Honestly, Joe,

Who cares HOW it was introduced to N. America?

One way or another it would eventually be introduced, anyway. Whether by heterosexuals, as is the main method of transmission in Africa where it is an epidemic, or by blood transfusion or dirty needles or promiscuity between any two of any sexual persuasion, it is a VIRUS.

Do you now wish to blame the introduction of ebola or hepatitis or the Plague or papillomaviridae on someone in particular? Who would you blame for West Nile? How about poliomyelitis or tuberculosis?

These are all deadly viral diseases, just like HIV is a deadly viral disease.

Trying to blame someone in particular for any disease - unless a person deliberately infects an innocent victim - is both ignorant and peculiarly nearsighted.

Cures will be found.

You are such an ignorant ass about this!
Was it a "gay" man in Africa that introduced this virus to another, making HIV a "gay-only" viral disease?
Or was the first victim a hemophiliac?
You don't know.
I read a book once about a hemophilliac boy who contracted HIV from blood transfusions - back in the days when it was a death sentence.

Once when he was in hospital, some fundies came in to save him. She told him that Jesus could forgive him, even though he was a sinful shirt-lifting sodomite.

In actual fact, the boy was straight and had a girlfriend.

Exactly how do you see this kind of activity as a "dream"?

"The number of gay and bisexual men in the United States who said they had unprotected anal sex at least once in the past year jumped from 48 percent in 2005 to 57 percent in 2011, a new study finds.

"The researchers, from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this increase is cause for concern due to the high risk of being infected with HIV while having unprotected anal sex.

"HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Gay and bisexual men account for almost two-thirds of new infections ..."

It's an epidemiological nightmare that was started by the same people who are still perpetuating it.

Again, the numbers are purely ESTIMATES, NOT hard numbers and it obviously is something you like to spread as some sort of fact, which it's NOT!!!

Unless you know the methodology used by the CDC, the numbers and ESPECIALLY the percentages mean NOTHING...we DON'T know what those percentages mean...hell, for all we know they could mean 5.7 outta of 10 men.......or 57 Gay men or Bisexual men outta of a 100!!!

There are no excuses, Joe.

It is a virus. It was resident in chimp and monkey populations in Africa. It got into a human somewhere, probably numerous humans, most likely people who eat monkey as part of their diet.

It is a virus, Joe. It is a living, reproducing, viral pathogen that has adapted itself to humans in order to reproduce itself.

When it gets into the bloodstream in sufficient quantities, it reproduces by invading certain cells, taking them over and turning them into virus producing factories. Eventually, if left untreated, it kills the host.

Polio and tuberculosis do the same thing. Only, they are easier to transmit than HIV. But, they are just as devastating. Papillomavirus is another one. It eventually causes cervical cancer, which is a lethal disease, also.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob is another one, only more primitive. It eats the host's brain and inevitably kills. There is no known cure. It killed my grandfather, a renowned orthopedic surgeon who had saved many, many lives. Am I supposed to blame someone for his premature death from this wicked pathogen?

Who are you going to blame for papillomaviridae, Joe?

You, yourself, your physical self, are composed of a trillion living cells and agents, bacteria, viruses, prions, et cetera, that you constantly live with in addition to your own genetic progeny. Some of them, symbiotic, you literally cannot live without. Some are beneficial, some are harmful, some, like strep and staph are so potentially deadly that your system fights with them every second, minute and hour. Yet, YOU carry them and if you weaken, they will get you.

They are viruses and living pathogens, Joe. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Antigens, vaccines, viral-suppressants and cures will be found for them.
They are forms of life.

There are trillions of galaxies, each with hundreds of billions of stars and each star with planets, naturally. Life forms of all sorts exist throughout the Universe, composed of exactly the same materials as are you and I. They are supposed to exist and thrive.

What does the Bible say to do with them? "Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over ... every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."

