I have done a huge study on homosexuality available here: A Study of Homosexuality and its repercussions.. However, I know that since it is such a large paper, most won’t take the time to go through all of it. Since there are very many important issues that I went over, I want to shorten my paper dramatically, so perhaps more people will take the time to go over this issue. I will do each section in the same order, noting that if anybody wants to see that section, and documentation in depth, it is available in the larger study.

Recently, there has been a push for homosexual rights across the country, with many pushing for civil right of homosexuals. The rights of homosexuals have been portrayed as similar to the rights of blacks in the civil rights era with Martin Luther King. In this paper I will look extensively at this issue. I will argue that the society is better if we do not accept homosexual marriage as the equivalent to heterosexual marriage. I will use Scripture at times, but for most of the paper, it will be an examination of non-Scriptural stuff. There is a paper that I did do a Scriptural examination in an exchange with a homosexual advocate, That is available here .) Nonetheless, the reason why I and many others preach against homosexuality is summarized in one Scripture: 1 Cor. 6:9-11, Paul relates:

9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
Souls are at stake. I say what Scripture speaks for the sake of their souls. If they keep on that path, their soul will not be able to inherit the kingdom of heaven, and I do not want them to lose their souls. We will see that homosexuals have a higher rate of transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, higher suicide rate, higher rate of alcoholism, drug abuse, partner psychological and sexual abuse, etc. If Christians are true to their faith, they hold no hatred towards homosexuals. But for many nonreligious reasons, that we shall see, homosexual activity should not be promoted. We will see that they are not born that way, but there are psychological reasons for it.

One thing that must be admitted is that with the media advocacy, the tide has seemed to turn against the traditional teaching against homosexual activity. Any attempt to be against Homosexual marriage, is now seen as the same as denying service in the south to African-Americans in the 1950s and 1960s.

The Purpose of Marriage

Jesus teaching on marriage does not directly touch on the issue of homosexuality, , but is addressing what he sees as the purpose of marriage. Jesus is asked about marriage, and on what grounds could a man divorce his wife. Here he goes beyond the issue of divorce, but the purpose of marriage itself. We see him as going back to the time of creation of man and woman.

Mark 10:2-8

2 And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” 3 He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.” 5 And Jesus answered and said to them, Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. 7 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh so then they are no longer two, but one flesh .
So besides pointing to the Old Testament, which elsewhere explicitly condemns homosexuality, he also says that the way people were to be mated was as male and female. Man shall be joined to his wife. Male and female. That by definition would exclude male-male couples.

What are the non-Scriptural reasons that society as a whole why homosexuality marriage does not work? The first idea is that the family is the foundation of all society. Children need to be brought up by parents who represents both the feminine and the masculine, to get the best of both worlds. It is essential.

In a book debate on marriage, Maggie Gallagher gives us reasons for marriage:

The first is that the overwhelming majority of us are powerfully attracted, and not by reason, to an act that makes new human life. Sex between men and women makes babies.

The second persistent truth: society needs babies. Reproduction is optional for the individual. But only those cultures that successfully manage the procreative implications of male-female sexual attraction survives to become of the human possibilities.

The third truth on which marriage is based is that children ought to have a father as well as a mother. [1]

So, we see by definition for society the only way that marriage for society to be promoted, if a man and a woman raise a child, that is best for the child. By definition male/male couples will not produce children, and if they adopt children, the children do not get the benefit of both a true mother and true father. A homosexual marriage, by nature does not produce children, and if they adopt children, those children will lack either a mother or father.

Gallagher notes:

Gay sexual unions, either temporary or enduring may entail their own unique goods and difficulties, but they have nothing to do with babies. No same-sex union produces a child. And no same-sex union can give any child the gift of a father and mother in the same family. A gay man is not ‘banned’ from marriage. He quite reasonably does not want to become a husband, and do the full work of marriage. Marriage does not fit him or his needs.

To reorient marriage to the needs of same-sex couples is necessarily to orient it away from its core public and civic mission of channeling sexual passion so that children do not get hurt and so that society gets the next generation it needs.[2]

The children have absolutely nothing to do with homosexual marriage and they are placed at the bottom of the list in priorities. The sexual expression involved in a homosexual relationship leads to venereal disease, and by its nature cannot be procreative.

A study done by Mark Regnerus, it is the largest sampling of any of the studies. The study was of 3000 families of married couples, including 175 who had Lesbian Parents and 73 Male Gay parents, enough to give a statistically significant conclusion, New Family Structures Study. The results are statistically significant:

This was a huge representative sample, of 3000 children, 175 raised by same sex women, and an additional 73 of raised by same sex men. The rest were children who did not have same sex parents. It was weighted as well to ensure accuracy. So, we can see that those people who were brought up by homosexual parents were more likely at some point in time forced to have sex, touched sexually by a parent, more likely to have a same-sex relationship. Psychological issues are shown while only 5% of heterosexually raised children thought recently about suicide. 12% of Lesbian raised children, (more than double the amount), 24% raised by the homosexual fathers, compared to almost 5 times the number of heterosexuals, who wanted to commit suicide. The homosexually raised children were much more likely to be unfaithful to their partner, and more likely to cohabit without the benefit of marriage. So, we see the results of homosexual parenting are not good. The exact numbers are available at my paper. [3]

Are Homosexuals Born Homosexuals? A Look

The premise that is taken by many homosexual advocates is that homosexuals are born homosexuals and any attempt to say that they are not born that way is backwards and bigoted. That ended up serving a basis for the Supreme Court decision that legalized Same Sex marriage. However, no scientific studies really say that. Even if some claim that there is a biological basis for that ‘orientation’, it is only one of many factors.

APA and AMA Recognition

Now, what does the American Psychological association say why Homosexuals have sex with Homosexuals? Does the APA say that they are born that way? Taken from the APA web site is the following statement:

There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors…[4]
Note at the beginning, the APA says there is no agreement of how they are ‘oriented’ to same-sex attraction. Scientists do not say that they are oriented by biological reasons. That is acknowledged by the APA. The same with AMA. However, it was pressure by homosexual rights groups that they put on the APA that led to the change, Ryan Sorba, documents this here:
In 1970, psychiatrists generally considered sexual desires toward members of one’s own gender to be disordered. Karoly Maria Kertbeny’s term, “homosexual” was the official descriptor for those inflicted by this mental-physical disassociative disorder Over the past two years, gay-lib organizations have repeatedly disrupted medical meetings, and three months ago—in the movements most aggressive demonstration so far—a group of 30 militants broke into a meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in Washington, where they turned the staid proceedings into near chaos for twenty minutes. ‘We are here to denounce your authority to call us sick or mentally disordered,’ shouted the group’s leader, Dr. Franklin Kameny, while the 2,000 shocked psychiatrists looked on in disbelief.

Under this “intense political pressure” the APA’s board of trustees finally caved in to the demands of same-gender sex activists. Another same-gender sex activist Mark Thompson writes, “Just before the first of the year, the American Psychiatric Association’s board of trustees declared we were no longer sick.” (The Long Road to Freedom, ed. by Mark Thompsan1994, p. 97) [5]

From the homosexual advocates own words, their policy was to intimidate the APA to remove homosexuality as a disorder.

Mass Resistance notes that LGBT-friendly researchers, Lisa Diamond and Clifford Rosky stated in 2016:

Arguments based on the immutability of sexual orientation are unscientific, given what we now know from longitudinal, population-based studies of naturally occurring changes in the same-sex attractions of some individuals over time.
An amalgamation of studies that show that there are lots of factors that lead to homosexual tendencies with the biological factor not something that is determinative of one’s homosexuality. In this study of a series of studies that researches the causes of homosexuality, McHugh and Mayer conclusion was the following:
The evidence for a genetic basis for homosexuality is inconsistent and inconclusive, which suggests that, though genetic factors explain some of the variation in sexual orientation, the genetic contribution to this trait is not likely to be strong and even less likely to be decisive. As is often true of human behavioral tendencies, there may be genetic contributions to the tendency toward homosexual inclinations or behaviors. Phenotypic expression of genes is usually influenced by environmental factors—different environments may lead to different phenotypes even for the same genes.[7]
So as a given that at the least, genes though perhaps influencing, can not scientifically account for someone becoming homosexual. Next we’ll take a look at a few of the factors that can influence such.

