I would like to introduce this part with a very good article recently posted as a guest commentary on one of the many news web sites I personally visit every day but the Sabbath! I have only changed the size of font and article spacing for better viewing!
Fellow countrymen we are in for a very bad time in the not too distant future. The trends are continuing, that will bring the wrath of Almighty Yahweh down upon this nation, and other countries of the world very soon! What brought the flood in Genesis? What will bring the fire down from heaven at the end of the age? Sin! Unrepentant sin! Revelation 9:20
A Pharmacist's View on Gay Marriage
By J.R. Schoenle, Pharm.D.
June 29, 2004
(AgapePress) - Having worked with AIDS patients and investigational drug studies for HIV at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I feel a lot of compassion for homosexual persons. But as a professional health care provider, I am compelled to educate people with medical facts regarding same-sex marriage.
This is not a "privacy" issue. Gay activists have brought the gay lifestyle into the public square with their demands for "marriage" or "civil union." (The public has not gone into anyone's bedroom; rather, they have brought their bedroom issues out in public.) "Gay marriage" or "civil unions" will give legal protection and government benefits to the gay lifestyle. YOU, the taxpayer, will be paying those government benefits out of YOUR pocket, so you deserve to have an opinion on the subject and you deserve to be informed about facts relating to these same-sex unions.
If marriage between man and woman has been with humanity since the beginning of time and has been the cornerstone of every culture and religion, then why is there this "new idea" of what marriage can mean? The idea of "gay marriage" or "civil union" would have been ridiculous 3,000 years ago, 1,000 years ago, 500 years ago, 50 years ago, even 10 years ago. What has changed?
The cultural "perception" of homosexuality and the gay lifestyle has changed. Two common myths have been instrumental in this change: (1) 10 percent of the population is homosexual,* and (2) people are born with their homosexual orientation.
Although the secular media, Hollywood celebrities, and groups such as PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians & Gays) still might make these claims, the medical community has rejected them. Research has shown that the incidence of a homosexual orientation is closer to 2 to 3 percent of the population. More importantly, several research projects failed to find the "gay gene."  As a matter of fact, had they discovered the gay gene, then gay marriage would become a civil right, since it would be scientifically proved that a person has this orientation as an "inborn" trait, something that cannot be changed.  The gay gene would be the most important piece of scientific evidence to convince you, the taxpayer, to pay government benefits for the gay lifestyle. Had they found the gay gene, you would have read about it in newspapers and magazines and seen it on TV; you would probably still be seeing it every single day. There would be a "test" for the gay gene, just as there are tests for other genetic traits.
So if there is no gay gene, then what causes a homosexual orientation? Most scientists agree that a combination of factors influence it.  Interestingly, many people have changed from a homosexual orientation to a heterosexual orientation with and without therapy.  No matter what our orientation, we do choose our lifestyle (which is tremendously influenced by what is permissible and encouraged in our culture.) With all of this research, why is there so much confusion?
Prior to 1973, "homosexual orientation" was listed as a diagnosable mental disorder in the DSM-III-R, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. In 1973, psychiatrists who were members of The American Psychiatric Association took a poll and voted on whether or not to remove "homosexual orientation" from this book of diagnoses. The vote was taken, and by a very slim margin, the vote sided on removing this diagnosis. There was no new information regarding the orientation (i.e., there hadn't been any research to warrant the justification of this action); they simply took a vote. This event initiated the cultural perception that homosexual orientation and behavior is a natural phenomenon and therefore should not be "treated" but should be accepted and even encouraged -- e.g., "out of the closet."
But should the gay lifestyle be encouraged? Health care professionals are familiar with the medical challenges of homosexual men living the gay lifestyle. For you, the taxpayer, to be willing to pay government benefits for gay marriage or civil unions, you should consider what lifestyle your tax dollars will be supporting.
