Hated For Speaking the Truth
One thing you can absolutely count on in today’s PC world: if you dare to stand up and proclaim truth in the public arena, you will get blasted from the secular left and their stooges in the mainstream media. It is becoming more and more difficult each passing day to speak truth without an avalanche of hate and fury coming down on top of you as a result.
I know all about this: wanna see all the hate mail I get? I am saving it all up, so the evidence is certainly out there. Just dare to challenge the reigning orthodoxy of the various militant activist groups, and all hell will break out. The last thing the other side wants is truth – so they resort to name-calling and mud-slinging instead of actually dealing with the evidence.
We had another classic case of this occurring just recently here in Australia. The story goes like this: The Australian Christian Lobby had invited the Prime Minister to be the keynote speaker at their next national conference. Julia Gillard accepted, but now she has pulled out in a big huff.
So what happened? Was the ACL head Jim Wallace found guilty of some horrific crime like murder or child abuse? Oh no, it was something far, far worse than that. He actually stated truth about the homosexual lifestyle, and for that every militant, every media outlet, and even the PM, has come down on him like a ton of bricks.
Here is how one news outlet reports this story: “Julia Gillard has cancelled a planned address to the Australian Christian Lobby after ‘heartless’ comments by ACL director Jim Wallace, suggesting smoking was healthier than homosexuality.
“The Prime Minister said in light of the comments, she had decided it would be inappropriate for her to speak to at the ACL’s national conference next month. ‘There are a range of deeply-held views in the community on the issue of same-sex marriage but it is the responsibility of all parties in this debate to be respectful and responsible in any public comments they make,’ she said in a statement.
“‘I believe yesterday’s comments by Jim Wallace were offensive. To compare the health effects of smoking cigarettes with the many struggles gay and lesbian Australians endure in contemporary society is heartless and wrong. Although everyone is entitled to their own view, these statements reiterated again today on behalf of ACL are totally unacceptable. In light of this, I believe my attendance at the conference would be inappropriate.’
“Mr Wallace made the startling claim in a debate on marriage equality with Greens leader Christine Milne at the University of Tasmania. In answer to a question from the floor, Mr Wallace said smokers were owed ‘a big apology’ as the lifespan of a gay male was reduced by up to 20 years, half that of a smoker. ‘The life of smokers is reduced by something like seven to 10 years and yet we tell all our kids at school they shouldn’t smoke,’ he said. ‘We need to be aware that the homosexual lifestyle carries these problems’.”
Needless to say, we have a few problems here. First of all, I always thought it was a real bad move to invite her as the keynote speaker in the first place. Why have an atheist, socialist, Emily’s Lister as the major speaker at a Christian conference?
She already has all the free airtime she needs to push her agenda, without allowing her a platform in which she will simply attempt to dupe more gullible Christians. But be that as it may, this decision to pull out in a stink tells us all we need to know about Julia.
She keeps saying she is opposed to homosexual marriage, but that is clearly so much baloney. The truth is, she has done nothing to stop it. For example, at the Federal Labor conference last December she sat by in silence, allowing her party to make homosexual marriage official Labor Party policy.
Just like Kevin Rudd pretended to be on side (and also got kid-glove treatment by the ACL), but then stabbed pro-family activist Warwick Marsh in the back for daring to say children deserve a mother and a father, so too Julia has simply shown her true colours here.
As to the remarks in question, they happen to be perfectly true. If I – or a team of medical experts – were to warn cigarette smokers of the dangers of their lifestyle, and how they are cutting years from their lives, would Julia blast us and accuse of making “heartless” comments?
Since when does speaking truth, and warning folks of danger ahead, render one heartless? As I said, the health risks of the homosexual lifestyle are well known and they are very dangerous indeed. Concerning the life expectancy issue, as I documented in my book, Strained Relations, this is exactly the case:
“A number of studies have demonstrated this. For example, a study in the International Journal of Epidemiology found that homosexual men, because of HIV/AIDS and other diseases, can expect to live up to 21 years less than other men. The authors state, ‘In a major Canadian centre, life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality were to continue, we estimate that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 years will not reach their 65th birthday. Under even the most liberal assumptions, gay and bisexual men in this urban centre are now experiencing a life expectancy similar to that experienced by all men in Canada in the year 1871’.”
I have entire chapters documenting the extremely risky and dangerous lifestyle that homosexuality is. My book has over 700 footnotes documenting this and related truths – truths which the militants, the MSM, and Julia simply do not wish to face.
Let me quote a bit more from my book: “A lot of medical evidence, as recorded in such journals as The Lancet, The Journal of the American Medical Association, and The British Medical Journal, has shown how unhealthy homosexual practices can be. According to Dr Klamecki, a proctologist of 30 years experience, the sexual practices of the average homosexual typically affect ‘the oral cavities, lungs, penis, prostate, bladder, anus, perianal areas outside of the rectum, rectum, colon, vagina, uterus, pelvic area, brain, skin, blood, immune system, and the other body systems.’
“A number of practices – some which are offensive enough so that they cannot be described in detail here – entail serious health risks. Such behaviours are not unknown among heterosexuals, but are far less frequently practiced. For example, a 1992 study found that ‘fisting’ or ‘handballing’ is practiced by some 42 per cent of the male homosexual community, but only by 2 per cent of the male heterosexual community. Twenty nine per cent of male homosexuals report being involved in ‘golden showers’ while only 4 per cent of male heterosexuals have practiced it. Also, 37 per cent of male homosexuals indulge in sadomasochism, contrasted to 5 per cent of heterosexual males.
“The Australian Sydney Men and Sexual Health (SMASH) report found that 70 per cent of homosexual men with regular male partners engaged in ‘rimming’, 20 per cent engaged in sado-masochism, and 20 per cent engaged in group sex. It found that in sexual behaviour with casual male partners, 47 per cent engaged in group sex.
“A more recent SMASH report found these trends continuing, and getting words. Over a four year period over 21 per cent of male homosexuals had over fifty sexual partners. Also over a four year period, 40 per cent of male homosexuals engaged in sado-masochism, and 25 per cent engaged in ‘watersports’ with regular partners. And with casual male partners, 45 per cent engaged in S&M and 20 percent engaged in ‘watersports’. Finally, over 82 per cent had engaged in group sex with casual partners over the last four years.”
And we are supposed to encourage, promote, celebrate and glorify such lifestyles? We do everything we possibly can to discourage cigarette smoking, as dangerous as that lifestyle is. Yet Julia and her militant friends want us to bend over backwards in pushing this utterly dangerous and high risk lifestyle.
What was that about ‘whom the gods would destroy, they first make crazy’? Indeed, as has also been said, “Truth is hate for those who hate the truth.”
