Dangers of Homosexuality According To Independent Government Agencies.
The HIV and AIDS crisis is worse than ever among Gay and Bisexual men with 1 in 5 being infected with HIV or AIDS in 2010. With over 270,000 gay men having died of AIDS and over a half million gay men currently infected with HIV or AIDS the toll of the gay lifestyle is devastating.
Marriage represents a commitment to sexual exclusivity and fidelity. Gay marriage is not comparable to Heterosexual marriage because in over 50% of Gay relationships the partners agree, going into the relationship, to NOT be sexually monogamous.

Gay Monogamy and Open Relationships
When Gay couples talk about monogamy, they are not talking about sexual monogamy.
Excerpts from the actual 2010 released study funded by the Govt. (NIMH):
Primary partners are an important and unrecognized source of new infections
Almost all gay couples have sexual agreements with their primary partner, and roughly 50% of these agreements are open and allow sex with outside partners.
Excerpt from the New York Times about the latest Govt. (NIMH) funded study about sexual monogamy in gay couples:
“New research at San Francisco State University reveals just how common open relationships are among gay men and lesbians in the Bay Area. The Gay Couples Study has followed 556 male couples for three years — about 50 percent of those surveyed have sex outside their relationships, with the knowledge and approval of their partners.
That consent is key. “With straight people, it’s called affairs or cheating,” said Colleen Hoff, the study’s principal investigator, “but with gay people it does not have such negative connotations.”
…“None of this is news in the gay community, but few will speak publicly about it. Of the dozen people in open relationships contacted for this column, no one would agree to use his or her full name, citing privacy concerns. They also worried that discussing the subject could undermine the legal fight for same-sex marriage.” Click here to see the article
