What do Homosexuals Model that Children Should be Encouraged to Follow?

On July 1, 2002, the national office of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America passed a resolution to not allow any of its 500 affiliates to exclude mentors or volunteers on the basis of "race, age, color, religion, national origin, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability." Local web sites of BBBSA affiliates proclaim that the purpose of the organization is to match adult volunteers “with at-risk children primarily from single parent homes. The Big Brothers and Big Sisters serve as mentors and role models to their school-aged Little Brothers and Little Sisters.” Each volunteer is expected to spend “several hours weekly” in a “one-to-one relationship, for a minimum of one year.”

As one who was left to raise the last four of my children alone, I certainly understand the need for children to have the opportunity of a good role model for the missing parent. However, what could I, as a single mother, expect my sons to learn from the lifestyle example of a homosexual mentor that I would want them to copy in their lives?

Until 1961, the sort of “non-reproductive, non-commercial, sex” homosexuals engage in was a criminal act throughout America. Even today, 14 states have laws against sodomy, which is what we are talking about here, defined in the dictionary as “unnatural, especially anal copulation with a human or an animal.” In a few years time we have moved the national understanding of sodomy from being a felony, to homosexual buddies for fatherless children being a step forward in human rights. If that is the case, what could single mothers reasonably expect a homosexual to model for their sons?

For starters, according to studies by the Center for Disease Control released July 9, 2002, the homosexual Big Brother is nine times more apt to have AIDS than a heterosexual Big Brother. Also it reports that approximately two-thirds (60%) of the homosexual Big Brothers are also apt to be intravenous drug users.

In analyzing “It’s Elementary,” a video being pushed by the Homosexual community on public elementary schools, three years ago I stated: “Death is the real face of homosexuality.” A report entitled: "Homosexuality - A public Health Problem” by Raphael Kazmann found that the average age of homosexuals who die with AIDS in the United States is 39. The average age of homosexuals who die of other causes is only 41. The study, accomplished over a period of five years, showed homosexual conduct reduces life expectancy by at least 30 years. Other studies puts the reduction of life expectancy of homosexuals at 40 years. The Kazmann report, which reviewed thousands of cases, found that only one percent of homosexuals lived to be 65 or older.

Other factors contributing to early death for homosexuals include:
(1) “Suicide - The suicide rate among homosexuals is 60 times as high as the general population. Although homosexuals label their lifestyle as "gay,” many prefer death rather than to continue living in it." Homosexuals say suicide is the result of religious and societal pressures. But, society viciously denounces the racists of the Klu Klux Klan without raising the Klan suicide rate.
(2) “Auto accidents kill homosexuals at a rate 45 times higher than the heterosexual community, Katzmann’s study indicated.
(3) “Homosexuals are 14 times more like to have syphilis; 23 times more likely to contract some venereal disease; thousands of times more likely to contract AIDS. Lesbians are twice as likely to suffer from genital warts; four times as likely to have scabies.
(5) “And, the ratio of homosexual men murdered was found to be 50 times that of the general population.”

Now, I ask you, what part of this picture of a homosexual’s life would I want my sons to copy? Why would any mother, if given the facts, want her children to be mentored by people living such an unhappy, unsuccessful and life-shortening lifestyle?
