On the comment section of a devoutly Catholic blogger (who will remain unnamed, I've no interest in starting yet another Internet feud), I found her justification for what is nothing more than plain old gay bashing, feebly disguised as 'facts'.
Here's the webpage our intrepid Catholic serves up to support her bigoted beliefs aren't only religiously PC but also rooted in 'filthy facts about faggots'. There's really only so much I can stomach, so here are just a few gems. Not for the faint of heart!
The Statistics on Homosexuality and its Effects (Catholic Apologetics International)
Some statistics about the Homosexual lifestyle:
Many homosexual sexual encounters occur while drunk, high on drugs, or in an orgy setting (7)
This is true of a lot of people and hardly typical of gays.
Homosexuals got homosexuality removed from the list of mental illnesses in the early 70s by storming the annual American Psychiatric Association (APA) conference on successive years. "Guerrilla theater tactics and more straight-forward shouting matches characterized their presence" (2). Since homosexuality has been removed from the APA list of mental illnesses, so has pedophilia (except when the adult feels "subjective distress") (27)
That's right, homosexuals managed to get their sexual orientation declassified as a 'disorder', simply by bullying the establishment...
73% of psychiatrists say homosexuals are less happy than the average person, and of those psychiatrists, 70% say that the unhappiness is NOT due to social stigmatization (13)
What to say? I'll leave it gays to comment on this.
25-33% of homosexuals and lesbians are alcoholics (11)
Judge John Martaugh, chief magistrate of the New York City Criminal Court has said, "Homosexuals account for half the murders in large cities" (10)
Did he keep his job, despite such utter nonsense?
It takes approximately $300,000 to take care of each AIDS victim, so thanks to the promiscuous lifestyle of homosexuals, medical insurance rates have been skyrocketing for all of us(10)
Hurray, an explanation for high US medical insurance rates: t'was gays wot did it!
Homosexuals were responsible for spreading AIDS in the United States, and then raised up violent groups like Act Up and Ground Zero to complain about it. Even today, homosexuals account for well over 50% of the AIDS cases in the United States, which is quite a large number considering that they account for only 1-2% of the population.
Bigoted nonsense not worth rebutting.
The median age of death of homosexuals is 42 (only 9% live past age 65). This drops to 39 if the cause of death is AIDS. The median age of death of a married heterosexual man is 75 (8)
The median age of death of lesbians is 45 (only 24% live past age 65). The median age of death of a married heterosexual woman is 79 (8)
Whoooaaahh!!! The bloody 'faggots' pay with their lives. There is justice after all...
Homosexuals are 100 times more likely to be murdered (usually by another homosexual) than the average person, 25 times more likely to commit suicide, and 19 times more likely to die in a traffic accident (8)
The Law of unintended consequences? Nah, just plain old BS.
About 50% of the women on death row are lesbians (12).
Sure, sure... (sigh)
Because homosexuals can't reproduce naturally, they resort to recruiting children. Homosexuals can be heard chanting "TEN PERCENT IS NOT ENOUGH, RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT" in their homosexual parades. A group called the "Lesbian Avengers" prides itself on trying to recruit young girls. They print "WE RECRUIT" on their literature. Some other homosexuals aren't as overt about this, but rather try to infiltrate society and get into positions where they will have access to the malleable minds of young children (e.g., the clergy, teachers, Boy Scout leaders, etc.) (8). See the DC Lesbian Avengers web page, and DC Lesbian Avengers Press Release, where they threaten to recruit little boys and girls. Also, see AFA Action Alert.
If you play homosexual recorded voices backwards you can hear Satan too...
Part of the homosexual agenda is to get the public to affirm their filthy lifestyle, as one homosexual admitted in the October 1987 homosexual rally on Washington: "We are no longer seeking just a right to privacy and a protection from wrong. We also have a right -- as heterosexual Americans already have -- to see government and society affirm our lives" (27)
Finally, the author's objectivity shines through. About time too...
Part of the homosexual agenda is to turn people from Christianity: "The teaching that only male-female sexual activity within the bounds and constraints of marriage is the only acceptable form should be reason enough for any homosexual to denounce the Christian religion" (1)
More plots against the Church! But with defenders like this one on their side, their battle will inevitably be lost - good!
Homosexuals aren't discriminated against in employment, so why should they be a protected class?
They're good enough to go to the workplace so they should just shup up. Pesky things...
The average yearly income of a homosexual is $55,430.00 (most of which is disposable because no children to take care of!). The average of the general population is $32,144.00. The average of blacks is $12,166.00 (24)
Damn it! No children, so they end up with more disposable income. Maybe we need to introduce a 'gay tax'...
A phrase that has come up recently in this earth is "sexual orientation." This is a phrase made up by homosexuals to try to make themselves look less filthy than they really are. The purpose of the phrase is to take the spotlight from what these perverts do, and put it on the notion that they are just poor, mistreated people, who simply are attracted to members of the same sex - as if they aren't engaging in activity forbidden by God Almighty. "Sexual orientation," as used today, has nothing to do with sexual activity (yeah, right), but only refers to who or what a particular person is attracted to. If you think that people of other "sexual orientations" are just fine, let's see what other "sexual orientations" you would necessarily have to accept as wholesome and pure. If you're not going to discriminate based on "sexual orientation", then you must not discriminate against any of the following. Bestiality, pedophile, necrophilia., exhibitionism, fetishism, frotteurism, masochism, sadism, transvestitism, voyeurism. If you discriminate against any of these, you're a hypocrite. These "sexual orientations" are generally known as "paraphilias", and are mental disorders - just like homosexuality used to be (29)
Perverts, bestiality, pedophile, necrophilia, exhibitionism, fetishism, frotteurism [huh??? Is this sex with lattes or something?], masochism, sadism, transvestitism, voyeurism...
Yep, it's all there.
Don't take my word for it, here's the entire piece. Fully referenced, dear reader... but most referenced papers are nearly 20 years old.
