do guys was to attack me with Bible verses when God himself has a problem with homosexuality? Really?

  11. Marque Anthony says:

    Lost Tolerance
    I stated a dozen facts Tolerance. Do your research. Are you a homosexual? Also using scripturs cannot negate the evidence of the other verses I presented. You don’t understand how scripture works, thus you don’t understand how God works. His position is clear in the verses I listed. If you have a problem with them, you have a problem with He who said them. As for what you call Pseudoscience, that is also incorrect. Check out a book on human physiology or anatomy. Can two of the same sex reproduce? No. The stats are also everywhere that prove households are out of balance when the mother and father are not there. I would be happy to show you the stats but you want to flex your effiminate opinion instead of hearing the facts.

    Kimberly, if you are going to attempt to criticize, take a class on englisg grammar or get Rosetts Stone first and practice on your vocabulary. Wow.

  12. Kimberly says:

    Look I don’t care you think that Homosexuality is wrong but no one relay care; do you get that?If they love them then they should be happy:And don’t u dare use realign as any excuse;you just hate gays and lesbian for no good reason.
    So shut up with your big,fat month.

  13. Tolerance says:

    This is ridiculous pseudoscience masquerading as fact…and it’s not even well written. Nor is it religiously sound; Marque-Anthony, since you referenced the Lord in your article, you should probably also take a look at Luke 6:37-6:42, Romans 2:1, John 8:7, Romans 14:13, Colossians 3:12-3:15, and perhaps most importantly, James 4:11-4:12.

    A little info for you to consider, if you’re willing to look beyond your own hate-filled views: http://notalllikethat.org/taking-god-at-his-word-the-bible-and-homosexuality/

    And for anyone reading this and following this guy: Matthew 7:15.
