    I'm curious to see how Fundamentalists and fanatic Christians respectively react to that. Why would God take 2.5 years of their lives if they just do what they believe he wants them to do: Hate gays.

    So let's hope Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto is soon on his way out, in more ways than one.

    The correlation between homophobia and lifespan probably don't have much to do with each other. My guess is that a person who is too stubborn to accept gays is also too stubborn to accept the most current professional advice on things that really do affect life span, like eating habits, exercise habits, smoking and drinking, vaccinations and check-ups, and other health measures.

    Interesting. I saw this one the other day:

    Gay People In Homophobic Regions Die Younger Than Those In Accepting Communities: Study

    .The Columbia University study, which was published online in the Social Science & Medicine journal, found that lesbian, gay and bisexual people in communities with high levels of anti-gay prejudice lived an average of 12 years less than their counterparts in more accepting environments.

    wow, that is shocking! I used to go to West Virginia gay bars. WV is VERY homophobic. It seemed like the best and the brightest gays moved to big liberal cities, while the ones who were left behind seemed to be the most prone to a boozing, smoking, unhealthy food lifestyle. And many had a lot of discrimination to contend with.

    Actually, I think Nivek nailed it. It's not so much that they hate gays, it is the *mindset* required to do so that is the problem.

    God loves them so much for being good that he just can't wait to see them.

    It's perfectly understandable. The emotions pay a huge role in your blood pressure and hate and fear creates pressure so it's long term damaging to your body. I'd say it's natural for that to happen when you stress your body so much.

    Hatred and the feeling of bitterness can eat away at you like cancer, urg the secret to a long healthy life is to be zen, living in the moment and forget/forgive the past. This is the secret that why most Japanese people live the longest in the world, well that and they eat a lot of raw fish (healthy diet).

    I agree... you have perfectly described the conservatives I have to work with... all of whom are overweight and have tons of health problems, but they think of themselves as "rebels" because they eat junk food every day.
    I guess it makes sense in Red-State land. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Good! I masturbate when hard-core homophobes die. Regardless of their religion or culture. And it's a consequence of being a self-loathing closet-case. Being bi, I promise that no 100% straight guy cares in the slightest about homosexuality because those things have zero effect on a straight guy. All homophobes are closet cases. You've all heard the old saying about outspoken homophobes: "The squeaky wheel WANTS to get greased."

    these studies are not legit...there made by people who work on a PhD and most of them are just crap to put on the news....it depends on the person and how there immune system works....the less u get sick in ur life the more u live....its said that if people had the perfect ambient and didnt get intoxicated by the toxic things that are in the air, by bacteria, and viruses they would live around 200 years.Also it is said that viral infections are one of the possible causes of cancer...well its legit when u think about people who suffer from AIDS because the have also these kind of problems....so no thats not true...people die because of illnesses....
    P.S. SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH, NOT MY MAIN LANGUAGE!icon_lol.gif
