Sodomy In the News

This page is a web log of news articles concerning sodomy (homosexuality). Sodomy is the greatest threat to any nation as it destroys the family, corrupts morals, and reduces the birth rate. The Bible is very clear about sodomy:

Lev. 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. 26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) 28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. 29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.

Lev. 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

I Cor. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

The following quotes from news articles prove the devisive, corruptive nature of sodomy. My comments are in square brackets.

N.J. GOVERNOR RESIGNS OVER GAY AFFAIR WITH AIDE IN $5M BLACKMAIL FLAP; By ANDY GELLER, DAN MANGAN and STEFAN C. FRIEDMAN

August 13, 2004 -- New Jersey Democratic Gov. Jim McGreevey stunned the nation yesterday by announcing he is resigning because he is gay and had an extramarital affair with a man who aides said tried to blackmail him for up to $5 million. (source...)

N.J. Governor Resigns, Admits Gay Affair; Aug 12, 6:12 PM (ET); By JOHN P. McALPIN

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - In a stunning declaration, Gov. James E. McGreevey announced his resignation Thursday and acknowledged that he had an extramarital affair with another man. "My truth is that I am a gay American," he said.

"Shamefully, I engaged in adult consensual affairs with another man, which violates my bonds of matrimony," the married father of two said. "It was wrong, it was foolish, it was inexcusable."

The Democrat said his resignation would be effective Nov. 15. Senate President Richard J. Codey, a Democrat, will become acting governor and serve out the remainder of McGreevey's term, which ends in early 2006.

McGreevey, 47, refused to answer questions at a news conference where he was flanked by his wife and parents. He said that "it makes little difference that as governor I am gay," but added that staying in office and keeping the affair and his sexual orientation secret will leave the governor's office "vulnerable to rumors, false allegations and threats of disclosure." (source...)

[Want to ruin your life? Stoop down into the abomination of sodomy, and you will see your life and dreams disintegrate before your eyes. McGreevey points out one very big reason why no homosexual should ever be elected to public office: the can be easily blackmailed. ]

Calif. Court Voids S.F. Same-Sex Marriages; Aug 12, 1:28 PM (ET); By DAVID KRAVETS

(AP) Molly McKay, right, reads a decision from the California Supreme Court beside other gay couples... Full Image SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The California Supreme Court on Thursday voided the nearly 4,000 same-sex marriages sanctioned in San Francisco this year and ruled unanimously that the mayor overstepped his authority by issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

The court said the city violated the law when it issued the certificates, since both legislation and a voter-approved measure defined marriage as a union between a man and woman.

The justices separately decided with a 5-2 vote to nullify the marriages peformed between Feb. 12 and March 11, when the court halted the weddings. Their legality, Justice Joyce Kennard wrote, must wait until courts resolve the constitutionality of state laws that restrict marriages to opposite-sex couples. (source...)

[There is no need to wait to find out about the legality of these sodomite relationship. The highest court in the universe ruled them illegal from the beginning, and no mere human court can overrule God's decision.]

Antibiotic-resistant strain of syphilis is spreading; The Associated Press; July 7, 2004, 5:00 PM EDT

A fast-spreading mutant strain of syphilis has proved resistant to the antibiotic pills that are offered to some patients as an alternative to painful penicillin shots.

Since the late 1990s, doctors and public health clinics have been giving azithromycin to some syphilis patients because the long-acting antibiotic pill was highly effective and easy to use. Four pills taken at once were usually enough to cure syphilis.

But now researchers at University of Washington in Seattle have found at least 10 percent of syphilis samples from patients at sexually transmitted disease clinics in four cities had a strain resistant to azithromycin.

"That suggests that this mutation is pretty widely distributed geographically," said Sheila A. Lukehart, research professor of infectious diseases.

The percentage of samples from San Francisco with the mutant strain jumped from 4 percent in 1999-2002 to 37 percent in 2003, with the increase taking place largely among gay or bisexual men with multiple partners.

....

