to antibiotics, is now spreading among homosexual males in San Francisco, Boston, New York and Los Angeles, according to a new report in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
"Due to liberal political correctness, which insists on treating aberrant even deadly behaviors and lifestyles as a 'civil right,' we as a society don't seem to have learned much from the AIDS pandemic," he said.
He called it an "eerie reminder" of the first stories about AIDS. "It is unfathomable that after that plague, disease specialists and the media are now surprised at the correlation of a new infection with homosexual behavior," he said.
The bacteria is called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and has been seen previously in hospitalized patients. However over the last few years, researchers said its impact has expanded, with a strain called USA300 now being documented as an exceptionally drug-resistant variant.
The bacteria is resistant to six common antibiotics, and the study revealed that nearly 1 in 500 residents in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood is infected. The risk homosexuals will contract it is 13 times greater than the rest of the city's population.
"Television shows like Will and Grace glorify the homosexual lifestyle while our children are taught in schools that homosexuality is a perfectly healthy, alternative sexual 'orientation.' 'Stay out of our bedrooms!' we're often commanded by militant 'gay' activists," he said. "Well, now the dangerous and possibly deadly consequence of what occurs in those bedrooms is spilling over into the general population. It's not only frightening, it's infuriating.
"Citizens, especially parents, need to stand up and say, 'No More! We will no longer sit idly by while politically correct cultural elites endanger our children and larger communities through propagandist promotion of this demonstrably deadly lifestyle,'" he said.

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
The wages of sin. A lesson to us all.
That story sounds a lot like about 1982.
The day is coming when this kind of article and the posting thereof shall be deemed prosecutable hate speech and those who read same and fail to report the hate speech will be deemed accomplices.
Ask not for whom the Commie bell tolls, it tolls for thee.
We should NOT be encouraging homosexuality in our society, and ESPECIALLY our schools.
But this disease does deserve the same public attention that we give other self-inflicted diseases like lung cancer as well as self-inflicted conditions like alcoholism and drug abuse.
From the ....Anals of Internal Medicine......there, fixed it......
You bring up an intersting point-
The find that smoking *may be hazardous* to your health.
What do they do? Many places now have smoking bans.
They find that drinking while stupid causes accidents/ fights/drownings/car crashes.
What do they do? Some places ban alcohol.
They find that homosexual behavior is killings thousands of men each year.
What do they do? Sweep it under the rug.
If the nanny-staters and liberals are going to dictate our lives “for our own good” why can’t they be at least consistant?
Oh yeah, agenda. I forgot.
What parent in their right mind would want their children subjected to a lifestyle that would lower their lifespan by 30 years?
If your son or daughter came to you and said that they were going take up jumping out of an airplane using a parachute that failed 50% of the time, and if the parachute didn’t fail they had an 80% chance of being hurt and a 50% chance of that injury causing permanent damage and if they didn’t get injured in the jump they had a much higher risk of being murdered, becoming addicted to drugs or alcohol, having emotional problems and dying by the time they were 42
Would you want the public schools, politicians and parachute activists encouraging your child to engage in this lifestyle? Wouldn’t you want the school to make them aware of the risks? Wouldn’t you feel that parents that who didn’t do all they could to discourage this lifestyle were bad parents?
No instead the liberals and homosexual activists want it considered hate crime to even talk about these things.
I think this is where conservatives have made their mistakes, they try to frame their arguments in relgious and moral convictions instead of just publishing the facts.
This is nothing like alcoholism or lung cancer. We are creating increasingly resistent strains of bacteria that will be a plague on all. And drug abuse is illegal.
It already is in both England and Canada.
the posting thereof shall be deemed prosecutable hate speech
Well if that happens I’ll move to Canada!
oh wait....never mind
***Annals of Internal Medicine.***
Play on words?
No wonder we won the cold war!
No, they don't sweep it under the rug ... they "celebrate" it.
They blamed Reagan last time. They will blame Bush in 20 years.
The most frightening thing about this particular plague is the ease with which it can spread to those who do not engage in the risky behavior. Consider the possibility that a gay with highly resistant staphylococcus bacteria uses a restroom before a person with an open wound (not yet healed). The likelihood of transmission is there and without any untoward behavior. Pretty scary.
Unfortunately, this particular wage of sin (unlike AIDS, by and large) will rapidly spread to the population at large.
AIDS can be prevented by not performing sodomy or having random sex.
A staph infection can be picked up from a doorknob.
What a coincidence ...
Time to ban smoking in bars - it’s killing too many people.
I know. Ive been a medical transcriptionist for 15 years and am very aware of MRSA. Type it daily. It’s nothing new, but is getting a lot of publicity lately.
Aids was a mostly voluntary disease acquired through behavioral choices. Staph infections are something else.
I read that 90,000 + people die from staph infections (excluding this new superbug) picked up in American hospitals each year. More than die from auto accidents or gunshots.
Amazing how many people are willing to take a chance on illness or death over sex.
That’s what bothers me: The contagion is being driven by a certain vector, but is not dependent on the same vector. A societal behavior risks an entire population, not just the subculture it comes from.
Why is it we must be tolerant of this, again? It is getting harder and harder to explain...
If you cheat and read the end of the book...the bugs win. Their more adaptable.
That is odd. Wonder how that would occur?
Some cases even have developed into "necrotizing fascitis," the so-called "flesh-eating" disease because of its quick progression that often requires surgery, or amputation, to halt its progress, the report said.
Sounds like the problem is self-correcting.
THIS and other extremely expensive medical problems caused by this behavior, are what is wrong with health care and the costs. It far out weighs even illegal immigration. There are just too many serious and even deadly medical issues caused by this behavior to even name them, and even if someone did, a lot of it would not be printed here since the language would be explicit and most people with logical rational minds, would be sickened.
AIDS is just a SMALL part of the problem entering into this deadly lifestyle exposes homosexuals to.
I would say all the money spent to find a cure for this completely preventable disease in largely to blame for our economy woes too. Couple the cost of looking for cures, with the cost per month for these drug cocktails for AIDS or HIV alone and it’s enough to bankrupt any health care provider.
Scary indeed! Imagine a homosexual working in a restaurant, or as a teacher, exposing mass numbers of people, including children. And you cannot discriminate! The right to an orgasm no matter how depraved and dangerous trumps the health of the general public. And all the health organizations and legislators can think to do is jump on board with the brainless second hand smoke bandwagon. And the obesity bandwagon. Demonize law abiding citizens and promote anything criminal or deviant.
Another good reason not to be a tourist in San Francisco.
"And would you like some MRSA with that salad?"
It’s all over wresting mats in high schools throughout America already- poor kids!
Bet the homosexual community claims the C.I.A. in collusions with G.W. Bush are responsible for this one too.
True, but most people would say that disqualifies a lot of cities and even towns, all over the country. Certainly anywhere in the NE or coastal west. Even FLA.
