Except the difference would be that Russian roulette only has a bullet in one chamber, not all six.

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?

Drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco, using "recreational" drugs, and overeating also lead to severe health risks. By the same arguments as in the article, these should also be prohibited.

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.

"Victimhood" is a very powerful old Communist propaganda tool. Because of this powerful tool, people are now forced to "tolerate" and finance all sin - it's called the doctrine of Political correctness.
It has replaced the old living, breathing constitution we once knew, and the demonizing of all that is traditional or life afferming. The "victims" of themselves have been givin political power over the self accountable. The self accountable need no government.

Wow. You'd think they'd outlaw this practice, wouldn't you?

Yes. Homosexuals, lesbians, and bi's aren't victims of their lifestyle. They chose it. Unfortunately, there are those, like girfriends and boyfriends of bisexuals, who get to "share" in all of these simply wonderful diseases that are being taken to record heights and numbers by those who decide to engage in an unhealthy and perverted lifestyle.

Problem is, there are actually many children who are being exposed to the influences of organizations like GLSEN, which come into schools, promote the homosexual/lesbian/bisexual lifestyle, without giving pertinent information such as this post contains. Actually, GLSEN and others like them shouldn't be in the schools at all. The topic of gays should be spoken by PARENTS to their children and no one else. So, in fact, there are many unsuspecting kids out there which have no idea the health risks of homosexuality, and unfortunately your opinion or mine wont bring about significant disapproval of the gay lifestyle being promoted in school. Cold hard facts will, though.

You left out that homos also are more likely to shoplift and cheat on their taxes.

No. I mean school choice for everyone. Parents need to be able to raise their own kids as they see fit. Even Christians pay school taxes! America is a free country, is it not? It wouldn't cause the death of anyone. It's life afferming.
