Worthy–So Worthy

On a flight last spring I spoke with a recently retired executive from the Focus on the Family organization. We talked gay stuff, as I tend to do, and he quoted a well worn statistic that Focus’ founder, Dr. Dobson is fond of spouting.

“Isn’t it true that the average gay man has sex with over 1,000 sexual partners in his life time?”

I responded, that even if that statistic were true, have you ever thought to ask the critical question WHY? Why would anyone in their right mind subject themselves to so many sexual partners, risk of diseases, violence and more? Unless of course they swallowed the lies about us that many conservative leaders spew–the lies that a gay man is unworthy, unclean, an abomination, sinful, evil, wrong. Yeah, if someone believed that about himself, he would treat his body and life without dignity and worth.

Blogger Jonathan Bullock posted a lovely piece about this very thing. Check out I Am Worthy!

    I realised this evening that that number has gone up. About 10 years ago, the usual number given was 500.
