Short Proof That LGBT Practices Hurt Us

LGBT practices are unnatural and harmful. That's provable by both God's design (biology) and scientific data (observed results). The status quo in America was once that God designed men and women to have sex within committed marriages for pleasure, to draw them closer together, and to have children. Then, raise those children to have godly character supported by biological advantages God gave each parent. The process would multiply God's goodness over the Earth if people obeyed His Word and loved others as themselves. (They didn't.)

Later, evolution was proposed. That theory said life's highest purpose was reproducing in a way that passed on the parent('s) genes. For humans' upbringing, the theory also supported parenting that encouraged children to be in similar relationships to likewise bear children with the family's genes.

Homosexuality is an uncommon to rare condition where people try to have sex with those of the same gender. These relationships cannot reproduce to have children. They cannot pass on their genes. They also lack the biological advantages of normal parenting. Both God's Word and evolution theory say homosexuality is unnatural and against life's design goals. On average, they're also very promiscuous with fewer, lasting relationships.

If you want empirical data, that can get muddy at this point with all the games played with studies. I still found two ways to keep it simple. Let's put the two claims side by side then look at just two, data points that can test them.

1. God's design, aka status quo for marriage, is one man, one woman, pick them based on godly character, commit for life, and have sex only within that marriage (no pre- or extra-marital sex). The claim is the marriage is more often physically healthy, emotionally fulfilling, and stable over the long-term. They will bear their own children (their genes). Then, that helps raise children who do the same.

2. LGBT crowd says they're the same as straight people. Just a different orientation. So, they will have all the same benefits above in relationships between the same sex.

What does the data say? We've already covered bearing children with their genes. Homosexual relationships don't do that. For other points, we have countless studies plus a CDC warning. They together show the LGBT community is very different from the straight community in these ways:

1. They have many, many more partners on average. Your LGBT relationships will fail way more often. If you date them, they're more likely to break up with you. They struggle to keep lasting relationships.

2. The STD rate is much higher for LGBT people. The men have died in large numbers. Many more carry HIV. The LGBT crowd is likely to lie about having a disease. Bisexual people can move these STD's into straight population. Most have a virus suspected to cause cancer. This lifestyle isn't healthy: it's a public, health risk. That the Center for Disease Control has to issue warnings about homosexual practices reinforces that claim.

"Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error." (Romans 1, ESV)

Quick Recap and Conclusion

So, they claim to be normal like straight people, but with different orientation. God's Word said it was unnatural, shameless, sexually-oriented, and would have a penalty that Biblical relationships didn't have. Surveys of LGBT people show they are not normal, put sexual promiscuity over lasting relationships, have many breakups, spread STD's more often, and die more often. It fits God's Word very well. For those rejecting the Word, the data by itself condemns LGBT practices as a threat to both those individuals and our society. We should be resisting this movement, not celebrating it.

Question: Shouldn't we warn people practicing LGBT that will break their hearts or destroy their bodies more often than God's design? And protect our society from practices that hurt more people with no benefit to society? And mess up families who our society will support on welfare? And protect them from God's wrath on their sin? And tell them that repenting and turning to Christ will lead to forgiveness, joy, and eternal life? Shouldn't we do what's best for people suffering from this mental illness instead of promote its damaging results?