Remember, homosexual activity began "coming out of the closet" in 1973. Just eight short years later, in 1981, we have the first reported cases of an "unknown" disease killing gay men. AIDS has arrived. Why do so many diseases target gay men? The body is not built for sodomy. "The anus opens into the rectum which is not as well suited for penile penetration as the female vagina is. Both the anus and rectum have rich blood supplies, and their walls, thinner than the walls of the vagina, are easily damaged. When penetration occurs, it's easier to tear blood vessels, which in turn increases the risk of acquiring or receiving an infection as penile skin and/or semen comes in contact with the partner's blood or semen." 
Another risk is caused by bacteria and other organisms present in feces; Entamoeba and Giardia can cause chronic diarrhea. Many will suffer from "gay bowel syndrome." Anal intercourse is "high risk behavior" because so many diseases can be spread from this misuse of the body, including HIV, Hepatitis A, B, and C, and a wide range of other sexually transmitted diseases.
What About Condoms and 'Safe Sex'?
Here is what we know about latex condoms from the latest research. [6,7,8,9,10]
For males who use a condom 100 percent correctly, studies have shown that latex condoms have a:
13 percent failure rate against HIV (once HIV converts to an AIDS disease, it is deadly). (Would you advise your teenager to drive a car that might kill him or her 13 percent of the time?)
50 percent failure rate against gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydeous.
100 percent failure rate against genital herpes and human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer in women. (These grim statistics are from studies where males used condoms 100 percent correctly. Does that happen in real life?)
For 20 years, condoms have been distributed extensively; now the study results on latex condom effectiveness and the CDC statistics on sexually transmitted diseases reflect how relatively ineffective they are. The NIH, CDC, and medical professionals still promote the use of latex condoms as "safer sex," especially for HIV prevention. Unfortunately, most people simply don't know the real risks that are involved when they rely on a condom.
Disease spread in gay/bisexual men is especially problematic because this lifestyle almost always includes multiple sexual partners. More partners means more disease. (Remember, condoms offer little or no protection against the spread of many diseases.) In addition, homosexual men living the gay lifestyle have a higher rate of depression, pornography use, alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide. [11,12] We all need to be compassionate toward those men trapped in this unhealthy lifestyle. But legitimizing homosexual marriage or civil unions will undoubtedly encourage experimentation in this lifestyle. From a medical and ethical perspective, this will have tragic consequences for individuals as well as society.
What About AIDS?
From 1981 through 1999, there were 751,965 cumulative reported cases of AIDS in the U.S. At least 56 percent of the AIDS diagnoses occurred in gay or bisexual men. In other words, two percent of the population had at least 56 percent of those reported AIDS diagnoses. The second largest group was IV drug users. What about heterosexual sex? In the U.S., persons who have been infected with HIV through heterosexual contact have usually had vaginal or anal intercourse with someone in one of the high-risk categories -- a bisexual male or someone who is an IV drug user. 
In the past 17 years, medications to combat HIV have been developed, which has decreased the numbers of persons with HIV progressing to an AIDS disease. A person diagnosed with HIV will be put on a complicated drug regimen (three or four drugs). The patient will be on these drugs, which have very unpleasant side effects, for life. However, one catastrophic problem combating HIV is that a person who is HIV-positive and receiving medication is still able to infect other people. The number of people in the U.S. that are HIV-positive has continued to grow. There are approximately 42,000 Americans infected with HIV each year (74 percent men, 26 percent women). The CDC estimates that 25 percent of persons who are HIV-positive are unaware they are infected, and 50 percent of all new diagnoses occur in persons younger than 25 years. Persons who have other sexually transmitted diseases (with sores) have a two-to-three times greater risk for becoming infected with HIV. It is now estimated that there are between 900,000 and 1,000,000 persons in the U.S. who are HIV-positive (included in that estimate are 400,000 to 450,000 gay/bisexual men). The medical community anticipates that there will soon be a large increase in AIDS; in the first three months of this year, there have already been 8,910 new cases diagnosed.
