Do you feel alone in this world because you have a secret that you are afraid to tell anyone? Are you afraid that you will be shunned, unwelcome in society, and marked as a weirdo? Did you come to this post hoping to find compassion and sympathy? Here in this post you will find compassion , but I cannot offer you my sympathy or even empathy. I warn you this post may cause you to feel anger, hate, and very insulted but please read on.
Many of the visitors to this blog may not believe the Bible to be the Word of God or maybe that it has been twisted by men even that it is out of date and no longer relevant. If that is your case then you will be glad to know that I am not going to begin with that. It will be in here, however.
One of the benefits of homosexuality is certain STDs that are unique to this choice of behavior as well as other medical dilemmas such which are explained in the following extract from http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/homosexuality/ho0075.html
Sexual relationships between members of the same sex expose gays, lesbians and bisexuals to extreme risks of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), physical injuries, mental disorders and even a shortened life span. There are five major distinctions between gay and heterosexual relationships, with specific medical consequences. They are:
Levels of Promiscuity
Prior to the AIDS epidemic, a 1978 study found that 75 percent of white, gay males claimed to have had more than 100 lifetime male sex partners: 15 percent claimed 100-249 sex partners; 17 percent claimed 250-499; 15 percent claimed 500- 999; and 28 percent claimed more than 1,000 lifetime male sex partners. Levels of promiscuity subsequently declined, but some observers are concerned that promiscuity is again approaching the levels of the 1970s. The medical consequence of this promiscuity is that gays have a greatly increased likelihood of contracting HIV/AIDS, syphilis and other STDs.
Similar extremes of promiscuity have not been documented among lesbians. However, an Australian study found that 93 percent of lesbians reported having had sex with men, and lesbians were 4.5 times more likely than heterosexual women to have had more than 50 lifetime male sex partners. Any degree of sexual promiscuity carries the risk of contracting STDs.
Common sexual practices among gay men lead to numerous STDs and physical injuries, some of which are virtually unknown in the heterosexual population. Lesbians are also at higher risk for STDs. In addition to diseases that may be transmitted during lesbian sex, a study at an Australian STD clinic found that lesbians were three to four times more likely than heterosexual women to have sex with men who were high-risk for HIV.
It is well established that there are high rates of psychiatric illnesses, including depression, drug abuse, and suicide attempts, among gays and lesbians. This is true even in the Netherlands, where gay, lesbian and bisexual (GLB) relationships are far more socially acceptable than in the U.S. Depression and drug abuse are strongly associated with risky sexual practices that lead to serious medical problems.
The only epidemiological study to date on the life span of gay men concluded that gay and bisexual men lose up to 20 years of life expectancy.
Monogamy, meaning long-term sexual fidelity, is rare in GLB relationships, particularly among gay men. One study reported that 66 percent of gay couples reported sex outside the relationship within the first year, and nearly 90 percent if the relationship lasted five years.
Encouraging people to engage in risky sexual behavior undermines good health and can result in a shortened life span. Yet that is exactly what employers and governmental entities are doing when they grant GLB couples benefits or status that make GLB relationships appear more socially acceptable.

I promised to place the scientific benefits first and I have kept my word. If you wish to comment on this, please read further before you do.
A second benefit of homosexualtity is lonelieness, guilt and a feeling of not belonging. As evidenced by the introspective feelings that some new homosexuals have. These feelings occur in everyone at some point in their life but GLB confessors are more prone to have them.
Many people online as well as offline have asked me to give them a specific Bible passage and so I offer up two and a historic event as evidence of the condemnation of homosexual men, lesbians, and bisexuals.
1 Timothy 1:7-11 NIV
7 They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.
8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
The law spoken about here is actually God's Word, the Bible.
In some Bibles, in order to make it easier for people to understand, it says perverts instead of "those practicing homosexuality." You need to understand, in this case, the definition of a pervert is one who veers from what is socially exceptable or what has been laid down by the authority of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NIV
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
When it says not to be decieved it is telling you not to lie to yourselves.
Also, when it says "men who have sex with men," it is not excluding lesbians. It says men because men were the dominant leaders of that time. Nowadays, women have equal leadership in most cases and so it extends to them as well.
As you probably already know, my event that I was referring to is the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Most people and a lot of Christians love to point to this story and say that it was not destroyed because of homosexual sins. This is only partially true for it was destroyed for other sins as well as homosexuality. It says in the Bible (KJV) that when the two angels came to warn Lot and his family that the cities were going to be decimated the men of the city demanded for Lot to allow them to "know" them. Many try to say that it was only a courtesy greeting and welcome to the city but if you read and reread the Greek text you will discover that the men actually wanted to have sexual intercourse with them. The passage uses the same word, know, in the way Adam and Eve and other heterosexual couples get to "know"each other.
The benefit of homosexuality here is punishment and death from God. No, God does not kill every GLB in the world because he is a patient God and gives them a chance, sometimes a lifetime of chances, to repent and come to Him for forgiveness (1John1:9).
Please, understand this is not an attack on people themselves but rather the sin that they have allowed themselves to buckle under. I understand what you are faced with. So, I ask you to take this post as if it were written from a cancer survivor because that is what homosexuality can turn into, hopelessness and defeat. I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. Jesus said "he who is without sin let him cast the first stone." He also commanded the lady in the story to "go and sin no more." You can change; it is a choice. God loves a person but He must punish their sin if they do not give it up.
If you are still reading, please post you comments below, thank you for going through all of this post. They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.
