It has targeted gay and bisexual men, and nobody knows exactly why.


I’ll take people who exchange insane amounts of bodily fluids with lots of risky strangers for 100 Alex.

Bacterial Meningitis is transmissible thru other than sexual contact. IF enough of them get it, it can start to spread beyond their groups.

That’s true I guess. I was just harping on the distinction between gay and bisexual...because isn’t a bisexual gay? Or at least they perform gay sex acts. A comedian (Andrew Dice Clay?) had a bit about it...’Either you do @#$% or you don’t #$%^’...there is no in between.

But i get yor point, about how the heterosexual population is exposed to these diseases.

Most gay males (especially under 35) are mental nutcases, and horny as sin. A population of them will likely end up with 100% contraction of something knowing full well that this is what will happen. They simply are too willing to do whatever it takes to get off.

And they want us to spend money to make it “safer” for them to be retarded? Nope!

They’ve been brainwashed by the triad of media/education/gov’t that they have a “human right” to engage in unhealthy sexual behaviors that will greatly shorten their life span. And all the negative consequences that result are somehow someone else’s fault.

Stars & Strips Forever, Thanks for the reference in your response to reaganut1 which I copied below in case anyone missed it. A look in the Book always gives us the way to live and what happens when we stray from the “straight” and narrow. We are all sinners saved by grace. The homosexual lifestyle is right up there with gossiping, lying, horoscope reading, etc. A sin is a sin and our nation is suffering from our discretions.


To: reaganaut1
“The comments are interesting — lots of gay men complaining that their “lifestyle” is being stigmatized. Sodomy and promiscuity are condemned for a reason.”

PROVERBS 5:12-13

In the end you will groan in anguish
when disease consumes your body.
12 You will say, “How I hated discipline!
If only I had not ignored all the warnings!
13 Oh, why didn’t I listen to my teachers?
Why didn’t I pay attention to my instructors?

It’s 1981 all over again. We have another ‘doctor’ in the article calling infection “exposure”, as if the disease is simply floating about in the open air and no one can be expected to avoid it. These people are truly sick.

Romans 1:26-27
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

I was doing some research recently on syphilis (to satisfy my curiosity...I don't have it!) and came upon a page of the CDC's website.This page said that two-thirds of syphilis cases diagnosed in the country are in homosexual men.

But we're assured by Osama Obama & Pals that "it's just a different kind of love".

Because repeated thrusting upward into the exit chute, where there are lots of tiny capillaries pointing downward that were never designed to handle upward friction, pushes infectious agents into the bloodstream.

That this infection seems to be predominant among gay men is probably just a weird coincidence like AIDS. The solution is to pass laws prohibiting the conduct of epidemiological investigations or reporting so that we don’t suspect misconduct on their part, because, after all, it couldn’t possibly be related to their lifestyle.

Perhaps it should dawn on some of these guys that sticking an open tunnel to your body into the evacuation place of another is not a good idea. Those systems are designed to move one way, not two ways.

The thought of taking someone’s feces and shoving it up the pee hole just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

Yep. Exposure to body fluids, especially saliva. According to the CDC article you can also get Listeria monocytogenes by eating contaminated food. Lovely.

Way back in my undergraduate Microbiology program we had a mandatory class taught by a statistician on the mathematics of epidemics. Being horny little buggers we were very attentive when the topic came around to STDs. Simply put, promiscuity kills, and however bad you think the chances are, they're worse.

This is not about innocent victims of disease. This is aout mental illness. Being gay is really about being sexually compulsive. Instead of trying to justify their life style, gays need to take a look at why they cannot grow up an exercise some restraint.

Public school personnel has to stop lying to children about sodomy being just like herterosexual sex. It’s not healthy.
It is not a behavior to be promoted to other people’s children.

The real disease is sexual addiction. Anyone who continues a behavior despite it being potentially harmful to themselves or others, is considered an addict. Sexual addiction is very harmful and hurtful to individuals, and those close to them. I don’t judge others, but as an experienced adult I have no doubt that EVERYTHING in the bible is true in a very practical sense. The eventual result of sexual addictions is endlessly looking for the next sexual fix, never being satisfied, sexual dysfunction, and disease, being your entire purpose in life. In other words, hell. Your loving Father never wanted that for you. Stay away from porno guys. IT DESTROYS MARRIAGES, and families.

I've been saying for years that, even if they find a cure for HIV, that other diseases will come along faster than cures can be found.

The homosexual lifestyle is tailor-made for propagating disease. Anal sex is very effective in transmitting diseases that are poorly transmitted by any other means. Rampant promiscuity means that an infected person will have sexual contact with dozens, perhaps hundreds, of others within the year, passing diseases through the homosexual population at an exponential rate.

” It has targeted gay and bisexual men,...”

Bacterial meningitis doesn't just target gay men. It can and **will** infect co-workers, family members, and others that these gays may meet in the community.

Unfortunately, the communicable diseases they carry like TB and meningitis will take down a lot of innocents with them.

Unfortunately, HIV infected homosexuals ( BECAUSE OF THEIR HIGHLY PROMISCUOUS SEXUAL LIFESTYLE) are far more likely than other immune deficient individuals, to be WALKING PETRI DISHES OF COMMUNICABLE DISEASES!

I have been preaching this for year. (Yeah! I am shouting. )
