Posted on 12/09/2003 9:08:24 AM PST by Laissez-faire capitalist

The sexual activities engaged in by homosexuals inevitably lead to a whole range of viral and bacterial infections that can result in sterility, cancer and death.

Homosexual behavior is unsafe and should not be promoted as a healthful or harmless lifestyle.

Homosexual Behavior Fuels AIDS and STD Epidemic

December, 2003- theCenters for Disease Control (CDC) announced on November 26, 2003, that AIDS infections increased in 29 states in 2002 among Blacks, Latinos, and Homosexual and Bisexual men. The overall rate of increase was 5.1% over a four-year period between 1999-2002. Fifty-five percent of those infections are among Blacks; there was a 26% increase among Latinos; and a 17% increase among homosexuals and bisexuals. There was a 7% increase in AIDS infections among non-homosexuals. These CDC statistics are published in the November 28 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)1.

Dr. John Diggs Jr. has recently published statistics on the serious health consequences of engaging in homosexual sodomy. His report, "The Health Risks of Gay Sex." was published by the Corporate Resource Council. This report is downloadable at http://www.corporateresourcecouncil.org/white_papers/Health_Risks.pdf 2.

Dr. Diggs notes that homosexual sodomy is an effective transmitter of a whole range of STD's including AIDS. He also points out that human physiology makes it clear that anal intercourse is an un-healthy practice that damages the body and can lead to serious health consequences-including anal cancer. "Unhealthy sexual behaviors occur among both heterosexuals and homosexuals. Yet the medical and social evidence indicate that homosexual behavior is uniformly unhealthy." observes Diggs.

Sex among homosexual males typically includes: oral and anal sex;rimming(mouth-to-anus contact0;fisting(insertion of the hand and arm into the rectum); golden showers(urination);insertion of objects such as bottles, flashlights and even gerbils into the rectum;sadomacochism(beatings with whips, chains, etc); and otrher practices. These various behaviors cause trauma to the rectum, contributing to the spread of AIDS;increase incidences of oral and anal cancer;and result in serious infections due to the ingestion of fecal matter.

One of the largest surveys ever conducted of homosexual sex praxtices was published by two homosexual researchers in 1979. In the Gay Report by Jay and Young, they reported that 99% engaged in oral sex; 91% had anal intercourse;83% engaged in rimming;22% had done fisting; 23% admitted to participating in golden showers; 76% admitted to public or group sex; 73% admitted having sex with boys; and 4% admitted to eating feces. 3.

Dr. Gisela L.P. Macphail, a physician at the University of Calgary in Canada, described the serious health risks of homosexual behavior in a letter to the Calgary Board of Education in September, 1996. She is an epidemiologist and regularly treats AIDS patients. According to Dr. Mcphail, "Any practice which facilitates direct or indirect oral-rectal contact will enable the spread of fecal and rectal microorganisms to the sexual partner. Thus anilingus(rimming), a common practice among homosexual men, allows direct spread of pathogens such as Giardia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Hepatitis A and of the typical STD organism such as herpes simplex and gonorrhea." She warned the Calgary school district against promoting homosexual behavior among school children because of the serious health risks. 4.

In August, 1984, just three years after AIDS was diagnosed as a public health threat to homosexuals, columnist Patrick Buchanan and researcher DR. J Gordon Muir published an in-depth look at the "Gay" lifestyle and the diseases associated with in The American Spectator. Writing in "Gay Times and Gay Diseases," the aothors described a series of serious diseases comprising the "Gay Bowel Syndrome."

Those viruses, parasites and bacteria resulting from homosexual sexual practices include: AMEBIASIS, a parasitic colon disease which causes dysentery and liver abscesses; GIARDIASIS, a parasite that causes diarrhea; SHIGELLOSIS, another bowel disesse causing dysentery. HEPATITIS A, a viral liver disease spread by fecal contamination.

According to Buchanan and Muir, San Francisco saw a four-to-ten-fold increase in gay bowel diseases beginning in 1977. As long ago as 1988, San Francisco had a venereal disease infection rate 22 times the national average. 5.

