EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis): This is one more excellent video by Fr. Emmanuel Lemelson, whose charisma shines… It explains the fallacies of the “novelist” theology of the Fordhamites and it stresses that we are dealing with an ideology.  It culminates with a well-known study of homosexuality where it is shown that homosexual “love” is highly promiscuous and not at all “devoted” to the “partner”… Those statistics are horrendous and defy all the “pride” beautiful photo-ops… As you will see below:

28% of homosexual men had more than 1000 partners:  “Bell and Weinberg reported evidence of widespread sexual compulsion among homosexual men. 83% of the homosexual men surveyed estimated they had had sex with 50 or more partners in their lifetime, 43% estimated they had sex with 500 or more partners; 28% with 1,000 or more partners. Bell and Weinberg p 308.”

The Bell and Weinberg study is cited (summary stats) here: 


The Bell and Weinberg study is well-known (below is a link to the actual publication):




  1. Promiscuity
    1. 28% of homosexual men had more than 1000 partners:  “Bell and Weinberg reported evidence of widespread sexual compulsion among homosexual men. 83% of the homosexual men surveyed estimated they had had sex with 50 or more partners in their lifetime, 43% estimated they had sex with 500 or more partners; 28% with 1,000 or more partners. Bell and Weinberg p 308.” (exodusglobalalliance.org/ishomosexualityhealthyp60.php)
    2. 79% of homosexual men say over half of sex partners are strangers: “The survey showed 79% of the respondents saying that over half of their sexual partners were strangers. Seventy percent said that over half of their sexual partners were people with whom they had sex only once. Bell and Weinberg pp.308-309.”  (exodusglobalalliance.org/ishomosexualityhealthyp60.php)
    3. Modal range for homosexual sex partners 101-500: “In their study of the sexual profiles of 2,583 older homosexuals published in Journal of Sex Research, Paul Van de Ven et al. found that “the modal range for number of sexual partners ever [of homosexuals] was 101–500.” In addition, 10.2 percent to 15.7 percent had between 501 and 1000 partners. A further 10.2 percent to 15.7 percent reported having had more than 1000 lifetime sexual partners. Paul Van de Ven et al., “A Comparative Demographic and Sexual Profile of Older Homosexually Active Men,” Journal of Sex Research 34 (1997): 354.”  (exodusglobalalliance.org/ishomosexualityhealthyp60.php)
    4. 1978 study, 78% of gay men ad more than 100 partners, 28% more than 1000: “A far-ranging study of homosexual men published in 1978 revealed that 75 percent of self-identified, white, gay men admitted to having sex with more than 100 different males in their lifetime: 15 percent claimed 100-249 sex partners; 17 percent claimed 250-499; 15 percent claimed 500-999, and 28 percent claimed more than 1,000-lifetime male sex partners. By 1984, after the AIDS epidemic had taken hold, homosexual men were reportedly curtailing promiscuity, but not by much. Instead of more than 6 partners per month in 1982, the average non-monogamous respondent in San Francisco reported having about 4 partners per month in 1984.” (catholiceducation.org/articles/homosexuality/ho0075.html)
    5. There is an extremely low rate of sexual fidelity among homosexual men as compared to married heterosexuals.  Among married females, 85% reported sexual fidelity. Among married men, 75.5% reported sexual fidelity. Among homosexual males in their current relationship, 4.5% reported sexual fidelity.

  1. This man is speaking about morality? From Wikipedia: “In 2018 Lemelson was sued by the SEC for irregularities over his 2014 Ligand short sale, and in November 2021 a federal jury returned a mixed verdict finding Lemelson liable for making false statements, but not liable for the more serious charge of fraud.[49][50] In December 2021, the SEC sought $2.3 million in penalties[51] along with a lifetime injunction barring Lemelson from the securities industry.[52] At the end of March 2022, U.S. District Judge Patti B. Saris fined Lemelson $160,000, and enjoined him and his firm from further securities violations for the next five years.[53] Lemelson petitioned the Supreme Court of the United States for review.[54] The petition was declined in December 2023.[55]”

    • Papman, you have rarely submitted a good faith comment here and of course, being the establishment scoundrel that you are, you never said one word about the millions stolen by your friends (and deep state paid agents) Karloutsos and Bartholonew – the latter probably the most catastrophic Patriarch Orthodoxy had in the last few centuries). I should have permanently disallowed you. But I am using this opportunity to enlighten our readers mostly of your character and then about father Emnanuel.

