From the CDC -- News just keeps getting worse

http://action.afa.net/Blogs/BlogPost.aspx?id=2147492738

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is not a part of the vast, right-wing conspiracy, religious or otherwise. It is tasked with disease control and prevention, and reports the stubborn facts about an array of health problems.

A data analysis released today by the CDC finds that homosexuals have an HIV infection rate that is more than 44 times higher than that of sexually normal men.

Forty-four times the rate of infection - for a deadly virus that kills its hosts.

Further, the rate of syphilis infection among men who have sex with men (MSM) is an astonishing 46 times higher than that among sexually normal men.

The FDA, which again is not the research arm of the American Family Association or the Family Research Council, says that the prevalence of HIV infections among MSM is 60 times higher than in the general populace.

  • It has been an amazement of long-standing that we find it perfectly sensible to quarantine people with tuberculosis - yes, a mother who contracts it is legally forced to enter quarantine facilities and leave her family. Her husband/relatives must care for her children as best they can until she is recovered and released. This would be an example of extreme "discrimination", except for the fact that common sense makes it obvious how life-threatening tuberculosis would be if not kept from spreading.

    Yet, gay activists insanely insisted that any similar precautions to track or control AIDS would be "discrimination". At the same time, they insist that HIV is NOT a gay-specific illness - so where's the discrimination against gays? However, they succeeded legally. And now we are all exhorted to have compassion for the gay community so unfairly stricken by thousands dead of AIDS. Blame those early "pro-gay" activists for the deaths.

    It is for that reason that a man who has had sex with another man even one time since 1977 is not allowed to donate blood.

    The FDA reports that the second highest risk group for HIV/AIDS is found among intravenous drug abusers. Bottom line: homosexual behavior is even more dangerous than injection drug use. Neither should be accepted, promoted, honored, endorsed, sanctioned or given special protections in law.

    The FDA also reports that since the AIDS epidemic began in 1977, an astonishing 91% of all afflicted males contracted it through having sex with man or through drug injection. "Heterosexual AIDS" is a myth.

    If there was ever a sexual behavior that deserved to be militantly opposed, in law as well as in public policy, homosexuality is it. It is lethal, it is fatal, and it is the height of callous indifference to tell these men that not only is their behavior okay, we will punish anyone who dares to criticize

    There is simply no genuine compassion in the hearts of those who would celebrate a lifestyle that consigns its practitioners to death.

    Pro-family groups are the ones who are accused of lacking compassion. But note this: we are not calling for homosexuals to be put to death. We're calling for them to get help, and simply saying that homosexual behavior should not be legalized or normalized in any way. It's the same stance we take toward IV drug abuse, and for exactly the same reasons.

    Homosexual activists, on the other hand, are handing out death sentences like candy by celebrating behavior that kills. Where is the compassion in that? Pro-family groups are promoting life while homosexualist groups are promoting death.


    I never thought of it this way. Why WOULD one celebrate something that results in someones death?

  • Just in case you don't want to click on the garbage link posted by the OP (which actually links you to another site that links you to the CDC findings)... http://www.cdc.gov/NCHHSTP/newsroom/docs/FastFacts-MSM-FINAL508COMP.pdf

    What I find most interesting is that the majority of new cases are amont 30-39 year old men, followed by 40-49 year old men. It seems like the younger gay community knows better (to use protection). I wonder if their lack of protection while participating in sex has to do with midlife crisis type things? I know that some men choose to get fast cars that they drive recklessly. Or maybe it's just that they think because they're older that the men they are sleeping with aren't infected? I'm more interested in the age group than I am their sexual preference to be honest... I wouldn't have expected it to be older men.

  • This is because of the glorification of being promiscuous. Gay or straight people are learning that it is "normal" and "healthy" to have a trillion partners. Why buy the car before you test drive? I hear that one all too often from teens.

  • Okay, #1, a blog is not a news source.

    #2, why not instead add into sex ed that homosexual sex needs to protected sex too? That would change a lot of issues.

    ****************

    If you click through a couple times it does take you to the CDC report. It's accurate information.

    #2, why not instead add into sex ed that homosexual sex needs to protected sex too? That would change a lot of issues.

    ****************

    The majority of new cases are men 30-49 years old, not kids in high school. Adding things into sex ed isn't going to help the largest at risk group.
