'That which is against nature'

'For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;'  
(Epistle to the Romans. 1:20-28.)



In its wisdom, by hurling yet more petrol on the national fire of depravity and immorality, the UK government has recently consulted on whether to educate 7 year old children about anal sexual intercourse. It is reportedly a practice very widely prevalent in the Muslim world, given the common understanding of the 'prophet's' saying in Q 2.223, however much the apologists protest. It is also been particularly common though covert in Africa, though the incidence in the West has risen dramatically recently.
A brief review of some of the medical dangers of the practice is therefore in order.

Mucosa rectal and vaginal
Fragile, single cell, 'columnar' lining of the rectum.                                              Robust, multi-layer, 'squamous' lining of the vagina.

1. It greatly increases the risk of anal cancer - the incidence of which has risen considerably recently.
'88% of all cancer samples contained human papilloma virus' - indicating that nearly 90% of anal cancer sufferers had engaged in passive anal intercourse. In non-heterosexuals the rate was 97%. Other evidence of increased anal cancer risk from receptive anal intercourse in men and in women (N Engl J Med. 1997; 337: 1350-1358, N Engl J Med. 1987; 317: 973-977, J Natl Cancer Inst. 2001; 93: 843-849).

2. It considerably increases the risk of transmitting sexually transmitted diseases.
amoebiasis; chlamydia; cryptosporidiosis; E. coli infections; giardiasis; gonorrhea; hepatitis A; hepatitis B; hepatitis C; herpes simplex; human papillomavirus; Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (HHV-8);
 lymphogranuloma venereum; pubic lice; salmonellosis; shigella; syphilis; tuberculosis
Even Durex' own website claimed in October 2000: “Anal intercourse is a high-risk activity because of the potential for infection from STDs including HIV transmission. Currently, there are no specific standards for the manufacture of condoms for anal sex. Current medical advice is therefore to avoid anal sex. However, whenever this advice is not followed, the medical profession recommends that stronger condoms should be used although studies have shown that there is still a risk of breakage and slippage”. In the interests of political 'correctness' (or rather perversity) Durex seem to have since erased these comments viewed on 26/4/01 on this now defunct link.

3. It increases the risk of transmitting blood borne viruses - the risk for passing on HIV is 'much higher'.

“Anal intercourse, penile or otherwise, traumatizes the soft tissues of the rectal lining. These tissues... are nowhere near as sturdy as vaginal tissue. As a consequence, the lining of the rectum is almost always traumatized to some degree by any act of anal intercourse. Even in the absence of major trauma, minor or microscopic tears in the rectal lining allow for immediate contamination and the entry of germs into the bloodstream.” Dr Jeffrey Satinover.
Although under political pressure from gay rights activists, the BTS on medical grounds alone had till September 2011 refused all homosexual donors (a negative HIV test doesn't exclude early HIV infection).

4. It (or allied sexual perversions) may cause anal fissures and sometimes damage to the anal sphincter leading to incontinence.

“The shape of the bowel is not intended for the purpose of sexual intercourse. The muscle of the anal sphincter has to be forced open. The lining of the bowel is a single cell layer. As a result there is trauma and tearing. The semen action damages the bowel lining and the consequence is easy entrance of bacteria and viruses.”
Dr M E Duncan, MD(Hons), FRCSE, FRCOG

Dr Jeffrey Satinover says: “anal intercourse, penile or otherwise, traumatizes the soft tissues of the rectal lining. These tissues... are nowhere near as sturdy as vaginal tissue. As a consequence, the lining of the rectum is almost always traumatized to some degree by any act of anal intercourse. Even in the absence of major trauma, minor or microscopic tears in the rectal lining allow for immediate contamination and the entry of germs into the bloodstream.”


5. It causes anal warts, a major contributor to cancer.

6. There is some published evidence that communities that practise anal intercourse have much shorter actuarial survival than smokers and other high risk groups, like IVDUs. These findings have been hotly contested and the authors censured fiercely. Apart from the torrent of  ad hominems, methodological criticisms have been made, but not to my knowledge in peer-reviewed journals. Nor am I aware of well conducted research that contradicts these findings. It is difficult to correct accurately for underreporting of AIDS, and HIV patient survival rates have now dramatically improved with HAART, which will affect these data. Even if the effect observed is more accentuated than general experience, because of the nature of subject selection (newspaper obituaries), it remains most striking. Wiki's critique of the study and its author is here, it does not quote countervailing evidence from more rigorous studies. The question addressed merits more detailed investigation, and for educational and health services to promote anal sex as a healthy alternative to vaginal intercourse appears counterproductive and perversely doctrinaire.

7. Claiming that homosexuality is a fixed and innate orientation is deceitful, many thousands of people have found liberty and cleansing from the worst kinds of sin through the Lord Jesus Christ.
