Am I A Homophobe? - Not if it's a rational fear

Homosexuality Facts - Reasons to be afraid of the lifestyle choice.

Am I a homophobe?

Bruce "comes out of the closet" as a homophobe. This word is used to bully those who do not "accept" the homosexual lifestyle choice, so Bruce embraces the designation. But wait. In our topsy turvey, wrong is right world, maybe HE"s not the one with "irrational fear."

Born that way

Some homosexuals are trying to foist the argument on the rest of us that they are born that way. Studies (like one on twins) show that this isn't true. But in a way it is, because we are all born sinful. Homosexuality comes from broken homes, abuse, and grooming by other homosexuals of vulnerable youngsters. These are some of the big problems with "affirming" a homosexual lifestyle choice. And we don't want to face up to the fact that it might have been our own actions that caused a family member to choose a perverse, destructive and unhealthy lifestyle in the first place.

Affirming a homosexual lifestyle choice is not love

Even a quick overview of the problems with homosexuality shows that it is a hurtful, corrupt and even deadly lifestyle. How in the world can a loving person affirm that? We cannot consign our loved ones to a tortured life or an early grave simply because we are too chicken to tell it like it is (or repent of our own divorce or adultery sin). Repentance and forgiveness is the key, both for the homosexual and the family members that created them.

2016 update: A number of sources keep changing their information to be more favorable to homosexuality and less factual, especially government websites such as the CDC and the FDA. So we have started a policy of downloading pdf's or saving the actual web pages and storing them on our site and linking to the stored images. But we also list the actual address if you want it.

Coming Out Of The Closet: I Am A Homophobe

A phobia is defined in the dictionary as a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it. Homophobe is a term used to denigrate and bully those who oppose homosexuality. But given the facts, a fear of homosexuals and desire to avoid them is perhaps not so irrational. It ends up being as good a word to describe my fear as any, and I don’t think the homosexuals should control the discussion. So I am coming out of the closet.

I am a homophobe. I am afraid of homosexuals, their lifestyle choices, and their protectors and promoters.

I am afraid homosexuals are tearing my country apart with their perverse desires to rip the traditional family to shreds. The only reason for homosexual “marriage” is to destroy real marriage.

  • Michelangelo Signorile, writing in Out! magazine, has stated that homosexuals should, "...fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completely … To debunk a myth and radically alter an archaic institution. … The most subversive action lesbians and gays can undertake-and one that would perhaps benefit all of society-is to transform the notion of 'family' altogether." (Out! magazine, Dec./Jan., 1994.)
  • “In 1972 the National Coalition of Gay Organizations demanded the 'repeal of all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or number of persons entering into a marriage unit; and the extension of legal benefits to all persons who cohabit regardless of sex or numbers.' Would polygamy invite abuse of child brides, as feminists in Muslim countries and prosecutors in Mormon Utah charge? No. Group marriage could comprise any combination of genders." (Stop the Wedding!: Why Gay Marriage Isn't Radical Enough; Judith Levine; The Village Voice; July 23-29, 2003.)

I am afraid homosexuals have no desire for monogamous relationships of any kind, married or not.

  • 43% of white male homosexuals estimated they had sex with 500 or more different partners. 75% had 100 or more. 28% (the largest subcategory) reported more than 1000 partners. 79% said more than half their partners were strangers. 70% said more than half their sexual partners were men with whom they had sex only once. (Homosexualities: A Study of Diversity Among Men and Women; Bell and Weinberg; New York; Simon and Schuster; 1978, pp. 308-309; referring to a study published by The Kinsey Institute. I’ve also seen it cited as published by Touchstone; 1979.)
  • Homosexual activists and marketing experts Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen say “[T]he cheating ratio of ‘married’ gay males, given enough time, approaches 100%…Many gay lovers, bowing to the inevitable, agree to an ‘open relationship,’ for which there are as many sets of ground rules as there are couples.” (After the Ball; by homosexuals Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen; Plume; Sept. 1990; page 330.)
  • “The single most important factor that keeps couples together past the ten-year mark is the lack of possessiveness they feel. Many couples learn very early in their relationship that ownership of each other sexually can become the greatest internal threat to their staying together.” (The Male Couple: How Relationships Develop; by homosexuals David McWhirter and Andrew Mattison; Prentice Hall Trade; February 1985.)
  • “The incidence of domestic violence among gay men is nearly double that in the heterosexual population.” (Intimate Violence in Lesbian Relationships: Discussion of Survey Findings and Practice Implications; Gwat Yong Lie and Sabrina Gentlewarrier; Journal of Social Service Research 15 (1991): 41–59. Quoted from www.exodusglobalalliance.org/ishomosexualityhealthyp60.php or website file.