Experts said the findings also show that syphilis patients treated with azithromycin must have follow-up tests to be sure they are cured. After syphilis sores disappear, the disease can silently attack the brain and cause dementia, paralysis and death. (source...)

["...dementia, paralysis and death" is a pretty high price to pay for rejecting what God says about sex. Only fools risk it. To on purpose continue in a behavior that spreads such a diease is to commit murder.]

U.N.: HIV Cases Hit Record High in 2003; Tue Jul 6,10:47 AM ET; By EMMA ROSS, AP Medical Writer

LONDON - New HIV (news - web sites) infections hit a record high last year as the virus continues to outpace the global effort to contain it, according to a U.N. report published Tuesday.

The number of people living with the AIDS (news - web sites) virus has risen in every region of the world. Last year, 5 million people became infected --- more than in any single year since the crisis began. Nine out of 10 who urgently need treatment are not getting it and prevention is still only reaching one in five people who should have it, the report said.

"The virus is running faster than all of us," UNAIDS (news - web sites) chief Dr. Peter Piot told The Associated Press. The agency compiles a global AIDS report every two years.

This year's report provides the most accurate picture yet of HIV's march across the planet. It says new epidemics seem to be spreading unchecked in Eastern Europe and Asia....the U.N. AIDS agency figures that about 38 million people are infected.

....

More than 20 million people have died since the disease was first diagnosed in 1981 and about 3 million people are dying each year, the report said.

AIDS remains untamed in Africa. The continent is still seeing increasing rates of infection in the poorest countries, but the disease is spreading fastest in Eastern Europe and Asia, which is home to 60 percent of the world's population.

In Asia, the disease is confined mostly to drug addicts, homosexual or bisexual men, prostitutes and their clients, and the sexual partners of people who frequent prostitutes. (source...)

[It all started among Sodomites. It then spread to other sinners. Once again God is proved to be right. Sodomy is both suicide and murder.]

Path Clear for Same-Sex Marriages in Mass; May 15, 10:25 AM (ET); By DENISE LAVOIE

BOSTON (AP) - With the U.S. Supreme Court refusing to step in and block gay marriages in Massachusetts, same-sex couples planning to marry can be confident that, beginning Monday, they could tie the knot.

Couples have been "nervous wrecks about whether they could marry starting Monday," said Arline Isaacson, co-chair of the Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus. "Now they can all breathe a sigh of relief."

Without comment, the justices declined Friday to block municipal clerks from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, clearing the way for the nation's first state-sanctioned same-sex weddings.

The state's highest court had ruled in November that the state Constitution allowed gay couples to marry, and declared that the process could begin Monday. Gay marriage opponents challenged that ruling in the federal courts and took the case all the way to the Supreme Court.

Hundreds of gay marriage opponents, rallying Friday in historic Faneuil Hall, booed when they learned of the Supreme Court's decision.

Speakers railed against what they called "sexual sin" and warned that gay marriage could have negative effects on families.

"The problem is they're being told that their sin is wonderful and fine," said Sandy Rios, former president of Concerned Women for America, a conservative public policy organization. "May 17, two days from now, will be a day that will change the world." (source...)

[Yes, this changes our world. This is the beginning of the end for the USA. No nation has ever slipped into sodomy and survived. Muslims see this sodomy and rightly view our society as rotten and corrupt. God also looks at our society as rotten and corrupt.]

General to testify on abuse probe; As many as 300 more photos of abuse said to exist

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- With the Army general who investigated abuse of prisoners in Iraq set to testify before a Senate committee Tuesday, Pentagon sources told CNN there are 200 to 300 more photographs of abuse at Abu Ghraib prison.

....

While at the Pentagon, Bush and his war Cabinet reviewed more than a dozen classified color photographs of abuse. Bush was "disgusted," his spokesman said.

"There will be a full accounting for the cruel and disgraceful abuse of Iraqi detainees," Bush said at the Pentagon briefing.

"Those responsible for these abuses have caused harm that goes well beyond the walls of a prison," Bush said.