ANAL CANCER--- Dr. Stephen E. Goldstone, the medical director of GAYHEALTH.COM says he has found that 68% of HIV-positive and 45% Of HIV-negative homosexual males have abnormal or pre-cancerous anal cells. 6. A 1987 study, "Sexual Practices, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and the Incidence of Anal Cancer" in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that "homosexual behavior in men increases the risk of anal cancer: 21 of the 57 men with anal cancer(37%) reported that they were homosexual or bisexual, in contrast to only 1 in 64 controls. 7.

HIV FROM ORAL SEX---In August, 2001, researchers at the University of California released the results of a preliminary study of therisk of getting HIV from oral sex. They claimed that homosexuals are at a zero to 2% risk of getting HIV from oral sex. 8. But a study released earlier in 2001 indicated that oral sex is implicated in at least 8% of HIV infections. This earlier study was published in February by the CDC and the University of California at San Francisco. 9.

HIV FROM ANAL INTERCOURSE---In the U.S. anal intercourse conyinues to be the primary transmission route of HIV infections foe homosexuals. The CDC says there are 40,000 new infections each year and the rate of infection is climbing because many younger homosexuals are engaging in risky behaviors. Many have become complacent about the epidemic because of new drugs that control the progression of the disease. As a result, homosexuals are staying alive longer and infecting more individuals. As of 1998, 54% of all HIV infections were homosexuals. An estimated 1 million Americans have been infected with HIV since it was first discovered in the early 1980s. Worldwide, 21 million people have died; 450,000 Americans have died so far from HIV related diseases. 10.

SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES--- A 1999 study published in the American Journal of Public Health indicated that homosexuals are five times as likely to have HEPATITIS B as their heterosexual counterparts. 11. A 1999 study in Sexually Transmitted Diseases indicated that 25% of homosexuals have rectal GONORRHEA and GONORRHEA of the throat is pervalent because of oral sex practices. 12. The book, The Ins and Outs of Gay Sex: A Medical Handbook for Men states that more than 50% of homosexuals have the HUMAN PAPILLOMA VIRUS. Homosexuals are acquiring SYPHILLIS in record numbers. 13. The CDC released two reports on Syphillis rates had declined by 22% in the U.S. since 1997. The second indicated that Syphillis rates among homosexuals in Southern California had risen from 26% to 51% in one year. The report also noted that in Southern California alone, 60% of Syphillis-infected homosexuals were also HIV positive. 14.

TUBERCULOSIS---Homosexuals are at a high risk for spraeding Tuberculosis. In June-August 1998, the Baltimore Health Department tracked the spread of TB by four black transgendered homosexual prostitutes. They had infected 22 others with TB through their sexual activities. TB infection was also spread from Baltimore to New York City. 15.

Dr. Diggs notes, " A compassionate response to requests for social approval and recognition of GLB[Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual] relationships is not to assure gays and lesbians that homosexual relationships are just like heterosexual ones, but to point out the health risks of gay sex and promiscuity. Approving same-sex relationships is detrimental to employers, employees, andsociety in general."

Homopsexual sex leads to serious venereal diseases, anal and oral cancer, and death from HIV infection. This behavior must be discouraged-not promoted as an alternative lifestyle. SODOMY KILLS.

Disapproval of homosexual behavior is not hatred as long as it does not imply rejection of the individual. I do not reject homosexuals, nor hate them as you state. Perhaps it is you who has the hatred and is trying to "project" that onto me.

Please, respond to the info posted on this topic next time. The data is quite compelling wouldn't you say?

The article is so true.
my BIL is a very sick and unhappy gay man. I loathe his lifestyle because it is killing him.however i love him as a human being,it just tears my husband and i up that he thinks his lifestyle is just fine.
he has been in and out of the hospital countless times just this past year with bowel problems and now he has the bad hepatitis.and these are only the health troubles he has told us about,there are more but he will not discuss them with us.
this man is in his 40's and will probably not live to see his 60's so say's his Dr. and his Dr. has also told him he must stop living the dangerous lifestyle so he can prolong his life .

we do not know if he has abided by the dr's. orders or not.he doesn't keep in touch with us much and lives in Hawaii. it's a sad story all around with no winners here at all.

The difference is that NO ONE in a position of power would dare teach children that there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of those behaviors.

Americans are being warned against their use. Yes, these things are also to be shunned by the wise. They all have dire consequences.
Homosexuality should suffer the same fate. Instead, the pro-death crowd not only endorses this vile dysfunctional fetish as "beautiful" or "normal", but they teach it to the young children. That's just plain sick! It's like teaching young children to use needles in their arms.

