Posted on 10/04/2006 4:42:23 PM PDT by wagglebee
LOS ANGELES, California, October 4, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) The Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center has abandoned a long-held homosexual activist contention by declaring on billboards posted throughout Southern California that HIV/AIDS is a gay disease.
According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the Center is trying to address rapidly increasing HIV infection rates among the homosexual population by rallying the gay community to increasing vigilance against exposure to the disease. Activists for the homosexual lifestyle have, until this current development, strongly, and sometimes vehemently refused to admit that the disease is predominantly generated among homosexual men.
The ad campaign, which is also running in magazines, is in part a response to the findings of public health officials, who have noted that three out of four cases of HIV infections are found in men who engage in homosexual activity, the United Press International reported.
In 2005 US health officials reported an alarming eight percent increase in HIV infection rates in one year alone among homosexual and bisexual men. The Center for Disease Control also warned that a survey of 15-29 year old men who engaged in homosexual activity reported that the proportion of unrecognized HIV infection was as high as 77 %.
A report by the Public Health Agency of Canada, released in August 2006, revealed a sharp increase in HIV/AIDS infections, with 51 percent of infections found in men engaging in homosexual activity.

The first step is admitting you have a problem. This is a part of their first step. Let's pray they're entirely converted.
I was under the impression at AIDS was everyone's problem, and all we had to do to keep it from spreading was wear a condom while giving blood.
Gasp! You can't say that!! Why, everyone knows that, that,...
Don't forget about wearing red ribbons!
And here I thought voting GOP spread AIDS to the poor, minorities, and children.
Most (normal people), Heterosexuals, have known this from the start, but the gay lobby has been covering this up from day one, with the help of the MSM of course.
The next thing a pro-abortion group will admit abortion is murder....
Sit Down and Shut Up!!
The Washington Times reported recently that nearly $1 million had been spent in recent weeks so that various employees of the U.S. Government could attend AIDS conferences.
Don't hold your breath on that!
We can only pray.
I guess it takes 25 years of getting hit in the face with facts to see the truth.
Not in Africa it isn't...
Do the taxpayers get the billions of dollars back?
Ya, I thought we all had to use rubbers, and that everyone was equally at risk from AIDS.
While I don't advocate being promiscuous, it's a medical and physical fact that the anus absorbs trauma during homosexual activity. And the trauma and tearing of tissue makes that activity more likely to spread infections. Whereas the vagina is designed for penetration . Anyone who is promiscuous can get venereal diseases, but AIDS is concentrated among certain groups. It's been a lie from day one that "we're all at risk, and that we're all equally at risk."
I remember donating blood about a dozen years ago, and being asked, "Have you ever exchanged sex for money?" My reply: "Are we including child support here?"
I figured this out a couple of months ago with simple math. My stats aren't entirely accurate because there are to many soft numbers however I figured that homosexuals were about 8x more likely to get AIDS than Hetros.
If you ask 80 gay men who contracted what number will deny being gay?
Better not tell George Clooney this.
!!!!! Illustrates my contention that if the govt stops squandering our money, many other problems will be solved at the same time.
I'm going to have to bookmark this one so I can point it out to those sissy marys who want to go on about all the heterosexuals in Africa with AIDS.
Remember when it was called GRID for Gay Related Immuno-Deficiency?
That was before cases appeared in heroin users, certain Haitian immigrants and hemophiliacs. The 4H Club as homosexuals and these groups were referred to. Or as the early 1980s joke put it, the hardest part of getting AIDS is trying to convince your mother that you're Haitian.
The root cause of HIV/AIDS is gay sex. Congress is spending billions of our tax dollars on HIV/AIDS. (I think it's more than $200 billion already.) Instead of thinking about gay sodomites engaging in a "lifestyle", we should think of them as a threat to public health worldwide. "Gay pride" defies logic.
You hit the nail right on the head. Are we to believe that the nations of sub-Saharan Africa, most of which can't afford even enough aspirin to treat the common cold and headaches, can afford the sort of testing kits and equipment requisite to a diagnosis of AIDS? The disease has become so highly politicized that the UN, WHO, and even the CDC have virtually dictated that ANY fever of unknown etiology, and ANY condition the nature of which is not immediately apparent, be labeled AIDS. And this in a part of the world in which tropical fevers of countless varieties carry off the residents with the speed and regularity of taxis at a city airport. The numbers for so-called AIDS cases in Africa are cooked and fraudulent.
There is a pandemic of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Please see NIAID Fact Sheet: The Evidence That HIV Causes AIDS for some detailed information about AIDS in Africa. (Look down the page for the section with the heading: In developing countries, patterns of both rare and endemic diseases have changed dramatically as HIV has spread, with a far greater toll now being exacted among the young and middle-aged, including well-educated members of the middle class.)
Only in the WHO and UN's wet dreams.
How many braindead people in the country didn't know this? Last count was 3.
This only makes sense if the people who attended were medical professionals.
"Better not tell George Clooney this."
or mark foley!!!!
Nah, everyone knows lack of funding spreads AIDS..........
Please elaborate, if you wish.
While it is just plain common sense that homosexual behavior is the biggest risk factor in getting AIDS, we have to remember that there are some innocent victims.
As a pediatric nurse, I recently took care of a very sick 7 month old. Her test results kept pointing towards HIV, and the dad admitted that he was HIV positive, had known for years and had never told his new wife. Baby was HIV positive, as was wife.
Earlier this year I took care of a ten year old boy who had been diagnosed as an infant. Turns out dad had an affair, mom was infected and didn't know. The little guy died a very slow, horrible death. Most of us have no idea how awful it is in the end.
Remember when Bush threw his Christian AIDS appointee Jerry Thacker (who, with his wife and baby, contracted AIDS from a blood transfusion) under the bus because Thacker's website was discovered to refer to AIDS as the "gay plague"?
