Are Homosexuals Sexual Deviants?


In addition to the health risks of the homosexual lifestyle, there is a high degree of sexual deviancy within the homosexual community. It is important to realize that not all homosexuals practice or approve of these acts. Nevertheless, within the homosexual community, there is an abnormally high percentage of those who do as compared against the heterosexual community. In his book Strained Relations, Bill Muehlenberg wrote that according to the 1992 book, The Gay Report—a book which is greatly praised within the homosexual community—“15 per cent of male homosexuals and 19 per cent of male bisexuals had sex with animals, compared with three per cent of male heterosexuals.” Likewise, there is a significantly greater proportion of homosexuals who practice sado-masochism, and a host of sexual practices which are too extreme and perverted to even mention. A 1992 study found that 42% of male homosexuals practice something called “fisting,” as opposed to 2% of male heterosexuals; 29% of male homosexuals practice “golden showers” as opposed to 4% of male heterosexuals; and 37% of male homosexuals engaged in sado-masochism, as opposed to 5% of heterosexuals.1

The sexual deviancies which are tolerated among the homosexual community are abundant. Perhaps the most troubling of these is the practice of pedophilia. For the most part, the homosexual community accepts groups such as the North American Man-Boy Love Association. Moreover there is a disturbingly high incidence of homosexuality in reported child molestations.2

Not surprisingly, Scripture affirms this reality. When the Apostle Paul wrote about homosexuality in Romans 1, he associated it with sexually transmitted disease and depravity. Romans 1:18, 21, 24, and 26–28 says:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. … For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. … Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, … For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

Certainly when a substantial portion of the homosexual community participates in such sexual deviances as golden showers, fisting, and practices which are too perverted to even mention, it can be said that they have received a debased mind that encourages them to do things which ought not to be done. Moreover, the AIDS epidemic—which in its sexual transmission is unique to same-sex relationships—can be considered a due penalty within their own bodies for their error. According to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, this dangerous and unhealthy lifestyle is the consequence of suppressing God’s truth and refusing to honor God and be thankful to Him for those truths. In light of the Genesis creation account, it is reasonable to conclude that one of these suppressed truths is God’s design of marriage as consisting of a male and female united together to become one flesh. So long as this truth is accepted, homosexuality is never an option. It is only when this truth is suppressed that homosexual relationships are made possible, and with it, the dangerous consequences.

Whether or not society wishes to admit it, the evidence is overwhelming that the debate regarding the acceptability of homosexuality encompasses far more than the question of whether homosexuals and heterosexuals are being treated fairly. This debate is truly a clash of two lifestyles. More importantly for us Christians, it is a clash of two spiritual worldviews.
