The half truth of AIDS - anybody can get it

With the upcoming Rick Warren AIDS conference and the recent news that DC has 10 times the national average infection rate, it's time for a dose of reality.

Reality Risks:
1. Having intimate relations with someone infected.
2. Sharing needles.
3. Direct contact with infected body fluids.
footnote: just as it was over 30 years ago, anal sex among men is still the highest at risk group.

Perhaps at the Rick Warren AIDS conference there will be discussions on getting the medical community to report AIDS as they are required by law to report other communicable diseases like the measles, syphilis, meningitis etc.. If I am not mistaken, folks can go to jail who refuse treatment of these conditions. On the other hand, AIDS is secret, anonymous, and requires no partner notification type epidemic. It's cure apparently is more cultural sensitivity and less uncomfortable facts, lest we offend the out and proud activist.

When the CDC and other like minded blame homophobia on the spread of AIDS, I submit to you they have not a clue, nor do they really desire to address the real issues surrounding sexual immorality. Why? That would force them to recognize a source of morality and put them in the most uncomfortable position of being subject to judgement.

Sex outside of marriage is destructive.
Homosexuality is destructive.
Drug use is destructive.
Lieing is destructive.

God didn't give us His law to make us miserable, He gave it because He loves and cares about us.

Remember: If you don’t support more funding for HIV/AIDS you are homophobic.

But HIV/AIDS is not a gay disease, and you are homophobic if you suggest it is.