Victims of Molestation

The following is an amalgamation of studies that looked at childhood abuse of childhood abuse of heterosexual as opposed to homosexual children:

Results. Sexual minority individuals were on average 3.8, 1.2, 1.7, and 2.4 times more likely to experience sexual abuse, parental physical abuse, or assault at school or to miss school through fear, respectively. Moderation analysis showed that disparities between sexual minority and sexual nonminority individuals were larger for (1) males than females for sexual abuse, (2) females than males for assault at school, and (3) bisexual than gay and lesbian for both parental physical abuse and missing school through fear. Disparities did not change between the 1990s and the 2000s.

Conclusions. The higher rates of abuse experienced by sexual minority youths may be one of the driving mechanisms underlying higher rates of mental health problems, substance use, risky sexual behavior, and HIV reported by sexual minority adults.[8]

So, this is a cross sectional study, an amalgamation of a look at all the studies of childhood. Sexual minority are of course those who are homosexual/bisexual. According to this amalgamation of all the studies they are 3.8 times more likely to be abused sexually as children

Janet Boynes is a woman who lived a homosexual/lesbian lifestyle for a long time, 14 years, before turning away from it. Before her 13th birthday, she writes:

Bobby was the father of my sister Patricia and my brother Robert and we often went to visit him..

I hated myself for being so weak that I couldn’t even protect myself from him. He drove around my block later that day and I was sure he was looking for me to make sure I didn’t tell anyone what he did to me. I didn’t tell my mother what had happened because I was too afraid of what she would do to me if she found out. I was afraid that she wouldn’t believe me and that she would beat or kill me instead.

Only a few months later, I was raped by an altar boy at church. [9]

Boynes was abused in both a house setting and actually at church. This is common.

Poor Relationship with Same Sex Parent, Close, Dependent Relationship with Opposite Sex Parent

A contributing factor is that there is missing a bonding with the same sex parent, and a lack of male emulation with the Father. For male homosexuals, it would signify a lack of attachment to the Father, and then because the lack of a non-sexual male bonding with the Father, one will make up for that male bonding by wanting, having a sexual relationship with the male figures to make up for the lack of relationship with the Father. Elizabeth Moberly notes:

The homosexual condition implies a problem in the capacity for relating to the same sex, and not merely a desire and facility for so doing. The checking of the same-sex identificatory process will mean that the homosexual is unable to relate in a truly heterosexual manner to the opposite sex. But the essential problem is one of incomplete same-sex psychological development, and it is vital that it should be recognized and dealt with as such.[10]
David Morrison became an active homosexual, did not have a father who was abusive. He just didn’t spend a lot of time with his son, nor did he do Father son things:
Most of the time I recall him as indifferent. It’s not that he neglected the more proprietary part of being a father—food always came to our table, a roof covered our heads, and clothes warmed our backs. Rather, he wasn’t particularly interested in my life unless he needed to discipline me for some failure, which he did in the bathroom with a wide belt. Meanwhile, I recall my mother making herself all too accessible. Where my father was aloof, my mother was cloying. I quickly understood that the family dynamic was she and I against my father. [11]

Father Harvey, as mentioned earlier founded a Catholic Organization called Courage: https://couragerc.org. It is a Catholic Organization that seeks to help those people who have homosexual tendencies, to stay faithful to the biblical, and Catholic teaching on sexuality. With this counseling, he found something common to many, that the maleness identity was missing in early life. Associated with that, he found:

The next most common hurt is that of an emotionally distant, insensitive, or unaffirming father. While there is usually little resistance in recognizing the sports wound, many males have great difficulty admitting how much they have wanted emotionally from their fathers and how deeply hurt they have felt when these needs were not met. This resistance can be overcome in part by the therapists, sharing their own struggles in facing disappointments with their fathers.[12]
A study was done by a field of psychologists, headed up by Irving Bieber, as noted in the book, ‘Homosexuality, a Psychoanalytic Study.’

The homosexual was much more likely to hate his father, he both hated and feared him, did not consider him as admirable. The heterosexuals, though of course they had their own psychological issues, was more likely to be the fathers favorite, less likely to hate his father, accepted his father more, and was more likely to be encouraged by his father to have masculine attitudes. It is noteworthy that of the 106 homosexuals that were studied, 79 of the 106 were identified as detached from their fathers.[13]

In contrast to the distant father we have an overbearing mother. She is not very happy with her husband and confides to her son. She is the son’s actual confidant. She is more likely to openly prefer the patient over her husband, which tells us of a bad relationship with her husband, in order for that to happen. The study showed that mothers actually interfered with heterosexual activity. She also was so concerned about his health that she did not want the boy to play sports.[14] They discourage masculine and encourage feminine things.

The conclusion by Bieber was the following:

A fatherless child is deprived of the important paternal contribution to normal development; however, only few homosexuals in our sample had been fatherless children…. A good father-son relationship and a mother who is an affectionate, admiring wife, provide the son with the basis for a positive image of the father during periods of separation. We have come to the conclusion that a constructive, supportive, warmly related father precludes the possibility of a homosexual son.[15]

Gender Identity Issues

The most prominent issue that lies at the root of the issue, is the inability to grasp male issues. In many cases, they are unathletic, and do not play the rough and tumble type of sports, baseball, basketball, football, etc. In males, a weak masculine identity and loneliness resulting from a lack of male peer acceptance due to an inability to play team sports requiring eye-hand coordination, such as baseball, soccer, and basketball.

One of the examples that touch on both things are shown in the books by those who had turned to homosexuality. For example, Anthony Falzarano, another homosexual, who eventually turned away from homosexuality, as a child, had a bad view about his body, as he relates:

As the boys were getting older my sports deficit became more apparent. After being one of the boys that was constantly humiliated because he was chosen as the last person on the baseball team, I started to give-up in side and withdraw.[16]
In my larger paper I have much more documentation. Those tendencies have some real consequences that impact the people, and sexual proclivities.

Homosexual Psychological and Physical Health Issues

The next thing I want to look at are psychological issues. If homosexuality activity is as normative as heterosexual activity, then issues such as the ability to conduct their daily lives, including in the sexual area, should be comparable.


First thing I’ll look at is suicide attempts. In the US, when suicide is successful, they do not identify by homosexual or heterosexual, so there is no tally on that. However, there are polls that look at whether one has attempted suicide by their orientation, heterosexual or homosexual.

In Sweden it gets to the point that the National Church accepts the integrity of a homosexual ‘marriage.’ We are told it is homophobia that causes problems, not the condition itself. But if society has long accepted it as more normal, then surely suicide rates should be comparable. The study in Sweden says the following:

The risk of suicide was higher among same-sex married individuals as compared to different-sex married individuals (IRR 2.7, 95 % CI 1.5-4.8), after adjustment for time at risk and socioeconomic confounding. Sex-stratified analyses showed a tentatively elevated risk for same-sex married women (IRR 2.5, 95 % CI 0.8-7.7) as compared to different-sex married women. Among same-sex married men the suicide risk was nearly three-fold greater as compared to different-sex married (IRR 2.895 % CI 1.5-5.5). This holds true also after adjustment for HIV status.[17]
We see that those who don’t have HIV status, when even now you can treat HIV with better drugs, they still commit suicide at a much higher rate. For ‘married’ same-sex women, it is elevated, while for same-sex married men, they commit the rate at three times the rate.

