Claims of Gay Lobby Unsubstantial

The media is consumed with homosexuality - in the U.K., where I am this week, and at home in the States. In the church and in the law, the debate rages.

Now a new study by the Amsterdam Municipal Health Service has confirmed research that shows the average homosexual relationship lasts only one-and-one-half years.

Contrast this with heterosexuals: sixty seven percent of first marriages in the U.S. last an average of ten years. And more than seventy five percent of those say they have been faithful in their vows.

The gay lobby is trying to sell the idea that homosexual relationships are just as, if not more, stable than heterosexual ones and as such, they should be allowed to "marry." Few challenge their assertions because they don't want to be called a "homophobe" or other names.

The gay lobby claims other studies indicate homosexual couples have been together for at least five years. But a morally weakened society will not be able to withstand this onslaught because it has nothing on which to stand.  Do you have the sense that all of our foundational pillars are under attack?
