Questions About Homosexuality
By H. A. (Buster) Dobbs
Homosexuality is raw and nasty. Homosexuals are degenerates.
The utter corruption of this foul and evil behavior is stated
in Paul's letter to saints at Rome. "For this cause God gave
them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change
the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise
also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in
their lust one toward another; men with men working that which
is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their
error which was meet" (Rom. 1:26-27). Paul uses the word
"vile" to describe homosexuality. The apostle says same
gender sex is a shame, reproach, disgrace. Homosexual conduct
is rotten to the core. It has no redeeming feature. The unspeakably
corrupt nature of homosexuality is splashed daily across television
As many as 90% of homosexuals, according to a study
by Brad Hayton, enjoy inflicting physical pain and receiving physical
pain. This indicates a severe mental disorder. Homosexuals make
up about 1.4% of the total population in America but commit over
half of all child molestations. They are 12 times more likely
to molest children than are heterosexuals. Homosexuals killed
68% of the victims of mass murders in the United States during
the past 17 years. Homosexual sex is often violent sex. A third
of the gays and lesbians admit that hurting or being hurt is a
part of sexual "fun." Homosexuals are startlingly indiscriminate
and careless. One sodomite in The Gay Report admitted having an
incredible number of sexual adventures. He wrote: I believe my
estimate of 4,000 sex partners to be very accurate. I have been
actively gay since I was 13 (thirty-one years ago). An average
of two or three new partners per week is not excessive, especially
when one considers that I will have ten to twelve partners during
one night at the baths.
Mr. Morin, gay activist and chairman of the American
Psychological Association's ethics committee, reported that the
824 homosexuals he studied lowered their sex rate from 70 different
partners per year in 1982 to 50 in 1984 (S. A. Stewart, USA Today,
November 21, 1984). His purpose is to excuse homosexuality because,
on average, they reduced their annual different sexual partners
from 70 to 50.
Due to promiscuous homosexual practices male homosexuals
are 14 times more apt to have syphilis than are heterosexuals,
3 times more apt to have gonorrhea, 3 times more apt to have genital
warts, 9 times more apt to have scabies, 8 times more apt to have
hepatitis, 3 times more apt to have lice, and over 5,000 times
more apt to have AIDS.
According to a recent study of 5,246 obituaries in
16 homosexual newspapers, the average age of men dying from AIDS
is 39. The average of homosexuals dying from all other causes
is 41 (Paul Cameron, William I. Payfair, and Stephen Wellum, The
Homosexual Lifestyle, Family Research Institute, Inc., Washington,
D.C., 1992). Homosexuals are detestably filthy, repulsive, loathsome,
and odious. They are morally bankrupt. Their behavior is sickening.
They are wholly lacking in ethics. They are deranged and dopey.
In 1993 the governor of California rejected an amendment to the
state constitution calling for homosexual "rights."
This provoked a riot in San Francisco. People were hurt. Goods
were stolen. Homosexuals were on a rampage. The governor relented.
He signed the order giving police protection to degenerates. The
great state of California then endorsed homosexual conduct. Perverts
had their "rights." Almost immediately there was a public
display of grossly immoral behavior on the streets of San Francisco.
A "gay-pride" parade featured vulgar displays that are
shameful to describe. It is difficult to think that humans are
capable of depraved behavior that was publicly flouted with police
protection, but it happened in California. If homosexual "rights"
are legislated on a national basis, there will be no place safe
from such flagrant crudeness in America.
Homosexual conduct is so unspeakably corrupt it cannot
be described in polite company. The behavior of those who attempt
sexual union with the same sex is rancid and vicious. The most
pernicious of the sexually transmitted diseases are connected
with homosexual behavior. There is no aberration more destructive
and corrupt than homosexual conduct. Homosexuals are, by definition,
History shows that homosexual conduct is despicable. An early
reference to this misbehavior is the account of the destruction
of Sodom. Lot, the nephew of Abraham, lived in Sodom and had received
into his home angel guests. The men of the city demanded that
the visitors be brought out "that we may know them."
Lot urged his fellow townsmen to "do not so wickedly."
The men of Sodom hatefully turned on Lot, saying, "This one
fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge"
(Gen. 19:1-11). The perverts of Sodom complained that Lot was
judging them. He decided their proposal was wicked. That was his
assessment of their impure and wanton demand. Moses recorded
the incident to justify God's fierce action in utterly destroying
the city and its occupants, men, women and children.