      All those who truly want to find out more about this landmark case that Fr.Emnanuel has been fighting for several years, there is a high-level summary of the matter here: https://lemelsoncapital.com/about/ (scroll down to the Ligand section). You can see highlights of the case and videos and all the rest…

      • Nick
        I had never heard of this priest previously. He is a professional investor and a priest?!!
        As far as I know, you can’t do both. You can’t serve God and mammon, even if that Investment is call “biblical”. You only leave yourself open to accusations of impropriaty, even meritless ones..
        I agree with him on Chrysavgis. I have written against Chrysavgis’ role as an apologist for Elpidoforos’s baptism of the two babies of the gay couple.
        But I would say he is very wrong to work for financial institutions and also serve the church. Is the archdiocese aware of his double role? Does he have a parish?

        • But you can be a priest like Karloutsos, right? You can have no moral bone in you but you can pretend to be a priest!! I posted a link which we need to study. Fr Emnanuel went through a very difficult battle for a few years and fought powers bigger than most of us understand.

          • Are we going to make people who are smart enough to make a lot of money automatically sinners? Are we going to demand priests to be monks? Guys some of the comments here are very disappointing. We have to focus on those who promote our basic principles as Christians and as Orthodox. We cannot make wealth by itself a sin. We cannot make someone’s ability to create wealth a sin – especially in a country like America. We are all sinners no matter what business we are in. And we all have the ability to use our God-given talents to create good in this world. Take a look at Elon Musk for example… And we cannot demand priests to live like paupers just to “share the pain”… The fact is that some among us have tremendous talents and usually these people are endowed by God with many charismas. Usually people with those charismas are money makers one way or the other. Are we going to preclude someone with those charismas to become a priest? I expect you in the Helleniscope audience to be a little more sophisticated and be able to focus on the total personality of someone. And on the ideas they choose to promote with their priesthood. If we keep going down this road we will have no priests left or no wealthy Christians left.. Finally, I know most of our priests around Long Island, a very wealthy area. I can assure you that the most spiritually accomplished priest, the best priest by any measure, is someone who also happens to enjoy material goods in life, a nice car, a fishing boat, a nice house etc. Let’s be real my friends. Let’s measure someone’s achievements with the right measures. Being simplistic intellectually is not an accomplishment. It’s a problem…

        • If I accept your logic then I should condemn the most successful priest of the 20 or so around my area… this is not right. The focus on all of us should be to have a balanced life where money does never become o self-serving goal, an end in itself. Why is it so difficult for some of you to understand such a principle?

  2. The Monomakhos blog wrote awhile back, Deacon John Chryssavgis is the “man at the circus they call to sweep after the elephants”…
    No theologian here – just a high paid “damage control” Pimp

  3. Thanks be to God for Fr. Emmanuel, it’s good to see at least one single priest from GOARCH actually speaking up.

    One has to wonder how long it will be before some actions are brought against him as a gag order…

  4. I am stunned that you so quickly and conviniently dismissed the information provided by Papman. You tend to dismiss information that does not fit your personal narrative. That being said, Fr Emmanuel provides valuable information that reflects the tradition of the church. However, his indiscretions are concerning.

    • Papman’s comments do never criticize Karloutsos and Bartholomew – and that’s why I don’t post them. This one will serve a good purpose and start a good discussion. Please don’t tell me that one profession is better than the other and one business better than the other. I know many In construction who are truly scum. Actually I know someone who is a “theologian” and owns real estate and a bank! You are either a moral person or you are not… Actually much of today’s investments in stocks and other products need high level knowledge of finance and statistics.

  5. Jesus never attended a gay wedding;
    Jesus did not destroy the religion of his forebears like Moses;
    Jesus never told adulteress to keep on sinning; He told her Go and sin no more;

    Nowhere in holy Scripture or Philokalia
    or testimony of a thousand saints, is found any praise or acceptance of homosexuality — instead it’s condemned repeatedly as abomination
    Saint Paisios healed a homosexual who went on pilgrimage to see him -he was changed forever.

  6. Christ came to transform people
    not indulge them or their deviancy.
    He hung out with hookers, drunks & outcasts > but by the time he was finished with them,
    they weren’t hookers, drunks or outcasts anymore!