Bush apologized last week to the detainees shown in the published photographs.

In all, there are about 1,000 photographs on three CD-ROMs. Many of the photographs are of sites in Iraq, similar to tourist photographs. But sources said 200 to 300 photos detail abuse at the prison.

Some of the worst photos are of prisoners being sodomized by chemical lights, also known as "glow sticks," the sources said. (source...)

[Do you remember when Democrats started the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy concerning sodomy in the military? Now that policy has brought our nation to shame. But since the seeds sown by the humanist Democrat then president Clinton have born fruit during the term of President Bush, the Democrats are both asking and telling to blame it on him. Is sodomy only shameful if you get exposed? or is it always shameful? Is it only wrong if you do it under a Republican president's term? or was it also wrong when Clinton said it was ok?]

News analysis; Gay marriage momentum stuns both backers and foes; Carolyn Lochhead, Chronicle Washington Bureau; Friday, March 5, 2004

Same-sex marriage -- considered so radical that mainstream gay rights leaders feared its emergence in an election year -- has gained a level of visibility that even its most ardent proponents did not imagine just two months ago.

Whether intentional or not, President Bush's pledge in his State of the Union address in late January to defend traditional marriage touched off a reaction that began in San Francisco and now is rippling across the country.

These marriage licenses -- whether acts of civil disobedience or interpretations of law by local officials -- are fueling countless television images that put a mainstream face on lesbian and gay couples. They are laying the groundwork for legal challenges to marriage laws across the nation.

And they are infusing gay and lesbian rights with the consciousness of a major civil rights movement.

"Gavin Newsom went from being a handsome rookie mayor to an icon on human rights, just like that," said Jim Pinkerton, a former political adviser to the president's father, President George H.W. Bush. "It does beg comparison to other spontaneous citizen movements -- the sit-ins at lunch counters in the South in the '60s, the anti-apartheid movement in the '80s, the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia in the late '80s. What's notable is the establishment can't really figure out what to do with it."

New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer as much as invited challenges to New York's marriage laws Wednesday in an opinion reacting to the issuing of marriage licenses by the mayor of New Paltz, N.Y. Spitzer said that while New York does not authorize same-sex marriage, its marriage laws "raise important constitutional questions involving the equal protection of the laws."

He also said New York should accept as valid such marriages from other states. That would include Massachusetts, whose high court ruled that same-sex marriages must be granted starting in mid-May.

Few expected things to move as fast as they have, or to spread so far.

Just four years ago, Vermont was embroiled in a fierce debate over whether to permit civil unions, a parallel institution short of marriage that many considered radical.

Today, Bush's position is that civil unions are acceptable if that is what a state wants.

"The fact that civil unions were considered a radical step in 2000 and they're now considered nothing more than second class-citizenship by the gay community -- and President Bush is not expressing opposition to civil unions -- shows you how dramatically the issue has changed in just a few short months," said Matt Foreman, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. (source...)

[Sodomy is a sin, not a civil right. The same-sex marriage movement is a sin movement, not a civil rights movement. No one has the right to harm his fellow man. Sodomy spread AIDS and other sexually transmitted dieseases resulting in the deaths of millions of people. Sodomy is therefore actually murder. Homosexuals have the highest suicide rate of any group as a result of their feeling of guilt and degredation for what they do. The Social Security fund is supported by people having children who grow up to pay taxes. Sodomites do not bear children, and therefore do not help contribute to the Social Security fund---but they take money out of it which was contributes by other peoples' children. They are thus thieves as well has murderers. Homosexuals only want marriage because they want the tax breaks the founders of our government provided for people to raise children. Sodomite marriages are a sham, especially when the statistics show that the average sodomite has had scores of sexual partners, and are faithful to no one.

President Bush made a terrible mistake in condoning "civil unions" for sodomite. This compromise makes his stand against sodomite marriages look like hyprocracy.]