Indeed. And they wouldn't receive taxpayer funding if they did dare to teach it.

But homosexual groups get to use taxpayer money to teach that their perversion is normal, as documented here and here.

In order to create a Socialist society, there has to be chaos first. The best way to create chaos is to remove morality.
Once morality is lost, families and society as a whole fall into dissarray. That's when the Socialists, those who created the chaos in the first place (manufactured crises), come in as the 'saviors' and promise to 'fix' it with massive social programs. People are so desperate for order by then, they'll accept any leader - be he God or the devil - they will accept him.

They are prohibited, regulated, taxed and highly discouraged.

PSA's every few minutes discourage smoking and drinking.

And as Rush and Ozzie can attest recreational drugs are illegal.

You need to add high calorie soft drinks, Oreos and fast food in an attempt to make your argument.

Oh yeah they are also highly regulated!

As society must bear the huge costs of ones "recreational activities" it does exert influence over those activities.

ie motorcycles and helmet laws is one such example.

From what I have read, most gays simply cannot control themselves. Homosexuals mostly come from screwed up childhoods, have no self identity , feel estranged from normal people, and end up identifying and experimenting with homosexuals. Often when the men are at their most vulnerable they will be preyed upon by older homosexuals who, most of them, are looking for young boys who display signs of vulnerablity. Ultimately their involvement spirals out of control due to the rampant promiscuity within the homosexual community. This rampant, unsfae, cavalier attitude leads them into risky behavior. Your BIL is an example of that.

It's like abortion. The demonic left will eventually kill itself off.
It's happened over and over again throughout history, and history does repeat itself.
Though we try to teach them, they ignore the warning, and prefer to die in great numbers. That's why funding them, or AIDs research, is a waste of time and money. They'll still engage in their deadly behaviors anyway.
Change the behavior, eliminate the problem, and it's free.

No excuse. Muderers can't either. Nor can arsonists.
There is help available if they're that psychologically weak. They used to be kept in insane asylums. At least someone was there to try to help them.
They could admit themselves again, but they can't see their own illness, because they're too ill. They think the other 99% of the population is ill, and they're "normal."

but my husband is not in any way like his brother. now i think that my husbands brother and his sister are intimidated my thier mother whereas my husband is not and never has been.

Drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco, using "recreational" drugs, and overeating also lead to severe health risks.

People keep using this lame argument.

A. Millions of people smoke tobacco with little ill effects - either they smoke moderately, or quit, or have good lungs to begin with. Same thing with drinking - a lot of people use alcohol responsibly. Over eating cannot be compared to anal sex - as though some kind of anal sex is not overdoing it?

B. Compare the millions of people who overindulge in eating, or drinking. Now compare the perhaps 2% of the population who are homosexual. Now compare the percentages of sickness among those vastly different numbers.

C. Even "recreational drugs" have vastly different health effects - how on earth can you compare smoking weed to anal sex - especially promiscuous style, which most homosexuals indulge in?? I guess a heavy meth user could compare to a homosexual. But is that a reason to normalize either activity? Because they both either kill you or shorten your life? Or best case scenario just cause horrible health problems that you live with?

There is a further difference in that these things can, for the most part, be done in moderation without substantial adverse consequences. The same cannot be said for homosexual activities. Just one gay encounter can cause any or all of the harmful effects listed. It's a matter of degree of danger IMHO. And let's not forget that innocent people, like spouses and girlfriends of bisexuals, are also put at risk by these activities.

The left intends to kill off the whole nation in the name of fairness. History will remember the USA as a nation of self destructive idiots and the dictators that rule the world will us us an example of what happens when the people are allowed freedom.

And there's the NAMBLA homosexual pedophiles attempting to lower the age of legal homosexual sex with children down to the age of 10 years old.

Wrong. They'll learn how wonderful freedom is, and how deadly facist litigation is. The people didn't choose homosexuals, the facist liberal courts did. The free people had no say.

This is a news flash? Anal sex is unhealthy for anyone. Anyone who does it is at risk. Anyone with a brain knew that.

Wrong choice of words on my part. Actually, homosexuals have literally "given themselves over to their passions". It is literally a sort of bondage. Reperative therapy, though, has been shown to work in numerous cases concerning getting homosexuals out of this destructive lifestyle.