I am afraid of homosexual diseases, their AIDS virus, the way they carelessly spread so many STD’s and the death and destruction that follow in the wake of their lifestyle choice.

The Center for Disease Control Uniform Crime Reports state that homosexuals make up 2.5% of the population. But they have 64% of the nation’s syphilis, along with above average drug and alcohol abuse rates and the highest suicide rates. In 2010 the CDC reports that 78% of men newly infected with HIV were homosexual. This is why AIDS is a homosexual disease. The next largest group is intravenous drug users, many of which are also homosexual. Only a very small amount of heterosexuals contract the virus and these are usually sexually promiscuous in the first place.

  • Stanley Monteith, M.D. in “The Gay Agenda” by The Report, a VHS tape produced in 1992 says: “Compared to heterosexuals, male homosexuals are 8 times more likely to have had hepatitis, 14 times more likely to have had syphilis, and 5,000 times more likely to have contracted AIDS."

I am afraid of homosexual hate, anger, arrogance and bullying as they continually insist that laws don’t apply to them.

The homosexual community is lying about being bullied, especially its contribution to suicides. Most homosexual suicides are due to guilt, shame, anger, despair or hate stemming from the lifestyle choice. They have high involvement in drugs, early sexual activity, and prostitution. They also have a high rate of family problems such as divorce, violence, incest, or alcoholism. Psychologists have long known that homosexuality is associated with dysfunctional family structures. http://narth.com

I am afraid of homosexual regression into more and more violent practices, and how those practices lead to violent sex crimes including criminal brutality and murder.

Studies show that male homosexuals average between 20 and 106 partners every year. The average homosexual has 300 to 500 partners in his lifetime. 37% engage in sadomasochism, at least 28% have engaged in sodomy with more than a thousand men. As time in the behavior choice goes on, sex acts get more and more violent because the first perversions just don’t do it for them anymore.

  • They attend circuit parties, at which thousands of men engage in 3-day orgies of music, sex and drugs. Amin Ghaziani, Thomas Cook, "Reducing HIV infections at circuit parties," Journal of International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care, June 2004
  • “In the 1980's HIV infection was a death sentence and many MSM modified their behavior,” 
    K. Siegel, et al. (1988) Patterns of Change in Sexual Behavior Among Gay Men in New York City. Archives of Sexual Behavior. 17, 6: 481, 497.

On the other hand…

  • “with the introduction of antiretrovirals HIV became a chronic disease.” Patrick Sullivan, Amy Drake, Travis Sanchez, "Prevalence of Treatment Optimism-related Risk Behavior and associated Factors Among Men Who Have Sex with Men in 11 States, 2000-2001,AIDS Behavior, 2007, 11,1: 123-1219.

Despite only about 2% of the U. S. population being homosexual, they are disproportionately represented in crime statistics. The top eight mass murderers in recent history are all homosexuals, and many of the runner-ups are too. I am afraid that the main stream media is helping to cover up homosexual involvement in crimes and in special interest deals with governments who push the radical homosexual agenda. The media fails to report on readily available statistics such as those in this article when covering anything connected with the homosexual agenda.

  • “As of July 23, 2001, the Associated Press list of the worst serial killers in the United States was topped by Donald Harvey, followed by John Wayne Gacy, Patrick Kearney, Bruce Davis and Dean Corll in descending number of victims. All these perpetrators of serial crimes in the 1970s and 1980s engaged in homosexuality, and the majority of the victims for the last four killers were boys.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/fr/893184/posts or saved website page.
  • “On average, gays report having their genitals manipulated by another male at about age 13. It takes about another two years before the first oral/genital contact (and it's almost always done first to the newcomer, reciprocity comes later). Around 16 or 17 is when the anus is used for sex; and it takes about another two years before the neophyte is using his mouth on the anus of others. By age 21 most gays have adopted most of these practices. In the same section, Dr. Cameron also lists the more bizarre and violent things that homosexuals do as they regress, such as urinating on one another, playing in and eating feces [coprophilia], fisting (having someone's fist put in their rectum), having other strange things put in their rectum, and sadomasochism (including violent acts such as being trussed up and beaten). The order listed is important, because that's generally the developmental order in which the acts are adopted by individual homosexuals."
    Exposing the AIDS Scandal; Paul Cameron, Ph.D.; Huntington House, Inc.; Lafayette, La.; 1988.

