Another killer disease striking homosexuals
WorldNetDaily ^ | April 15, 2013 | Garth Kant

"Health officials work to diffuse fears of national epidemic"

“Gay” sex is becoming even more dangerous.

Health officials are warning sexually active “gay” men about an outbreak of potentially deadly bacterial meningitis in Los Angeles and New York.

The disease has infected 22 people in New York and caused seven deaths since 2010. Health officials in Los Angeles are testing to see if the strain infecting “gay” men there is the same one hitting New York.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation began offering free meningitis vaccines today after a “gay” man from West Hollywood was declared brain dead on Friday.

Thirty-three-year-old lawyer Brett Shaad died within a week of feeling sick.

Authorities suspect he was exposed to bacterial meningitis at a party in Palm Springs the weekend of March 30 that attracts “gay” revelers from across the country.

The New York Daily News is calling the disease an STD threat, even though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not classify bacterial meningitis as a sexually transmitted disease.

The CDC does say the disease can not be spread by casual contact, but, “Some bacteria can spread through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions (e.g., kissing).”

KTLA reported the death of Shaad, a West Hollywood lawyer, has caused alarm.

“We’re not saying at this point that we have an outbreak in Los Angeles,” Michael Weinstein, president of the AHF, told KTLA. “But we know that this disease is serious, it’s deadly and that it can spread relatively easily.”

The AP reported Shaad went to an emergency room on Wednesday and on Thursday he was in a coma.

Symptoms of the disease often appear within three to seven days of exposure. They include fever, stiff .......

22 people affected in 3 years? Falling anvils have done more damage in that amount of time.

Because they draw blood and feces when they have sex, they will forever be the transmitters of disease.

It’s science.

WASHINGTON, DC, June 6, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) –

A study which analyzed tens of thousands of gay obituaries and compared them with AIDS deaths data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), has shown that the life expectancy for homosexuals is about twenty years shorter than that of the general public.

The study, entitled “Gay obituaries closely track officially reported deaths from AIDS”, has been published in Psychological Reports (2005;96:693-697).

Male homosexual average life expectancies are 39 with AIDS, and 41 WITHOUT AIDS . . . using their own data.

Life expectancy of people who smoke . . . in their 70s.

But we cater to homosexual infiltration in our junior and high schools, suggest that it's something they can't control or cure, and rip the cigarettes out of their mouths. Now, who are the morons???????

Lawyer Brett Shaad complained about a pounding in the rear. Nope, nothing to see here. Move on, folks.

Seriously, it never ceases to amaze me how gays can engage in the riskiest behaviors and actually believe there are no consequences. After the problems their behaviors have caused become apparent, suddenly it becomes everyone’s problem to fix. Why is that?

A simple fact. It draws widespread condemnation when they are confronted with it. If they want less disease, stop buggering each other.

Maybe they could sue the disease for bigotry and homophobia.

Back in the 80's when AIDS first appeared, a libtard told me that they had it on good authority that the disease was introduced by American scientists to monkeys to reduce the population of poor people in Africa.

I told her that I'd read that AIDS could only be spread through sexual intercourse. So if the scientists boinked monkeys then either (a)they would have had to caught them in the act, (b>the monkey talked, or (c)the scientist(s) confessed. Which was it?

The look on her face was priceless.

And AIDS is the most TOTALLY PREVENTABLE DISEASE. Just get help and don't continue with homosexual disgusting practices . . . and then don't come running to the general public when you contract AIDS and boo-hoo about getting it. I'm so fed up with these sodomites!

They lie, our liberal government accepts that and panders endlessly to them. They are probably fewer than 5% of the population (I guess 2-3%) yet they create as much havoc and consternation for a size much larger than that - 30-40%.

There is nothing ‘gay’ about them. They are dirty nasty unnatural group of perverts that just don’t like other people seeing them for what they are.

There are also new strains of gonorreah that are resistant to the usual antibiotics used to treat it.

It’s mostly affecting MSM (that’s liberal textbook speak for men who have sex with men . . .just in case you didn’t know).

You play, you pay ...sorry, homos.

Bacterial meningitis is not a homosexual disease, but it is an extremely dangerous one. The US Army just goes bananas whenever it has an outbreak (usually associated with nurseries with small children, who can show fewer symptoms but infect adults.)

“The most common symptoms of meningitis are headache and neck stiffness associated with fever, confusion or altered consciousness, vomiting, and an inability to tolerate light (photophobia) or loud noises (phonophobia). Children often exhibit only nonspecific symptoms, such as irritability and drowsiness. If a rash is present, it may indicate a particular cause of meningitis; for instance, meningitis caused by meningococcal bacteria may be accompanied by a characteristic rash.

“A lumbar (spinal cord) puncture diagnoses or excludes meningitis. A needle is inserted into the spinal canal to extract a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), that envelops the brain and spinal cord.”

My own experience with it was being on one of the larger Army posts when a few people came down with it. The entire post was sectored off, and medical people carrying suitcases full of gamma globulin began to vaccinate *everyone*. The gates were closed by armed guards and nobody was allowed in or out. And I mean *nobody*.

Some unhappy individuals had to leave their post sector on urgent business after being given their shot, and as often as not, they got a second shot. If you have never had a shot of gamma, it is very thick and takes a strong thumb to inject.

All of this is because during WWII, the US Army lost a LOT of soldiers to meningitis, and they are still ticked off about it.

It is cruel and irresponsible to be teaching American public school children to interact with one another like this...so they can be unhappy, get sick and die young, too. They lie, proposing to children two equal and wonderful choices - to marry someone of your own sex or to marry someone of the opposite sex. It’s so twisted and deceiptful.

I will never understand liberalism’s thirst for oppression, poverty, death and suffering. We do have the freedom to make decisions in our lives but we also must suffer or enjoy the consequences of those decisions.

Socialization of children should be about teaching them how to make responsible and loving choices in life. They should learn to analyze data, set goals for themselves and to think independently so they can come to conclusions on what to do and what not to do in life. With this mess of politically correct herd-think, a pack of elitist lies and manipulations, many children don’t stand much of a chance. For those children who have parents with a culture and brain, liberals diliberately and aggressively contradict and disrespect goodness.

This was known 20 years ago when I was in the actuarial department of a life insurance company. Homosexuals’ life expectancies are dramatically below average, even when AIDS deaths are factored out.

Interestingly, most of the decreased life expectance for smokers is not due to smoking-specific illness. Smoking is a “marker” for an array of lifestyle choices that, in the aggregate, shorten lifespans.

For male homosexuals it's dramatically shorter than female homosexuals, basically because of the way fluids are received.

Bacterial meningitis is not a homosexual disease, but it is an extremely dangerous one.

We were told in 1980 that GRIDS was not a "homosexual disease". But GRIDS (Gay Related Immune Deficiency Syndrome), even when renamed to HIV or AIDS, still was the result overwhelmingly of the filthy behavior of sodomites.

Now in NYC their filthy behavior is spreading BM.

There is nothing new under the sun:

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 recompense of their error which was meet." (Romans 1:27)

If King James English is not your cup of tea, here the last clause in contemporary English (New American Standard Bible (©1995)): :

...receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

Reader comments to some previous reports were disturbing. A lot of PC commenters shrieked "anti-gay discrimination" --against the news reporters!-- and falsely asserted that "homosexuality has nothing to do with this" and "anybody can get meningitis" (ignoring the articles' explanations that this disease in not your run-of-the-mill meningitis).

Radical homosexual agendists want desperately to pretend this is an "equal opportunity disease" --just like they tried to claim about AIDS (until evidence to the contrary made such claims universally laughable).