Police: Partiers Injected With Blood At Sex Parties; Syringes Of Blood, Sex Harness Found In Man's Garage; POSTED: 11:18 am EST February 26, 2004; UPDATED: 2:29 am EST February 27, 2004

Young men attending sex parties in Orlando, Fla., were reportedly drugged and injected with tainted blood inside a man's garage, according to a Local 6 News report.

Authorities arrested Mark Randall, 45, (pictured, left) earlier this month for allegedly trafficking 48 grams of methamphetamine.

After an investigation, authorities determined that Randall was reportedly having sex parties in the garage of his home at 211 E. Kaley St. and possibly injecting the men with blood.

According to court records, four witnesses said "Randall lured subjects to his residence via the Internet for the purpose of sex and once they were at his residence he would get them high" with drugs.

The report also said Randall had a sex harness in the garage and "once the subjects were in the harness, Randall and other participants would have sex with them and videotape them."

Then, "Randall would inject the subjects with the syringes of tainted blood." (source...)

[Although it is plain to see from the contents of the article, it is not plainly stated that these wicked men are all homosexuals. Once God's morality is rejected, there is no limit to depths to which people can sink. It is a shame even to speak of such abominable behavior. The fact is, sodomy is an extremely filthy practice which involves direct contact with feces and a multitude of dieseases. The chance that a sodomite will get AIDS is exceedingly great. Sodomites who are already HIV positive want as many other people as possible to get AIDS so as to force scientists to work harder to find a cure. Dear reader, is sodomy the direction you want this country to go? If not, you had better take a strong stand against it now.]

Calif. Court Refuses to Stop Gay Weddings; Feb 28, 10:38 AM (ET); By DAVID KRAVETS

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - In yet another setback to conservatives opposed to same-sex marriage, the California Supreme Court declined a request to immediately stop San Francisco from marrying gay couples and to nullify the weddings already performed.

[These wicked California judges are very likely themselves homosexuals. It is obvious that this whole incident was planned out in detail well in advance. The attack against the institution of marriage presently taking place in California---and rapidly spreading throughout the country---is the most dangerous attack that the USA has ever experienced. It is more dangerous than 9/11 and more dangerous than Pearl Harbor. No country has ever survived the toleration of sodomy. It is a one way ticket to Hell.]

Rosie O'Donnell Weds Longtime Girlfriend; Feb 26, 5:16 PM (ET); By LISA LEFF

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Rosie O'Donnell married her longtime girlfriend Thursday, taking what she called a proud stand for gay civil rights in the city where more than 3,300 other same-sex couples have tied the knot since Feb. 12.

"I want to thank the city of San Francisco for this amazing stance the mayor has taken for all the people here, not just us but all the thousands and thousands of loving, law-abiding couples," the former talk show host, holding a large bouquet of purple and yellow flowers, said after she and Kelli Carpenter emerged from their brief ceremony inside Mayor Gavin Newsom's office. (source...)

[What hyprocrisy! Sodomites are not "law-abiding couples." It is against California law for same-sex couples to marry. Rosie and her lesbian friend broke the law by marrying each other, and they know it. But most importantly of all they broke God's law which will never change.]

February 25, 2004; But With These Words, Can I Thee Quasi-Wed?; By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK

As the debate over amending the Constitution to block same-sex marriage heats up, a few legal scholars are arguing that the wording of the one amendment to be introduced in Congress so far is too ambiguous to accomplish what the president and its sponsors say they intend.

In calling on Congress to pass an amendment for approval by the states, President Bush made it clear that he wanted an amendment that would block recognition of same-sex marriages but allow individual state legislatures to recognize quasi-marital same-sex civil unions or domestic partnerships.

"The amendment should fully protect marriage, while leaving the state legislatures free to make their own choices in defining legal arrangements other than marriage," Mr. Bush said. (source...)

[Hold on! I take back my thanks. President Bush is trying to ride the fence here. He is trying to seem to take a clear stand for heterosexual marriage, while at the same time not condemning sodomite relationships. This is not possible. If sodomy is allowed in any way, shape or form, then the institution of marriage will be irrepairably damaged.