 

I am afraid the homosexual lifestyle is so deadly it shortens life expectancy by 20 years or more.

Of course I cite the much-hated-by-homosexuals report by Dr. Paul Cameron, President of Family Research Institute who examined 10,000 homosexual obituaries from homosexual publications. The results were cross checked with data from the CDC, and the conclusion was that the age of death for many homosexuals was the early 40’s. The median age of death for homosexuals is 60 years. This is 20 years short of the median age of death for non-homosexuals of 80.

  • In 2000, the CDC reported the median age of death of homosexuals at 43. The CDC reported that 9% of heterosexuals who died of AIDS were at least 65 years of age. But less than 4% of homosexuals and IV drug abusers who died of AIDS reached 65. In addition to higher rates of AIDS and HIV other factors contributing to the higher death rate of homosexuals are a much higher rate of suicide, smoking, alcoholism, illicit drug use and anal cancers. http://www.thedefender.org/dec2011comment.shtml or saved website page.

I am afraid of homosexual abuse of children; their desire to lower the age of consent so they can prey on more innocent victims, and their desire to adopt.

One third of child molestations according to the CDC are committed by homosexuals.

  • Pro-homosexual, pro-pedophile author Judith Levine has written in favor of lowering the age of consent to 12 for sex between children and adults. (Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children from Sex; Judith Levine; Univ. of Minnesota Press; March, 2002; p. 88).
  • "Do homosexuals disproportionately molest children? Gay activists vehemently deny it, yet the empirical evidence says otherwise. The key concept is proportionality. Probably a numerical majority of child molestations involve a male adult and a female child, but given the small fraction of homosexual practitioners, the number of homosexual molestations is disproportionate to the percentage of homosexuals. This briefing summarizes some of the key evidence." http://www.familyresearchinst.org/2012/01/how-much-child-molestation-is-homosexual/ or saved website page.

I am afraid of homosexual lack of shame, their public nudity, public sex acts, and public harassment as they desperately look for more sex partners.

Attend one of their parades, if you can stomach it.

Bath houses are popular places to engage in orgies. Besides the bath houses of the Castro district of San Francisco there are many places such as Fire Island in New York and Key West in Florida which are known for their welcome of homosexuals as well as the availability of casual sex.

  •  One homosexual/porn star even wrote a book for it as a guide: Sexplorers – The Guide to Doing It On the Road; published by PDA Press, Inc. 1995, San Francisco, CA. A 96 page booklet of places for sex in all 50 states. Out of print and not available at some of the major bookstores online.

I am afraid of “gay terrorism” and the hate reflected in it by the common attitude that “if I’m going to die I might as well take somebody with me.”

There is nothing good about homosexuality. The isolated and rare cases of seemingly well adjusted and long lived homosexuals are exceptions to the rule, if in fact they aren’t a mirage in the first place.

The original homosexual who started the AIDS epidemic in the U. S. went by the name of Gaëtan Dugas. Also called “patient zero,” he was a Canadian flight attendant who probably contracted the disease in Africa and was primarily responsible for spreading it throughout the West. He was considered the original person who started the AIDS epidemic in many places besides the U. S. When medical investigators finally traced the outbreak to him, he was warned that he was infected and would harm others. He said: “Nobody is going to stop me, it’s my civil right.” This attitude is not limited to him. It is common in most homosexuals.

I am afraid of homosexual “civil right” to spread not only their lifestyle but their destructive practices such as deliberate contaminating of the blood supply with their HIV infected blood during blood drives. I am afraid of the way homosexuals have killed thousands of hemophiliacs who depend on that blood supply.

  • Dr. Day explains in her book Aids, What the Government Isn’t Telling You; Rockford Press, Palm Desert, CA, 1991; in Chapters 2 and 3 how she unsuccessfully tried to keep the medical community in San Francisco from taking contaminated blood from members of the homosexual community, and the sharp criticism and abuse she incurred. Blood drives were organized and directed by homosexuals, with names such as "Arm in Arm" and "The Harvey Milk Club" blood drive. Harvey Milk was a well-known San Francisco homosexual activist. Blood drives were held in the Castro District in San Francisco, and "gays" were invited to "come to the party" and bring their partners. "The Castro district in San Francisco has the highest per capita rate of AIDS-infected individuals of any place in the nation." (p. 30)

