In defending the claims of gay promiscuity made by an Australian politician, a WorldNetDaily columnist stated that gays lead “short, miserable lives” and that their relationships last “as little as a few hours.”

Rosalie Crestani has introduced a bill which seeks to prohibit the Australian city of Casey from promoting anything related to the LGBT community. Crestani argues that support for the LGBT community is tantamount to discrimination “against the heterosexual community.”

Lord Christopher Monckton, who prefers to call the LGBT community by the acronym for the keyboard layout, QWERTY, wrote in his column that Crestani had consulted with “an expert in non-heterosexual lifestyles” and found out that “homosexuals had an average of 500-1000 partners” and some as many as 20,000.

“One wonders how they found time for anything else,” he wrote.

“The wages of promiscuity is deadly disease. … Councillor Crestani was so shocked by the official mortality figures for homosexuals that she proposes to circulate a memorandum to all councillors and staff giving them detailed statistics for promiscuity, prevalence of HIV and many other sexually transmitted diseases, and for the consequently short, miserable lives and high death rate of homosexuals.”

“And why have homosexuals – most of whose partners last as little as a few hours – been so keen to promote the lifetime promises of so-called 'gay' so-called 'marriage'?” he rhetorically asked. “The reason, of course, is that they cannot produce children, so they want to adopt them. Is this fair to the children? The answer is no.”

Monckton added that the “QWERTYs” only make up 0.5 percent of the population. According to a 2012 Gallup poll, 6.4 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 identify as LGBT.