Here is another massive amalgamation of studies and its conclusion:



LGB people are at higher risk of mental disorder, suicidal ideation, substance misuse, and deliberate self-harm than heterosexual people.[18]

Look at the Netherlands which legalized homosexual marriage in 2003, well before the US did:

Of the participants, 63.9% and 12.8% reported suicidal ideation and suicide attempts, respectively (no significant gender differences; Table 1). These percentages are much higher than those found in a representative study among 18- to 24-year-old individuals in the Dutch population, which showed that 10.3% had ever “felt so down that they had thought about killing themselves,” and 2.2% had attempted suicide.

Despite the relatively positive attitude toward gay and lesbian people in the Netherlands, this study suggests that suicidality among Dutch LGB youths is significantly higher than among heterosexual youths. This is in line with the findings of studies both among LGB youths in other countries and among Dutch LGB.[19]

Despite the legitimization of homosexual activity, they still commit, and attempt to commit suicide. That in and of itself is a sign of unresolved psychological issuest.

Homosexual Partner Abuse

In many of these issues, it is alleged that it is because of heterosexual hate, homosexuals are victims. Nowadays there is much less anti-homosexual antagonism than there has been in the past. However, whatever the issue, heterosexuals can not make a homosexual attack his lover, partner.

A key survey finds:

The 2010 National Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) found that 44% of lesbian women, 61% of bisexual women, 26% of gay men, and 37% of bisexual men experience IPV at some point in their lives.02 Dank, Lachman, Zweigm and Yahner (2013) found that LGBT youth are more likely to experience all forms of relationship violence compared to heterosexual or cisgender youth.[20]
Antiviolence project in 2014, reported the 2013 results. In this they did a report, that covered reported cases only:
Gay identified survivors remained the majority of those reporting to NCAVP member programs. In 2013 42.8% of total survivors identified as gay, similar to 2012 when 41.7% of those reporting identified as gay. Lesbian survivors accounted for 23.8% of total reports to NCAVP members, remaining consistent with 2102 (24.5%). Bisexual survivors accounted for 11.6% of total reports, heterosexual survivors20 accounted for 15.9% of total reports, and 18.6% of survivors did not disclose their sexual orientation. Questioning (1.3 %), queer (3.4%), and self-identified (1.7%) survivors comprised less than 7% of the total reports. Bisexual survivors increased from 2012 (9.8%) to 2013 (11.6%), while self-identified survivors decreased slightly from 2012 (2.0%) to 2013 (1.7%). Heterosexual survivors decreased from 16.7% in 2012 to 15.9% in 2013. It must be noted here that many transgender survivors may also identify as heterosexual.[21]
Gays, approximately 3% of the population, but 42.8% of survivors are of partners who are abused by their same-sex partner!!! Lesbians account for 24%. That is astounding.

Lesbian Partner Abuse

The book, Mass Resistance notes a CDC analysis of 2010 statistics. The next citations come from this CDC analysis:

• Four in 10 lesbian women (43.8%), 6 in 10 bisexual women (61.1%), and 1 in 3 heterosexual women (35.0%) reported experiencing rape, physical violence, and/or stalking within the context of an intimate partner relationship at least once….[22]

• More than 6 in 10 lesbian women (63.0%), 7 in 10 bisexual women (76.2%), and nearly one-half of heterosexual women (47.5%) experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner at some point in their lives (Table 8). The differences in prevalence between heterosexual and both bisexual women and lesbian women were statistically significant.[23]

Lesbians have a higher rate of physical violence than Heterosexual women.

The study here, reflected findings from a period just a little bit earlier from the US Department of Justice:

The survey found that same-sex cohabitants reported significantly more intimate partner violence than did opposite-sex cohabitants. Among women, 39.2 percent of the same-sex cohabitants and 21.7 percent of the opposite sex cohabitants reported being raped, physically assaulted, and/or stalked by a marital/cohabiting partner at some time in their lifetime. Among men, the comparable figures are 23.1 percent and 7.4 percent (exhibit 8).[24]
We see that lesbians experience a large amount of physical violence by their same sex partner.

Alcohol, Substance Abuse

Mass Resistance refers to a link which shows among youth homosexuals substance abuse is 2.89 times higher than heterosexuals. Within that study that I was pointed to, I found the following, this is a NIH study:

Several decades of research have shown that there are high rates of substance use and substance use disorders in lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) adults, and recent evidence suggests that these higher rates may have their origins in adolescence. For example, some large, well-designed studies with representative samples show high rates of substance use in LGB youth compared to heterosexual youth…

Conclusions Results of this meta-analysis indicate that LGB youth report significantly higher rates of substance use compared with heterosexual youth, and a meaningful proportion of the effects could be characterized as large, to very large, depending on the subgroup and the type of drug that was used. For example, the average Cohen's d for the relationship between sexual orientation and life-time cigarette use, injection drug use and a composite drug use variables were all greater than 0.80. Compared to suggested definitions of small (0.20), medium (0.50) and large (0.80) [34], effects of this magnitude are noteworthy. When the overall effect sizes were converted to odds ratios, the odds of substance use for LGB youth were 190% higher than for heterosexual youth and substantially higher within some subpopulations of LGB youth (e.g. 340% higher for bisexual youth, 400% higher for females).[25]

So apparently the odds of using are two times, whereas actual use of substance use is almost three times the rate. Illegal drug use is documented prevalent in same-sex communities in study after study. With increasing acceptance of this behavior by this community, why is the psychological foundation of the people who are doing this, not looked at?

Sexual Fidelity

Is homosexuality conducive to fidelity? Now, there are many other reasons to show that homosexuality marriage is not a good fit for society, and we have looked at them, but fidelity or lack of fidelity is another factor.

Male Homosexuality: Promiscuous or Faithful?

Mass Resistance, quotes Homosexual author William Aaron in his book, Straight:

In the gay lifestyle fidelity is almost impossible. Since part of the compulsion of homosexuality seems to be a need on the part of the homophile to “absorb” masculinity from his sexual partners, he must be constantly on the lookout for [new partners]. Constantly the most successful homophile “marriages” are those where there is an agreement between the two to have affairs on the side while maintaining the semblance of permanence in their living arrangement.[26]
Journal of Sex Research, available online says:
Almost three quarters of the older men had either 1 (28.5) or between 2-10 (44.9) partners during the preceding six months. For the older men, the modal range for number of male sexual partners ever was 101-500 (21.6); 2.7% had had sex with 1 partner only, and between 10.2 & 15.7 only; and between 10.2% and 15.7% reported having had sex with a number of partners indicated by the following ranges: 2-10, 21-50, 51-100, 501-1.[27]
The National Institutes of Health. In this study of 380 gay men, not including transgender, reflect breaking promises. Many don’t even want to make the promise to fidelity. 13% had unprotected anal intercourse with an unknown partner, just in the previous 3 months.[28] This is even when he has a steady partner!!

The next thing I want to briefly look at is a study on homosexual partnerships in Holland, that was done in 2003. The period covered in this comprehensive look was from 1995 to 2003. Here is a quote from the study:

the mean rate of acquiring casual partners (range 16–28 for singles and 6–10 for men with a steady partner);

the mean frequencies of URAI and UIAI among casual partners (αa, αb, range 2.5–7.5%) and among steady partners (φa, φb, range 7.5–22.5);

the mean duration of steady partnerships (0.75–2.25 years) and then the rate of acquiring steady partners was calculated as ρ = σ + 2μ;[29]

So, the fact is that of those studied, those who are concerned about getting AIDS, still practiced a high amount of sexual activity.

Lesbian Sexuality

Studies on homosexuality focuses for the most part on male homosexuals, as that population is more numerous. So, less research on lesbianism does mean we have much less data. I do want to at least briefly look at Lesbian sexuality. Mass Resistance points to another study from a National Survey of Family Growth:

1.3 percent of females identify as Lesbian, and 5.5% identify as Bisexual, in the study from the period 2011-2013, as opposed to a previous study, where it was 1.2 % of females 18-44, and 3.9 considered bisexual, in 2007-2010. In the “homosexual or bisexual” group, a higher percentage of women had ever had opposite-sex sexual contact (89.7%) compared with men (67.9%). However, the issue is that Lesbians are much more likely to have had heterosexual relationships, and more likely to still have heterosexual relationships after identifying themselves as Lesbians: [30]
Lesbians are more likely to be promiscuous, have sex with males, regardless whether they have mates, than heterosexual females with mates. They still identify themselves as Lesbians after heterosexual sex.

