Quote# 102208

The relentless promotion of homosexuality by the liberal establishment is having its predictable effect:

'“We are seeing exploding epidemics,” warned Gottfried Hirnschall, who heads [the World Health Organization's] HIV department.

Infection rates are rising again among men who have sex with men — the group at the epicentre of AIDS pandemic when it first emerged 33 years ago, he told reporters in Geneva. …

In its new recommendations for combatting the HIV/AIDS pandemic, published Friday, the UN health agency therefore for the first time “strongly recommends men who have sex with men consider taking antiretroviral medicines as an additional method of preventing HIV infection”.

US authorities made the same recommendation in May."

This is equivalent to advising people to take Advil before smashing their fingers with a hammer. More constructive advice would be along the lines of: If you do not want to contract the horrific, lethal diseases associated with homosexual depravity, then don’t engage in it. But that message would run contrary to The Agenda.

"Taking pre-exposure prophylaxis medication, for instance as a single daily pill combining two antiretrovirals, in addition to using condoms, has been estimated to cut HIV incidence among such men by 20-25 percent, WHO said…"

Morality would cut it by about 100%.

The progressive establishment aggressively aggravates the problem by working to normalize behaviors that spread HIV, on the grounds that this allows greater access to healthcare, thereby facilitating the treatment of diseases that degenerates voluntarily bring upon themselves through homosexuality, intravenous drug use, prostitution, et cetera.

"Globally, transgender women [i.e., men pretending to be women] and injecting drug users, for instance, are around 50 times more likely than the general population to contract HIV, while sex workers have a 14-fold higher chance of getting infected, WHO said."

So you can see why we should normalize their lifestyles by decriminalizing and destigmatizing their vices, as WHO demands.

HIV and the AIDS it causes aren’t the only problems closely associated with homosexuality:

"Researcher Dale O’Leary, reporting in the prestigious Linacre Quarterly, says the problem of sexually transmitted diseases in the gay community is such that scientists are calling it not an epidemic or a pandemic but a “syndemic,” a linked set of health issues involving two or more afflictions acting in concert within a specific population. According to the medical literature, among men who have sex with men this includes syphilis, gonorrhea, and HIV but also such pathologies as partner violence, drug abuse, and psychological disorders."

You could almost get the impression that the Bible has it right about homosexuality being inherently wrong.

It’s a good thing that despite all the promotion and special treatment associated with politically celebrated homosexual status, admitted homosexual/bisexuals still make up less than 3% of the US population, according to the very government that places top priority on imposing reverence for their potentially lethal brand of perversion.

I'm old enough to remember when the Voting Rights Act was brought in and discrimination with regards to access to public facilities was banned, we heard the exact same bullshit that Blount is spewing now. "Relentless Promotion" indeed. I remember when the State's Rights crowd complained about any appearance of a black character on TV as special promotion.

Oh, and transgendered women would reject the notion they are men "pretending to be women" (or even that they're gay) and injecting drug users have nothing to do with sex or gender.

"Relentless promotion of" = granting equal rights to. See "relentless promotion" of blacks, Jews, Catholics in previous ages.

This is equivalent to advising people to take Advil before smashing their fingers with a hammer [...] Taking pre-exposure prophylaxis medication, for instance as a single daily pill combining two antiretrovirals, in addition to using condoms, has been estimated to cut HIV incidence among such men by 20-25 percent

So taking Advil will prevent harm to fingers in 20-25% of cases if you smash them with a hammer? I'm not convinced you've thought this through.

Morality would cut it by about 100%.

Married heterosexuals never become HIV+. Oh no. And HIV isn't widespread in Africa.

And yet, and yet... the overwhelming majority of LGBT people are not infected with HIV and never will be. This is particularly true of lesbians. It's like saying you hate black people because they get sickle cell anemia.

"Morality would cut it by about 100%. "

Repeated experimets in the 90s showed that needle exchange programs cut AIDS rates by 40%.
Fundies repeatedly blopcked these programs from being implemented.

So, no, morality would not cut it by 00%, it increased it by 40%.

"It’s a good thing that despite all the promotion and special treatment associated with politically celebrated homosexual status, admitted homosexual/bisexuals still make up less than 3%".


Which pretty much debunks your bullshit about promotion, recruitment, and one having a choice in one's sexual orientation.

This is equivalent to advising people to take Advil before smashing their fingers with a hammer.

Analogy: You're doing it wrong. Sex is pleasurable. Smashing your fingers with a hammer, not so much.

