Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

HIV is an equal opportunity sexually infectious disease. This we all know but it is also is found disproportionately among the homosexual groups. Meaning higher number of infections compared to other groups in the general population.
Look, I know sex is a powerful force. But so is infectious diseases. Hepatitis being one of the most prominent out there can easily be transmitted. Not to mentioned the possibility of unwanted pregnancies among heterosexuals.
People need to know the truth. The truth is condoms offer some level of protection but they can tear, become porous, and fail. If people want to take those risk then ok. As long as they know all the facts.
The fact is abstaining offers the highest level of protection. With 50,000 new HIV in the United States alone, and estimated 19 million new STD infections occur each year (CDC).
"This paper outlines aspects of the HIV/AIDS epidemic scenario and the complexities associated with it. It reveals the socio-epidemiological patterns of the epidemic and in doing so identifies the populations with the greatest and fastest growing rates of infection. From the data presented it is evident that the pattern of HIV/AIDS in developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa in particular is unique. The pattern emerging in South Africa follows closely. The features of this pattern are as follows: the epidemic is mainly a heterosexual epidemic, the rates of infection in the general population are very high and the percentage of HIV-positive women is greater than men. An additional unique feature is the young
age of onset of infection for women. These data demonstrate the need to focus our attention on young African women and the factors underpinning their predicament. In order to understand their position we examine the long standing relationship between social inequalities and health in general and further invoke the concepts of vulnerability and social capital to shed light on the position of women in the epidemic.
Within the constraints of limited and problematic statistical data, the paper argues that a mixture and complex interaction of material, social, cultural and behavioural factors shape the nature, process and outcome of the epidemic in South Africa. It concludes with recommendations for the way forward."

Only in first world nations does HIV enjoy higher prevalence among homosexual men - and that's because of discrimination.
HIV/AIDS travels on lines of discrimination. Worldwide, working age heterosexual women have the highest prevalence rates of HIV/AIDS, followed by their infected children and heterosexual lovers.
If you care about the truth you'd do more reading. Start here:

You're an idiot.
The control of STDs requires knowing how people within cultures behave, what kinds of structural barriers they face to obtaining nutrition and health care, and producing accessible and affordable health services, prophylactics and education. STD transmission is enhanced by religious bigotry, discrimination, poverty and gender inequality. The biggest payoffs to reducing STDs lie in making women economically independent from men - check any World Bank or IMF report on the issue.
People like you, with your gross, uninformed blathering add to the problem. Abstinence campaigns do much more harm that good - they're like covering your eyes to avoid the oncoming truck rather than getting out of the way.
But you won't read the World Bank reports, will you? You'll just make more fiction up and tell us how it really is, won't you Moonbeam?
There are parallels between fundie Christians
and the fundie Islamist aka like the Taliban in treatment of women . Just the fundie Christian has to contend with the laws of the west which overrule any theocratic thinking.

But if the fundie christian were left unchecked I'd bet there would be little distinction between the two.
Like these hard liners "just retorts" and the other who who likely pitch all the gay people in a concentration camp.
It sorta makes me sick of religion altogether, but I know most aren't like that.

Just the fundietards. Then we have the evolution is a lie , science rebellion , but they are almost a comical bunch who twist around and kiss their own asses in effort to prove science is wrong. We live in a strange world full of freaks!

Throughout the Bible, biblical writers had warned the people of GOD to be on the look out for an infiltration of false prophets and teachers. Peter writes in the New Testament that these religious fakers secretly bring in destructive heresies (2 Peter 2:1). The idea is that they are stealth-like with the promotion of their theological errors; they bring their false teachings in their churches and deceive the unweary. The Apostle Jude affirms this truth with similar words when he writes, For uncertain men have crept in unnoticed (Jude 4) among us. They are like thieves sneaking into a house at night, but their theft is to steal away doctrinal soundness from the true believers. In addition to these two warnings, Paul's final words to the Ephesian elders were even more vivid when he exhorts them to take heed to themselves and the people they shepherd because, as he puts it, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock (Acts 20:28, 29). These warnings, and others like them, are even more necessary to heed now then ever before. For the deceit by Christians in the 21st century is even more prevalent than in Paul's time or when the apostles first wrote them. George Orwell once said that in a sea of deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. The proliferation of Christian radio, television networks, and the advent of the internet have given hundreds of inroads for these Christian false teachers to smuggle doctrinal error to congregations of true believers. There are literally hundreds of Christian radio and television para-churches, Christian ministries that pepper the global landscape with their Christian evangelicalism, each one supposedly offering "solid" teaching for the gullible audience. These ministries, acting under the guise of biblical authority, serve up some of the worse spiritual poison imaginable. On top of these broadcast ministries, the internet has given rise to literally thousands of Christian web sites. Some of those "Christian" web sites are so blatantly bad, that people can easily recognise the deceit, while others are less conspicuous, introducing their errors in unsuspecting ways. Now, more than ever, is the time for people who believe in the true GOD of Heaven to be on the alert to those Christians and their phony, man-made god, they call Je-Zeus Christ. These Christians are "spiritual serial-killers" stalking the people of GOD, either in the form of their Christian broadcasts, be it radio, television, published books, or the internet. Their false teaching is deadly serious; because it can damn a persons soul/spirit to everlasting death to those people who are blinded by its errors and deceit never allowing them to understand the truth. It can entangle people with wrong thinking that will rob them of the joy and delight of walking in the light of GOD. Take a good look at the divisions that exist within the Christian churches. Their false teaching has fragmented Christian believers and have disrupted their fellowship with one another. It is all the more reason that true believers of GOD need to cultivate discernment. For the reality of spiritual invasion by those Christian false teachers should cause people to be very weary of them. This is especially true when they encounter the variety of so-called ministries with any of the mediums mentioned above. Because of this ever present danger, people need to question any of those Christian "ministries" or popular Bible teachers on what they preach. All I can say is to be very wary when you hear Christians preach to you in order to protect yourself from their clever deceit, especially those believers who may be uncertain about a specific religion, Christian ministry or so called "Bible" teacher.