This is with 3,720 sample women. So that means of those who are only attracted to Lesbians, in their view, still have had vaginal intercourse with an opposite partner 86.3 percent of them. It shows the fluidity of Lesbians, and that their sexual attraction when they say are attracted only to the same sex, also are open to sex with opposite sex.

The Medical Consequences of Homosexual Sex

This section will look at the fact that homosexual sex leads to many health problems. However, I will only refer to the more known ‘normal’ two ways that homosexuals, male and female have sex, and the medical consequences of such activity.

Anal Sex

The first thing I want to look at is the normal way that homosexual males have sex: that is anal sex. The homosexual lobby has successfully pushed the CDC to minimize the negative physical consequences of anal sex. From 1988 to 2009, on the Food and Drugs Administration web site: Under the heading: Are condoms strong enough for anal intercourse, wrote:

The Surgeon General (C. Everett Koop, Surgeon General 1982-1989) has said, "Condoms provide some protection, but anal intercourse is simply too dangerous to practice"

Condoms may be more likely to break during anal intercourse than during other types of sex because of the greater amount of friction and other stresses involved.

Even if the condom doesn't break, anal intercourse is very risky because it can cause tissue in the rectum to tear and bleed. These tears allow disease germs to pass more easily from one partner to the other.[31]

The truth that anal sex with or without a condom was too dangerous to practice was taught by the government. Now, it made this one-way statement without giving further evaluation. Making the statement without elaboration is not giving a full education. The Homosexual lobby pushed to get rid of this truth, and did get their way. Obama, a homosexual rights activist president, appointed people who pushed to get rid of this truth. In 2009, the FDA warning that anal sex was too dangerous to practice went away.

The FDA still says the following:

Condoms may be more likely to break during anal intercourse than during other types of sex because of the greater amount of friction and other stresses involved.[32]
Condoms are in no way foolproof and can break during anal intercourse, are more unreliable than with heterosexual sex.

A doctor notes the following problems with having anal sex:

Anal intercourse is the sine qua non of sex for many gay men.22 Yet human physiology makes it clear that the body was not designed to accommodate this activity. The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In comparison, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an "exit-only" passage….

The list of diseases found with extraordinary frequency among male homosexual practitioners as a result of anal intercourse is alarming:

Anal Cancer
Chlamydia trachomatis
Giardia lamblia
Herpes simplex virus
Human immunodeficiency virus
Human papilloma virus
Isospora belli
Viral hepatitis types B & C
Anal intercourse also puts men at significant risk for anal cancer. Anal cancer is the result of infection with some subtypes of human papilloma virus (HPV), which are known viral carcinogens. Thus, the prevalence of anal cancer among gay men is of great concern. For those with AIDS, the rates are doubled.

The CDC basically confirms the danger of anal sex, and the dangers it presents to its adherents

The data, presented at CDC's 2010 National STD Prevention Conference, finds that the rate of new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women. The range was 522-989 cases of new HIV diagnoses per 100,000 MSM vs. 12 per 100,000 other men and 13 per 100,000 women. The rate of primary and secondary syphilis among MSM is more than 46 times that of other men and more than 71 times that of women, the analysis says. The range was 91¬173 cases per 100,000 MSM vs. 2 per 100,000 other men and 1 per 100,000 women.[34]
The CDC tells us that homosexuals and Lesbians are 40 and 44 times as likely to come down with AIDS. Also, homosexual males and Lesbians are 46 & 71 times more likely to come down with syphilis. Among MSM, unprotected anal sex, more than 50% practiced it at least once in the past 12 months. The anus is not a sexual instrument and the promotion of this causes problems for those who practice it.

Oral Sex

Just as anal sex has no reproductive potential, it is antithetical to procreation, and is practiced only to provide physical pleasure but provides absolutely no possibility of procreation, so is oral sex.

STIs that are passed through skin to skin contact can be gotten or given through oral sex. Although less common, HIV also can be passed from vaginal fluids to any cuts or sores in the mouth, especially if the person on the receiving end has their period. Using a latex dam is an easy way to reduce your risks. Known Risks: herpes I and II, syphilis. Possible Risks: HIV & hepatitis B (giving oral sex, if there is menstrual blood)? Unknown Risks: HPV, chlamydia, gonorrhea [35]
So, this site which promotes homosexuality, admits that the common practice of homosexuals, male and female, put people at risk for various conditions. They admitted that oral sex, which often many people think is something safe, is not safe. This practice not only divorces the act of sex from procreation, but makes the other person a sexual object, while at the same time endangers the health of both..

The CDC makes this admission of the danger of oral sex:

Other STDs, such as syphilis, herpes, gonorrhea and chlamydia, can be transmitted during oral sex. Anilingus can also transmit hepatitis A and B, intestinal parasites like Giardia, and bacteria like E. coli. [36]
What is the conclusion on what is safest? The CDC says:
Mutual monogamy means that you agree to be sexually active with only one person, who has agreed to be sexually active only with you. Being in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner is one of the most reliable ways to avoid STDs. But you must both be certain you are not infected with STDs. It is important to have an open and honest conversation with your partner.[37]
The conclusion from the government is that mutual monogamy is the only thing that can protect one from sexually transmitted diseases.

Lesbian Sexually Transmitted Diseases

In discussing this issue with same sex right advocates, it is often brought to my attention that yea, HIV and other STDs, is transmitted by male homosexuals, but Lesbian activity is safe. Many Lesbians continue to have sex with males, open themselves to sexually transmitted diseases receiving through heterosexual contact. Here though, I want to look at what Lesbians open themselves up to when they practice Lesbian sex.

Office on Women’s Health says the following:

Bacterial vaginosis (vaj-uh-NOH-suhs) (BV). BV is more common in lesbian and bisexual women than in other women. The reason for this is unknown. BV often occurs in both members of lesbian couples.

Chlamydia (kluh-MI-dee-uh) Chlamydia is caused by bacteria. It's spread through vaginal, oral, or anal sex. It can damage the reproductive organs, such as the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. The symptoms of chlamydia are often mild — in fact, it's known as a "silent infection." Because the symptoms are mild, you can pass it to someone else without even knowing you have it.

Genital herpes. Genital herpes is an STI caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) or type 2 (HSV-2). Most genital herpes is caused by HSV-2. HSV-1 can cause genital herpes… You can spread oral herpes to the genitals through oral sex.

Human papillomavirus (pap-uh-LOH-muh-vahy-ruhs) (HPV). HPV can cause genital warts. If left untreated, HPV can cause abnormal changes on the cervix that can lead to cancer. Most people don't know they're infected with HPV because they don't have symptoms.[38]

So, we see Lesbian sex not being safe sex.

AIDS, the Disease of Homosexuals

Who’s at risk for AIDS? A study cited by the CDC looks at the probability of various assorted groups of catching AIDS. Currently there are 1.2 million, and according to the survey, here is the likelihood of various people getting AIDS.


Lifetime risk was 1 in 68 for males and 1 in 253 for females. Lifetime risk for men was 1 in 22 for blacks, 1 in 51 for Hispanic/Latinos, and 1 in 140 for whites; and for women was 1 in 54 for blacks, 1 in 256 for Hispanic/Latinas, and 1 in 941 for whites. By risk group, the highest risk was among men who have sex with men (1 in 6) and the lowest was among male heterosexuals (1 in 524).[39]

So, AIDS is much more likely to happen to men who have sex with men HIV now has medications that can treat those with HIV so it doesn’t develop to full blown AIDS. However, the treatment is expensive, and not all are aware that they have AIDS. What does the Center for Disease Control say?:
• Gay and bisexual men are more severely affected by HIV than any other group in the United States…….

