Not there, but if you will dig deeper via the CDC links you can find them. All i have now is that

AIDS is the leading cause of death among African Americans aged 24 to 44, while HIV is the third leading cause of death among Latinos and fifth leading cause among whites in the same age group. Kaiser Family Foundation http://www.kff.org/content/2003/3345

In 2001, HIV/AIDS was among the top three causes of death for African American men aged 25-54 years and among the top 4 causes of death for African American women aged 20-54 years. CDC, National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHSTP)

For 2009, see http://www.kff.org/hivaids/us.cfm

You know I was just in a convo with the author of the Outlander series who has a gay man hook up with the wife of the main character in grief. She claimed he was no dirtier than any ordinary sexually active man. Thank you, CDC for making my point! Sometimes it boggles the mind.

All increases in immorality work toward the breakdown of the family and nation, on the physical, financial and spiritual level,

Are gays are more likely to contribute to this breakdown than non-gays?
Do we have some empirical evidence on that or is that just your opinion?

The real argument is because the Bible, as part of its moral law, shows that He created male and female uniquely compatible and complementary, and only joined them in marriage, which is the only context in which sexual relations are sanctified.

The deleterious effects of promiscuous sex of both kinds is an argument in favor of the wisdom God’s laws.

Romans 1 speaks of an afflictive penalty* for male homoeroticism, and male homosex is medically indicated to more easily spread infectious diseases, due to details between the MSM sex and that which a women.

While this aspect could be an argument for homosexual marriage, God’s complementary joining of male and female goes beyond mere physical considerations and His design for such, while the only studies done of homosexual marriage show that they most typically redefine it in terms of rejecting monogamy as well.

*”And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Rm. 1:27

Right. But do we have to use the sometimes less descriptive headline of a source for a thread title? I could have used secondary sources which used much the same headline as mine in announcing this.

Personally, I have no problem with any subsegment of society as long as they obey the law and are productive contributing members of society - and I see the vast majority of the gay community in that generalization.
So what do you mean that "by definition" all gays contribute to the breakdown of society..

If you looked at the linked page, you would have seen homosexuality is only a part of it, but it is a most manifest example of rejection of Biblical morality.

The real reason it is wrong is because God has so declared it is (see post 61), and harmful to man.

But on the health aspects, while you seem to want to defend homosexuality as being manifestly healthy, let me assure you that if a consensual behavior such partaking in the Lord’s supper resulted in the deaths of over half a million Americans alone (over 25 mil. world-wide), and a substantially increased incidence of diseases and premature death, and the majority of participants were infected and continued to spread diseases after 30 years of attempts to get them to practice “safe suppers”, then saying it should be promoted would be hard sell.

While homosexual relations are not alone in spreading AIDS, it has been the foremost means of doing so, with heterosexual promiscuity providing the majority of the rest.

I love how the CDC attributes this to a complex set of factors, but then admits it is because these men stick their penises in the anuses of other men.

Also, I guarantee the actual disparity is even greater, as no doubt, many of those with syphillis or HIV who claim to be heterosexuals are actually homosexuals.

It is both sad and infuriating that the Democrat party and the MSM continue to encourage this self-destructive behavior by telling these men it is normal. Anyone who cares about homosexuals would love them enough to tell them the truth. Is it loving to tell a meth or crack addict that their behavior is normal and harmless?

It is also infuriating that Liberals like John Kerry want to allow and encourage these lost men to contaminate the blood supply and sicken and kill thoudands and thousands of innocent people for the sake of political correctness.

This is just a wild guess on my part. I have not spent a penny in research money to come to this conclusion. It just could be that this group of people are engaging in a behavior that is unique to this particular population, and that behavior is putting them at vastly increased risk of contracting syphilis and HIV. Since these are both venereal diseases, I conclude that these people are engaging in sexual practices that are different that the rest of the population.

You show a heart on this sees the evil but seeks to turn them from it.

The reason why liberals seek to allow and encourage this is the same reason they favor Islam, which is because they have a shared rebellion against the God of the Bible (as Pilate and Herod became friends), and thus a rebellion against just moral authority. The devil is the author, and our sinful nature is his ally, and we wrestle not against flesh and blood.

It’s really an anal sex thing. It is also more common in heterosexual relationships in Europe, and women are more prone to Aids in Europe as well. Go figure.

Then there is the dry sex in Africa which, among other things, ensures there is a high infection rate there.

Islam using the immorality in America to justify hating us neither justify them or it, as both become manifestly deleterious to a society the more they increase. And it is the increasing iniquity and demonic ideologies within that are ultimately more dangerous than the enemy without.

Our threat is from the insidious forces working from within which have already so drastically altered the character of our free institutions — those institutions we proudly called the American way of life.

In short, is American life of the future to be characterized by freedom or by servitude, strength or weakness? The answer must be clear and unequivocal if we are to avoid the pitfalls toward which we are heading with such certainly. In many respects it is not to be found in any dogma of political philosophy, but in those immutable precepts which underlie the Ten Commandments.

The people have it in their hands to restore morality, wisdom and direction to of our foreign and domestic affairs, and regain the religious base which in times past assured general integrity in public and private life. - Douglas MacArthur

The last time the Society of Actuaries published mortality statistics for male homosexuals (which I believe was in the mid-1980's) the life expectancy for a male homosexual was age 45, and this is based on mortality statistics collected primarily pre-HIV.

I maintain that the homosexual life-style should be viewed the same as smoking. Neither behavior should be legitimized. The best reason for rejecting the normalization of homosexuality is that it is a behavior that's more dangerous than smoking.

“So what do you mean that “by definition” all gays contribute to the breakdown of society..”

You appear to be part of the problem. The abandonment of traditional morals includes rampant adultery; divorce; normalization and promotion of homosexuality; sexualization of the young; dishonesty in all forms; corruption in government and business...

Homosexuality is a perverse rejection of Nature and an abomination to God and anyone else with half a brain.
Did you get you moral code in San Fran, or a completely different planet??

While that “ALL gays contribute to the breakdown of society..” may not be proven statistically, the negative effects of prevalent homosexuality is abundantly evidenced. More stats if you wish.

However, an atheist need not yield to such evidence, while their objectively baseless morality allows them to justify what seems reasonable to them, which in this case is homosexuality.
