Really, there is only one reason - people are still not using their sexuality the way God intended, It was for intimacy and procreation in marriage, which is the union of a man and a woman. It was not for recreational purposes no more than our lungs were provided for inhaling tobacco and other drugs. As long as people continue to misuse and abuse their bodies, there will be consequences, if not HIV then something else, Notice I said people and not homosexuals,

Go rail about those who smoked tobacco and got cancer.

Keep railing about anyone and everyone who ever has sex for reasons other than for spawning.

Single out heterosexuals for your defamation and pogroms since AIDS is overwhelmingly a disease of heterosexuals worldwide.

You batsht crazy bigot.

You're ignorant. Educate yourself,

" All told, some 73% of HIV infections are accounted for by men who have sex with men and intravenous drug users, groups that comprise less than 5% of the US population. Even for someone who contracts HIV through heterosexual contact, there’s a good chance she got it from a bisexual man or a needle drug addict.

To give you a firmer idea of how the risk compares between groups, I divided the prevalence of HIV among all groups and divided them by the prevalence among sober straight white men. For example, a man who has sex with men is 700 to 800 times more likely to have HIV than a sober straight white man, the reference group. "

Wrong, filth. I said worldwide. You just disregard poor people and people of color in all matters and so couldn't abide the notion that people in Africa count.

Now go and rail against heterosexuals who ever engage in non procreative sex, Cletus. The results from doing that should be funny for your fundie franchise.

Of course, as with your conveniently ignoring other "sins" besides the all-fixated-on homosexual one, you mullah freeeks will never dare be consistent with your brayed principles.

More: "A quarter of a century after the outbreak of Aids, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has accepted that the threat of a global heterosexual pandemic has disappeared....Dr De Cock, an epidemiologist who has spent much of his career leading the battle against the disease, said understanding of the threat posed by the virus had changed. Whereas once it was seen as a risk to populations everywhere, it was now recognised that, outside sub-Saharan Africa, it was confined to high-risk groups including men who have sex with men, injecting drug users, and sex workers and their clients."

Whether it will break out to be a pandemic, i.e., something much worse than it's been, is a separate matter from the obvious fact that AIDS worldwide is overwhelmingly now a disease afflicting heterosexuals.

Even though, of course, in your sick mentality, black or African or poor people are not people.

Now stop lying fer jeesus, freeek.

So go rail against heterosexuality on the basis of STDs, including AIDS. Go rail against those who covet. Go rail against heterosexuals who ever engage in non procreative sex. Go rail against those who smoke tobacco and get cancer.

Your entire mentality is so disturbed it's unbelievable that you buybull freeeks aren't ashamed to peddle your hypocritical crp, you christianist-hate vermin. Amen.

Hey cretin, your comment does not mean that AIDS worldwide is not overwhelmingly a disease of heterosexuals. It is overwhelmingly a disease of heterosexuals...except in the addled minds of racists.

There is no rational basis for the current policy on blood donations. This would be too complicated for you to follow, Cletus.

And even people who merely traveled to England decades ago can't donate blood in the US.

The type of sex one engages in isn't the problem. Unprotected sex and young men thinking they are invincible are the problems. And education can help both of these issues.

Good grief, man, Those were quotes from the CDC, not something that Chance made up. Here's confirmation from the British Medical Journal: "Within countries, there are sub-populations who are particularly vulnerable to HIV infection, such as sex workers and their clients, MSM and IDU. The HIV virus is often found predominantly within these subpopulations (sometimes called core-groups) at the beginning of an epidemic when prevalence is extremely low in the general population. 30,,31

The fact that HIV raises the culturally sensitive issues of sexuality, gender inequality, commercial sex, MSM and IDU has often led to denial of the problem and reluctance to address it, which obviously exacerbates the problem."

http://bmb.oxfordjournals.org/content/58/1/7....

THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE DOING: DENYING the problem and EXACERBATING the problem.

In case you don't know, MSM is men who have sex with men regardless of whether or not they identify as gay.

But not here in the US. It's a gay disease here and if a straight person got it it can be traced back to a gay. No one here killing monkeys for food.

The chance that a person becomes infected with HIV during one particular sexual contact varies greatly and depends on many factors7. Male to female penile-vaginal transmission appears to be 2–3 times more efficient than female to male transmission8,,9 and there is some evidence that first sexual intercourse for females may be associated with particularly high transmission probabilities10,,11. Receptive anal intercourse appears to be more risky than receptive vaginal intercourse with obvious implications for spread amongst men who have sex with men (MSM)12. Cases of infection by oral sex have been reported but this mode of transmission is believed to be much less risky than penile-vaginal or penile-anal sex7.

You stupid cretin, pay attention for once in your buybull babbling life:

AIDS worldwide is overwhelmingly a disease of heterosexuals.

Nothing you fundie morons have posted or can post from a genuine source refutes this simple fact. The mongoloids have been responding with stats about the US. The US is not the world, contrary to what your racist pastor tells you indirectly every Sunday.

It's just you're all so racist that you wish to pretend the continent of Africa does not exist.

Now, if you wish to use AIDS as a cudgel to defame a group with - and you sickeningly do wish to do this in a complete inversion of everything the golden rule stands for - then by the worldwide statistics it is heterosexuals as a group you should be defaming on the basis of AIDS.

Of course, educated people would not do such a thing to begin with...just as we don't run around braying in dehumanizing ways at tobacco users who get cancer.

So what, you mongoloid? Why does the rest of the world not exist just so you can make your bigoted, anti rational point? Because you're racist, that's why. And a defamatory lier fer jeebus.

Also, race and class and youthfulness are about as strong correlates as sexual orientation regarding AIDS in the US since about 1988.

I know this concept of correlates will be far too hard for mouthbreather cretins who can't acknowledge the existence of Africa to follow, but it's a simple fact.

Well if you weren't raped then something else must explain the ferocity of your obsession with feces and with child molestation and with (male) homosexuality. Perhaps you didn't get raped, perhaps you keep getting drunk and "slip" by picking up another closet case to have mutually shame inducing sex.

Listen fundie freeek, the numbers of total AIDS deaths of heterosexuals to those of homosexuals worldwide is not even close. We have not had tens of millions of deaths from AIDS in the US, as serious as the disease has been here. The "country of Africa" has had millions upon millions upon millions of deaths. But those deaths don't "count" to the evilgelical mindset due to the evilgelicals' racism.

It is an overwhelmingly heterosexual disease worldwide. You're dissembling fer jeeesus again when you keep trying to slightly or not so slightly change some variable under discussion. Jeeesus will be very, very angry with you for your lying and for your hatefulness.

So if AIDS is what outrages you so, you should get to work indiscriminately defaming heterosexuals. Along with all those people who smoked tobacco and got cancer.
