Obama Plays the Gay Card
Faith Facts Publishing ^ | january 22, 2013 | Charles Meek

Posted on 01/22/2013 5:48:07 PM PST by grumpa

Obama played the gay card in his inaugural address. There is a lot of misconception about homosexuality. Frankly, most of what we hear is based in ignorance. Let’s get to the truth about this issue. This is a very brief summary of our article at http://www.faithfacts.org/christ-and-the-culture/gay-rights. In the original article we cite numerous scientific studies which we invite the reader to investigate.

1. What causes homosexuality? There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that homosexuality is genetic. All such studies that once purported to support that idea of a gay gene have been discredited. There are various factors, however, that are associated with being gay. These include: detached parenting (especially from the father), childhood sexual abuse, accusations at a young age about lack of athletic ability in a boy. Cultural factors also play a role; homosexual rates increase in societies that accept the practice.

2. Can homosexuals change? Yes. The cure rate is about the same as alcoholism. Depending on the study, the success rate of those wanting to leave the lifestyle is between 30% and 70%. Even though the success rate is not 100%, like other difficult pathologies, we should not assume that change is impossible.

3. Isn’t the homosexual lifestyle a loving one? While there are exceptions to the rule, the homosexual lifestyle is ravaging. Statistics show that homosexual behavior is marked by death, disease, disappointment, promiscuity, perversity, addiction, and misery. The real threat to persons in the homosexual lifestyle does not seem to be discrimination, but physical devastation. For example, the best available evidence indicates a 20% to 30% shorter lifespan for practicing homosexuals. 25% to 30% of homosexuals are alcoholics compared to 7% in the general population. Homosexual men have an HIV infection rate 60 times higher than the general public. Homosexuals are 16 times more likely than heterosexuals to molest a child and 15 times more likely to murder. Various studies have shown that gays have somewhere between 10 and 110 different sex partners per year.

4. Why should we discriminate against homosexuals who want to marry? Many in the culture have mistakenly concluded that marriage is merely an institution for the convenience of adults. The problem with this understanding of marriage is the profoundly mistaken idea that marriage is about the rights and happiness of adults—that two adults have a right to happiness for as long as and in any form they want. In actuality, marriage is not adult-centric, but is the bedrock institution for culture to sustain itself through having and nurturing children. Anal intercourse, of course, does not produce children. Marriage is about the rights of children. Anything that weakens the institution of marriage is an injustice toward children. Statistics conclusively prove that children do far better with a parent of both sexes. The two sexes are complementary, and this shows up in various statistics in the health and success of the children. Interestingly, only 2% of gays who are given the chance to marry do so.

Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

if it was genetic, identical twins would always both be gay 100% of the time. on average if one is, only about 50% of the time the other is also gay.

and if they claim there’s some kind of genetic predisposition to it, that means it’s a condition, like people saying they’re predisposed to be alcoholic, or do drugs, or any other self-destructive behavior they’d care to mention. nobody encourages people to engage in predisposed negative behaviors, and neither should they be encouraged to engage’in homosexuality.

“There are various factors, however, that are associated with being gay. These include:..accusations at a young age about lack of athletic ability in a boy.”

This would be the first time I have heard or read that being accused of not being athletic causes one to be gay.

Do you have data to back up that claim.

We are not created equal, thus the love we commit to one another is also not equal.

Today, many in the church are professing the message that Jesus doesn’t care because he is all about love and accepts whatever you do. I have heard this myself from people who work in churches.

Though they represent an extreme minority, the homofascists want to, like the European powers did, colonize us to their morality, except in the opposite direction.

It’s also important to know that the homofascists are not just about promoting being gay. The real agenda is pedophilia. It is, was, and always will be about getting to the children and preying on them.

Never forget that.

A study showed that nearly half of gay men have had over 100 sexual partners. A third of them had over 500.

