*Sigh* more of this religous based agenda shoved down our throat garbage.

It'd be quicker just to label homosexuals as witches so that you could burn them at the stake. . .

wow thanks for the post, I love statistics....

This one bears repeating.

Pedophilia is widespread among the homosexual community. Though homosexuals make up just two percent of the U.S. population, homosexuals commit 33 percent of the pedophilia crimes.

According to Centers for Disease Control interviews, 50% of male homosexuals had over 500 sexual partners, the first several hundred homosexual men diagnosed with AIDS had an average of l,100 lifetime partners. (Rotello, G. (1997). Sexual Ecology: AIDS and the Destiny of Gay men. NY: Dutton.)

Holy moly!

Excellent post. Haven't read all of it yet!

But I certainly like the Myth and Fact format!

GLB HETERO

Suicidal Ideation 67.9% 29.0%
Suicide Attempt 32.1% 7.1%
Psychiatric disorders age 14 -21
Major depression 71.4% 38.2%
Generalized anxiety Disorder 28.5% 12.5%
Conduct disorder 32.1% 11.0%
Nicotine dependence 64.3% 26.7%
Other substance abuse/dependence 60.7% 44.3%
Multiple disorders 78.6% 38.2%

In other words at age 21 the GLB (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual) portion of the cohort has significantly more problems in every category.


Especially startling facts!

This is a very good review and contains literature that is hard to find even with much effort. Thank You.

In spite of its value, there are several points I would like to make. It is important to stress homosexuality is not an all or none phenomenon. Traditionally, male homosexuals were categorized in a simple fashion on two parameters. The first was whether their basic identification was masculine –in this instance the homosexual male would have a completely normal masculine interest and behavior pattern but would show preference for homosexual acts. The strongly identified male homosexual is often found in male occupations including athletics, military service, professions and so forth. There is another group of homosexuals who are more troubled and troubling –these individuals have a strong feminine identification – so much so they are often easily identified by the lay person with pejorative labels. Of course, these are two poles of the problem and most homosexuals probably are an admixture of the two.

There is another continuum that males fall on as well. This is easiest to understand assuming a continuum of 1-10 where 1 would be complete heterosexuality and 10 would be compete homosexuality. This means you would find most heterosexual men (but not all) towards 1-3 and homosexuals (but not all) 7-10. Do not dismiss this continuum completely out of hand. Freud felt the punishing statutes and laws regarding homosexuality were written by men to suppress or repress their own homoerotic desires. You might not agree with this as well, but IMHO this continuum theory has heuristic value in considering the possibility of change either by treatment or faith.

Finally, we should probably all be aware of God’s gifts. Sometimes he gives with one hand and takes away with another –Leonardo DeVinci is a good example. IMHO male homosexuals are over represented in many highly valuable creative and scientific endeavors. Also, finally, we have no real, final conclusions as to the etiology of homosexuality in spite of great effort to argue this or that theory.. It is a hard subject to come to grips with and we have been ill served by restricting psychological inquiry and investigation by postmodern, political efforts to declare homosexuality normal.

SUPER PING!

I have known and currenlty know homosexuals who have successfully come to grips with their problem, and have stayed far away from that lifestyle. They go so far as to marry, have kids, and enjoy heterosexual sex.

The problem this article fails to mention is that there is far more to the homosexual agenda than just wanting to "normalize" same-sex unions --to understand fully what they are after, you must understand that the underlying motive of the homosexual lifestyle is a bizzare combination of rebellion and woundedness. The typical source of the "wound" that the male homosexual suffers from is usually some sort of deviant relationship with their father. It ranges from a father who is abnormally critical of their son, to a father who was simply not there for their son, either to do divorce, death, or just emotional distance. (Not to mention fathers who have forced sexual relations with their sons...)

Because of the emotional wounds received at the hands of their father, they do what they can to find acceptance and love from other males. Sadly, the line between acceptance and sex often gets blurred, and the homosexual lifestyle takes root. But due to the tremendous cultural condemnation for homosexuality, they often find themselves not only desiring male acceptance, but become "rebels without a cause" knowing that society looks down it's nose at their lifestyle. Hence, they choose to rebel against society rather than the more painful and difficult task of changing their lifestyles. In sex with other males, they find the acceptance and the love that was denied to them from their fathers; as bizzare as that sounds. Giving up that lifestyle without first healing the wound that caused it, only results in emotional pain and suffering.

I'm no scientist: the information above is what I've found out from former homosexuals themselves.

If anything, this speaks to the non-negotiable need for fathers (and strong fathers at that) to be actively and positively involved in the lifes of their sons. This simple remedy, more so than anything else, does more to "prevent" homosexuality than anything else, including religious indoctrination.

The attack on men, and fatherhood in particular, in our Western society, is doing more to undermine the mental and emotional health of humanity as a whole than anything else. The rebels attack that which is really the thing that will do them (and us) most good.

The rebirth of goddess worship is the latest in this attack, and can be most clearly seen in the recently published and very popular novel "The Da Vinci Code."

re: agenda - don't remember who said it, but I remember reading recently that someone believed that Sodomites (sorry, homosexuals) were more highly evolved than us heteros. Since I am a creationist, I can't accept that...and it makes one wonder how, by definition, since homosexuals do not procreate, they managed to reproduce themselves.

A liberal friend with who I argue politics and the like ran out of responses on homosexuality when I pointed out to him (after reading it somewhere here) that humans are born, physically, heterosexual.

We are physically born either male or female, the rest is all attitude.