The original laws in the USA bestowed benefits upon married couples to make it financially possible for them to have and raise children. Sodomites can't have children, and are not morally qualified to raise children, and so neither need nor deserve such benefits. Giving sodomites benefits will harm married couples.

Furthermore, the original law in the USA made sodomy a felony with severe penalties. Allowing any form of homosexual relationships (whither they be called "marriage" or "civil unions") will require making sodomy legal, and therefore will irrepairably harm the institution of marriage by causing many people to think that sodomy is not wrong, and therefore encouraging them to begin homosexual relationships. In all reality, "civil union" is just another term for "marriage."]

Bush to Back Gay Marriage Ban Amendment; Feb 24, 11:10 AM (ET); By DEB RIECHMANN

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush backed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage Tuesday, saying he wants to stop activist judges from changing the definition of the "most enduring human institution."

Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural and moral roots, Bush said, urging Congress to approve such an amendment.

"After more than two centuries of American jurisprudence and millennia of human experience, a few judges and local authorities are presuming to change the most fundamental institution of civilization," the president said. "Their action has created confusion on an issue that requires clarity." (source...)

[Thank you President Bush. Now please be sure that the Bible defination of marriage remains the USA's defination also.]

San Francisco Weds 2,500 Gay Couples, Rulings Seen; Feb 17, 2:34 PM (ET);By Spencer Swartz

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Conservative family groups asked two courts on Tuesday to halt a flood of City Hall weddings between same-sex couples that have made San Francisco "Ground Zero" for the controversial gay marriage movement.

The city's assessor-record's office said that about 2,500 gay and lesbian couples have been married since Mayor Gavin Newsom ordered city officials to defy state law and grant same-sex marriage licenses last Thursday.

....

But the move defied a state law, known as Proposition 22 and approved in 2000 by California voters, that restricted marriage only to heterosexual couples. The measure passed with support from about 60 percent of those who voted on the initiative. (source...)

[Note that these sodomites "defy state law." Lawbreaking---especially breaking God's laws---is the number one character trait of sodomites. They could not be sodomites without breaking the law. This is one of the main reasons why they are so dangerous. Sodomy springs from atheism.

There was also a sodomite demonstration at the Oklahoma capital building today. A sodomite leader was quoted as saying that the anti-sodomite marriage folks are advocating theocracy over democracy. But note well that Proposition 22 banning same sex marriages was approved by democratic vote of the people of California. Sodomites are not for democracy. They are for anarchy, and in the end they will be for a dictatorship in which they can force their perverted ways upon others. It is true, however, that they do not want God to rule over them. They have rejected God and God's morality. Such people are capable of any sin. People who will not listen to God's laws will not listen to anyone's laws.

Romans 1: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Beware of shameful, vile, reprobate, unnatural, unclean, unmerciful, deceitful sodomite logic.]

Teens Nationwide Promote Abstinence; Fri Feb 13, 6:54 AM ET; By MIKE SCHNEIDER, Associated Press Writer

ORLANDO, Fla. - Melissa Millis feels bombarded by everyday messages of sexual promiscuity, whether it's Janet Jackson's bare breast during the Super Bowl or her classmates' casual sex talk.

So Millis, a high school senior in Michigan, and thousands of other students across the nation plan to wear white T-shirts to school Friday, the day before Valentine's Day (news - web sites), to publicly show their commitment to not having sex outside marriage. They're calling their effort the "Day of Purity," and they will distribute pro-abstinence pamphlets to their peers.

....

But the Day of Purity is being watched with a wary eye by groups that promote sexual tolerance, such as the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network and the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. The Day of Purity Web site accuses those groups of "a concerted effort in the schools and media to turn our youth away from traditional values."

"The word 'purity' in this context is morally self-righteous," said Alice Leeds, a spokeswoman for Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. "It's redefining it in their context to conform to their frankly bigoted agenda."

Eliza Byard, deputy executive director for the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, said in an e-mail that her group applauded any effort to promote healthy sexual choices by young people.