The surprising thing here is that anyone should find the above, if it's really true, surprising. It says far more about male sexuality than it does about homosexuality. If men could as easily find female partners with the same attitude toward sex as men nearly half would have had over 100 sexual partners and a third of them would have had over 500. But to find willing female partners with that kind of frequency, a straight man has to have the adjuvant of fame.

A good analysis. This is useful information. I had no idea about the shorter homosexual lifespan. Now that Obama is ready to totally feminize our military, then our schools (with gender equality events such as compulsory ‘dress like a girl week’ like they have in Sweden.), we should take the fight to him. I remember when support for abortion was so high that it looked like the pro-life cause was lost, then we won support back because we exposed the horrors of the practice. We should do the same with this.

People who believe this have never opened and read the Bible. Jesus despises evil and doesn’t put up with it. He embraces those that give up their sinful ways and follow Him. There is a Hell and the evil doers just choose not to believe in it so they can go about their evil ways. Plain and simple.

At least a couple of studies found that at least 80% (or more) of homosexuals were molested as children or teenagers by older homosexuals.

Homosexuals are made, not born.

And adult homosexuals prey on lonely kids, especially those without fathers, or with distant fathers. ANd with so many children born out of wedlock or with divorced parents now, they have a wide open opportunity - that and the gov stamp of approval, GLSEN clubs in schools and the rest of it.

i think we need to take the “physically dangerous” angle they are attempting to paint law abiding gunowners with, and send it right back to them with respect to homosexual practices that are proven to be medically dangerous and significantly raise healthcare costs for everyone.

The most critical time of development in human beings are the early years which will determine the quality of all future relationships. “Trust” is developed in the first two years of life—if this window for Trust is destroyed by loss of the bonded parent, severe problems occur in their development. (Attachment Theory-Bowlby)

Psychogenesis: the Early Development of Gender Identity” by Moberly gives an analysis of studies on homosexuality and the link to the hurtful “love-source” of an infant or a very young child. When the “love-source” behaves hurtfully towards the child, it creates a defensive barrier to the “love source” which blocks normal process of attachment —there is a “repressed love-need” which causes problems with normal sexual development later in life when the “repressed” feelings come out as paranoia.

It is too long to type about but the book is really interesting.

In “Latency” period, (6-12), it is very important for boys to identify with other boys and feel good about themselves—compared to other boys. Same with girls. It is the normal sexual formation process and normal for girls to prefer being with other girls and boys prefer being with other boys.

For a girl or boy to be rejected by their peer “group” is very damaging to their idea of self, unless the parent gives them strategies to deal positively with it-—If they hate team sports or are bad at it-—put the boy in with chess players-—on a swim team—golf team—but with other BOYS so he has solid relationships with peers of own sex. If this doesn’t happen-—that yearning for male (Identitarian-need) companionship is warped.

As Kuehnelt-Leddihn wrote in his “Leftism” book-”...all identitarian drives not only take a stand for sameness and oppose otherness, but also are self-seeking. There is an identitarian (and nonsexual) aspect to homosexuality (”homoeroticism”) coupled with the refusal to establish the sometimes difficult intellectual, spiritual, psychological bridge to the other sex. And in this respect homosexuality is a form of narcissism, of immaturity and implies the limitations of the “simpleton.”

Then you have little Afghani boys-—but they are taught to hate women when they are young and put into harems for the men, if they are pretty enough—and they dream of growing up and having harems of boys. Cultures that promote sodomy is “child abuse”.

Cultures can normalize anything for children.

Surprisingly, a lot of homosexuals didn't vote for Obama; I saw a figure at 70% of homosexuals who voted for him, far below the 95% of blacks who voted for him.

Where they get these numbers, I have no idea. But they aren't flattering for one of Obama's staunchest bases, which leads me to believe there's some truth to it.

Famous IMMORAL DOGLIKE men have big numbers of partners.

As though the majority of men (and women) throughout history were not immoral.
