Posted on 12/07/2004 6:56:46 AM PST by Laissez-faire capitalist
August 9, 2004 - An Australian medical ethics expert told an audience at a marriage conference recently that homosexuals are excluding themselves from marriage and family by refusing to join the great "circle of life."
Dr. David van Gend told the audience, "By its very nature, homosexuality has excluded itself. It has stepped outside the circle of life--the timeless, endless natural circle of male and female, parent and offspring."
He notes that the origins of homosexual behavior are complex, but "whatever its origins, the outcome of homosexuality is best understood as a very complex state of confusion over sexual identity."
Van Gend cites the National Health and Social Life Survey published in 1994 in the U.S. In this survey, 8% of the 16-year-olds thought they were gay--but, "significantly, that by age 18 only 4% still thought they were gay, and by age 25, only 2 percent still thought they were gay. What that means is that most sexual confusion in school children clears away if left to iteslf. It doesn't need therapy or counseling. It is a passing phase..."
CNSnews.com has more details on this story: "Homosexuals Are Excluding Themselves From Marriage, Family." The Thomas More Centre in Brisbane has posted a speech on homosexuality from a medical perspective by Dr. van Gend on its web site: Thomas More Centre.
I have written about "gay marriage" on this site, and have pointed out some of the same things.
It's not whether "straights and gays are equal." It's whether men and women are not merely equal, but identical substitutes. Clearly they are not identical. They're a matched set!
I don't know a way to "remedy" that with legislation. Nor do I think that we should try!
Hmmm. And when does most "sex ed" occur in public schools? Curious, isn't it?
What that means is that most sexual confusion in school children clears away if left to iteslf. It doesn't need therapy or counseling. It is a passing phase
Not if our public schools can help it. Part of the sex-ed/homosexual agenda is to render this confusion permanent in as many of our children as possible. The public educaiton system must be destroyed.
H2O-change the formula and it is not water anymore. Same as marriage.
In other words, the recruiting of these youth's does not actually clear up sexual confusion, it instead freezes development at an adolescent stage that would pass were the children not abused.
Homosexual Agenda Ping.
True, of course. Kids in school, if 8% are self identifying as "gay", are only doing so because they have been exposed to pro-"gay" propaganda. All the more reason for the lie that homosexuals are "born that way" to be debunked publicly, as loudly as possible, over and over again, until everyone knows the truth.
Let me and ItsOurTimeNow know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.
Why would anyone choose to be gay? To make every facet of their life more difficult and akward? I dont know where that study is from, but many studies have concluded that the percentage of gay people is closer to 10%, with many more that are at least somewhat curious. You guys are just falling for a doctor with a pro-family, religious marriage agenda, in the same way over-the-top gay groups have an agenda
It's possible. Who knows? What I do know is that the NEA, the gay lobby, and the institutional Left have a keen interested in controlling the sexual education of our children.
This will result, predictably, in more and more sexual confusion among kids...much to the benefit of the gay community.
Gay and sick are the same thing. I actually think it's a form of mental illness.
Of course it does. There could never be a genentic component to it because the behavior would just make the gene die out. Therefore, a gene does not exist. Its purely behavioral. There is tons of other data to prove this, but this is big example that goes to the heart of it.
There are two points worth making, if only because any scientist such as this one should be well aware of them.
1) The NHSLS was not a longitudinal study. Therefore, it does not account for generational differences in homosexual identity reporting (or formation).
2) 8% and 2% is within the statistical margin of error of the relevant subgroups..
It's also worth noting that the percentages reporting identity, activity, and ongoing activity were higher for men than for women in NHSLS. It's best (more scientific) to give the respective figures for each sex rather than the combined average, IMHO.
Why would anybody choose to have an affair? To make their life more difficult and awkward?
Why would anybody choose to be a prostitute? To make their life more difficult and awkward?
Why would anybody choose to be a drug addict? To make their life more difficult and awkward?
Why would anybody choose to be .... ad infinitum.
