“When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.” (Prov 29:2)

Homosexuality is the attraction or orientation toward persons of the same sex and includes sexual acts between persons of the same sex.  Homosexual acts are intrinsically and morally wrong because they ultimately destroy the human person and are a grave violation of God’s purpose for human procreation.  Homosexuality is primarily characterized by the act of sodomy, which all civilized societies have rightly condemned.  

The Facts
The Homosexual Agenda
What Does God Say?

Throughout history, the major civilizations and all major religions have condemned homosexuality.  In the American colonies, homosexual acts were a capital offense.  Thomas Jefferson said that homosexuality "should be punished by castration."  Until 1961, homosexual acts were illegal throughout America.

  • According to the Centers For Disease Control, 65% of all reported AIDS cases among U.S. males since 1981 have been men engaged in homosexual behavior. (CDC HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report, May 1998)
  • According to the CDC (1996), Federal money spent per death for Cancer was $3,776.00, for heart disease it was $1,056.00, and for AIDS/HIV it was $39,172.00.
  • Men who engage in sodomy are 860% more likely to contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD), increasing up to 500% their risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.( Centers for Disease Control, "Resurgent Bacterial Sexually Transmitted Disease Among Men Who Have Sex With Men," September 10, 1999)
  • There are higher rates of non-fatal suicidal behavior among those with homosexual attractions than among the heterosexual population. (From a study in the March 2003 issue of The American Journal of Psychology)
  • Women who commit sex acts with other women face a significantly higher risk of bacterial vaginosis, breast cancer and ovarian cancer than heterosexual women. (Medical Institute of Sexual Health, "Health Implications Associated with Homosexuality," 1999)
  • Anal Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection is nearly universal among HIV-positive homosexual or bisexual men and about 60% in HIV-negative men exhibiting the same sexual behavior. (Infectious Disease News, "Because of HPV, anal cancer screening indicated for certain high-risk groups," October, 1997)
  • A recent study conducted in the Netherlands — where gay marriage has been legal for several years — found that the average homosexual relationship lasts only 1.5 years. (Maria Xiridou et al, “The Contributions of Steady and Casual Partnerships to the Incidence of HIV Infection Among Homosexual Men in Amsterdam,” AIDS, 17 2003: 1029-38)
  • A 1991 study of homosexual men revealed that their average number of lifetime partners was 308. ((H. Meyer-Balburg et al, “Sexual Risk Behavior, Sexual Functioning and HIV-Disease Progression in Gay Men,” Journal of Sex Research, Vol. 28, No. 1: 3-27)
  • A New England Journal of Medicine study of homosexuals who kept sexual diaries indicated that their number of annual sexual partners averaged nearly 100. (L. Corey and K.K. Holmes, “Sexual Transmission of Hepatitis A in Homosexual Men.” New England Journal of Medicine, 1980, vol 302: 435-438)
  • For homosexual males with a partner, the average lifespan was 45. For homosexual males without a partner, the average lifespan was 46. (Deaths examined between 1999 and 2001. Homosexual Partnerships and Homosexual Longevity: A Replication. Psychological Reports - 2002, 91, 671-678)
  • Out of 6,574 homosexual deaths, the average lifespan if AIDS was the cause of death was 39. The average lifespan if AIDS was not the cause was 42. For lesbians, the average lifespan was 44. (Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, Volume 29, Number 3, 1994. The Longevity of Homosexuals: Before and After the AIDS Epidemic.)
  • The June 2003 issue of the American Journal of Public Health shared a survey of sexually active homosexual men.  The results revealed that the study participants averaged seven sex partners in just the previous six months, while 25% of respondents claimed to have had sex with 18 or more partners during the previous six months.
  • A study released at the July 2003 National HIV Prevention Conference, found that 39% of gay and bisexual men admitted that they had met partners over the Internet and engaged in unprotected sex.
  • According to the National Institutes of Health, 90% of HIV positive gay men are infected with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV or genital warts), and 65% of HIV negative gay men are infected with HPV, and incurable sexually transmitted disease.
  • According to the Journal of Clinical Pathology, homosexuals are 3.7 times more likely to be infected with gonorrhea than are heterosexuals.  According to their findings, 15.2% of homosexuals suffer pharnygeal (throat) cancer gonorrhea.

The Homosexual Agenda for America:

In 1972, the National Coalition of Gay Organizations met in Chicago to develop an initial gay-rights platform, which included:

  • "Federal encouragement and support for sex education courses, prepared and taught by qualified gay women and men... presenting homosexuality as a vialbe alternative to heterosexuality."
  • "Repeal of all state laws prohibiting private sexual acts involving consenting adults";
  • "Repeal of all state laws prohibiting solicitation for private sexual liaisons; and laws prohibiting prostitution, both male and female";
  • Enactment of legislation so that child custody ... shall not be denied because of sexual orientation";
  • "Repeal of all laws prohibiting transvestitism and cross-dressing";
  • "Repeal of all laws governing the age of sexual consent" (legalizing pedophilia)
  • "Repeal of all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or number of persons entering into the marriage unit, and the extension of legal benefits regardless of sex or numbers."

In April 1993 at the Gay Pride March on Washington D.C., the following demands were made by the homosexual community:

  • the "legalization of same-sex marriages";
  • "the redefinition of sexual re-assignment surgeries as medical, not cosmetic treatment";
  • "unrestricted, safe, and affordable alternative insemination";
  • "safe and affordable abortion" available to all people "without restriction and regardless of age";
  • homosexual education programs in "all levels of education" including elementary schools;
  • "an end to discrimination based on sexual orientation in all programs of the Boy Scouts";
  • "an end to gender dysphoria as a psychological disorder."

