Jay Wye and abe822 have regurgitated practically every untrue myth about gay people and their "unhealthy" lifestyles, as if in their twisted logic that means gays shouldn' marry.
Take the one about "shortened life spans." It's a complete fabrication by a discredited "researcher" named Paul Cameron, who did research for the anti-gay Family Research Institute after he was expelled from the American Psychological Association for using dubious research methods. He has been censured by four other professional organizations and a federal court.
In 1997, former Education Secretary William Bennett told ABC News that homosexuality “takes 30 years off your life.” In 1998 he retracted his statement, saying he got bum information from Cameron.