In addition to the physical, psychological, and emotional devastation of HIV/AIDS is the high cost of treatment. The wholesale cost for the combination drug therapies treating HIV is about $14,000 annually per patient. (Medication costs can be much higher depending on the drugs included in the regimen.) A study completed in 2002 estimated that costs treating patients who had progressed to an AIDS disease were around $34,000 annually per patient.  Variations in this approximation include medications, hospitalization, diagnostic costs and clinic costs. The health care costs of AIDS diseases and drugs for treating HIV have impacted your health insurance premiums tremendously. The direct costs of HIV/AIDS are similar to other very serious illnesses; however, the indirect costs are higher since HIV affects predominantly working-age persons. 
In recent youars, the media has influenced public opinion about the gay lifestyle with emotion, but not with facts. When was the last time you read about the negative consequences of the gay lifestyle, including current epidemiological information about HIV or AIDS in the U.S.? Homosexual women do have different issues from homosexual men. This letter limits the discussion to men because the obvious public health threat from the lifestyle of gay men provides legitimate reasons for taxpayers to form an educated opinion against gay marriage and civil unions.
Some states allow gay couples to adopt children even though there are many studies which confirm that children do not "thrive" as well in households parented by a single gender. Government programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters were developed because we know that children need gender identification. Today some people claim that the children of gay couples do just as well as the children being raised by a father/mother. Sociologists Stacey and Biblarz reviewed the research studies currently available on same-sex couples raising children. Their review article in the American Sociological Review 2001 found that children of lesbian couples were "more likely to engage in homosexual behavior and less likely to conform to traditional gender norms." An additional significant finding was that daughters of lesbian couples were "more sexually adventurous and less chaste." The review also determined that lesbian "co-parenting relationships" have a higher incidence of breaking up than heterosexual ones. (We know that family structure has profound effects on children. For years people proclaimed that children weren't hurt by divorce, and now a multitude of studies, books, and testimonials prove that hypothesis was false.)
What can we learn from countries where gay marriage is legal? On May 3, 2004, a study was released from Sweden, which compared married gay couples to married heterosexual couples. Results showed that gay male couples were 50 percent more likely to divorce and lesbian couples were 167 percent more likely to divorce than heterosexual couples
On May 27, 2004, Australian Prime Minister John Howard announced plans for Australia to ban gay marriage and to prohibit gay couples from adopting children from foreign countries. Based on the scientific data available from the past 30 years, this logical and practical decision is confirmed by human nature, natural law and common sense.
This is not a "privacy" issue. Without prompt action, YOU, the American taxpayer, will be paying for government benefits for gay marriage or civil unions out of YOUR pocket. Exercise your voice on this issue facing our country right now. Gay activists have used emotion and intimidation to distract us from the facts, and they are depending on taxpayer ignorance or apathy toward this situation to accomplish their goal. We will all live with the consequences of what happens with this issue.
Speak now ... or forever hold your peace! Support the Federal Marriage Amendment. Contact your state senators who will be debating and voting on this issue during the week of July 12. You can sign a petition and send an e-mail to your senators via the website NoGayMarriage.com.

Before I go into the Sacred Word of Almighty Yahweh for his way of thinking on this subject, I want to include another article. *The previous writer included the research data concerning the disproportionate numbers being used to describe the homosexual population.
Survey: Only 1% homosexual, not 10%
Activists outraged by government stats showing 'low' figure

Activists in Canada are disputing statistics from the government in Ottawa released yesterday that show just 1 percent of the nation's population identify themselves as homosexual.
The figures from the Canadian Community Health Survey also indicate 0.7 percent of Canadians said they were bisexual, the Canadian Press news service reported.
Advocates for homosexual rights cast doubt on the government's numbers.
"What's clear is that there is under-reporting,'' Laurie Arron, director of advocacy for the "gay"-rights group Egale told the news service, claiming the number of homosexuals is somewhere between 5 and 10 percent.
"I think you can definitely count on under-reporting, there's no question of that,'' said Michael Botnick, a professor of anthropology and sociology at the University of British Columbia.
