Besides the obvious spiritual and moral consequences, advocates of banning gay marriage address the medical consequences of gay marriage, how detrimental it is to our society
Jen Shroeder, founder of BlessedCause, an organization dedicated to restoring sanity to our public schools and exposing the Islamic indoctrination of American textbooks, pointed out in her commentary that statistics show as a fact that the relationship of average gay couple does not last long. She continued criticizing how the gay couples are not aware of the medical consequences come from the spread of AIDS and many other STDS.
According to California State Statistics, "Among Gay men in King County, syphilis rates are 100 times higher than in the general heterosexual population, and are estimated to be 1000 times higher among HIV positive Gay men than among the general heterosexual population.”
Dr. Paul Cameron of Family Research Institute said in his statement of “Medical Consequences of What Homosexuals Do” that as of Oct. 2003, there are over 50,000 Californians with full blown AIDS and there are 107,837 to 124,305 estimated in California with HIV/AIDS.
Cameron also reported how death and disease accompany promiscuous and unsanitary sexual activity: 70% to 78%x, of gays reported having had a sexually transmitted disease, the proportion with intestinal parasites (worms, flukes, amoeba) ranged from 25% to 39% to 59% and shockingly, as of 1992, 83% of U.S. AIDS in whites had occurred in gays.
Shroeder then addressed how the consequences of gay marriage would lead to a great social challenge in terms of medial benefits and bring greater burden to our society and people. She said:
“How many legitimately married couples are going to lose their medical benefits because companies can no longer afford the skyrocketing cost of medical insurance, footing the bill for all the AIDS and STD victims who cared more about the partner of the month than they did their own medical safety?
How many children will be in sincere need of medical care, but there won't be any, because medical benefits became too expensive, taking care of every STD victim suffering because of their determination to satisfy their lust no matter what the consequences?”
Shroeder concluded her commentary by saying how we do need to help AIDS victims and those suffering with STDs and we need to love and reach out to homosexuals but it is more crucial not to perpetuate the social problem and the number of victims.
She wrote, “I was thinking about objecting...but I'm afraid of being called homophobic so maybe I'll just go hide in this corner.... Not.”
