The other day I was directed to an article posted by the Christian Research Institute (CRI). In 2009 they posted an article entitled “Is Homosexuality a Healthy Lifestyle?“. The article is disturbing but, it highlights some major problems with homosexuality.
Before I continue, I want to make it clear that I am not talking about this subject because I enjoy it. I discuss this topic simply because this subject has become the biggest social issue of our day. Just the other week President Obama gave, what many would call, a politically driven announcement supporting same-sex marriage. Many people have begun to speak up about their positions and, that creates a need for the Christian worldview to be heard. Now to the article.
The CRI article touched on two issues within the homosexual community. Those issues were promiscuity and sexual practices. This article will deal with the rampant promiscuity in the homosexual community.
Most of us would agree that promiscuity is unhealthy. It inflicts physical, emotional, and spiritual harm. Even if you do not agree with the spiritual aspect, you most likely agree with the first two. Well, if promiscuity is unhealthy then the common homosexual lifestyle we see today is extremely unhealthy. Check out some of the stats quoted in the CRI article:
Homosexualities, an official publication of The Institute for Sex Research founded by Alfred Kinsey, Alan Bell, and Martin Weinberg, reported that only ten percent of male homosexuals could be termed as ‘relatively monogamous’ or ‘relatively less promiscuous.’
Only 10% of homosexuals reported that they were sort of monogamous. That stat alone would be staggering, but wait, it gets much worse.
Additional findings showed that 60 percent of male homosexuals had more than 250 lifetime sexual partners, and 28 percent of male homosexuals had more than 1,000 lifetime sexual partners
60% of homosexual men had more than 250 sexual partners. Anyone with a working mind should be able to understand just how unhealthy this promiscuous lifestyle is. As if that wasn’t bad enough, 28% of homosexual men had over 1,000 sexual partners. Those are certainly not numbers that you will find on any news station discussing homosexuality.
Out.com is a website that writes about homosexuality. In an article entitled, “Monogamy Redefined”, Out interviewed two gay porn stars in a relationship. Read the words that Chris Porter said about his relationship with his partner:
We didn’t want monogamy. We knew that wouldn’t work. We’re both horny all of the time. We have rules. We don’t hook up with someone if we’re in the same city without the other one being involved. But if he’s out of town, I’ll hook up with someone. I’ll call and be like, ‘Is that OK?’ We’re honest and communicate.
There you go. They talk and communicate about the other people they sleep with so it’s OK. For the majority of homosexuals they don’t want monogamy and, the stats back this claim up. One huge problem with this promiscuity is that many people in the homosexual community don’t even know the people they are sleeping with. Let’s go back to the CRI article:
Another startling fact is that 79 percent admitted that more than half of their sexual partners were strangers.
When most of the people you are sleeping with are strangers, your chances of contracting an STD (sexually transmitted disease) dramatically goes up. In fact, the CRI article touches on this:
Just a few years after the publication of this report, Dr. William Foege, the director of the Centers for Disease Control, stated: ‘The average AIDS victim has had 60 different sexual partners in the past twelve months.’
When people engage in promiscuity their chances of contracting AIDS is extremely high shown by the stat above. It is obvious that promiscuity is not healthy and, the rampant promiscuity within the homosexual community is a dirty secret that needs to be known.

If you are a right-wing conservative you probably cringed while reading the title of this post. Of course, there are many things that we can learn from those around us and Pres. Obama is no different. A recent incident involving an open microphone and Pres. Obama caught the nation’s attention and it became a learning moment for myself. Here is the famous clip that many are chatting about:
Okay, many of us are probably worried about what Mr. Obama meant by “flexibility”. Some assert that he is planning to interact with the Russian government about missile defense. Others have said that this was nothing significant because the President was only speaking the truth. We all know that the second term of a presidents stay in the White House almost eliminates all accountability. While I do fear what Mr. Obama meant by his words there is one major life lesson that we can learn from this.
Choose your words wisely because you never know who’s listening.
The Bible gives us many passages discussing language. Here is a non-exhaustive list:
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; -James 1:19, ESV
When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent. -Proverbs 10:19
Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding. -Proverbs 17:27
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits. -Proverbs 18:21
Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble. -Proverbs 21:23
Our words have profound meaning. They can drag people down or they can build others up. Our words can destroy lives or they can give life. We need to remember not only to use our words wisely when they are on display but use them wisely even when you think no one else is listening.
So, choose your words carefully because you never know if others can hear you…or if there is a hot mic close by.
Thanks for reading.
