No the numbers of Gays are not increasing among our youth but an attitude of indifference toward morality. Thus one of the reasons for Gay attacks on Christianity.

There are people who claim to have had sex with Gays for money but are not interested otherwise.
That is a break down in morality.That same break down pushes the acceptance of homosexuality. The worst enemy Gays have is mother nature and the science that points out that homosexuality is perversion, but as you can see science can be silenced by Christianity can not.

I doubt the number of Gays within any particular group of people has ever exceeded much more than 2-3% of the population, they are more visible because the population is growing

Now that you have mentioned it I looked it up and Ben Gleck are right. The pope does live with a guy named Gauwein who has said that his holiness has "impregnated my priesthood". I wish you hadnt mentioned it and then I wouldnt have looked it up and wouldn't know this and now I am confused about the whole thing of men in womens clothes with funny hats wafting incense and chanting who knows what whil kids are tied up in the vestry. Shame on you for telling this.

OUTLAW HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR, TO STOP AIDS, DEPORT ALL HOMOSEXUALS ANYWHERE PREFERABLY TO IRAN OR RUSSIA.
I dont want to pay for nudes to get free bags if I have to pay. there must be some other way for you to make money than selling these damn plastic bags that leak. Travelling to these countries to find plastic bags is silly and doesnt make much sense. Why do you think that plastic bags are easier to get in those countries and it would be unpleasant to be around old fat smelly folks of any country who are nude and none too clean. I believe you have to rethink your plan. Get some rest and take two of those things and watch TV for the rest of your life.

Feces Consumption Leads High Incidence of Intestinal Parasites Among Gays

.
San Francisco -- San Francisco public health authorities have detected an unusual increase in cases of shigellosis, an unpleasant intestinal bug that can cause cramps, fever and bloody diarrhea for as long as a week.

So far this year, 205 cases of the bacterial infection, which is also know as bacillary dysentery, have been reported. That is nearly double the 113 cases reported during all of 1999. Of particular concern are the 50 cases reported in July and 60 cases in August -- the highest monthly rates since the city began tracking the disease in 1993.

A majority of the cases reported this year have been among gay men, who can be exposed to shigella bacteria through oral-anal contact. Day care workers also are at higher risk of contracting the illness.

``Because of the sharp increase in cases, it means people are engaged in behavior that puts them at risk for the disease,'' said Dr. Susan Fernyak, San Francisco director of communicable disease prevention.``It takes very few bacteria to transmit shigellosis. It's very infectious.''

There is no vaccine to prevent shigellosis, but it is readily treated with antibiotics. A similar illness, hepatitis A, does not respond to antibiotics, but cases of that illness have dropped sharply since a vaccine to prevent it became available.

Fernyak said those who are infected should not handle food. The bacteria may still be present in the body for as long as a week after symptoms of the illness are gone. It is possible for someone to contract a mild case of the bug and show few symptoms of the illness, but still be capable of transmitting it to others.

Dr. Tomas Aragon, director of Community Health and Epidemiology, said that there is a chronic low-level form of shigellosis in San Francisco's gay community and that periodically the number of cases will rise, particularly during the summer months.

Of the cases recorded this year, 82 percent were among men, and 63 percent of those volunteered information that they were gay or bisexual. Six men who contracted the diseases reported that they were heterosexual.

There were 17 cases of shigellosis among children under the age of 5 -- a rate that has not changed in recent years. Seven out of 10 cases reported this year involve a strain of shigella bacteria called sonnei, which tends to show up when the number of cases of the illness increases sharply. Another strain of the shigella, known as flexneri, is more common at chronic low levels of infection in the population.

Aragon said the number of cases reported so far this year put San Francisco on a pace to meet or exceed the 326 cases reported in 1995.

Grooming kids in a 'gay' identity
P.......
No, because you can't groom a kid into being gay, any more than straight teachers who abuse their power and their charges room those poor kids into being straight.

At least pretend to provide a fact or two.

The consequences of same sex marriage on gender segregated institutions are serious! Maybe Quest doesn't care about about inpatient care and prison safety, but I do. More prisons, not same sex marriage.

what about fat people and their right to have small stinky noisy demented nude dogs? This is a god given right and that is that. I dont care what you say and that is why I believe in the teabag party and always vote for them and their stuff as they dont know crap either and refuse to learn which is a strategic position but there are plenty of us and we all meet in church. woopee in the vestry no more but planning in the sacristy is on and you are off. Or something like that cant we all just get along with the korean mooslimms? Remeber that DC is full now of the Morons from Outer Space who have taken over so we have to go along or lose our pups.

Tom isn't facing the argument, ad hominem isn't reason. Most same sex marriage supporters feel they are superior people to their political opponents and it fills them with hate, so they often insult. Don't take it personal, but call it when you see it.

Same sex marriage supporters don't like to think about the consequences of their policy, they don't take tomorrow seriously. I ask Quest, what will be the probable affect of same sex marriage on gender segregated institutions, where unrelated adults are held in a communal living environment? We already have too much prison rape, will we get forced same sex marriage?

The consequences of same sex marriage would be serious to prisoners and the free, no kidding.

Exactly, marriage isn't for everybody.

Many women like to sexually abuse husbands, so it would normally be the men that get the worst of it.
Well, I can certainly agree, same sex marriage would be bad for men and women too.
