Homosexual men twice as likely to have cancer: study | LifeSiteNews.com

Aaah... but isn't the question: Does one cause the other? (in this case, does homosexuality cause cancer?) Just because A follows B does not mean that the former is necessarily a causal agent of the latter. Yet if the goal of this medical research is to uncover 'truth', then we must be willing to examine and explore wherever the evidence leads even if we fear that the conclusions will not support previously held convictions. At the very least this apparent correlation needs to be further studied before any substantiation can be ascribed to the conclusion that Lifesitenews seems to have drawn.


Given the plethora of sexually transmitted diseases that menaces sexually active individuals, soon there will be a study that will claim that sex is dangerous to one's health. Wait a minute...wasn't there one recently???  I wonder if the conspiracy theorists who always see the evil forces of 'Papism' behind everything will believe that this rash of stories extolling the dangers of sex is part of a Catholic plot to 'scare-up' some more vocations.
