A comment like "smoking is healthier than gay marriage" is almost so ignorant that it's not even worth addressing.
A Christian leader in Australia, Jim Wallace, claimed that statistics show that gay people are less healthy than smokers.
"I think we're going to owe smokers a big apology when the homosexual community's own statistics for its health, which it presents when it wants more money for health, are that is has higher rates of drug-taking, of suicide, it has the life of a male reduced by up to 20 years."
He's making up his own crazy notions and stating nonsense as fact!
"We have to accept the unfortunate levels of suicide, the unfortunate levels of excessive drug use (are) because of the nature of the lifestyle. I am very sorry for that. My heart goes out to those people. But it is a fact."
So being gay automatically means you're a suicidal, drug addict?
Of course! It's all so clear to us now.
Oh wait, we mean no, none of that makes any sense at all.
This is just blatant homophobia and misinformation and it's a dangerous opinion to have, and even more dangerous to be telling other people it as if it were truth.