  • From 1978 through 1985, virtually all hemophiliacs who required the clotting factor were infected (with AIDS) through blood bank inventory blood and now face certain death. (Same book as above by Dr. Day page 73).
  • The FDA states that homosexuals cannot give blood because “male-to-male sex is associated with an increased risk for the presence of and transmission of certain infectious diseases, including HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Men who have had sex with men since 1977 have HIV prevalence 60 times higher than the general population, 800 times higher than first time blood donors and 8000 times higher than repeat blood donors…Intravenous drug abusers are [also] excluded from giving blood because they have prevalence rates of HIV, HBV, HCV and HTLV that are much higher than the general population…This policy is not discriminatory, since it is based on the documented increased risk of certain transfusion transmissible infections associated with male-to-male sex and is not based on any judgment concerning the donor’s sexual orientation.” http://www.fda.gov/biologicsbloodvaccines/bloodbloodproducts/questionsaboutblood/ucm108186.htm or saved website page.
  • "HIV tests currently in use are highly accurate, but still cannot detect HIV 100% of the time. It is estimated that the HIV risk from a unit of blood has been reduced to about 1 per 2 million in the USA, almost exclusively from so called 'window period' donations. The 'window period' exists very early after infection, where even current HIV testing methods cannot detect all infections. During this time, a person is infected with HIV, but may not have enough virus or have developed sufficient antibodies to be detected by available tests. For this reason, a person could test negative, even when they are actually HIV positive and infectious. Therefore, blood donors are not only tested but are also asked questions about behaviors that increase their risk of HIV infection." http://www.fda.gov/biologicsbloodvaccines/bloodbloodproducts/questionsaboutblood/ucm108186.htm or saved website page.

I am afraid that blood testing is not guaranteed to find all infections. For instance, a person might have contracted HIV within a short time before giving blood, and the evidence of infection would not have become obvious at the time of donating. Also, there is no commercially available test for HIV itself. They can only test for the antibody to AIDS. The infection can remain in the body for as long as three years without detection. But the homosexuals are lobbying hard to repeal the law preventing homosexuals from giving blood. They do not care that their promiscuous and deadly lifestyle will kill others, they only care that they are being “discriminated against” though they are not harmed by this discrimination.

I am afraid that homosexuals keep trying to drag the rest of the country down to their level by advocating such things as repeal of the federal regulation prohibiting homosexuals from giving blood and the lifting of the ban on foreigners infected with HIV/AIDS from traveling and living in the U. S.

  • “While the Obama Administration and its ‘progressive’ supporters in Congress insist they want a federal health care bill to protect people from deadly diseases, liberal Senators led by John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Al Franken (D-Minn.) have just managed to pressure the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) into considering lifting the ban on male homosexuals donating blood. It's a decision that could mean disease and death for many Americans and hundreds of billions of dollars in additional health care costs. Senator Kerry was also behind the congressional decision to authorize the lifting of the ban on foreigners infected with HIV/AIDS from traveling to and living in the United States, despite the increased federal costs associated with that change in policy. The Obama Administration officially lifted the ban last October.” 2016 update: Previous site address has been changed, and the article changed to http://americasurvival.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/kincaid-gay-blood-ban.pdf or saved website page but see also http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/31/us/politics/31travel.html?_r=0 or saved website page.

I am afraid of homosexuals and their lifestyle choices. But as anyone can plainly see, the fear is rational.

Turning the homosexual use of the word upside down (back to right side up), any decent person with a shred of sanity would be afraid of them and their destructive lifestyle. This is not the only time in history when homosexual proclivities have been so prominent, and in every case destruction of the culture and the state followed. The destruction of ours is in progress even as I write. One cannot flaunt godless behavior in God’s face without incurring justified wrath. But they also do it to themselves. Their own pride in the flesh and high handed sex behavior carries the seeds of their own destruction without God having to lift a finger. Pretty soon I think God will be telling His kids to get out and away, because the winepress of His wrath will overflow as it did with the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Homosexuals will point to the fact that professional associations (like psychiatric organizations) no longer consider that homosexuals suffer from a disorder. This was based on a flawed study of only 30 homosexuals by Dr. Evelyn Hooker in 1956. But a fresh look at the study shows that The American Psychiatric Association colluded with Hooker to “grossly misrepresent her findings.” http://www.familyresearchinst.org/2012/10/apa-fraud-hooker-study-did-not-prove-homosexuals-are-normal/or saved website page.

