CDC : "61% Of New HIV Found In Homosexual Men"

I have 3 important things I want to pass along today.

1. World Net Daily has published a national article about R-71, quoting Elizabeth Scott, comments we made yesterday in this blog, Larry Stickney, Steve Pidgeon and James Bopp, Jr. World Net Daily has significant national reach with its publication. Their article about R-71 is linked here.

2. The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has published a report that is alarming and informative, particularly as it relates to males as young as 13 and the HIV infection. This is a heads up for everyone, particularly parents. They have released a new multi-year study showing that practicing homosexual men account for 61% of the new HIV infections in the US, while they represent only about 2% of the population.

I was concerned when I read the study. The media rarely reports on these matters, likely because of their commitment to the homosexual agenda. Unfortunately, the media's silence gives Americans the false sense that HIV-AIDS is somehow not a problem any more.

I was particularly concerned that 27% of the new HIV cases were among men as young as 13 years old.

I also felt that parents, in particular, should know that nearly 20% of all homosexual men have HIV and half of them are not aware they have it. This information will not be included in your child's public school curriculum. I have linked the CDC report here.

3. Penny Lancaster and a group of concerned citizens have created a website for people in Eastern Washington (Spokane area). It gives a profile on the candidates currently running for office in that part of Washington State. It will be very helpful for our readers in that area. I have linked it here.

The ancient prophet Isaiah, in describing the battle of his time, said too many religious leaders had become irrelevant. He said they had become "swallowed up" by excessive drinking of wine, causing them to "err in vision and stumble in judgement"---that their tables were full of vomit and filth," yet he spoke "strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate." (Isaiah 28:5-15)

May God give us all strength in our battle, to resist being "swallowed up" by the intoxicating cultural power of tolerance, relativism, so-called equality and political correctness.

The battle at today's gate is one directed at Judeo-Christian values and principles, those truths that built an exceptional nation.

May God give us all "strength to turn back the battle at the gate."

Thank you for your support in this battle.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.

  1. This seems to be a pretty good argument for the stability and monogamy of gay marriage.

    Also, if you read the CDC report, they said that the stigma of HIV and homosexuality can hinder utilization of HIV prevention services.

    They also said it's time to "confront the homophobia" that accompanies the disease.

    And the report said that the big underlying factors for the groups affected were "poverty, discrimination and lack of access to health care. Readers can make their own judgement on the republican approach to these issues.

    Lastly, I loved Gary's comment that "This information will not be included in your child's public school curriculum". This is probably true in schools where you've successfully blocked sex ed. So, do we now agree on the need for comprehensive sex ed? Shocker!

  2. How's this for comp. sex-ed. If you play with fire you'll get burned.

    Stability and monogamy of gay 'marriage'? There is obviously little monogamy being practiced. That's what happens When people give in to the lusts of the flesh and the pride of life.

    They received in themselves the due penalty for their error. The stigma was brought on by their own behavior, no one else to blame for that....

  3. Craig,

    Your comprehensive sex ed program seems appropriate for a flat earth that's the center of the universe.

  4. Access to better health care would not prevent someone getting HIV. Neither does even perfect condom use. The reason this figure is so high is that anal sex has a risk of tearing is extremely higher than the risk of tearing during vaginal sex - whether its a woman and a man having anal sex or a man/man. STDS in such an environment are transmitted far more easily, especially if the people involved have had more than one partner. A more exact figure would be that unprotected receptive anal sex has a 1 in 200 chance of HIV transmission, unprotected receptive vaginal has 1 in 1000, dirty needle sharing a 1 in 150 chance, . Healthcare can indeed healp when the HIV is caused by mother's breastmilk, as antiretroviral therapy can reduce the risk from 25% to about 2%. Condoms greatly reduce risk, but do not eliminate it entirely, and are rarely used consistently by anyone no matter how 'great' their sex ed. (For instance, when it comes to women coming into get abortions - of those who used condoms for contraception, half cite inconsistent condom use as a reason for the pregnancy, and over 40% condom slippage/breakage). CDC.gov/hiv speaks to that even perfect use of condoms provide a high degree of protection, but not perfect protection, and that only abstinence or long term monogomy with a hiv-free partner can protect you.
    By the way, 'the flat earth' reference is a bit of a joke. http://www.bede.org.uk/flatearth.htm There are at least 6 or seven greek scholars that talk about the round earth, they knew it was round in the middle ages, and a flat earth has never been a tenent of Christian doctrine. The catholics did persecute Galileo (a fellow christian) for his proof that the earth revolved around the sun - but that again has nothing to do with Christian doctrine or the Bible, but rather the abuse of power by an organized religion ran by man.

  5. "has nothing to do with Christian doctrine or the Bible, but rather the abuse of power by an organized religion ran by man"

    Nicely done, you acknowledged the entire problem of organized religion in one sentence. And on this blog, you could further narrow it down to "by ONE man".

  6. That's because most homosexual intercourse use no protection at all. Yes nobody will get pregnant, but HIV is always lurking somewhere.
