All the major Universities were originally started as Christian.
But they didn't stay that way. That's the more important part.

Modern Christian universities were created solely as a way of keeping the races separated. Another example of fundies working around civil law in order to promote agendas based on "purities" of their own creation.

I guess you are referring to the Jonah in the bible. Um, just so you don't sound stupid in the next forum you visit, there was no whale in that story. There was a fish.

Whales aren't fishes.

And allegories aren't literal. And some people think whales are fish. And Jonah is angry! And some people don't know penguins don't fly. And Jonah is a dope!

The Hidden Danger of Same-Sex Marriage (continued):

Indeed HIV and AIDS are significantly more common among homosexual men not because these virulent diseases are homophobic/prejudicial, but because the architecture of the human rectum was not designed for penile penetration rather for bowel evacuation. In addition, unlike the female genital canal, the anus did not evolve with built-in cellular properties to protect the male body from this deadly virus.

The LGBT movement is very aware of the disproportionate HIV/AIDS epidemic among the gay community, yet it continues to leverage its enormous political and financial power to uphold the Disneyesque fantasy that sexually active gay couples are just as healthy and functional as their heterosexual counterparts.

How will the legalization of same-sex marriage affect your family?

If same-sex marriage is made legal in your state – public schools will be legally required to teach your sons, grandsons, nephews etc. that homosexuality is a socially acceptable and equal alternative to heterosexuality. To avoid costly discrimination or defamation lawsuits from gay parents or federal and state authorities, school educators will deliberately avoid teaching the true health risks of male-to-male sodomy. Without knowledge of the full risks of MSM sodomy, the young male members of your family may feel recreational anal sex is safe enough to try, and by trying it just once, they could tragically join the fifty percent of young American gay men who are projected to contract HIV by the age of 50.

If you believe in freedom, then free your mind from the media elite’s false propaganda and politically-correct mythology, and purify it with pristine truth. If you’re motivated by justice, then advocate against the LGBT movement’s harmful crusade to promote high-risk homosexual behavior to our nation’s children. And if love guides your heart, then show love for your brethren by demanding LGBT leaders to place human life over political aggrandizement by making HIV/AIDS – not marriage- their first and foremost priority.

HIV men in monogamous relationships are no more at risk of HIV than any other sexual behavior, gay or str8. The HIV virus does not just magically appear with the onset of anal play. Your argument fails because a married male couple is NOT at risk of HIV exposure, unless (like any couple) one of them is already positive. Thanks for the lesson on the cell structure of the bowel, like 10,000 people before you haven't already shared that.

I'm calling bullshit on this. This is the talking point from some right wing fundamentalist site. I'm not even going to debunk theses lies, because they've been proven wrong time and time again.

It's laughable that young men would simply wish to try anal sex for shits and giggles. Laughable.

My partner and I are in our mid-fifties. We've been together for decades. Neither of us is HIV positive.

News flash; HIV isn't a gay disease. It's an STD, just like any other STD. STD's don't discriminate on the basis of gender, they're simply opportunistic.

http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/newsroom/docs/2012...

While it's sad that anyone is still getting infected with HIV, new cases of HIV have remained relatively stable.

If you're really going to pretend to be concerned about HIV infection, why are you ignoring heterosexual transmissions?
