Apart from the numerous medical journals that have pointed out the dangers involved in homosexual acts, at certain times homosexual activist leaders have themselves admitted these dangers.
On Feb 17, 2009 Canada's largest gay paper XTRA reported on a group of homosexual activists who were demanding Canada's healthcare system pay more attention to the "gay community."
Gens Hellquist, one of the complainants, was the executive director of the Canadian Rainbow Health Coalition a leading homosexual activist group. He explained at length his concerns about the health status of homosexual men and women in Canada.
He observed: "We have one of the poorest health statuses in this country ... Health issues affecting queer Canadians include lower life expectancy than the average Canadian, suicide, higher rates of substance abuse, depression, inadequate access to care and HIV/AIDS."
He continued: "There are all kinds of health issues that are endemic to our community. We have higher rates of anal cancer in the gay male community, lesbians have higher rates of breast cancer ... the reality is there is (sic) more GLBT people in this country who die of suicide each year than die from AIDS, there are more who die early deaths from substance abuse than die of HIV/AIDS. ... "
And powerfully he concluded: "Now that we can get married everyone assumes that we don't have any issues any more. A lot of the deaths that occur in our community are hidden, we don't see them. Those of us who are working on the front lines see them and I'm tired of watching my community die."
Being a homosexual activist he was of course not seeking to halt the destructive lifestyle but to steer more healthcare dollars in their direction. However, it is a fact that those diseases and illnesses are related to the homosexual act.
A good friend of mine, a former practicing homosexual and now a faithful Catholic says of the Catholic position on homosexuality:
"I don't think the Catholic Church's current attitude is abusive, I think it is love. A loving parent sometimes has to tell a child not to play in a bad neighbourhood. The child may take offense and tell all his friends how mean his parents are. Perhaps the child goes to school and tells the teachers and principal that his parents are abusive … The parent sadly accepts this anger, judgment, and threatening calls from teachers, principals. But nevertheless, the parent has to stand firm because the parent loves the child and wants to protect the child from the dangers of the bad neighbourhood. Sometimes being a good parent means being hated by children who make unsafe demands."
"Like the child in the example above, some people in the gay community think the Catholic Church has been unfair with its position on gay sex and have complained loudly and publicly. The Church has been beat up badly by the press, politicians, and by the courts. Like the parent in the example above, the Catholic Church must stand firm and accept the pain and damage of this bad press in order to protect the souls of Christians who obey and listen to the Church's teaching. It is precisely because the Catholic Church loves gay people (and all people) that it advises against gay sex."
«One of the arguments more strongly was used by the homosexual political spokesmen to get the approval of gay marriage in Massachusetts was the alleged statement that the high rates of suicide representing homosexuals is because they do not feel integrated in society and that gay marriage, among other things, would help it to be. The reality is that this claim is false, and demonstrates the fact that four years after the introduction of gay marriage in Massachusetts, the suicide rate among homosexuals has dropped just two points, the same as in the collective heterosexual..»
