What other flesh is mentioned that they wanted in Sodom?

So you agree that their sin was not homosexuality, but wanting to forcibly engage in sexual relations with angels?
whom they mistook for men (bodiless powers don't have flesh).

Good point.

ms.hoorah

So I take it you disagree with what Jack Morin said in his book Anal Pleasure and Health? He argues that anal sex is not only safe, but will make you a healthier person.   Grin

This is not to say that I agree with Mr. Morin, I just wouldn't go as far as you seem to be going.
"I just wouldn't go as far......"
Search the medical literature. You will find all of these potential complications with anal sex.


Well, some of the issues I knew about or assumed. I was curious about the "anal and/or rectal cancer" though... can someone really get cancer from anal sex?  Also, what I meant by "not going as far" is that I am not completely against anal sex. It has it's dangers, especially if you aren't taking precautions, but it also has it's positives as well. Er, at least for a wicked heathen like me it does Wink

I'm not a medical professional, but have unfortunate experience with this. Doctors have asked me (which I thought silly) "Why did you get cancer? Did you engage in anal sex?" (Maddening because I've never had sex period. Much less anal sex.  Roll Eyes) So, yes, there is an established link in the medical world between this activity and this particular form of cancer.

I know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with homosexuality (unlike usury, which is really bad and harmful and sinful, in my humble opinion) and that homosexuals, just like heterosexuals, or paraphiliacs, can marry and have a great life, and theosis, in the context of THEIR monogamous, committed, lifelong marriage.

What about the physical damage that male homosexual intercourse on their bodies over the course of their lives, even within the context of this "loving" relationship?

There is none. Male gay couples know how to avoid it.

I know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with homosexuality

Absolutely nothing wrong with it, and yet its practioners have to know how to avoid the damages of practising it.  How very odd.

And some women die in child birth. How very odd.

Real and genuine love raditates the Union of the Trinity. Homosexual unions do not do that (nor divorce, adultery, fornication.....)

So true marriages are between three people?

No, unfortunately not.  But I see, like any supporter of gay "marriage" the link of marriage to children is lost on you.

That video is a juvenile attempt at bigotry (at best).  It's not even clever enough for me to be offended by it.  It's a very poor attempt at social commentary.

can someone really get cancer from anal sex?

Not really in any different of a fashion from how women get cervical cancer from various STD's. So resultant simply from anal sex aside from STD's? No.

I know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with homosexuality (unlike usury, which is really bad and harmful and sinful, in my humble opinion) and that homosexuals, just like heterosexuals, or paraphiliacs, can marry and have a great life, and theosis, in the context of THEIR monogamous, committed, lifelong marriage.

What about the physical damage that male homosexual intercourse does on their bodies over the course of their lives, even within the context of this "loving" relationship?
Such as what? I take much better care of myself since I've been in a relationship and am healtier.
Here is the information that you requested.

Potential medical complications of anal sex (STDs not included)

anal fissures
anal and/or rectal erosion
acute or chronic proctitis
rectal prolapse
anorectal abscess
exacerbated hemorrhoids
anal and/or rectal cancer
fecal impaction
loss of anal sphincter control with risk of permanent fecal incontinence
urethritis
pyelonephritis
cystitis
bacterial prostatitis
phimosis
intestinal parasitic infections



First, would you please cite your source?

Second, I know quite a lot of male-male couples who regularly have anal sex, and the only problem I've ever heard of occurring in this entire list are anal fissures, and at that it appears that they are quite rare. Like occur 1/1000 times or something like that. You make it sound about 100x more dramatic than I've actually experienced it to be.