"Unfortunately, this program seems to have a limited idea of what that means and doesn't appear designed to provide the kind of information students really need," she said. (source...)

[The only information Sodomites want young people to have is pornography designed to convert them to sodomy. How can someone who has made unhealthy sexual choices---and is advocating those choices---honestly say that he or she (or it) "applaudes any effort to promote healthy sexual choices by young people"? That statement is hypocracy. It is the sodomites that are self-righteous and bigited and intolerant.]

February 7, 2004; Love That Dare Not Squeak Its Name By DINITIA SMITH

Then in 1999, Bruce Bagemihl published "Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity" (St. Martin's Press), one of the first books of its kind to provide an overview of scholarly studies of same-sex behavior in animals. Mr. Bagemihl said homosexual behavior had been documented in some 450 species. (Homosexuality, he says, refers to any of these behaviors between members of the same sex: long-term bonding, sexual contact, courtship displays or the rearing of young.) Last summer the book was cited by the American Psychiatric Association and other groups in a "friend of the court" brief submitted to the Supreme Court in Lawrence v. Texas, a case challenging a Texas anti-sodomy law. The court struck down the law.

"Sexual Exuberance" was also cited in 2000 by gay rights groups opposed to Ballot Measure 9, a proposed Oregon statute prohibiting teaching about homosexuality or bisexuality in public schools. The measure lost.

In his book Mr. Bagemihl describes homosexual activity in a broad spectrum of animals. He asserts that while same-sex behavior is sometimes found in captivity, it is actually seen more frequently in studies of animals in the wild.

....This growing body of science has been increasingly drawn into charged debates about homosexuality in American society, on subjects from gay marriage to sodomy laws, despite reluctance from experts in the field to extrapolate from animals to humans. Gay groups argue that if homosexual behavior occurs in animals, it is natural, and therefore the rights of homosexuals should be protected. On the other hand, some conservative religious groups have condemned the same practices in the past, calling them "animalistic."

But if homosexuality occurs among animals, does that necessarily mean that it is natural for humans, too? And that raises a familiar question: if homosexuality is not a choice, but a result of natural forces that cannot be controlled, can it be immoral? (source...)

[Bagemihl's work is not a "growing body of science." His "science" hasn't been challenged yet. And when it is challenged it will be exposed as "science falsely so-called." Note Bagemihl's definition of homosexuality---it does not include actually having sex. Do the male animals have anal sex? I very seriously doubt it. What he calls "sexual contact" could be many things which no normal person would define as homosexuality. Some animals bathe each other by licking each other. There is nothing sexual about it, but a sex pervert would want to believe that there is. If I give a male aquaintance a friendly pat on the back is that sexual contact? Only in the eyes of a pervert would it be so considered.

Even if it could be proved that some animals are engage in homosexual behavior, that would not make it right among humans. Some animals by nature viciously kill other animals. If viciousness is not a choice, but a result of natural forces that cannot be controlled, can it be immoral for a human to murder your sister? Some animals will eat their babies as soon as they are born. Should humans therefore be allowed to do the same? The real issue here is whither or not God exists and whither of not God defines morality.]

General's orders: Exclusive interview

Retired four-star general Wesley Clark thinks "don't ask, don't tell" needs to go and same-sex unions are here to stay. Can these pro-gay positions win him voters' support---and the Democratic presidential nomination?

By Jon Barrett

Excerpted from The Advocate, February 3, 2004

Clark spoke to The Advocate the day after Al Gore endorsed the candidacy of former Vermont governor Howard Dean---a move that Clark shrugs off as having more to do with Gore than with Dean---the same day two retired brigadier generals and one rear admiral came out of the closet in The New York Times, a move Clark says deals significant blows to "don't ask, don't tell."

When it comes to gay issues, what makes you a better presidential candidate?

I've been in the armed forces. I've been at the very center of the firestorm. I know what it's like out there. And I've had people who have come up to see me about it since I've been out [of the service]---gay and lesbian people who need help.

