Is homosexuality dangerous to society? The answer depends on what constitutes a danger. First of all, there is no objective moral standard that secularists have with which to identify wickedness, evil, and moral decay. At best, all that can be offered is the generic claim that what is dangerous is what causes undue harm and suffering among the general population. Such dangers could include economic collapse or upheaval, war, famine, plague, earthquakes, disease, etc. We could add that dangers to society are things that weaken it, make it less viable to care for its population, make it vulnerable to attack from outside and/or within. This could be anything from bad religion to bad government. Also, such things as rampant lying, stealing, and murder would seriously undermine a healthy society and be dangerous to it since they increase the harm and suffering of the society as a whole.
Okay, so now that we have something to work with, let’s take a look at homosexuality and see if it is beneficial or harmful to society. Let’s start with disease and see what the statistics teach us.
