August 9, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – A study out of Sweden published last month has found that suicide risk among active homosexuals is high even in a region that is highly tolerant of same-sex behaviour.

Published in the European Journal of Epidemiology, the authors found that men in same-sex "marriages" were at three times greater risk of suicide than men who are married to women.

The authors note in their abstract:

Even in a country with a comparatively tolerant climate regarding homosexuality such as Sweden, same-sex married individuals evidence a higher risk for suicide than other married individuals.

The pro-family organization Agenda Europe comments:

The study’s results are similar to numerous other studies in recent years that have found a strong relationship between homosexual behavior and a variety of negative psychological outcomes, including in countries that are very accepting of homosexual behavior. The behavior of homosexuals, which often involves high levels of promiscuity and instability in their interpersonal relationships, results in rates of 10-20% HIV infection of homosexuals living in urban areas, as well as elevated incidence of herpes and the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus, syphilis, anal cancer, and other diseases.

The inevitable conclusion is: the claim often made by sodomites that everybody else is to blame for all their sufferings, is not true. Sodomy is a self-destructive lifestyle that leads to frustration and despair even when there is no-one around to be accused for “homophobia”.

Another gay myth debunked.