"In the early stages of any campaign to reach straight America, the masses should not be shocked and repelled by premature exposure to homosexual  behavior itself.  Instead, the imagery of sex should be downplayed and gay rights should be reduced to an abstract social question as much as possible.  First let the camel get his nose inside the tent - only later his unsightly derriere!"  - Marshall Kirk, The Overhauling of Straight America (1987)

Scripture verses regarding homosexuality:

Genesis 13:10-13
[10] And Lot lifted up his eyes, and saw that the Jordan valley was well watered everywhere like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of Zo'ar; this was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomor'rah.  [11] So Lot chose for himself all the Jordan valley, and Lot journeyed east; thus they separated from each other.  [12] Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, while Lot dwelt among the cities of the valley and moved his tent as far as Sodom.  [13] Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21  [20] Then the LORD said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomor'rah is great and their sin is very grave, [21] I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry which has come to me.

Genesis 19:1-3,12-13,24-28
[1] The two angels came to Sodom in the evening; and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed himself with his face to the earth, [2] and said, "My lords, turn aside, I pray you, to your servant's house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise up early and go on your way." They said, "No; we will spend the night in the street."  [3] But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
[12]  Then the men said to Lot, "Have you any one else here? Sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or any one you have in the city, bring them out of the place;  [13] for we are about to destroy this place, because the outcry against its people has become great before the LORD, and the LORD has sent us to destroy it."
[24]  Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomor'rah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; [25] and he overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.  [26] But Lot's wife behind him looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.  [27] And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the LORD;  [28] and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomor'rah and toward all the land of the valley, and beheld, and lo, the smoke of the land went up like the smoke of a furnace.

Leviticus 18:22-25
[22] You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.  [23] And you shall not lie with any beast and defile yourself with it, neither shall any woman give herself to a beast to lie with it: it is perversion.  [24] "Do not defile yourselves by any of these things, for by all these the nations I am casting out before you defiled themselves; [25] and the land became defiled, so that I punished its iniquity, and the land vomited out its inhabitants.
-  Leviticus 18:22-25 gives explicit description of homosexual acts, the land itself was defiled and punished, this sin is universally condemned as it violates God’s design for all of mankind (Gen 2:24).

Leviticus 20:13

[13] If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.
 - Leviticus 20:13 gives an explicit description of homosexual acts, both parties were to be put to death – their “blood is on their own heads” which means they are personally responsible for their own actions.

Duetonomy 29:22-24
[22] And the generation to come, your children who rise up after you, and the foreigner who comes from a far land, would say, when they see the afflictions of that land and the sicknesses with which the LORD has made it sick - [23] the whole land brimstone and salt, and a burnt-out waste, unsown, and growing nothing, where no grass can sprout, an overthrow like that of Sodom and Gomor'rah, Admah and Zeboi'im, which the LORD overthrew in his anger and wrath - [24] yea, all the nations would say, `Why has the LORD done thus to this land? What means the heat of this great anger?'

Duetonomy 32:32-33
[32] For their vine comes from the vine of Sodom, and from the fields of Gomor'rah; their grapes are grapes of poison, their clusters are bitter; [33] their wine is the poison of serpents, and the cruel venom of asps.

Isaiah 1:9-11
[9] If the LORD of hosts had not left us a few survivors, we should have been like Sodom, and become like Gomor'rah. [10] Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Give ear to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomor'rah!
[11] "What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? says the LORD; I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts; I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of he-goats.

Isaiah 3:9-12
[9] Their partiality witnesses against them; they proclaim their sin like Sodom, they do not hide it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil upon themselves. [10] Tell the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds. [11] Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, for what his hands have done shall be done to him.

Jereimiah 23:14-15
[14] But in the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: they commit adultery and walk in lies; they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns from his wickedness; all of them have become like Sodom to me, and its inhabitants like Gomor'rah." [15] Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets: "Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and give them poisoned water to drink; for from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has gone forth into all the land."

Romans 1:18-27
[18]  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth.  [19] For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. [20] Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse;  [21] for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.  [22] Claiming to be wise, they became fools, [23] and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles. [24] Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, [25] because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. [26] For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, [27] and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10
[9] Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts, [10] nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 1:9-10
[8] Now we know that the law is good, if any one uses it lawfully, [9] understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, [10] immoral persons, sodomites, kidnapers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, [11] in accordance with the glorious gospel of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted.

2 Peter 2:4-10
[4] For if God did not spare the angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of nether gloom to be kept until the judgment; [5] if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven other persons, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;  [6] if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomor'rah to ashes he condemned them to extinction and made them an example to those who were to be ungodly; [7] and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the licentiousness of the wicked [8] (for by what that righteous man saw and heard as he lived among them, he was vexed in his righteous soul day after day with their lawless deeds), [9] then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trial, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, [10] and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.

2 Peter 2:17-22
[17] These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm; for them the nether gloom of darkness has been reserved.  [18] For, uttering loud boasts of folly, they entice with licentious passions of the flesh men who have barely escaped from those who live in error. [19] They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption; for whatever overcomes a man, to that he is enslaved. [20] For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overpowered, the last state has become worse for them than the first. [21] For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. [22] It has happened to them according to the true proverb, The dog turns back to his own vomit, and the sow is washed only to wallow in the mire.

1 Jude 1:6-7
[6] And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; [7] just as Sodom and Gomor'rah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