It is an ongoing process and it remains to be seen whether or not humankind will eventually be known throughout our own galaxy as a beneficial creation or just another organically complex, ultimately self-destructive pathogen.

It is the hope of every Christian; every disciple of the Lord, Jesus Christ, that humankind will eventually follow His lead and take our rightful place among the stars.

Thank God.

Rosa.

You provide an example of the plain truth.

So many, who endlessly claim righteousness and profess personal virtue, Christian and otherwise, are the very worst of all in their hypocritical superstitions and taboo.

They keep a bag of stones hanging from their belts and are always ready to hurl another into oblivious death on a moment's notice.

It is no different from the unrestrained beheadings that are going on in northern Iraq.

There are plenty of threads about HIV/AIDS... this one is about "Homosexuality and the Bible." Neither the headline or the accompanying article has anything to do witrh HIV/AIDS statistics. I know I can't stop anyone from being off-topic, but you can stop yourself from enabling those who always try to change the topic.

But "nothing" was the only recourse as the recommended "treatment" for what was later called AIDS was abstinence, but that didn't appeal to promiscuous homosexuals.
When it first appeared in the 80s, medical personnel informally referred to HiV infections as Wrath of God (WoG) for its exclusive appearance in male homosexuals.
Yes. But, soon after that time, the disease and its cause became better understood. superstitions and wrongful moral assessments were discarded.

Many, not just some homosexuals, are at risk of contracting HIV.

It is a virus.

More to the point, a vaccine and cure will be found.

The Bible condemns homosexual sex. It warns judgment for those who practice anal sex.

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

That's a myth popularized by Randy Shiltz's book "And the Band Played On". Genetic analysis of HIV virus samples demonstrate HIV was introduced into the US by unknown persons from Haiti in the late 1960's or early 1970's.

Educate yourself and quit spreading lies:

"A group of international scientists presented data based on complex genetic analysis of 122 early samples of HIV-1, group M, subtype B (the most common strain found in the USA and in Haiti) showing that the strain had probably been brought to Haiti from Africa by a single person in around 1966; a time when many Haitians would have been returning from working in the Congo.

Genetic analysis then showed that subtype B spread slowly from person to person on the island, before being transferred to the US, again probably by a single individual, at some point between 1969 and 1972. A paper published in October 2007 by Worobey and colleagues gave a 99.7% certainty that HIV subtype B originated in Haiti before passing to the US.

It is possible that HIV had entered the US several times before subtype B took a firm hold (which would explain the infection of the St. Louis teenager in the early to mid-1960s), but it was the late 1960s / early 1970s transfer that is believed to be responsible for the widespread epidemic seen in the US today. Once the virus had established itself in the gay community, it would have spread fairly rapidly (anal intercourse carries a very high transmission risk), with transmission occurring within and between the US and Haiti, and internationally, until the original route taken by the virus was largely obscured."

Unprotected Sex On the Rise Among U.S. Gay Men, CDC Says

"The number of gay and bisexual men in the United States who said they had unprotected anal sex at least once in the past year jumped from 48 percent in 2005 to 57 percent in 2011, a new study finds.

"The researchers, from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this increase is cause for concern due to the high risk of being infected with HIV while having unprotected anal sex.

"HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Gay and bisexual men account for almost two-thirds of new infections, as well as half of all people in the United States who are currently living with HIV, the CDC said. There's also been a steady rise in new infections in recent years, concentrated mainly among young men ...

"For example, one out of every three HIV-positive gay and bisexual men who did not know they were infected had recent unprotected anal sex with a partner who they believed was HIV-negative or whose HIV status they did not know, the CDC found.

"On the other hand, HIV-positive gay and bisexual men who knew they were infected were 60 percent less likely to have unprotected sex with HIV-negative partners or those with unknown HIV status ..."

Only 60 percent? Why not 100 percent?

This just shows that homosexuality is a biological death cult; Gays and Bi's might as well wear suicide belts and shout "Allah Akbar" whenever they have unprotected sex.