The survey found 1.3 percent of men considered themselves homosexual compared to 0.7 percent of women. Some 0.9 percent of women said they were bisexual, compared to 0.6 of men.
Homosexual activists claim there is reluctance among respondents to honestly report their sexual orientation on a government survey.
Botnick argued homosexuality is hard to define statistically.
"Sexuality is a very slippery and elusive issue that has little to do with gay, homosexual or queer, however anyone wants to describe it,'' he said.
"Somebody who has never had a same-sex experience, ever in their lives, but has fantasies, does that make them gay, or not? Maybe they are, but they don't qualify.''
According to the Canadian Press report, Quebec reported the highest number of homosexuals or bisexuals at 2.3 percent of the population. British Columbia followed at 1.9 percent, New Brunswick with 1.6 percent and Ontario at 1.5 percent.
*The belief that 10 percent of the population is homosexual is based on discredited research done by Indiana University zoologist Dr. Alfred Kinsey in the mid-20th century. More recent research puts the number between 1 and 3 percent.
Let's review a little from the
previous parts on this subject! Just what are Almighty Yahweh's directives on
You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. And you shall not lie with any beast to defile yourself with it; neither shall any woman stand before a beast, to lie down to it: it is confusion. Leviticus 18:22-23
And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13
And as were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall be the coming of the Son of man. Then shall two men be in the field; one is taken, and one is left: two women shall be grinding at the mill; one is taken, and one is left. Watch therefore: for you know not on what day your Master comes, But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through. Therefore be you also ready; for in an hour that you think not the Son of man comes. Matthew 24:37-44
Are these days upon us now? What are the signs of these days described in the Olivet prophecy by Yahshua the Savior of mankind? The tradition of the Elders says that a contributing factor to the destruction of all flesh in Noah's time (except what was safely contained within the ark) was homosexuality. Let's look at the time of Noah for some clues to what happened in his era.
And Yahweh saw
that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of
the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented Yahweh that
he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. Genesis 6:5-6
I do believe, we also have arrived at the time described by Yahshua and our days are the same as Noah's!
What about Genesis 18? What does this deal with specifically? What happens in Genesis 19 that should serve as a warning for the human race today? Let us read from these passages and extract some important information!
And Yahweh appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; and he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood over against him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself to the earth, and said, My master, if now I have found favor in thy sight, pass not away, I pray you, from your servant: let now a little water be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree: and I will fetch a morsel of bread, and strengthen you your heart; after that you shall pass on: forasmuch as you are come to your servant. And they said, So do, as you have said. And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes. And Abraham ran to the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it to the servant; and he hasted to dress it. And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will certainly return to you when the season comes around; and, lo, Sarah your wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard in the tent door, which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old, and well stricken in age; it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my master being old also? And Yahweh said to Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, who am old? Is anything too hard for Yahweh? At the set time I will return to you, when the season comes round, and Sarah shall have a son. Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, No; but you did laugh. Genesis 18:1-15
Here we see Yahweh sent His Angel to Abraham and Sarah, He informed them of the promised seed. He had told Abraham that his seed would be as the sand of the sea. He is fulfilling his promise to Abraham by telling them they will have a son at a specified time. But, what follows is what we want to concentrate on at this time!
And the men rose up from there, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way. And Yahweh said, Shall I hide from Abraham that which I do; seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, to the end that he may command his children and his household after him, that they may keep the way of Yahweh, to do righteousness and justice; to the end that Yahweh may bring upon Abraham that which he has spoken of him. And Yahweh said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come to me; and if not, I will know. Genesis 18:16-21
What is this grievous sin that Yahweh is telling Abraham about? Abraham then begins to make intercession for the people of Sodom. Why? Because when Abraham and his nephew separated one from another in Genesis 13, Lot chose this particular are to dwell in! Now Abraham is trying to save the righteous from Sodom! Finally, Yahweh tells Abraham that he will not destroy Sodom if he finds ten righteous people there!