Homosexuals say that Dr. Cameron’s study of 10,000 obituaries in homosexual publications was statistically flawed, but apparently using only 30 subjects in a study is okay, as long as it supports what you want it to show. The medical and psychiatric establishments are no strangers to falsified studies and lying because they are full of people who have money, agendas and reputations at stake. They are also susceptible to pressure and homosexual terrorism as you can see from any impartial study of things like the contamination of the San Francisco blood supply and death of thousands of hemophiliacs. The medical people and all who knuckle under to the homosexual agenda are really and truly the homophobes. Those who claim to be our leaders are making human sacrifices on the altar of money, political power, and irrational fear.

Affirming a Deadly Lifestyle is Not Love

I’m tired of hearing “love the sinner, hate the sin” too. The sinner and the sin are the same thing. Until they repent, they are headed for hell. It's true that God's love and forgiveness are available for anyone. But it only flows after repentance. People who say they are believers and are “accepting” and defending homosexuals either want the destruction of our society too (going along with what the homosexuals want) in which case they are believers in name only, or they are cowardly, or just stupid. Maybe all three. There is hope for homosexuals, but only in confession and repentance. Jesus can cleanse them, but they have to give up their lifestyle. They have to choose to do what God says. It’s not outside of their reach. To say we “love the sinner” where they are is to condemn them to death. To tell them it is okay to stay in disobedience and continue to hate God is to consign them to the lake of fire. This is not love. It’s hate. It’s telling homosexuals that we don’t care whether they live or die, and that God doesn’t care whether they live or die. It is simply being afraid to stand up for God’s Word. They’re more concerned about their own comfort than they are about lost and dying people.

The Bible tells us to “purge the evil person from among you” (Deuteronomy 17:7; 1 Corinthians 5:13). We do not have the power for capital punishment anymore (which is one of the reasons this type of sin has become so prevalent) so we cannot stone someone. But we can put them out of our assemblies, or cut off family and friend relationships until that person repents. This is an act of love, and it is much harder to do than “accepting” them. Accepting is the chicken way out. The goal through isolation is for the person to realize what is wrong and come to their senses. Our desire is that they repent before it is too late.

Some will want to criticize me because they have a son dying of AIDS and they refuse to let him die alone. Or they’ll be upset because a family member has come out of the closet and they don’t want to cut them off. They’ll think I’m being unkind or unloving, sharing the truth like this, though the Bible says that “love rejoices with the truth” (1 Corinthians 13:6). I understand. It is a tragic thing for someone you know and love to embrace the hatefulness of homosexuality or experience the slow, agonizing death that is AIDS. Fine. Do what you want. We’ve been doing that since the Garden and look where it has gotten us! They’ll rationalize that if they stay in contact (and “love” the person) they’ll be able to help. The best thing you can do for that person, however, is to tell them the truth. Lead them to God, if you know the way yourself. Maybe you can still reach them. Or maybe you don’t know Him, and you are a big reason for your family member turning to homosexuality in the first place. Maybe you haven’t followed God very well, and through lack of caring you are reaping what you’ve sown. There is a high incidence of dysfunctional family relationships in choices leading to homosexuality. In that case you will have to repent yourself. It’s not too late. Maybe your repentance will save your son.

Believers are to love God more than family and follow Him no matter what (Matthew 10:37). Isolation will help more than anything, if there is any hope at all. If they love homosexuality more than family (or God), then perhaps they are too far gone to help anyway.

 Put no trust in a neighbor; have no confidence in a friend; guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your arms; for the son treats the father with contempt, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house. But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. (Micah 7:5–7, ESV)

This information only scratches the surface. There is much more to be found but you’ll have to do some digging. Try a few word searches online and you’ll get the big picture. Or print out free brochures from places such as The Family Research Council. One booklet in particular that is great is The Top Ten Myths About Homosexuality. You can see for yourself that there is a war going on. There is a concerted effort by the homosexual community to suppress information, disparage studies, and hide their true nature especially in the last 15 or 20 years. Homosexuals will dispute much of the published statistics, and then try to paint people such as Dr. Cameron as “controversial,” as if that somehow diminishes the facts presented. Remember, liars are sinners, and sinners lie. If only a small part of the material cited here is true it is still enough to cause fear in reasonable people.

The American Psychiatric Association defines a “disorder” as “associated with…a significantly increased risk of suffering, death, pain [or] disability.” It seems apparent then that perhaps my “homophobia” is not the disorder at all. In our crazy, mixed up world of wrong being right and right being wrong my homophobia is in fact the only right and sane position. Homosexuality (with its supporters) is the insane, hate-filled position. It is a phobia of God on their part. Regardless of the capitulation of medical and political leaders, homosexual behavior is definitely associated with increased suffering, death and pain.

Shalom
