Obviously then you don't know what you are talking about and are trying to spin the statement I made. No , the 'kids' I was talking about did not go there "to become gay" (dumb scenario), they were mainly runaways there because south of gay bay, hollywood is a good place for runaways. They got into gay sex because it was more profitable than straight sex (that right there says a lot) and then became used to, or accostomed to, or whatever your spin is on it, but got into that gay lifestlye "by their own choice". So people CAN choose to become gay. O.K. your turn to spin again.

That was a very incendiary post you made. I will assume it was due to a reading comprehension issue on your part.

Who does the general public think of right away when they hear HIV/AIDS?
My response was:
I think of Africa, which has the highest rate of HIV infection in the world. It is rampant among heterosexual adults and also children due to infection in the mothers, transmitted at birth to the child.
There was no blame or judgment of any kind on my part. I was pointing out the reality that, sadly, HIV and AIDS is rampant in Africa and that was the first thing that came to mind when Gustavo posted his question.
Do not add implications that are not there. That was completely uncalled for.
This is an open post, I can respond to any post I read, if you don't care for my response too bad.

I have a response but will not be posting it because your only goal is to twist the words and add things which were not there. And, frankly, I'm not interesting in getting into a debate in which the argument is about who said what. Have a nice day.

<quoted text>This is the truth.
The gay cult knows that between 71-77% of Americans reject same sex marriage and 95% of the world rejects it.
They do not want the people to vote on the issue. Recently, LAMBDA and the LGBT rejected a same sex marriage initiative in Arizona for the 2014 ballot. They said that it would expose how America really feels. They said that their current strategy of offering sexual favors to justices, AGs and governors is an individual route they can take. Their motto is "slowly but steady, one butt at a time, they all have to come to the public toilets eventually."
Well they are trying to change the toilet issue around too

Just about everything you say is untrue. You think your bigoted opinions are gospel. Fortunately, you have no power here, so it's irrelevant.

A 19-year Air Force veteran who was relieved of his duties because he disagreed with his openly gay commander over gay marriage is now facing a formal investigation after he told me his story.

Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk found himself at odds with his Lackland Air Force Base commander after he objected to her plans to severely punish an instructor who had expressed religious objections to homosexuality. During the conversation, his commander ordered him to share his personal views on homosexuality.

“I was relieved of my position because I don’t agree with my commander’s position on gay marriage,” he told me.“We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.”

In one of her first meetings with Monk, the commander expressed concern about the chaplain who would deliver the benediction at her promotion ceremony.

“She said she wanted a chaplain but objected to one particular chaplain that she called a bigot because he preached that homosexuality is a sin,” Monk said.

After he was relieved of his duties, the Liberty Institute filed a religious discrimination complaint on his behalf.

Last week, Monk was supposed to meet with an Air Force investigator tasked with gathering facts about the complaint. But when he arrived, Monk was immediately read his Miranda Rights and accused of providing false statements in a conversation Monk had with me.

“I immediately got the sense that this was retaliation against me for coming forward with my religious discrimination complaint,” he said.

The accusations against Monk are a court-martial offense in the Air Force – and it’s quite possible that the 19-year veteran with a spotless record could be booted out of the military because of his Christian beliefs.

And he’s not the only Christian at Lackland Air Force Base facing persecution for opposing gay marriage, according to Monk’s pastor.

Steve Branson is the pastor of Village Parkway Baptist Church, about five miles from the Air Force base. He tells me that as many as a half dozen of his church members are currently facing persecution on the base for their religious beliefs.

“Sgt. Monk is just the tip of the iceberg,” the pastor tells me.“Anyone who doesn’t hold to the right view on homosexuality is having a very difficult time.”

Pastor Branson told me Monk is an outstanding member of the congregation.

“One of the finest men I’ve ever met in my life,” he said.“He lost his job because of what he thought. He’s paying the price.”

Monk tells me Christians are trading places with homosexuals.

“Christians have to go into the closet,” he said.“We are being robbed of our dignity and respect. We can’t be who we are.”

I asked Sgt. Monk why he just couldn’t keep quiet knowing that the Obama administration has staffed the Pentagon with anti-Christian civilians. Why risk getting booted out of the military?

Sgt. Monk told me he decided to take a stand for his three teenage sons.

“Every night after dinner we read the Bible together,” he said.“I tell the boys we’ve got a lot of stuff going on in this world and we need people to stand up. My boys know what I’m going through. They are looking at me – wanting to know how I’m going to handle this.”

He said the Monk family has a “family ethos.”

“The Monk family will be strong in mind, strong in soul, they will have strong character and strong work ethic,” he said.“That is the ethos of our family. That’s what I hope they see in me.”
He hopes his boys will see “a man who stands upright and stands for integrity.”

Sadly, those values are no longer seen as virtuous in a military that’s been turned into a social-engineering petri dish.

I would need to re-post over 16,000 posts in order to fully answer that question. Frankly, I don't have time.

That comment made no sense as written. To whom was it directed? Who is "you folks"? What is meant by "infest"? Please elaborate and then perhaps others will be able to engage in discussion after you clarify what you are attempting to say. Thanks and have a nice day!
