But (depending on how much effort people put into hiding them) certain illuminating facts have a way of breaking up the fog of fashionable immorality and political correctness. Below are some statistics cited in the book about the health risks of homosexual behavior (as distinct from homosexual orientation). Keep in mind the sources for the data are not right-wing, fundamentalist preachers, but reputable medical institutions and researchers who identify themselves as gay. I’ve highlighted in red the points I found most shocking.
In the past when I’ve expressed my conviction that homosexual behavior (not orientation) is immoral, and a travesty of human sexuality, some people have been quick to let me know how exceptionally mean I am because they have friends or family members who are gay. In light of the information below, if you have friends or loved ones who practice homosexuality, please, please don’t hesitate to show them these stats. How could anyone who loves another person living with this kind of risk fail to warn them?
"According to 'Correlates of Homosexual Behavior and the Incidence of Anal Cancer' in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the risk of anal cancer soars by 4,000 percent among those who engage in anal intercourse. At the Fourth International AIDS Malignancy Conference at the National Institutes of Health in May 2000, Dr. Andrew Grulich said that the incidence of anal cancer among homosexuals with HIV 'was raised 37-fold compared with the general population'."
"In 2006 homosexual journalist Simon Fanshawe wrote in the Guardian: 'Hooked on drugs and sex and looks, we call it gay culture. The figures are staggering: 20 percent of gay men in London use the incredibly damaging crystal meth. Studies show that men who do are twice as likely to become HIV positive. Since 1999, the figures for HIV infections have continued to rise in the UK. Syphilis infection rates among gay men have increased by 616 percent in the past five years.' All of this has resulted in a substantially reduced life expectancy for active homosexuals."
“New data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) are over 44 times more likely than other men to contract HIV, and over 40 times more likely than women to contract HIV. Further, MSM are over 46 times more likely to contract syphilis than other men, and over 71 times more likely than women to contract syphilis. According to the CDC, MSM comprised 57 percent of people newly infected with HIV in the United States in 2006, even though MSM are only 2 percent of the adult population.” According to Dale O’Leary, “While MSM make up for only a tiny percentage of the population, they account for 72 percent of primary and secondary syphilis cases, plus 79 percent of HIV diagnoses among men, and a significant percentage of other STDs.”
"Fr. James Schall remarked, 'The purpose of government, as a consequence, is to make whatever we want to do possible for us with little or no cost to ourselves. If our activities cause diseases or derangements of human lives, the solution is not, through self-discipline, to stop the activities that cause the damage but to find a ‘cure’ that will enable us to continue what we want without any consequences to ourselves. We look to technology to substitute for our own lack of self-rule.' This attitude is so manifest that the clearest path to AIDS prevention is ignored or neglected because it does not fit into the liberal sexual ethos.”
"Overall, the authors of Sex in America reported that 90 percent of heterosexual women and more than 75 percent of heterosexual men have never engaged in extramarital sex. This comports more or less, given human frailty, with what one would expect from the natural exclusivity of spousal love. In short, heterosexual couples were 41 times more likely to be monogamous than homosexual couples...fidelity is not typically the case with homosexual couples. He cites The Male Couple, researched and written by two homosexual authors, as 'one of the most carefully researched studies of the most stable homosexual pairs'. He states that 'its investigators found that of 156 couples studied, only seven had maintained sexual fidelity; of the hundred couples that had been together for more than five years, none had been able to maintain sexual fidelity. The authors noted that ‘the expectation for outside sexual activity was the rule for male couples and the exception for heterosexuals.’ ”
