Obama urges Americans get tested for HIV 33 mins ago

WASHINGTON (AFP) – President Barack Obama on Saturday urged his fellow Americans to get tested for HIV in an effort to reduce transmission of the virus that causes AIDS.

"On this 14th commemoration of National HIV Testing Day, I urge Americans to take control of their own health -- and protect those they love -- by getting tested for HIV and working to reduce HIV transmission," Obama said in a statement.

"While its impacts are not evenly spread -- infection rates are particularly high among gay and bisexual men, African Americans and Latinos -- when one of our fellow citizens becomes infected with HIV every nine-and-a-half minutes, the epidemic affects all Americans," he said.

Not until I get a KonMA Obama.

Apparently ALL concerns worldwide have been taken care of and now Obama is bored and looking at Congress to lend them a helping hand. /s

Infection rates are largely confined to gay and bisexual men. Despite all the shock horrow warnings, HIV has not “leaked” into the heterosexual community in the west in any numbers. Proof once again that the so called sexual revolution wasnt all that revolutionary.

Bah. Waste of money and resources for 97% of the population. The rest know who they are. Anyway, AIDS is a minor health problem compared to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. He should be urging people to get tested for these conditions.

infection rates are particularly high among gay and bisexual men

Then why should the gay and bisexual "lifestyles" be promoted as healthy and normal "alternatives" to school children? Why should marriage laws be extended to homosexuals?

Cigarettes, sugary drinks, and fast food are supposed to be bad because of their health effects, but this logic is never extended to homosexuality and promiscuity.

Well, I wouldn’t trust a government clinic to practice safe testing procedure with needles. They will probably test an HIV+ guy, then rinse off the needle and test you.

Why? I need no test, I know I don’t have it, and the vast majority of people in the US don’t have it nor are they likely to get it. The only time you should be tested for HIV is when your spouse runs off to Argentina to have an affair. It would be a really good idea for Sanford’s ex to be checked! Bozo if probably speaking from experience, after all he is a bi isn’t he?

Maybe he wants to track down the source of a dirty needle he shared in his younger days.

That might explain his Michael Jackson physique.

No Hussein, the “epidemic” does NOT affect all Americans. It affects homosexuals and drug users almost exclusively. Anyhow, is this part of your payback to bigtime homosexual donors?

Obama urges Americans get tested for HIV

Ummm..., that only applies to those who go for “strange flesh”... LOL...

[... and yes, I know that it’s unfortunate that those of the “strange-flesh” persuasion do end up contaminating things in such a way that their own punishment ends up on other people...]


Romans 1:16-32

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes 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, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,

23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,

25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;

32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.


In case a reader or two missed it...

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

ZERO, mind your own damn business.

If one exercises morality and virtue one does not generally have to worry about AIDS (HIV now, wonder why that changed?) nor much of any other STD.

Back in 1982 when AIDS first came to the scene it was limited to “certain” populations. Not that those “certain” populations couldn’t make up their minds they have spread it to other “populations”.

AIDS used to stand for Another Infected D... Sucker because that is who had it.

AIDS be racist.

And given the way ostammer and the rest of the left reason, straight whites should line up for an injection of the disease. Then the playing field will be level.

when one of our fellow citizens becomes infected with HIV every nine-and-a-half minutes, the epidemic affects all Americans.

Only in that the rest of us have to pay for it. The federal government is spending about 25 billion dollars per year on HIV/AIDS specific research and subsidized treatment.

Meanwhile, the involuntary diseases which normal people catch receive approximately diddly.