We have a threefold judgment. The judgment of Lot. The judgment
of Moses. The judgment of God. The indecent proposal of the depraved
men of Sodom and the act of God in burning up the city and its
people stands in the annals of mankind as a rebuke of homosexuality.
A more severe statement could not have been made. The thunderous
voice of the Almighty pronounced the surpassing sinfulness of
homosexual conduct. The name of the city still lives in the English
language as descriptive of one of the most contemptible sins of
which man is capable. Lot condemned the men of Sodom and, in a
sniveling display of unaccountable ignorance, they judged him
for judging them. The standard response by deviants to any condemnation
of their psychopathic perversion is to protest judging. The sacred
record declares that God judges and condemns homosexuality. The
sodomite complaint against judging is an indictment and condemnation
of God. At Sodom the Creator "with a great voice out of the
temple" and with "lightnings, and voices, and thunders,
and a great earthquake" judged Sodomy as an intolerable blight
The Holy Spirit told Paul to describe homosexuality as unseemly,
or shameful. The only other time this word is used in the New
Testament describes men "walking naked" and others seeing
their "shame." Paul, in the book of Romans, and Moses,
in the book of Genesis, uncompromisingly judged and condemned
homosexuals. We stand in good stead when we identify homosexuality
as unacceptably corrupt. In every society from Sodom, to Egypt,
to Greece, to Rome where homosexual conduct has prevailed the
community has been destroyed.
Paul says they received "in themselves that recompense of
their error which was due." Sin is the punishment for sin.
Excess begets excess. When people lay aside moral restraint and
begin to practice abnormal things, they are destined to become
worse and worse. Abominable unnatural lusts, by operation of cause
and effect, are progressively crooked and will inevitably become
insupportable. Paul speaks not just of the heat that introduces
unchastity but that which is ignited in the act.
Philip Doddridge commented, "And likewise their males, leaving
the natural use of the female, have been inflamed with the most
scandalous and abominable desires towards each other, males with
males perpetrating that which is most shameful to mention, and
detestable to think of, and receiving in themselves the just recompense
of their error, in that stupidity and degeneracy of mind to which
they were evidently left" (The Family Expositor: or, a paraphrase
and version of the New Testament with critical notes, by Philip
Doddridge, Volume 4, page 20).
It is an observable fact that sin demands repetition and increasing
intensity. A teaspoon of narcotic today demands a tablespoon next
week. There is no limit. The dosage must be increased until the
human system can no longer tolerate it and the body dies. That
is the story of sin. Paul put is this way: "The wages of
sin is death" (Rom. 6:23). An inflamed man, burning in his
desire for other men, will increase his corruption until he kills
himself. It is a corroborating statistic that the average age
for mortality for homosexuals is 41 (for homosexuals with AIDS,
it is 39). The difference is two years. Homosexual conduct is
Sin enslaves its practitioners. "Know ye not, that to whom
ye present yourselves as servants unto obedience, his servants
ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience
unto righteousness?" (Rom. 6:16). The word translated servants
is rendered in the footnote as bondservants, or slaves. Sin is
a cruel tyrant, as any homosexual will testify.
Modern psychology would have us believe that homosexuals are born
in that condition and cannot help themselves. They come into the
world, we are told, with a predisposition to effeminate inclinations
and are helpless in the clutches of this evil. _his produces some
serious problems. If it is acceptable for homosexuals to engage
in their abnormal behavior because they are born with the malady,
then it would follow that any other perversion can be justified
on the grounds of genetic origin. The rapist cannot help himself
because his genes dictate his behavior. The murderer cannot be
condemned because he was born with a genetic structure that required
him to kill and cripple. The sadist cannot be censured because
his ancestry imposes upon him the need to hurt others. The mass-murderer
is innocent because his genes kicked in and the blameless suffered.
There is no wrong. Everything is right. _he current kick in psycho-analysis
is to exonerate everybody. Nothing is wrong! Everything is okay!
When you do something bad, blame it on your great-great grandpa,
or maybe his grandpa. It's in your genes and you are without guilt.
The onus is not on-us.
Adam blamed Eve. Eve blamed the serpent. But neither Adam nor
Eve could blame their genetic structure. They had no choice, in
the final analysis, but to own their guilt. The homosexual quibble
that they can't help it -- they were born that way -- seems to
admit that there is something wrong about being "that way."
