The new litmus test for 2012 presidential candidates: Reinstatement of “DADT” (Part 3)

So much of life is about “continuing education” – and the following from Gary Glenn is something every American needs to learn. Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, recently summed up the “multitude of severe threats to mental, emotional, and physical health scientifically associated with [homosexual] behavior”:

Oxford University’s International Journal of Epidemiology published a study regarding the prospective life spans of college-age young men who engage in homosexual behavior. Their findings:

“CONCLUSION: In a major Canadian centre, life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality were to continue, we estimate that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 years will not reach their 65th birthday.”

A finding repeated by the Canadian Medical Association Journal:

“Among young gay and bisexual men in Vancouver, the HIV/AIDS epidemic has reduced life expectancy by up to 20 years.”

And by the “gay” Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition:

“The report’s list of health issues affecting queer Canadians includes lower life expectancy than the average Canadian, suicide, higher rates of substance abuse, depression, inadequate access to care and HIV/AIDS.  ‘There are all kinds of health issues that are endemic to (the homosexual) community,’ said (executive director of the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition Gens) Hell Quist. ‘We have higher rates of anal cancer in the gay male community; lesbians have higher rates of breast cancer.'”

More from the Rainbow Health Coalition:

“(W)hat research exists consistently indicates that the life expectancy of GLB people is substantially lower than that of the general population. …It has been estimated that gay/bisexual men have a life expectancy 20 years less than the average man in Canada.”

Gary Glenn writes of the foolishness of “Legitimizing a lifestyle of behavior found by medical researchers as likely to reduce your life by up to 20 years…” Glenn also notes the ridiculousness of those who insist that

— “these severely increased threats to private and public health are a result of some churchgoer down the street’s moral opposition to [that] behavior. The increased incidence of HIV and anal cancer, for example, are a direct result of that behavior itself, i.e., physical trauma to and/or disease transmission through an orifice the sole purpose of which is the expulsion of bodily waste.”

The reason the United States of America has achieved a level of prosperity and relative stability previously unknown in human history is due to its Judeo-Christian culture and its laws that reflect that moral/natural law. The big step away from that tradition must be reversed – and all Republican candidates must now face the litmus test that they are wiling to do just that.