• From 2005 to 2014, HIV diagnoses decreased in the United States by 19% overall, but increased 6% among all gay and bisexual men, driven by increases among African American and Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men.

In 2014: • Gay and bisexual men accounted for 83% (29,418) of the estimated new HIV diagnoses among all males aged 13 and older and 67% of the total estimated new diagnoses in the United States.[40]

Homosexual men, prone to disease, again because of anal sex.

Can Homosexuals Change?

Can Homosexuals change? Can Homosexuals become Heterosexuals? At a minimum, evidence shows it is possible for homosexuals to become abstinent. In addition, some Homosexuals can actually become heterosexuals. Historically we have seen change for homosexuality was sought by homosexuals themselves. Homosexuals have higher rates of suicide, drug abuse, are heavier, have alcohol abuse, etc. This can not be blamed on supposed ‘homophobia.’ No matter the rationalization, blame for a homosexual beating his lover can not reasonably be put at the feet of someone who thinks that the act of homosexuality is wrong. Society has put homosexuality on a par with heterosexuality. There are religious groups within various churches that have given the ok on homosexuality. However, the groups that give help to homosexuals who attempt to leave the lifestyle of homosexual sex, be it male to male or female, have been labeled as unrealistic, and even seen as ‘homophobic.‘ People who try to leave that lifestyle are labeled as self-haters, and are all labeled as failures. Homosexual rights organizations castigate such organizations, such as National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH). This was founded by Joseph Nicolosi. He unfortunately has passed away. Science has been bullied into accepting the legitimacy of the homosexual lifestyle, against the overwhelming history of seeing homosexuality as something that can be treated. Freedom needs to allow such organizations to exist.

What is Reparative Therapy?

I do want to go over a little scientifically, what the term ‘reparative therapy’ means. It has been denigrated by the homosexual rights groups as fraudulent, but it matches some of the data that was looked at earlier. Prior to any dispute between ‘gay’ and ‘traditional marriage’, children who turned homosexual had issues that arose during childhood that would impact his or her outlook on sex. Doctor Elizabeth Mobley wrote a book on this issue, and I want to take some highlights from this book to show its psychological foundation (Much more is in my larger paper). Mobley’s theory is that there is an incomplete development of the homosexual affections that tends to lead towards a sexual acting out:

Sexual sin is contrary to God’s intention, but homosexuality, although often an occasion for sexual sin, is essentially a state of incomplete development. It is the incompletion that is contrary to God’s intention here. Homosexual acts are prohibited, not because they repudiate the man-woman relationship, but because sexual expression is not appropriate to pre-adult relationships … If sexuality is understood more broadly, in terms of gender identity and not just sexual activity, the homosexual condition may well be seen against the background of male-female complementarity, in the way that has just been suggested. What is ‘fallen’ in the homosexual condition is ‘the fact that since people have a complete same-sex identity (homosexuality). The goal is the attainment of a complete same-sex identity, and, where the process of growth has been checked, the reparation drive of same-sex love is the solution to the problem of underlying deficits.‘[41]
Deliverance from the sexual expression of homosexual needs is right and proper. But It must be clear that such deliverance applies to inappropriate means of meeting such needs, not to the needs themselves. Otherwise to speak of deliverance from homosexual temptation is tantamount to saying that a child should be ‘delivered’ from its normal love-need for the parent of the same sex!![42]
Moberly continues:
The Bible affirms the propriety of same-sex love, understood as the love-need of a child for his or her parent. When deficits occur substitute relationships for parental care are in God’s redemptive plan, just as parental relationships are in his creative plan.[43]
Unmet needs are to be met-but without eroticization. It is the sexual expression of pre-adult psychological needs that is unacceptable, and it is in this sense that one may say that God did not intend homosexuality…[44]
If the needs are truly fulfilled in the whole way, Moberly posits, then one can then orient towards a satisfying heterosexual relationship. Of course, for Christians that would be in the bonds of a heterosexual marriage.

There is a same-sex deficit because of an incomplete parental, father-son relationship, or for lesbians, mother-daughter relationship. So, the attachment to someone of the same sex, in a non-sexual manner, is incumbent to get towards healing.

Nicholas Cummings, a psychologist, who supports Homosexual rights, and is indeed sensitive to their outlook, in an article from USA Today gives the following, revealing outlook on the issue:

Of the roughly 18,000 gay and lesbian patients whom we treated over 25 years through Kaiser, I believe that most had satisfactory outcomes...Of the patients I oversaw who sought to change their orientation, hundreds were successful.

I believe that our rate of success with reorientation was relatively high because we were selective in recommending therapeutic change efforts only to those who identified themselves as highly motivated and were clinically assessed as having a high probability of success.

Patients over politics…..

But contending that all same-sex attraction is immutable is a distortion of reality. Attempting to characterize all sexual reorientation therapy as "unethical" violates patient choice and gives an outside party a veto over patients' goals for their own treatment. [45]

So a secular psychotherapist admits the idea that all same-sex attraction is immutable is a distortion of reality.

Next I want to look at a few examples of those who’ve turned away from homosexual activity. (In my larger study, more documentation is found).

Anthony Falzarano

As Dr. Moberly noted, one can not just marry a heterosexual and thinks that cures one from homosexual temptations. Falzarano, after 9 years of living the homosexual lifestyle, because he wanted to have a family, decided that he’d do exactly that, went right into a heterosexual marriage without getting any psychological help, which led to multiple problems.

He eventually sought help in a support group, that read Scripture then he went to a Catholic Church in Washington DC, which ultimately dealt with homosexuals who wanted to turn away from what was seen as sexual sin. Doctor Elizabeth Moberly for example spoke at a meeting, and had colleagues that struggled against homosexual sin, and had fellowship.[46] Many of the things that were mentioned earlier as things that contributed to his homosexual attraction were brought up and dealt with. [47] One example of the healing is his relationship with his Father:

One of the ways that He allowed me to experience important healing in my life was to have three good years of relationship with my father before he died of a heart attack at the age of 72. Those three years made up for the 30 unresponsive years that I was estranged from him. [48]
He wrote about having to detach from his dependence on his mother that had thwarted his masculine advancement. [49] (citation in my larger paper): He progressed:  
I had to move on to the next stage of healing, which I was bonding with other men. This was crucial!...I now needed to bond with men without wanting to sleep with them. I needed to see them as peers. I didn’t have to envy men anymore because I was one of them all the time. I know that because my masculinity is intact, I could now see men as my equals even if they were more attractive, more intelligent or more polished. Praise God!....One of the last things I experienced that convinced me I was healed was that I was no longer “turned on” by the same sex.[50]

Joseph Sciambra

Sciambra had delved into pornography starting an early age, through his older brother. Religiously he was brought up Catholic, but it wasn’t all that important to him. When he got a little older he started noticing Boy George, with all the lip-gloss, being more beautiful than female counterparts, and he started to become attracted to the males, and question his sexual identity.[51]

He eventually became a male homosexual pornographic movie star.

After his rampant homosexual activity, he got sick, and in his desperation, he called out “Please God, help me please.” He then went through the rosary, which has 15 decades, (now 20), which relates through Christ’s birth, death, life, and resurrection. He then went to confession.[52] He went into a Courage meeting who was visited by a young Catholic priest. The priest preached the truth of the gospel.