In Genesis 19 the two angels come to the gate of Sodom. There they are met by Lot. He strongly urged them to come inside his house. The reason for this urgency soon becomes apparent. Soon the house is surrounded by wicked people demanding Lot to send them out to them so they could know them. This is very polite language! Actually what these evil people wanted to do was sodomize these angels! Can you imagine? The angels blinded these evil people so they couldn't even find the door of Lot's house! Let's read what happened next!
And the men said to Lot, Have you here any besides? son-in-law, and your sons, and your daughters, and whoever you have in the city, bring them out of the place: for we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxed great before Yahweh: and Yahweh has sent us to destroy it. And Lot went out, and spoke to his sons-in-law, who married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for Yahweh will destroy the city. But he seemed to his sons-in-law as one that mocked. And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take your wife, and your two daughters that are here, unless you be consumed in the iniquity of the city. But he lingered; and the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters, Yahweh being merciful to him; and they brought him forth, and set him without the city. And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for your life; look not behind you, neither stay you in all the Plain; escape to the mountain, lest you be consumed. And Lot said to them, Oh, not so, sirs: behold now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have magnified your loving kindness, which you have showed to me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest evil overtake me, and I die: behold now, this city is near to flee to, and it is a little one. Oh let me escape there (is it not a little one?), and my soul shall live. And he said to him, See, I have accepted you concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow the city of which you have spoken. Hurry, escape there; for I cannot do anything until you come there. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. Genesis 19:12-22
What we can clearly see in the above passages concerns the destruction of Sodom. Yahweh came to inform Abraham of the promise and to destroy Sodom for the evil that they found. Notice the fact of two angels entering into Sodom. Two bear witness against that evil place. These angels remove Lot by force, taking along with him his wife and two daughters. The next event to transpire is fire falling from heaven.
The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot came unto Zoar. Then Yahweh rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from Yahweh out of heaven; and he overthrew those cities, and all the Plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. And Abraham rose up early in the morning to the place where he had stood before Yahweh: and he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the Plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the land went up as the smoke of a furnace.
And it came to pass, when Elohim destroyed the cities of the Plain, that Elohim remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the middle of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in which Lot dwelt.
Well! Sodom is destroyed! The term sodomy is derived from this city Sodom! The whole city had become corrupt. Remember that the herdsman of Abraham and Lot were many and this forced a division between them because of the strife! It surely is a shame to only see four people taken from Sodom. One of these looks back (longs for) towards Sodom. This now leaves only Lot and his two daughters. Sad! Really sad!
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them, having in like manner with these given themselves over to fornication and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire. Judah 1:7
Homosexuality caused this area to be destroyed by fire! Well! Where do we see this again? Observe!
This is now, beloved, the second epistle that I write to you; and in both of them I stir up your sincere mind by putting you in remembrance; that you should remember the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and the commandments of the Master and Savior through your apostles: knowing this first, that in the last days mockers shall come with mockery, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for, from the day that the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth compacted out of water and amidst water, by the word of Yahweh; by which means the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: but the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of lawless men. 2 Peter 3:1-7
The Bible is very explicit when it comes to judgment! Almighty Yahweh will judge this earth with fire to burn up the works of wickedness! Are you going to be like Lot's son-in-laws and mock? They were destroyed along with the wicked!
And spared not the ancient world, but preserved Noah with seven others, a preacher of righteousness, when he brought a flood upon the world of the lawless; and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, having made them an example to those that should live wickedly; and delivered righteous Lot, sore distressed by the lascivious life of the wicked (for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their lawless deeds): Yahweh knows how to deliver the righteous out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment; 2 Peter 2:5-9
And as were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man.
This will end this series! You will find in the book of Judges chapters 19-21 the sin of Benjamin, Israel's smallest tribe! They were almost destroyed to the man for this abominable sin! Only 600 remained in Benjamin after the other tribes warred against them for this evil!
I was going to end this series here with part four! But! I have just received some additional startling information I feel must be published! Stay Tuned!
Part five is now here! Must read article!
Yours in Messiah, Hawke
