The Hidden Danger of Same-Sex Marriage:

In recent years, the Gay Rights movement has made tremendous headway to legalize same-sex marriage in several states by chanting sugary slogans such as “it’s just love” and “civil rights for all.” Such seemingly harmless mantras resonate positively with libertarian, left-wing American ideologues, yet deceptively mask the LGBT movement’s darker, ulterior motives.

Beneath the melodious rhetoric of the LGBT movement is a grandiose plan to require all American public schools to teach impressionable prepubescent children that homosexual partnerships and intercourse are not only legal but an equally valid, healthy, and socially acceptable alternative to heterosexuality.

Justifying the use of taxpayer money to introduce and normalize homosexuality in public schools is nearly impossible in states where same-sex marriage is illegal. LGBT leaders know that, and it partly explains why they’re fiercely pushing for same-sex-marriage.

So, what’s the harm in teaching the next generation that homosexuality is a valid alternative to heterosexuality? A preponderance of scientific research reveals that gay sex, in terms of health and safety, is actually not a valid alternative. The danger of practicing deviant sexual relations is evident in the massive number of sexually active gays who have tragically died or suffered from HIV and AIDS in the past thirty years.

Unfortunately, the onslaught of infections continues to this day. For instance, in December of 2012, the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - an independent, non-partisan governmental organization- released data that showed HIV infections “had remained steady in the general public between 2008 and 2010,[while] infections had risen by an incredible 22 percent in young gay men.”(U.S News, Flock, July 3 2013)

Moreover,“Gay men represented two-thirds of new infections. And nearly 6,000 gay men were dying of AIDS every year.”

Despite Hollywood’s positive and glamorous portrayal of homosexual couples in sitcoms and films, the CDC revealed a less flattering exposé by stating,“If HIV continues to spread at its current rates, more than half of college-aged gay men will have HIV by the age of 50.”(U.S News, Flock, July 3 2013)

With millions of dollars being channeled to pro-gay marketing firms, political action campaigns, and sympathetic media outlets, the LGBT movement has successfully popularized the notion that sodomy between two men poses the same health risks as vaginal intercourse between a man and a woman. The LGBT movement knows that that popular perception is a myth, yet unconscionably perpetuates it to advance its same-sex marriage, and homosexuality-in-the-schools agenda, at the potential cost of millions of lives.

Indeed HIV and AIDS are significantly more common among homosexual men not because these virulent diseases are homophobic/prejudicial, but because the architecture of the human rectum was not designed for penile penetration rather for bowel evacuation. In addition, unlike the female genital canal, the anus did not evolve with built-in cellular properties to protect the male body from this deadly virus.

The Hidden Danger of Same-Sex Marriage (continued):

The LGBT movement is very aware of the disproportionate HIV/AIDS epidemic among the gay community, yet it continues to leverage its enormous political and financial power to uphold the Disneyesque fantasy that sexually active gay couples are just as healthy and functional as their heterosexual counterparts.

How will the legalization of same-sex marriage affect your family?

If same-sex marriage is made legal in your state – public schools will be legally required to teach your sons, grandsons, nephews etc. that homosexuality is a socially acceptable and equal alternative to heterosexuality. To avoid costly discrimination or defamation lawsuits from gay parents or federal and state authorities, school educators will deliberately avoid teaching the true health risks of male-to-male sodomy. Without knowledge of the full risks of MSM sodomy, the young male members of your family may feel recreational anal sex is safe enough to try, and by trying it just once, they could tragically join the fifty percent of young American gay men who are projected to contract HIV by the age of 50.

If you believe in freedom, then free your mind from the media elite’s false propaganda and politically-correct mythology, and purify it with pristine truth. If you’re motivated by justice, then advocate against the LGBT movement’s harmful crusade to promote high-risk homosexual behavior to our nation’s children. And if love guides your heart, then show love for your brethren by demanding LGBT leaders to place human life over political aggrandizement by making HIV/AIDS – not marriage- their first and foremost priority.

May peace be with you!

Blah, blah, blah, blah. We've heard this baloney countless times. So you think that even TALKING about homosexuality will make a kid grow up to be gay? Like all other homophobes, you're DELUSIONAL.

I feel so sorry for you, all this work into your magnum opus on the subject and you're still losing. You even went to the effort to find a reference on which to blame what you have mistaken for thought. Darn.

It is tragic that it is necessary for a Judge to grant this exception, but wonderful that it's happened.

Humanity prevails.

Mazel Tov to the happy couple.

May their marriage be long and joyous.

First : There is no proof that homosexuals brought AIDS into the world ; bestiality , more likely .. 2: Heterosexuals have died by the millions in recorded time due to venereal disease ; whose fault is that ? Shall we punish them by taking their civic rights away ? Nonsense ..

Bravo, Sir! Bravo!

And these two are radical homosexuals and are probably lying about the one's condition.

But lies don't fool Mother Nature and Conan the Bacterium!
