abcNews ^ | Sept 28, 2012 | Katie Moisse

Posted on 09/30/2012 6:53:11 AM PDT by fwdude

New York City health officials are investigating an outbreak of meningitis among HIV-positive men, one of whom has died while another remains in critical condition.

“Men experiencing high fever, headache, stiff neck and rash are advised to immediately contact their health care providers,” the health department said in a statement Thursday, adding that all four men who have contracted the disease are gay or have had sex with men.

Could this be the next/final warning by God or God's nature to these reprobates that their behavior is abominable? And as mobile and promiscuous as these sodomites are, does anyone believe that this WON'T spread like wildfire to homosexuals nationwide?

There should be Surgeon General warnings against homosexuality. Any behavior that shortens a lifespan by 20-30 years is dangerous and should be discouraged by our health providers.

Also ironic that leftists are big on evolution yet say there’s a “gay gene.”
Wouldn’t natural selection kill off anything that stopped the continuation of
the species?

Read the full article. Apparently, with this type:
"The disease is spread by 'prolonged close contact with nose or throat discharges from an infected person,' the health department said, describing prolonged contact as 'living in the same household' or 'intimate activities' such as kissing and sexual contact."

Not to mention the dangers of ingesting fecal matter which is part of the homosexual ‘love ‘ ritual.

If it’s in New york it’s already spread around the globe, they are too mobile and too promiscuous but you will never see it reported that way.

“Could this be the next/final warning by God or God’s nature to these reprobates that their behavior is abominable?”

It is heading that way. Our new healthcare law (along with existing laws) almost assures us that antibiotic research is about over.

But those little buggers are not done, they’re very close to mutating their way out of all of our weapons. Once that is done, it’s game over. People will simply have a choice - be promiscuous, or live.

We laugh at the Muslims about the way they grab young girls and tie them down to one guy - maybe so, now. But something close to that (maybe not as extreme) will be necessary for our society to survive, once the antibiotics are washed up.

Did you read the article? Aside from the toilet seat...

The disease is spread by “prolonged close contact with nose or throat discharges from an infected person,” the health department said, describing prolonged contact as “living in the same household” or “intimate activities” such as kissing and sexual contact. “

Trust me my step son was a flamboyant gay with HIV and if one of his circle of friends had any kind of bug they all did.

Disgusting hygene and sexual behavior.

Relating my own experience, a former boss (boss's son, actually, but it was a family business) was absolutely enamored by New York City. He even scheduled a company "team building" trip there for about 4 days.

The son was always a little "metrosexual" on the fashion side, and I never thought any thing of is. Later, he came out fully when he brought his "boyfriend" into the office. That was near the of the end of my career there.

LOVING NY is now a pretty definitive litmus test for queerness, in my book.

At least they’re not indulging in cigarettes, salt and sodas over 16 ounces. That could create some really serious health problems.

It’s hit here in schools in middle TN this week all over with a number of cases.

One small child in Mt Juliet contracted it and died within 24 hours at Vanderbilt Childrens

how horrifying to lose one so quick and without warning over what started just as a headache and fever

puts the fear of God..metaphorically..in wifey and I...you realize once again what fleeting gifts they can be

no wonder they spoke so much of the melancholy in the old days

Excellent point. A Big Gulp vs behavior which almost assures the risk of terminal disease-and what do the cultural marxists go after?

Not to mention the sub-culture of sodomites which actively seeks to get HIV/AIDS, they look for “gifters”-men who have it, so they can deliberately get it from them.

On the contrary, Muslim men are allowed four wives, and any of those can be temporary "marriages" to satisfy their lusts. But I understand your point.

They’ve already got severely compromised immunity, and with HIV they’re probably taking drugs that reduce the immunity to an even greater extent. No mystery here.

According to that logic, there oughtn't to be any hereditarily transmitted conditions which, e.g., prevent the stricken from attaining, say, puberty - but there are.

Neisseria Meningitidis is a common bacterium that is part of the natural flora of up to 35% of the population, depending on where, and how you live. It's heterotrophic, which means that it relies on a 'host' for nutrition, reproduction, etc. It may be colonizing your nose right now, and you would never know it unless you asked your doctor to do a nasal swab/culture for it.
You could be walking around, perfectly healthy, and sneeze in the presence of someone whose immune system is somehow compromised, and they will get sick. HIV, by definition, compromises the immune system. If your body has not seen it before, N. Menigitidis is an extremely virulent, lethal bug. Even though this is a common critter in the community, even one case of N. Meningitidis illness is considered a public health emergency. N.Meningitidis bacteremia kills fast; without immediate treatment it is uniformly fatal. With treatment, it's a coin toss. This shit is no joke.

U.S. Gay Men’s Astonishing HIV/STD Rates
http://www.bilerico.com/2010/03/us_gay_mens_astonishing_hivstd_rates.php

At the National STD Prevention Conference on Wednesday, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) released some astonishing data regarding rates of infection among MSM (Men who have Sex with Men).

The data indicate that rates of HIV infection among gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) are more than 44 times higher than rates among heterosexual men and more than 40 times higher than women. Rates of syphilis, an STD that can facilitate HIV infection and, if left untreated, may lead to sight loss and severe damage to the nervous system, are reported to be more than 46 times higher among gay men and other MSM than among heterosexual men and more than 71 times higher than among women. (Full presser here).

No, no, no! That’s the action that causes the symptom. The very first “symptom” is being “butt-hurt.”

There’s a lot of that going on these days.
