Description:
Upon tying this question, I realized that this is a very sensitive issue. AIDS is a very serious pandemic world wide, so please keep some a level of civility when answering the question. Also, I've kept the choices very vague to allow for intelligent, honest debate. This poll was created without a hidden agenda, it was not my intention to spread my own ideals about this issue, but to open an honest debate among Cafe mom members. Thank you so very much for your time and please feel free to answer honestly. Thanks again.

    That makes absolutely no sense to me at all.

    Now.. keep in mind that I have nothing against homosexuality & I'm not Christian.... but it seems to me that if a God were rendering out a punishment to people commiting some sin against Him, then he would make that punishment exclusive to those specific "sinners" and not throw something out there that can be passed along to their spouses or children --- who have nothing to do with the 'sin'.

    Are there really still people out there that think such things? I'm just curious because I haven't heard that for a long time. It'll be interesting to see if anyone answers yes...

    I would hope that a man that is so loving and forgiving would never "punish" his own children with such a disease. From what I understand from christians, judgement day does not come until death so I see no reason that God should punish people now. Not to mention all the poor children that are inflicted with the disease or lose one or both parents to the disease.

    I believe in an all-loving God. The God I believe in loves Gays and Lesbians as much as me, a heterosexual.

    I don't see a reason for homosexuality to be punished. And if that were the case why is it running rampant in heterosexuals at this point?

    What the hell? Straight people, who have never had homosexual interactions, have AIDs. Babies can be born with AIDs. You can get AIDs from a hospital not following protocol.

    How is any of that "gay" punishment? If you want to use the logic that gay sex (male, specifically) has the highest rate of it, you have to blame uncircumcised penises too, that carry a higher risk than uncircumcised, especially in high risk areas.

    How ridiculous.

    Umm no. Considering you do not have to be gay to get this virus. Maybe the earth itself is striking back at us for what we've done to it. (eye roll) No if God wanted to punish them, he'd just kill em like last time. Of course then he wouldn't be worthy of worship.
