Wrong. Heterosexual sex is not inherently dangerous. Sodomy is, so is
sexual promiscuity of all colors. No one ever contracted an STD from a
lifetime of heterosexual monogamy. A lifetime of sodomite monogamy, on
the other hand is inherently dangerous to one's health. While it may not
involved STD's, it does involve a host of other diseases and syndromes.

You're terribly wrong here. Sodomy is inherently dangerous to one's
health even if it is practiced within a lifetime monogamous relationship.

Also due to behaviors. Lesbians are much more likely to have long term
relationships with one partner. They're also usually not involved in
tearing their lower bowels up, leaving a clear trail for any pathogen
seeking admission to follow.

I've known dozens of homosexuals, both gays and lebians, as patients,
coworkers and friends. The vast majority of those have celebrated their
lifestyle and never sought to change it. Of those that I know who have
sought to change their sinful desires, two have been happily heterosexual
for years. One of these women married and had children with her husband.
She is now involved with the Exodus ministry at her church, in the heart
of Denver's "gay district". The other describes herself as happily
heterosexual and celibate. The third is a young woman I used to "nanny"
for. I knew her quite well at one time and can tell you without the
shadow of a doubt she is a heterosexual. But she has a rather complex
history with dysfunctional family dynamics. I have little doubt now,
that like so much else with her, her expressed lesbianism is a phase in
her confused path to maturity.
Does that convince you? I doubt it. Nor should it. As I have said
before, we cannot judge truth on the basis of personal experience.
It is that simple. But it's certainly not easy. The crucified life
(Luke 9:23) was never promised to be.