If homosexuality is morally smooth, then why all the fuss and
bother about trying to avoid responsibility? If there is nothing
wrong with sexual perversion, stop trying to justify it. Just
say its like being black or having curly hair and stop trying
to rationalize it.
Paul says it is against nature. Some, he says, "leave the
natural use of the woman" and burn "in their lust one
toward another, men with men, working unseemliness." If these
men leave the natural to do something else, then the something
else is unnatural. Some women, Paul says, "change the natural
use into that which is against nature." If it is against
nature, then it is not natural. It is abnormal.
Either the Bible is true in its declarations about the deviant
character of homosexuality, or it is incorrect, and therefore
errant, and not of God. If it is true, then homosexuals need to
come to grips with their perversion and correct it. Still, it
is the strong opinion of some apologists for homosexuals that
the condition comes from mutations and those who suffer from it
are victims. There is no proof for the claim. Suppose it could
be proven. Would that modify the sinful nature of the act? If
it is wrong, it is wrong, and mutated genes do not make it right.
We observe in society some aberrations. Those unfortunate souls
that suffer from an irregularity are taught to cope with and contain
it. A weak brain cell does not give freedom to lurch about over
society and hurt other people. There must be restraints. The abnormal
must not be allowed to damage the normal. For the good of mankind
we must have rules. If the rules are violated, corrective action
must be taken. If homosexual conduct is caused by distorted genes,
then society has the duty to protect itself. Dangerous malfunctions
need to be corralled. It is doubtful if sodomites would be willing
to accept the consequence of their deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)
argument. They may not really want to be classified as a monstrosity,
though they are peculiar and strange -- even queer.
A significant number of people are claiming to be cured of homosexual
behavior. Many special clinics work exclusively at the job of
reforming homosexuals and proclaim a high incidence of recovery.
These experts work on the mind and endeavor to convince the sodomite
that his conduct is unacceptable and hazardous to him and to society.
If a person can be talked out of homosexual conduct, then the
perversion is something that is learned and can be unlearned.
You cannot reason a person out of being black or Hispanic and
there are no clinics for that purpose. You can teach a person
the evil of homosexuality and motivate reform. This is a strong
indication that the my-genes-made-me-do-it theory is false.
Still, a few misguided souls are saying that homosexuals
can no more control their outrageous conduct than a leopard can
change his spots or an Ethiopian his skin. God condemns homosexual
conduct (Rom. 1:26-27). It would be evil for God to condemn someone
for doing what he or she cannot avoid. God is not evil. Therefore,
sodomy and lesbianism can be controlled.
It is, of course, possible for a person to develop
a habit so deeply ingrained it is unlikely to be broken. Yet,
the person was not born that way. He developed his condition and
has only himself to blame. A person can become so addicted to
illegal narcotics that the probability of getting free from the
foul obsession is remote. The treachery of wrong habits is a good
reason never to start on a course that is damaging or sinful.
The New Testament says of some who "were once enlightened"
and then "fell away, it is impossible to renew them again
unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of
God afresh and put him to an open shame" (Heb 6:4,6). A sodomite
may be so devoted to his/her vice so as to be past the point of
no return, but the blame belongs to the culprit.
Homosexuals can change, if they really want to change.
Paul says some were previously "effeminate" and "abusers
of themselves with men," but he says, "ye were washed,
but ye were sanctified, but ye were justified in the name of the
Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God" (1 Cor. 6:9,11).
They changed. They were no longer effeminate and abusers of themselves
with men. They understood that "they who practice such things
shall not inherit the kingdom of God" and made a conscious
decision to change. They repented! They brought forth fruit worthy
of repentance. They stopped doing wrong things and committed themselves
to right behavior. Homosexuals can change. Sodomites and lesbians
are missionary. They work hard at attempting to recruit the unsuspecting
into their immoral swamp. They can have no children of their own
and want your children. They know that if they start early enough,
they can pervert the morals of the young. In every gay pride parade
and in every homosexual convention and meeting an organized group
of homosexuals calling themselves The North American Man/Boy Love
Association (NAMBLA) is represented. Homosexuals generally find
no fault with this ungodly group. NAMBLA vigorously advocates
changing the law to allow adults to have sex with children. NAMBLA
is a member of the International Lesbian and Gay Association,
which has called on its members "to treat all sexual minorities
with respect," including the pedophile.
