A new study which analyzed tens of thousands of gay obituaries and compared them with ALDS death data from the Center for Disease Control has shown that the life expectancy for male homosexuals is about twenty years shorter than that of the general public. The study entitled Gay Obituaries closely track officially reported deaths from AIDS has been published in Psychological Reports 2005 96 693 697.
In an interview with lifesitenews com, Doctor Paul Cameron the President of the Family Research Institute and the scientist who headed the study indicated that he was not at all surprised by the findings and that it only served as further confirmation for what has long been known and other studies have already shown.
Corresponding almost exactly with Camersons study, the Vancouver Study indicated that life expectancy for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men.
While I love and support the gay community in general, in good conscience, I most oppose the unhealthy activity of male on male anal intercourse due to the health hazards involved in such actions.
A military should protect not risk the lives of its soldiers.

A geat factual statement that congress should consider reading. Of course this may not be conducive to get the gay vote & really that is all the democrats want.

If you've never worn the uniform in a battlezone, you're not qualified to comment. Given your statement, you're unqualified to comment because you're comparing a&&holes to elbows.

DADT works why change it? It lets the queers serve in the military as long as they don't act like queers. The main purpose of the military is to protect America not conduct some social engineering experiment to appease the queer faction of the demoratic party.

I tend to agree. Just think if the openly gay soldier is spotted by a closeted gay Taliban. Think of the fireworks that would ensue. The group could be subjected to an attack from the rear flank. I'm much more comfortable knowing my ass is being protected by a closeted gay soldier. Puns notwithstanding, I jave trouble believing that we have entrusted the running of our military to such dimwits.
