Some Republicans in Michigan are calling for the resignation of Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema after Agema posted an article to his Facebook page that references the "filthy" lifestyle of homosexuals.

But Agema isn't backing down.

Agema on Wednesday posted the text of an article titled "Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuals,” that is attributed to Frank Joseph, M.D.

The article states that students need to be informed about the negative effects of homosexuality in order to "preserve their health and avoid cutting off about 15-20 years of their life span."
