Over the years, I've known some masseurs in New York City. All of them told me that ultra-Orthodox Jewish men, nearly all of them married and the heads of large families, constituted a part of their client base.

Secrecy and furtiveness are prime causes of transmission.

And let's not forget the rampant sexual abuse of children by rabbis and some ultra orthodox leaders.

Why is it that it's okay to name catholic priests, imams, buddhist monks and others who molest kids and rape women, but not certain other people? It doesn't matter that we're discussion the same actions, the same crimes, it's considered "anti-semitism" to mention others doing the same thing.

And don't forget that gang of Jews in Brooklyn who viciously attacked that gay black man, causing him serious injuries. I have not heard that any arrests have been made in that case.

Before this thread turns into a "get the Jews" thread, let's try to remember that just as all Catholics, or all Lutherans, or all any other group has its' vile types, not all of any group, religious or otherwise, is not evil intrinsically. Some are, some are not. So let's refrain from generalizations. Thank you.

The communist Party (any communist party) nor the Nazi Party is NOT intrinsically Evil ?! I, along with millions of other people, disagree with you on that.

Specifically who said it is not okay? I seem to recall quire a bit of press about that pedophile rabbi in New Jersey some years back.

As a secular (and now atheist) person of Jewish background, I have never been interested enough in the Talmud to want to wade through any of the thing ("things" actually, as there are two of them). But I'd be curious about the passage specifically condemning anal sex. Can anyone quote it. I assume it is more specific than "thou shalt not lie with man as with woman" for the Torah.

Since in large term statistics oral sex does not transmit HIV on amjor scale but rather in isolated cases, it sounds like many of these Haredi Jews are indeed having anal sex.

I find Haredis as embarassing to Jews as snake handlers are to reasonable Christians. As Ralph said, all religions have people who are evil. I would further add that they also all have lots of people who are stupid.

I was talking about PEOPLE. I know for a fact that the Nazi Party was joined by some who otherwise were good people that were duped by Hitler. Many regretted having joined but by the time they realized who and what he was, it was too late to quit. I would imagine that the same happened in the Communist party, particularly in the U.S.

I don't know why I even try to discuss something with you after all this time. I should know by now that you don't want to discuss, but just try to make what you consider little humorous jibes. To you the whole world is black and white. Good and evil. Too bad the world is really full of gray areas. A concept which you obviously do not grasp.