Despite arriving in the middle of his talk, I quickly figured out that this was no pablum preaching from my childhood. I heard words such as the devil, Satan, demons and possession. I thought, “Who is this?” I listened intently. He continued to speak about his priestly interest in the occult and how he already helped those influenced by demonic spirits …

.. but as the stole touched me, I immediately collapsed to the floor. I then noticed a strong pulling on my neck as if a chain or leash were being tugged upon. The force was so strong that I remember being partially dragged across the floor while my head violently bent in the other direction. Weird voices emerged from somewhere within. But I could also hear myself, in my own voice, saying, “Stop it!” What the priest was doing, I cannot recall. This went on for a few minutes, then it ended. I felt a heavy force leaving my body, then a sense of incredible peace and joy.[53]

He threw himself back into spirituality and had time to go to his parents’ house, who returned to the spiritual life. He did a lot of physical exercise to get his mind off of the temptations, solitarily at first. He then, encouraged by a priest, got control of the ‘custody of the eye.’ With him pornography had been his entrance to the whole thing of sexual addiction. So, stopping pornography was the big thing out of it.[54]

His solution was a spiritual:

I had to go back. I pushed through the false idols of lust and hate that I had created, and went straight to the little boy whimpering in the corner. He was me. I took his hand and led him to the house of the Holy Family. For this is where I recommend all men, go or straight, go to when they are seeking a refuge form the inner battle of lust.[55]
Turning to Jesus, when he attempted to recover from his addictions he had to recall his children issues: His attempt to find masculinity in a sexual way severed that relationship with Christ. In order to come to Christ, he had to sever that addiction to pornography.

Doctor Nicolosi, who did much work in reparative therapy, and helped many people to turn away from homosexual activity, had an impact directly on Sciambra himself:

Sciambra called Nicolosi. What was supposed to be 15 minutes turned into an hour, and there were more hours to come and Nicolosi didn’t charge for any of them. The heart of Sciambra’s problem and the heart of Nicolosi’s therapy were about the hidden pain that Sciambra and other gay men carry around with them. Sciambra described it this way,” I couldn’t escape the feeling that every man in my life had rejected me when I was a child. And it was that still frightened and friendless boy who needed help; except he never got it. Instead, he was told he was gay.” ..

What Nicolosi proposed was something different and, according to Sciambra, “radical”; an exploration of Sciambra’s past. He says, “All homosexuality accomplished was in multiplying my ghosts.” With Nicolosi he revisited “the annoying sissy boy of my youth, the lonely child I learned to hate who I had dragged around from one boyfriend to one bathhouse after another.” Sciambra says Nicolosi helped him not to be ashamed of that boy, helped to heal that boy’s wounds, and “finally to embrace that boy, and then to accept the boy was me.” [56]

When he was able to have non- sexual relationships with males from Courage, his masculinness was affirmed without sex being involved. That helped to greatly diminish his want for men in a sexual manner.

David Morrison

Davie Morrison, absent father, overbearing mother, turned to homosexuality. He actually became a young homosexual activist.

Morrison believed in God, and he looked to reconcile his belief in God, with his practicing homosexuality, with Scripture. Morrison first bought into gay Christian theology.

Then Morrison would look at rationalizations that ‘gay’ theologians had put to explain away what would seem to mean clear condemnation of homosexuality, and bought the arguments, but even he recognized as of that point, the rationalizations, were shaky for sure.[57] What got him moving was reading the famed Christian Dietrich Bonhoeffer who suffered death in Nazi Germany, trying to hide Jews. When he saw what Bonhoeffer encountered, service to Christ or death, Bonhoeffer chose service to Christ.

Confronted with Christ, Bonhoeffer’s work made clear that a man or woman has but two possible choices: I will follow and serve or I will not. Nothing else, if discussed honestly, is possible.[58]
He chose to follow Christ. What happened in his relationship with his boyfriend/lover? Upon reading Bonhoeffer:
Confronted with the truth, I knew I had to choose. Love Christ and real faith demanded that I cease treating my partner, or anyone else, as an object for sexual evaluation or pleasure. God meant human beings to be so much more than that. Chastity, I came to see, made up a significant part of my Cross and Christ had called me to myself….I went to my partner of so many years and said, “I love you. Could we please not do this [have sex] any more…My decision, made unilaterally, shocked my partner and began a year long conversation about the roots and foundations of our relationship.[59]
He then decided to go the Catholic faith, as there was little support in the Episcopalian/Anglican church for chastity. He joined ‘Courage’, an organization that supports chastity, without necessarily mandating that the followers attempt to become heterosexual. He also accepted the worship, and the Eucharist, and the historicity of the Catholic Faith that helped him turn to Christ within the Catholic Church.[60]

He developed a relationship with a man friend who was into ‘manly activities’ such as mountain biking, backpacking trips and other activities. Doing things with men, that had no sexual thought or activity that helped him to move away from the homosexual proclivity, and he cared for him, with absolutely no pretension of homosexual sex behind that, which is not anything that he had experienced before.[61]

After a long experience of self-examination, Morrison noted, yes others may not experience the healing that he has, but he notes:

I have written what has happened because it is true and because someone needs to step forward and testify to the reality of God’s power in an individual life. I can’t say why I have experienced the healing I have. I don’t know why others have not.. But I must testify that despite the complicated web of wounds both real and imagined, deep longings and insincerity, doubts, failures, and desires, Christ stepped forward with the knowledge, resources, and the wise and loving friends I need to break free. For this I am deeply grateful.[62]
In essence, he left the homosexual culture, chose Christ.

Janet Boynes

Janet Boynes had been sexually assaulted by a step-Father and an altar boy. She did have a mother who was very harsh with and beat her. She had been lesbian, and exclusively lesbian, for 14 years. She knew from her conscience that something was wrong with female to female sex, but when she was thinking about stopping it, she’d go back to it. What changed Boynes? Now Boynes had ‘accepted her Lord and Savior’ Jesus Christ, about 20 years before this point in time. In any case, she met someone who encouraged her to go to her Assemblies of God church, which did not accept homosexuality. But that person did not talk down to her when she confessed to her lesbian activity. She was in a lesbian relationship with someone named Carrie. Now in the past in her lesbian relationships went rocky she’d fill it with a different Lesbian affair, this time she started reading Scriptures and bible studies. She met a person who she told about her lesbian activity tendencies, and since she had encouraged to change it, the Pastor would let her speak, give a testimony, when of course she hadn’t even properly dealt with her Lesbian leanings.

So, after the talk someone from her bible study told her, Jenny, she needed to break off her relationship with her lesbian girlfriend.

I still couldn’t believe they had invited me into their home to live with their children and be a part of their family I learned from how men and women should treat each other, the importance of spending time with your family and about family values. I also learned how to forgive. In a very real way, my experience at Mike and Jenny’s house was like a second childhood for me. It helped heal and restore me from so many wounds I had suffered in my first childhood.[63]
She learned to develop relationships with women in a way she had never experienced. Whereas she developed relationships with women as a lesbian, the sex still surrounded that relationship. But when she started going to the bible study at the Assembly of God Church, something developed that had not developed in her relationships with lesbians. She lived with a heterosexual family had a major healing effect on her. She saw a husband and wife in love with each other, and kids, noticed of course their fights, but how a family life responded, totally different from what she termed the horrors of her childhood:
Piece by piece, I saw the shattered fragments of my self-image, my sexuality, and my spiritually restored and healed. Even though it lasted only a year, staying with a Christian family was a second childhood for me. It didn’t erase all my bad memories, but it showed me how things were supposed to be. During that year, I was able to experience real family love and it made a difference in my life.[ 64]
She created her own ministry, Janet Boynes Ministries. That site offers help to those who are homosexual, and offers help in achieving freedom to what she calls the enslavement to homosexual wants. She offers the ability to leave homosexuality. Her ministry is available here Janet Boynes Ministries.

She confirmed to me, that despite being in the lesbian life for 14 years, and in that life, she no longer is tempted to go back to that activity. She understands that would be turning her back on God, and she in no way wants to do that. She said she has received death threats from those opposing her ministry. But her offer of help to those who have same sex attraction goes on.