Knowing Dave Blount, he probably does.

Oh, DIAF. You disgrace humanity simply by existing. Don't pretend you're even slightly concerned about gay people and their morality, you fucking rejoice every time a gay person gets sick and probably fap to the thought. You are an evil, sick little bastard and the world would be better off without you.

Good thing heterosexuality doesn't spread diseases. Except for all the ones it does, I mean. But those don't count because, um... God. God bible god bible god god god. Right?

This is equivalent to advising people to take Advil before smashing their fingers with a hammer.

I personally would say it is equivalent to having the fucking flu shot... but then, I'm looking at something that has some similarity rather than an asinine and retarded analogy.

7/21/2014 7:08:01 AM



Sorry, but numbers don't match.

Goomy pls

The highest rates of AIDS are in homophobic areas of Southern Africa (even in South Africa, there is still "corrective rape").

Whaddaya say ta that?

@Mister Spak

Your conclusion is a tad off. If the rates were cut by 40%, that brings them to 60% of their former value. And 100% is actually five-thirds of 60%.

So it actually does not raise the rates by 40% but more like 67%.

The virus doesn't give a rat's butt about your sexual orientation. It's more easily contracted by having sex with men than by having sex with women for simple and obvious biological reasons. That's why infection occurs in gay men, straight women, straight men and gay women, in that order.

Promoting giving homosexuals equal rights, minding your own business and leaving people alone isn't promoting homosexuality. Nobody "promotes" homosexuality any more than the NAACP promotes turning white people black.

So the Bible is right about homosexuality.

But its wrong about shellfish, pork, mixed fibres in clothes, haircuts.

You forgot to mention that Hirnschall also says that heterosexual sex also shows rising levels of HIV infection. Strange that the Bible doesn't mention this.

Stranger still that the Bible mentions homosexuality, considering that the word wasn't invented until the 19th century.

Strange too that it approves of human sacrifice, but it's not approved by Christian countries.

Yeah yeah, gay people are gay, oh the horror. You're fear mongering really isn't working anymore, especially considering you somehow manage to more wrong and awkward about AIDS than Captain Planet did.

" admitted homosexual/bisexuals still make up less than 3% of the US population,"

And probably always will. So why do you worry so much about such a small fraction of the population?

These people don't actually care about spread of disease or the lives of homosexuals. They just want to punish gay men because they hate the idea of two men having anal sex.

He has a point. The incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among people engaging in male on male sexual activity is utterly horrendous.

This is a fact that is dangerous and foolish to ignore. However exactly why this is the case is not nearly as clear.

Let's not forget that back in the day the incidence of STDs among Blacks used to be almost as horrendous and is still pretty bad.

This suggests that despised minority status has more to do with it that the type of sexual activity.

Rapunzel got it right in showing us that long hair makes a good ladder replacement. Icarus got it right in showing that wax makes a poor construction glue in sunny climes. You could almost get the impression that Hansel and Gretel has it right about cooking people being an inherently good idea.

African countries are known for their homophobia. AIDS is rampant there. It is proving Dave Blount wrong and he's not noticing it

Making people dangerously ignorant of the real causes of HIV, a virus, in an ill-concieved attempt to erase 3% of the population is going to cause problems for a considerably wider demographic than the one you're singling out for special mistreatment.

So you can see why we should normalize their lifestyles by decriminalizing and destigmatizing their vices, as WHO demands.

So that they are better integrated to the health system, which could help to prevent some self-destructive behaviours (barebacking, neddle-sharing).

I've never had the impression that the Bible gets much of anything right.

"You could almost get the impression that the Bible has it right about homosexuality being inherently wrong"

No verse in the bible, however, says that homosexuality is inherently--i.e., in and of itself--wrong.

the Levitical holiness code condemns "lying with a man as with a woman" within a specific and narrow context: engaged in by a member of the nation of Isreal while participating in a non-jewish act of worship, in the form of temple prostitution.

That's made clear by the word the Hebrew authors chose to use when condemning it and which is translated as "an abomination" in the KJV: the Old Hebrew word to'ebah, which means "ritually impermissible" It's the same word used to condemn other religious offenses, especially idolatry.

If the authors had intended to convey the meaning that homosexuality was of itself wrong in all regardless of context they'd have used theword 'zimah', meaning "morally perverse".

I am getting annoyed with the relentless Liberal pushing of the homosexual agenda. I mean here I am trying to watch the bloody cricket and I have to do that instead.
