Move to Massachusetts, get married, I'm sure EVERYONE will be faithful, and voila! No more AIDS. GET REAL.

Was riding my bike through San Onofre State Park and noticed a bunch of signs that said, "Syphillis is here, get yourself tested!", then I realized that the south end of the park is notorious for people of the other pursuasion hanging out and hoping to get lucky.

I cycled a whole lot faster!

The syphilis rise and potential increases in AIDS cases will cause untold increases in lost wages, healthcare costs and human suffering, Feldman said. All of this easily could "be ameliorated with additional money abstinence," he said.

Yeah, more money. Not. There's a cure for AIDS. Works each and every time.

Information on sexual orientation is often not collected by health departments

Then they ain't doing their job. The point of making Syphilis a reportable disease is to do contact tracing. How the hell do they do contact tracing if they don't know the orientation of the infected individual? Or to they refuse to "assume" orientation when given a list of same sex partners. Would that be the dreaded "profiling"?

The administration also requested decreasing the CDC's budget for prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, which already barely registers at a scant $168 million for the entire country for 2003.

I heard this reported on FOX.
The homosexuals and their diseases just keep on giving. They're a serious health hazard. My guess is America is finally catching on. It's about time!
First AIDS, the homosexual pedophile priests blacken the Catholics, the queer Bishop blackens the Episcapalians, outrage against homosexuals wanting to "get married", then Michael the kiddy homo gets busted, now they're passing around Syphilis (Romans 1 re-run?).
At least the crud is comming to the surface. People need to hear it.

Heightening concern further is the fact that syphilis increases the risk of HIV transmission by two to five times, because the genital sores caused by syphilis serve as portals of entry for the AIDS virus

Oh puke!

Blank noted when her department interviewed a number of gay and bisexual men in 2002 about their sexual habits, it found recruiting sexual partners over the Internet was a common practice, including among those infected with syphilis.

Something is really wrong with anyone who would behave in this manner....soliciting sexual partners over the internet?
Duh!!! these guys really have a very sick death wish.

As Blaise Pascal noted 400 years ago: Those who indulge in perversion tell those who are living normal lives that it is they who are deviating from what is natural. They think they are following a natural life themselves. They are like people on a ship who think it is those on shore who are moving away. Language is relative everywhere. But we need a fixed point for those who are moving aboard ship. But in morality, where are we going to find a harbor?

Both H&C and Greta have turned into exclusively legal shows .....Jacko, Petersons, Kobe, etc. I tuned in tonight to see updates on the Al Qaeda terrorism in Turkey, Bush's trip to the U.K., the riots in Miami over the trade conference, etc., but ended up only seeing an endless stream of the same 5 second video clip of Jackson being taken in handcuffs and a bunch of his freaky acquaintances telling us what a great guy he is. Well, I guess the FOX brass thinks that the majority of people tuning in want to see that crap. .....and perhaps they do.

The gay poulation will be always be the carriers and transmitters of whatever new and ever more powerful diseases come along.

Its why God does not want us to engage in homosexuality.

Its not natural or good for humanity.

More people have died from homosexually transmitted diseases than have died from green house gasses, global warming, hand guns and the war on terrorisim combined.

What a cynic! Do you mean that Liza Minelli's hubby's 'EXCLUSIVE' interview on Greta saying Michael was nothing short of Mother Teresa and then the lower part of the gene pool, and neighbors, and hairdressers, and Rita's 'sources close to the Jackson camp' all testifying to how he couldn't have done it didn't RIVET you to your chair? I'm just (phew!) so relieved that we get to continue to see Geragos for the REST OF OUR NATURAL LIVES ON FOX now that he's also taken on Jacko. KILL ME NOW.

Percentagewise the numbers are quite different. Also, percentagewise homosexuals account for a third of all child molestations. That's really disturbing considering homosexuals comprise about 1% of the population.

Flesh eating bacteria (no cure but to slice it off) mutated from auto immune defeceint (AID) patients. It was once a simple strep infection. "Their flesh will be devoured as they stand."
What will mutate next? Syphilis would be my guess.

I don't understand why syphilis is making a 'comeback', unless it's because of all of our immigration - different customs, no medical screening any more to get in here (can't profile!). Or maybe we're now calling syphilis what it is - instead of just lumping it into the 'STD' category.

"The great majority of cybersexers are heterosexual"

So are the great majority of people having sex. What is telling is the high proportion of the homo/bi/sexuals who engage in these "high risk" behaviors.

" I'm not worried about this at all because I lift weights."

I'm not worried about this either because the only woman I've had full-fledged sex with is my wife , and as far as I know she has been faithful to me all these 16 years .

My take is they have turned into tabloid shows likened to the national inquirer. My TV will have to be turned off because the sexploitaion is making me ill.

"What will mutate next? Syphilis would be my guess."

Surprisingly no, syphilis is still sensitive to many of the older variants of the penicillin class of antibiotics. They are the drugs of choice unless there is a history of penicillin allergy.

I don't have an explanation why the organism that causes syphilis, Treponema pallidum, doesn't have the have the tendency to mutate and develop drug resistance like so many other organisms, other than it has genes to prevent mutations, but that's just my speculation.

I do, science coming out with new medicines and homo's and their diseases being classed as victims/protected instead of what they are; disease carrying (potential carriers for those who do not have something yet) transmitters. Science and their cocktails of drugs have made homo's immune to rational thought. Crimeny...There are idiots out there "chasing the bug"..These idiots are actively searching the "gift" (as they call it) of AIDS. They know they get special treatment, special rights and kid gloves all the way around.

Disgusting to the core.

Indeed. What's sad is some folks try to deny the very fact that some have chased the bug:

and then there's this film on it:

IIRC, legal immigrants are tested for TB, syphilis, HIV/AIDS, and hepatitis B and C viruses. There could be more communicable diseases for which they are tested.

Syphilis was never completely eliminated. In the past it was called "the great impersonator" because it could resemble so many other diseases depending on its stage of progression.

There has been a notable disregard in the homosexual and bisexual population of the practices that constitute "safe sex", especially since the development of the newer drugs to treat HIV/AIDS.

For all of their supposed sophistication, many of these ignorant folks don't understand that it's a chronic, progressive, fatal disease that has no cure or promissing vaccine on the horizon. Not only that, they seem to think it's everybody else's fault.