In an attempt to be tolerant, other organizations
embrace homosexual groups and, to show just how open-minded they
are, they allow the sodomites and lesbians to attempt to convert
children to an acceptance of homosexuality. The San Francisco
Bay Area Network of Gay and Lesbian Educators distributed, through
the National Education Association, recommendations for addressing
the concerns of male and female homosexuals. Some of the recommendations
were: Encouragement of teacher utilization of gay and lesbian
people, or parents of gays and lesbians as speakers in classes
as part of their material on the diversity of sexual orientation;
be supportive of the presence of openly lesbian, gay, and bisexuals
at all levels; do not make any assumptions regarding the sexual
orientation of students, clients, parents, or colleagues; use
non-gender specific language whenever possible (e.g. partner,
lover, person); inclusion of information, discussion, and recognition
of gay and lesbian issues (heterosexism, homophobia, homosexuality)
into curriculum, lesson plans/syllabus, and course work in various
disciplines at various grade levels; include readings which address
lesbian and gay issues on required and recommended reading lists;
with your students, discover and plan ways to participate in local
and national gay pride month/week activities in a way to celebrate,
learn about, and better understand lesbian, gay and bisexual culture;
familiarize yourself with local gay and lesbian resources (social/political
organizations, health care agencies, counseling services, clubs,
youth groups, readings, and file materials) and use them in your
class; requirement of comprehensive human relations/sex education
instruction within the health curriculum framework, which include
information of the diversity of sexual orientation.
On July 5-8, 1992, the National Education Association
held its annual convention and adopted dozens of radical resolutions,
including visiting "homosexuals teaching in the classroom,
even if they have AIDS, and counseling of students by homosexuals."
There is no doubt that homosexuals through their various organizations,
aided and abetted by the National Education Association and the
public press, are undermining the morals of the youth of the nation.
Your children are at risk. When a wide-eyed homosexual spreads
his hands and pleads that he just wants to be left alone to live
like other people, don't believe it. He has a hidden agenda. A
breathtaking majority of sodomites and lesbians are dedicated
to perverting as many people as possible. Their target is the
When Josiah instituted his reform in Jerusalem, under
the probable influence of Jeremiah, he not only banned idolatry
and its abominations, but he also "brake down the house of
the sodomites, that were in the house of the Lord, where the women
wove hangings for the grove" (2 Kings 23:7). Prostitution
was one of the contemptible practices of heathenism. It was often
incorporated into worship of idols. The Jews succumbed to this
repulsive practice and allowed male and female prostitutes in
the house of the Lord. Sodomites and harlots worked side by side
in the temple of God. Priests and people were not offended, but
participated in this wickedness. Josiah put an end to the activity.
He tore down their houses and removed the curtains that concealed
the moral decay.
May America learn the lesson. Sodomites need to be
driven out. The disgusting thing ought not to be tolerated. The
land of liberty is on the verge of being dishonored and destroyed
by decadence. This corruption will either be destroyed or it will
destroy. We do not recommend violent vigilante action. The way
to expel and spew out of our land any moral evil is to teach against
and condemn it. If the horrible consequence of sodomy and lesbianism
is spread before the public, surely the people will revolt. Our
task is to teach against it and pronounce the judgments of God
upon it. When we calmly show the essential evil of this evil,
we are not behaving irrationally, but responsibly.
The charge of homophobia does not stick. To expose
the rotten fruit of the homosexual tree is not an irrational fear
of homosexuality. We are not "homophobes." May God grant
that Christian soldiers will never be intimidated by insults and
false charges, but will rather press on in pursuit of truth and
righteous and in opposition to the wiles and corruption of Satan.
Besides, opposing the prosecutor of crime comforts the criminal.
If we allow our mouths to be stopped by curt and unfair epithets,
we surrender to the Red Dragon. Every person who has suffered
the outcome of homosexual perversion ought to be dynamic in opposing
this satanic work. Every tearful eye that has looked upon the
ravaged remains of a poor deluded, shriveled body that has expired
in pain-racked misery and is without hope because of homosexuality,
ought to hate this evil. Opposing the prosecutor of the crime
Josiah-like, may we have the good sense and moral
courage to rise in righteous indignation and deny the transgressor
the right of trespass. Sodomites and lesbians must be seriously
opposed. If we fail in this, we may bring the fire and brimstone
of divine disapproval down upon our fair land.
