Whats the differene between Civil-Union and Marriage? How does the law treat them differently in this state? Is the argument merely over the words themselves?

Yes, you can. HOWEVER, it was initially transmitted how? You see, all cases can be traced to sex between two men.
Does it matter? AIDS is a disease, like the flu. Like the flu caused by a virus, and spread from person to person. There is no special moral significance to it. And in the US, the flu kills more people than AIDS.

Most people with AIDS are straight? How do you know they are straight? Yeah if you count helpless innocent babies and those who got it through blood transfusions and percutaneous needle sticks and stupid needle sharing drug users maybe you're right that straights are at the top of the list! What about the ones who gave and took it through insertive and receptive a n a l intercourse? How many of them do you think are straight? Receptive and insertive p e n i l e - v a g i n a l intercourse are only second to Receptive and insertive o r a l intercourse so I say straights who got it through s e x are at the bottom of the list! Where did it start! This is no chicken and the egg here!

It doesn't? Then why is the rate higher for insertive and receptive p e n i l e - a n a l intercourse than receptive and insertive p e n i l e - v a g i n a l intercourse? Are you saying steven that more straights have p e n i l e - a n a l intercourse than gays? GET REAL! Are you 15 years old and watch a lot of P O R N or something?

So, are you saying that money devoted to AIDS research should be diverted to influenza research?

You're determining right and wrong with this book?

Exodus 21:20 "If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, 21 but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.

How frightening.

Here is a good website that helps explain where the HIV and AIDS came from.

Read through and see what you think. No it doesn't have anything to do with the bible or any other mythology reference.

A number of gay men in New York and California suddenly began to develop rare opportunistic infections and cancers that seemed stubbornly resistant to any treatment.

Steven was right!

Here is the culprit Chad Littlejohn! Didn't one of his relatives just mangle a women in Conn? No wonder gay men wanted to have sex with them! They are more man than a REAL man!

How pompous can you be? The truth of the matter is that none of us actually know about our origins or what happens to us when we die. It is all opinion. including the Bible. To refer to it as "mythology" is really self-righteous. Everyone's beliefs are to be respected, or your own become moot.

In it's simplest sense, we are on a massive rock that revolves around and even larger, molten rock. I ask, given this, just what are YOUR beliefs?

I have set you up, let me see if you take the bait, bet you will......
