Whether it's a choice or not is irrelevant since we allow diversity on clearly choice-based differences like religion!

I think that is actually pretty low when you consider that very few conservatives watch ABC or read the Post.

They polled by calling random people. It wasn't based on people who watch ABC or read the Post.

Lets see as of August 2012 homosexuals are responsible for 79% of all the Aids cases in the U.S.

2.During the same period syphilis in homosexuals is up 134%

“Citizens need to be given the information as to options about sexuality,” Goldberg continued.“Equal access to ‘ex-gay’ information is essential.”

.

3. Increased incidence of infectious diseases
- gonorrhea- chlamydia - pubic lice- hepatitis A - hepatitis B
- hepatitis C - anal papilloma
Gays are still Banned From Donating Blood

4. The highest rate of anal cancer and shigellosis from eating feces.

5.The Epidemic of Parasites in Gay Men

The incidence of gastrointestinal parasites rose exponentially in gay men during the two decades The transmission of parasites was associated with sexual activity that exposed partners to feces, particularly oral-anal sex or "rimming." By 2010, the prevalence of parasites was 60% or greater for homosexual men attending STD clinics or private practice.

.

6. Homosexuals make up less than 2% of the population .

"The rate of homosexual versus heterosexual child sexual abuse is staggering,"Homosexuals make up less than 2% of the population .

"Abel’s data of 150.2 boys abused per male homosexual offender finds no equal (yet) in heterosexual violations of 19.8 girls."
Authorities say evidence examined disproves the assertion that child molestation is more prevalent among heterosexuals.

Please prove that being gay causes disease, in and of itself, and that marriage increases the incidence of all sexually transmitted disease.

Thanks.

That's a fact!
Stay small lil bro, and expensive.
Gay people are quite normal, and you seem to forget that half the gay population has almost NO HIV in the population.

That's a fact. It's not sexual orientation, it's behavior - and those behaviors that help to spread HIV alSo spread it in the straight population - in some countries almost completely within that population.

The only question is whether or not you think that legally marrying increases the incidence of HIV.

Can you show any link to marriage and HIV increases?

There is already a worldwide HIV epidemic, spread mostly by heterosexuals in the most affected countries.

Seems unprotected sex, and not sexual orientation, is the cause.

Actually, in some countries, the HIV rate among heterosexuals is insanely higher.

A simple fact.

"Today, the Reuters Corporation released the results of an even bigger poll than the Post's and found that only 41% of America supports the case being made by Ted Olson and David Boies at the Supreme Court. In an astonishingly large survey sample, 24,455 people (23,000 more than the Washington Post's survey!), barely four out of 10 Americans thought homosexuals should be allowed to "marry." Those numbers are far and away more consistent with the findings of trustworthy survey houses in the last few months on marriage. It also shows the unreliability of the media's polling. In 48 hours, we've seen a 17-point swing in public opinion on marriage."

You can't stop lying, even when you're so easily exposed, can you, SniKKKers? Let's look more closely at what you posted, shall we? The quote beginning with "Today" and ending with "marriage" exists nowhere in the article. You flat-out lied. Did you really think no one would bother to click on the link? Naturally, while misquoting the 41% figure, you also left out the sentences surrounding it:

"Overall, that Reuters poll found 63 percent supported gay marriage or civil unions, with 41 percent of people saying same-sex couples should be permitted to marry. The greatest support was in the Northeast, with 69 percent of adults favoring a gay marriage or civil-union right. The lowest support was in the South, at 57 percent. Overall, surveys have shown a drop in endorsement of civil unions simultaneous to a rise in support of same-sex marriage."

With all your experience at lying, you really should be better at it by now. But you're not bad at everything; you excel at being a pathetic loser.