What are they saying?

They tell me that they want it fixed, and I agree. The armed forces are the last institution in America that discriminates against people. It ought to be the first that doesn't. They ought to have the right to be who they are. They shouldn't have to conceal their identities. You know, there are different models [that allow for gay people to serve openly]---the British have a model---and there is no impact on combat readiness. It's a bogus issue.

I know your son was married recently. If your son had been born gay, would you want him to have the same rights that he enjoys today?

I would want him to have the right to have a stable relationship. But whether you call it marriage or not is up to the church or the synagogue or the mosque. And it's up to the state legislatures. I think marriage is a term of art. It's a term of usage. But the legal side of it is not: It's not negotiable.

But about 40% of U.S. marriages every year happen without any religious participation.

I support whatever the state says. If the state of Massachusetts says we're going to form a civil union but we're going to call it marriage, then as far as I'm concerned, that's marriage.

So you support Massachusetts's calling it marriage?

Yeah, absolutely.

How do you think Congress would react to that?

Well, they'll love it. This is exactly what they're looking for. Newt Gingrich and Tom DeLay and all those guys are looking for a real hand grenade to throw into the Democratic Party. It's an absurd issue, and it's one of the reasons I'm running. No one can accuse me of being soft on defense, and no one can accuse me of not knowing about what the armed forces are about. And when I say, "It's OK," then it's OK, period. But elections aren't always about common sense. And I think [Republicans] would love to frighten people. (source...)

[What a hypocrite! The main method of the Democrat Party is to frighten people with lies and slanders.]

"The men who want the virus are called 'bug chasers,' and the men who freely give them the virus are called 'gift givers.' While the rest of the world fights the AIDS epidemic and most people fear HIV infection, this subculture celebrates the virus and eroticizes it," reports Freeman in the February 6, 2003 edition of ROLLING STONE.

At least twenty-five percent of all newly infected gay men fall into [bug-chasing] category, according to one claim in the "special report". (source...)

Dean Says Faith Swayed Decision on Gay Unions, By Jim VandeHei, Washington Post Staff Writer, Thursday, January 8, 2004; Page A01

MUSCATINE, Iowa, Jan. 7 -- Democratic front-runner Howard Dean said Wednesday that his decision as governor to sign the bill legalizing civil unions for gays in Vermont was influenced by his Christian views, as he waded deeper into the growing political, religious and cultural debate over homosexuality and the Bible's view of it.

"The overwhelming evidence is that there is very significant, substantial genetic component to it," Dean said in an interview Wednesday. "From a religious point of view, if God had thought homosexuality is a sin, he would not have created gay people."

Dean's comments come as gay marriage is emerging as a defining social issue of the 2004 elections, and one that is dividing the Episcopal Church in the United States and many other Christians and non-Christians. Driving the debate is a theological dispute over the Bible's view on homosexuality and a political one over the secular and spiritual wisdom of allowing gays to marry. (Dean Says Faith Swayed Decision on Gay Unions)

[Dean's comment ("if God had thought homosexuality is a sin, he would not have created gay people") is really quite stupid and illogical. Using the same logic one could also say, If God had thought murder is a sin, he would not have created murderers. Or, if God had thought terrorism is a sin, he would not have created terrorists. Or, if God had thought robbery is a sin, he would not have created robbers. The fact is, God did not create sodomites. "Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions" (Ecc. 7:28). As for what God thinks about sodomy, look up the context of the following verse, and you will find that God, Himself, said this: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them" Lev. 20:13). For a more detailed discussion of this issue, read: Are Homosexuals Born That Way? One does not have to listen to Howard Dean for long to realize that he is no more Christian than Osama Bin Laden. God's word means nothing to him. Either he has never read the Bible (which proves it means nothing to him), or he has read it but doesn't let it influence his views (which proves it means nothing to him). See also Seeking a new emphasis, Dean touts his Christianity which tells about Dean suddenly getting religion in order to get more votes. That is even more hypocracy.]