So, in conclusion we see that there are ways to change same-sex attracted people. There have been diverse backgrounds, there have been similarities. There have been those brought up who were rich, those who have been brought up poor. We’ve noticed in studies, even conducted by homosexual advocates, there was no sexual exclusivity, in these same-sex sexual relationships. There was an emptiness for all of them, and as they could not find satisfaction in their lives, and these people sought to turn away from the homosexual activity. They all proclaimed the grace given by Jesus.

We did find earlier that through psychological counseling, without even a directly spiritual outlook, it was possible for some to turn away from an active homosexual lifestyle. In this section, we have looked at some people who were active homosexuals, and have either at a minimum at least stopped their homosexual activity, and some developed heterosexual interests, within the bounds of a morally Christian life. It took a lot of work for them to get it so the homosexual desires would be lessened, and in some cases, expunged. But it was God that gave them the grace that would enable them to do so. These four had, as an extra incentive to turn away from the active homosexual lifestyle, was a desire to have a relationship with God. All wanted a relationship with God, and saw that this homosexual activity severs that relationship.

The Comparison to Religion, Blacks, and Civil Rights

When we say that homosexuality is wrong and should not be promoted as acceptable behavior in society and people with religious conviction should not be forced to provide services that validate their homosexual activity, we are told that Christians are denying civil rights to homosexuals. The one thing I do want to go through, is the whole premise that was accepted by the Supreme Court, that laid the foundation for the ruling.

The US Supreme Court Obergefell ruling accepted the born that way idea, without noting any scientific evidence. Here is what the Supreme Court said in 2015:

1) The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity. The petitioners in these cases seek to find that liberty by marrying someone of the same sex and having their marriages deemed lawful on the same terms and conditions as marriages between persons of the opposite sex....

The petitioners acknowledge this history but contend that these cases cannot end there. Were their intent to demean the revered idea and reality of marriage, the petitioners’ claims would be of a different order. But that is neither their purpose nor their submission. To the contrary, it is the enduring importance of marriage that underlies the petitioners’ contentions…. And their immutable nature dictates that same-sex marriage is their only real path to this profound commitment. And their immutable nature dictates that same-sex marriage is their only real path to this profound commitment. …Only in more recent years have psychiatrists and others recognized that sexual orientation is both a normal expression of human sexuality and immutable. See Brief for American Psychological Association et al. as Amici Curiae 7–17.[65]

The talk about the rights are built on a premise that one is born that way. It was decided 5-4 with the majority ultimately believing that homosexuality was immutable. Of course, if one’s orientation is that it is immutable, if one is made in such a way that those who are homosexual, by their nature, is designed to have sex with someone of the same sex, then who can hold them accountable?

The premise that is behind this ruling, tagged in this huge decision, takes for granted that a homosexual’s orientation is immutable. This supposedly is the basis for the Supreme Court saying that homosexuality is immutable.

The Supreme Court referenced this brief as a reason for homosexuality being immutable. I invite anybody to read this brief, between pages 7-17. [66] There is nothing in the reference that says anything about immutability.

Amy Contrada notes:

There’s a big problem with the Court’s “immutable” claim: The homosexual-affirming American Psychiatric Association (as recently as June 2015) stated that “sexual orientation” is not innate, but is fluid, developing or changing over time. People are not “born that way” (as “gay,” lesbian, or bisexual); and there is no science to back up the belief that they are. Here is the APA statement:

"Some people believe that sexual orientation is innate and fixed; however, sexual orientation develops across a person’s lifetime. Individuals maybe become aware at different points in their lives that they are heterosexual, gay, lesbian, or bisexual. … No one knows what causes heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality. … Currently there is a renewed interest in searching for biological etiologies for homosexuality. However, to date there are no replicated scientific studies supporting any specific biological etiology for homosexuality." [67]

Since the issue is civil rights, it would be a good idea on the issue to look at the icon of the civil rights movement, Martin Luther King. Here he responded to a boy who had homosexual feelings:
Question: My problem is different from the ones most people have. I am a boy, but I feel about boys the way I ought to feel about girls. I don’t want my parents to know about me. What can I do? Is there any place where I can go for help?

Answer: Your problem is not at all an uncommon one. However, it does require careful attention. The type of feeling that you have toward boys is probably not an innate tendency, but something that has been culturally acquired. Your reasons for adopting this habit have now been consciously suppressed or unconsciously repressed. Therefore, it is necessary to deal with this problem by getting back to some of the experiences and circumstances that lead to the habit. In order to do this I would suggest that you see a good psychiatrist who can assist you in bringing to the forefront of conscience all of those experiences and circumstances that lead to the habit. You are already on the right road toward a solution, since you honestly recognize the problem and have a desire to solve it.[68]

So, we see the Reverend/Doctor almost sounding like Dr. Joseph Nicolosi. One needs to speak to a psychologist, to see what happened to make him come out with homosexual feelings. There must be a self-examination of ones’ childhood. You want to find the ‘solution’, according to Doctor/Reverend King. Nowadays, saying that, Reverend/Doctor King would be termed bigoted.

Rev. Martin Luther King’s Christianity, was religious at its roots, and much of those who supported desegregation were those who were Christian based. The roots of getting rid of desegregation, as well as its precursor, slavery, the movement starting to overthrow it was started by Wilberforce in England, was Christian based. All people are equal, and do not deserve to be treated differently based on the color of their skin. An activity that leads to more suicide, alcohol abuse, partner abuse, is not something equivalent of an identity of the rights of Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, etc.

Black Americans themselves do not equate, civil rights of blacks to those of homosexuals. A poll, done in 2017, show Black Americans see themselves in stark contrast between rights for people who are born black, and homosexuals. They for the most part believe that homosexuality is not something one is born with. 55% see homosexual rights as different from black civil rights, only 28% see it as similar.[69]

The percentage of homosexuals in the United States, has gone up recently. There are varying numbers in different polls/studies. Although a study by the CDC, with 34,000, it was only 1.6 % homosexual with approximately 0.7% being bisexual. In my recent study of the issue, that was the general idea, 2 % males, females 1%. That CDC study is available here:[70] There was no breakdown by race. There was another study done, the percentage was 3.4 percent overall of the population identified as homosexual. This is a huge poll of 120,000 people done by Gallup. October 18, 2012, Blacks were at 4.6 % of the population as homosexual, as opposed to 3.2 % of whites. [71] If there was no difference because of missing fathers or so, then you would expect the ratio to be about the same.

How does this homosexuality among Black Americans affect their health? A couple of CDC studies show a devastatingly bad outcome for Black Americans:

At the end of 2013, 498,400 African Americans were living with HIV (40% of everyone living with HIV in the US), and 1 in 8 did not know they were infected…
In 2015, 48% (8,702) of those diagnosed with AIDS in the United States were African Americans.
Black Americans, 12% of the population, account for 40% of those who are currently diagnosed with AIDS, and almost half of the new diagnoses are also Black Americans. A majority of those with new infections of AIDS, of course are homosexual.

HIV has been devastating to the black community, but most importantly the black homosexual community:

Gay and bisexual men continue to be most affected by the HIV epidemic in the U.S. At current rates, 1 in 6 MSM will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, including 1 in 2 black MSM, 1 in 4 Latino MSM, and 1 in 11 white MSM.

African Americans are by far the most affected racial or ethnic group with a lifetime HIV risk of 1 in 20 for men (compared to 1 in 132 for whites) and 1 in 48 for women (compared to 1 in 880 for whites).[73]

Here is what the Anti-Violence Report notes:
LGBTQ people of color were more likely to report experiencing physical violence, discrimination, threats or intimidation, and harassment as a result of IPV. LGBTQ people of color were also more likely to experience IPV incidents in public spaces. LGBTQ people of color were 1.6 times more likely to experience physical violence, 2.2 times more likely to experience discrimination, 1.9 times more likely to experience threats or intimidation, and 1.6 times more likely to experience harassment within IPV relationships. In addition, LGBTQ and HIV-affected people of color were more likely to experience IPV incidents in streets or public spaces.[74]
So, we see black homosexuals are more likely to experience physical violence than whites. Blacks turning to homosexuality is devastating the community.

