Although there are many reasons to oppose the normalization of homosexuality, this reason alone would be enough: it represents an enormous risk to human health.

According to a recent and extensive survey, homosexuals have "excess health problems" compared to sexually normal people. They suffer disproportionately from "impaired physical and mental health, heavy alcohol consumption, and heavy cigarette use."

The National Health Interview Survey, which has been conducted since 1957, included a question about sexual preference for the first time in 2013 and 2014. The results are astounding and alarming for anyone who cares about people who are trapped in a sexually abnormal lifestyle.

The survey included 69,000 participants – so it can't be dismissed because of sample size – and it was published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) Internal Medicine, so it can't be dismissed as the product of right wing homophobic bigots. The leader of the project is Gilbert Gonzales of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

The survey found that a sexually non-normative lifestyle takes a particular toll on women and bisexuals. Lesbians are 91 percent more likely to report inferior health outcomes compared to heterosexual women, and bisexual women are 100 percent more likely to report chronic health conditions.

Those in alternative lifestyles were more likely than the sexually normal to report heavy drinking and smoking.

The politically-compromised researchers were quick to blame social bias and rejection for these devastating numbers. But this is utterly implausible. Homosexuality now is the most-favored sexual preference on the planet, celebrated by lawmakers, Hollywood celebrities, and presidential candidates.

If there are any folks experiencing bigotry and social rejection, it would be Christian students, bakers, florists, photographers, or wedding planners. Yet they seem remarkably well-adjusted considering the constant abuse they take from every quarter.

Further evidence that these alarming health results in the "gay" population can't be chalked up to bias and prejudice comes from the fact that similar surveys in Scandinavian countries consistently show similar results, despite the plain fact that sexually adventurous lifestyles have been celebrated there for decades.

The simple truth is that homosexual behavior is harmful to everyone who participates in it. It is harmful physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Those who care about homosexuals have a duty to warn them. If we care about homosexuals, we will tell them the truth about the dangers of homosexual behavior. Love can do no less.

  • American history is made: two transvestites win their congressional primaries. The only question that remains is which form of sexual abnormality will be next to be celebrated at the ballot box. My guess is that it will be an admitted pedophile or someone who openly practices polygamy or incest. The point here is that once you cross the threshold that sex is exclusively for marriage and that marriage is between a man and a woman, there is simply no logical place to stop. It's only a matter of time.

  • It may be time to suspend the Syrian refugee program. Adult Muslim males are enrolling in Canadian high schools and harassing females students who are years younger than they are. Everybody is afraid to stand up to them for fear of being labeled Islamophobes, and so the harassment continues unabated. If it can happen in Canada, it can and will happen here, if it hasn't already.
