Did you ever snort a pixy stick as a kid?
I think we all can laugh at the absurdity of doing that.
The reason should be obvious. But just in case it is not, let us remember our body parts each have a designed purpose.
The nose must be used for smelling and for breathing—not for ingesting food, much less a packet of sugar.
Likewise, just because my eyes or my ears can ingest liquid drops, in the event of an infection, does not mean I should then use them to consume food.
Because the human body has this rather rigid design, all organs and body parts have limitations. If any one of them is used improperly, it can lead to poor health, pain, or even death.
HOMOSEXUALITY IS UNNATURAL
With this as a background, we can see now why homosexual activity is unnatural.
The sexual organs are ordered toward procreation. The male sexual organs are there to pass semen to the female organs, in order to generate offspring.
By definition, homosexual activity cannot generate offspring. The sexual organs, in this case, frustrate the design for which they were made.
As a result, homosexual activity becomes a huge health risk, nearly synonymous with further spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)—including AIDS, and mental health disorders. In fact, homosexuality has been shown to reduce life expectancy by 20 years!
THE STATISTICS PROVE NATURE NEVER FORGIVES
The saying goes ‘God always forgives. Man sometimes forgives. But nature never forgives.’
Don’t just take my word. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) of the US government has ominous warnings, provides sobering statistics, and offers advice to gay men and lesbians at http://www.cdc.gov/lgbthealth. By clicking through that site, and reading its postings, I have compiled the following data and notes.
Men Having Sex with Men
– The CDC recommends annual STD testing, specifically for HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and Genital Herpes for homosexually active men.
– The CDC recommends Chlamydia and Gonorrhea testing annually for homosexually active men in their penis, throat, and rectum.
– The CDC suggests homosexually active men discuss with their doctors propensity toward substance abuse, as well as depression and anxiety.
– Homosexual men are more likely to die from prostate, testicular, and colon cancer.
– 1/3 of gays or bisexual men carrying HIV are unaware they carry the disease.
– Gay and bisexual men represent for 2% of the US population, but account for 3/4 of all new HIV infections.
Women Having Sex with Women
– Sexually active lesbians are more likely to contract cancer of the breast and other gynecological cancer.
– The CDC reports domestic violence among sexual lesbians partners is more common than people realize.
– Up to 30% of women who have sex with women are carrying HPV.
– The most common STDs spread among lesbian women are bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia, genital herpes, HPV, pubic lice, trichomoniasis.
– The spread of syphilis among the gay community has more than doubled since 2000, according to the CDC (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_146162.html).
– LGBT teens are MORE THAN TWICE AS LIKELY as their peers to contemplate or to attempt suicide.
Homosexual activity turns out to be so hazardous to one’s health, especially in the area of STDs that the CDC actually recommends AGAINST having sex—anal, vaginal, or oral—in order to prevent the spread of HIV and STDs.
SO-CALLED ‘GAY MARRIAGE’ TURNS OUT TO BE UNTENABLE FOR TWO OBVIOUS REASONS
When we bring in the hot topic of today, the debate over so-called “gay marriage,” we can learn a lot.
To be clear, marriage is ordered toward the procreation and raising of children, as well as for the good of the spouses.
The conjugal act remains the one activity no other activity can compare. Through it new life can be generated. Where no human person existed, one can be formed by this single act. Understanding this remains critical to see why so-called “gay marriage” will never be a real marriage.
Unable to have children, gays and lesbians cannot fulfill the purpose of marriage.
No Good of the Spouses
The focus I actually hope to draw out in this article is that homosexual activity will forever be physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually harmful. I think the stats above go a long way toward showing that.
Since marriage is an institution whereby couples are meant to help one another, homosexual unions do not meet the grade.
Obviously no one would wish onto another depression, anxiety, STDs, or cancer.
Yet, if anyone allows or encourages homosexuals to pursue “marriage,” then that person essentially endorses this harmful lifestyle.
In the end, this unhealthy standard of living by homosexuals contradicts what is good for spouses, if a “marriage” were to be pursued.
(Notice, I did not appeal to God, the Bible, or the Catholic Church. I am adding an argument to our arsenal, based on human nature.)
Okay, I am expecting feedback on this one. Is this a pretty compelling case?
What could I add to strengthen my argument?
Or, am I completely off?