Janet Boynes makes a couple of notations that helped to show the difference between the treatment of homosexuals in the 50s & 60s, and those of blacks in achieving civil rights:

I was born black. I became a lesbian. They are not the same. I did not choose the color of my skin. I did choose to enter a lesbian relationship and to live a homosexual lifestyle for fourteen years. I also chose to leave that lifestyle, but I cannot choose to stop being black. There is a difference. The color of my skin is an immutable quality of my being while my lesbianism was a deliberate series of actions resulting in a lifestyle choice.[75]
This look at the issue is agreed upon by churches within the Black American community.
“We will not follow men who would rather believe a lie than the truth. We cannot and we will not endorse anyone who blatantly blasphemies the Word of God and leads people in the wrong direction”, states the Rev. Dr. Randolph Thomas, senior pastor of Greater Bethlehem Church and president of the Westside Minister’s Alliance.[76]
The Pastors were in support of marriage only being limited to man and women. They were in agreement with the people who said that that was not equivalent to the struggle that blacks endured, and in fact still endure, to some extent.

Darryl Foster is currently a pastor. He turned away from homosexuality as well. He has a ministry. One part of the online book I want to refer to as he refers to other blacks who have left the homosexual lifestyle:

Is God calling other ex-homosexuals? Yes, I believe He is. He called Pastor Donnie McClurkin (read his book “Eternal Victim/Eternal Victor!”). Down in Miami, He called Miriam Passmore out of 20 years as a lesbian “stud” and “drag king” performer. He called Chris Johnson, Sr.* out of the lifestyle and even with HIV, God blessed him with a beautiful wife and three wonderful children. These men and women, along with many others, are in ministry to meet the needs of brothers and sisters who are falling through the religious cracks.[77]
Jackie Hill Perry was a rapper, turned away from homosexuality. She is now a Christian rapper/poet. Here is her story: Ex-gay hip-hop artist Jackie Hill-Perry Other examples are given in my larger paper.

No one can tell us that Janet Boynes, Terry Foster, Jackie Hill Perry, etc. whether they married or not, did not experience a change. They did. They are different from what they were before.


I have done a study of a lot of different aspects of this homosexual issue, and how this relates to the society as a whole. First, I went over the fact that marriage is foundational to a society. I did refer to Jesus as laying a foundation of marriage, when he said that man would be with woman, and that bond should never be broken. Procreation was at the heart of Jesus words, when we look at the backdrop of his referral to Genesis. People who do not accept Christianity may poopoo that, but Jesus formula of one man and one woman, making children, and parenting those children, is good for society. Children are relegated as unessential in a homosexual marriage by definition because when a same-sex person has sex, there is no possibility of a child by nature. For children to come in a same-sex marriage, either they come from a broken-up marriage, or if they do invitro fertilization, the means to get that baby, it results in the destruction of human life. A married mother and father is better for a child. In the first comprehensive study of the effects of children being brought up by same sex parents, as opposed to heterosexual parents, the results were much worse.

The APA changed homosexuality from a disorder in 1973 to ‘normal’. That was due to bullying by the homosexual rights activists, nothing scientific. I looked at an amalgamation of studies which showed that genetics is not a determiner of one’s attraction. Now, this is not saying that there is no biological influence, there are a huge variety of factors, including, either/or, sometimes both/and, child abuse, gender identity issues, and a bad relationship with the same sex parent, factors into same-sex attraction.

Homosexuals are more likely to commit suicide, abuse one other both sexually and physically, and are more likely even to commit murder on their partner. They are more likely to take drugs and be alcoholic, admitted by them. In today’s society everyone is told to not to belittle homosexuals. Now in the study of those who did become homosexual, as children they were in fact belittled as sissies, and so forth. No one deserves to be labeled that. The schools now say that homosexual activity is ok. 46 times the higher rate of acquiring venereal disease, the high rate of AIDS, use of drugs, abusive relationships, alcohol, high suicide rates, is a fact of life, but is ignored or downplayed by those who educate children in public schools. As they are experiencing all of these issues, that does indeed tell us that there is a psychological issue at the heart of being homosexual

Then I looked at all the fact that in a marriage, one thing that is paramount in marriage, is sexual exclusivity with the other person. It is to be expected in a heterosexual marriage that one will be faithful to the other person. Homosexual coupling does not. Monogamy in name only. The homosexual practices, even limited to the ‘normal’ way of same-sex practices, are dangerous, to not only males, but females as well. We saw a government sponsored study showed that homosexuals are 46 times more likely to be infected with sexually transmitted diseases. Anal sex, the normal way that same sex males have sex, has been identified by the government with or without condoms, as ‘too dangerous’ to practice. Why put on equal terms, a practice that is not only spiritually devastating, but ‘too dangerous’ to practice.

I have examined several witnesses, white and black, Protestant and Catholic, who had turned to same-sex activity, they found it did not bring them happiness. I’ve examined and recounted people who have turned to Christ, away from homosexual sex. Parenting issues were involved in all of them when they had turned to homosexuality. They all turned away from homosexuality and to Christ, and using various ways, started to develop same-sex friendships in a non-sexual way. They have changed their outlook, they no longer practice same-sex sex. They have found in Jesus Christ, freedom, from what they considered bondage to an activity that did not bring them happiness. Some are happy to be celibate. Christ is their foundation, but they had to work at it, through the work of God’s grace, to turn away from the temptations. Those who have succeeded have found, in Christ, a freedom they had never had, when they had been practicing same-sex activity.

Now, there are no doubt many homosexuals, who will say that they are happy with their same-sex attractions, and they are happy with their outlook. However, even with AMA and APA saying what that what they do is normal, it is not. They still are more likely to turn to drugs, commit suicide, or psychologically and/or physically abuse their mate. There are many sexual practices that are too risqué to recount on a Christian web site. There are too many societal issues created by the acceptance of homosexual activity. I have shown that the reasoning put forth by the Supreme Court was based on a false premise: That homosexuality was immutable. The APA itself did not even argue that it was immutable in their own brief that the Court referred to. It did not say what the Supreme Court said it said. The reasoning was faulty. Also, as Janet Boynes noted, she was an ex-gay, as well as Darryl Foster and others, who turned away from homosexuality, but never became ex-black. One is immutable the other is not. These examples of people turning away from homosexuality, are real.

Although I have not touched on religious freedom, a tidbit show that the promotion of homosexuality does curtail religious freedom. Christians believe that homosexuality is sin. Christianity believes that the only ones that can mate are male and female. However, Christian Match has been forced to make their service available for homosexuals. The organization was forced to pay $450,000 in fees and $9000 to the two plaintiffs.[78] . Christian organizations are actually being forced to arrange for sin. For a free society that is taking away freedom of religion. Those who are pushing for homosexual rights, apparently are happy to take away people practicing their religious faith.

Homosexuality is a many faceted issue. However, Christians should say the way that we show love to homosexuals is not to say that what they are doing is ok. Society has plenty of reasons to not promote this activity that leads to death and disease. The Supreme Court’s rationalization for homosexual marriage was at the core, wrong because homosexuality is not immutable. Christians need to offer hope for the homosexual for freedom in Christ. Organizations like Courage, and the other organizations that offer help to homosexuals to help them turn to Christ who can give them the power to stay to the biblical teaching. Liberty in Christ can lead to a happiness that can never be found in a lifestyle that is at odds with their own nature. Christians are not to mock and degrade those, as many have done in the past, but offer love, a tough love, and help them to develop non-sexual relationships with those of the same sex. Christians believe in Christ one can become a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). If one is in Christ, he came to set all from the bondage of sin (John 8:31), including homosexuality. No doubt for those struggling it is not easy. But God’s grace is sufficient. For those Christians who want to help, point them to get into the grace that can only be found in Christ. The church needs to offer help for such people, not to encourage them in the sin that leads to separation from God, but the grace that leads to eternal joy.
