World AIDS Day

Bill Muehlenberg’s commentary on issues of the day…

December 1 is World AIDS Day. This is a worthy cause no doubt. But in so much of the Western world AIDS has in effect been allowed to spread unchecked. Instead of taking normal routine actions to check the spread of a deadly infectious disease, most Western governments have in fact aided and abetted its lethal reach.

As I document in my new book, HIV/AIDS has become our first politically protected disease. By glamourizing, celebrating and officially promoting the number one reason for its spread in Australia and the West, we have taken a public health crisis and turned it into a PC campaign for the radical homosexual lobby.

In Australia male homosexual activity, along with intravenous drug use, is still the overwhelming means of spreading this disease. If we did all we could to reduce and discourage these two activities, Australia would have a very small problem indeed in this area.

But militant homosexuals along with limp-wristed officials, politicians and leaders have decided that instead of resisting this high-risk and dangerous lifestyle, they will do everything they can to see it turned into some kind of celebrated lifestyle.

This really is unconscionable. It is also a case of gross double standards. Consider another very high-risk and dangerous lifestyle: tobacco smoking. Governments here and overseas have taken drastic steps to discourage this dangerous behaviour.

They ban it from all sorts of places, disallow advertising for it, and basically make those who engage in it feel that they are endangering themselves and others – which they are. But when it comes to the dangerous homosexual lifestyle, political correctness reigns and politicians do not have the guts to take a stand for public health and safety.

In my book Strained Relations I spend a fair amount of time examining this issue in some detail, with copious documentation. Let me offer just three paragraphs here from that book:

“It may not be politically correct to say so, but if we seriously discouraged homosexual activity, we would greatly reduce the number of deaths due to AIDS in the Western world. Says one authority, ‘AIDS is a preventable, behavior-related disease. And we know what works in preventing the spread of AIDS. The virus is primarily spread by having sexual contact with an infected person or by sharing hypodermic needles or syringes with an infected person. Avoiding such behavior greatly reduces – indeed it almost entirely removes – the chances of becoming infected. Given the awful consequences of contracting the AIDS virus, it should be clear enough that public officials as well as members of the public health community have a basic responsibility to speak up for the true and time-honored, for things like restraint and responsibility on matters of sexual behavior.’

“Instead of claiming victim status, shouting homophobia, and blaming the rest of society, homosexuals need to take responsibility for their own actions. The simple truth is, if we want to see a real reduction in the number of AIDS cases, homosexuals will need to stop their high risk sexual practices.

“This is a truth which even some homosexuals have acknowledged. Consider this forthright comment by an American homosexual: ‘By continuing to engage in sexual practices that spread HIV, we are contributing to our own massacre. What is wrong with us? Are we so self-hating that we welcome death, that we would trade 10 minutes of pleasure for a lifetime of illness? . . . The gay men who are now contracting HIV through unsafe sex are not victims. They have consciously decided to disregard their own health and the welfare of their community’.”

Plenty of others have also presented a bit of sanity into this debate. One American writer offers six sensible recommendations which need to be carefully considered. I am quite happy to present them here:

ACKNOWLEDGE HIGH RISK ‘GAY’ SEX: Recognize HIV/AIDS as a predominantly “gay disease” in the USA (as some LGBT leaders like Matt Foreman have admitted) — linked to male homosexual behavior (and IV drug abuse — another high-risk behavior). Gay writer Jack Hart has called gay male sex practices like anal sex “highly efficient ways of transmitting disease.”

TEACH KIDS REAL RISKS IN THE CLASSROOM: Stop pretending that all lifestyles are at equal risk for AIDS — because HIV is NOT behaviorally — or lifestyle-neutral. Instead, teach students in school health classes the DOCUMENTED REALITY that certain behaviors, especially male homosexual sex, are especially high-risk for contracting HIV (and other STDs like hepatitis). See this September 2011 CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) fact sheet, which points out: “MSM [men who have sex with men] account for more than half of all new HIV infections in the United States each year (61%, or an estimated 29,300 infections).”

RESTIGMATIZE DANGEROUS BEHAVIORS: In the wider culture and especially among youth, re-stigmatize anal sex and other (predominantly) homosexual acts (e.g., “rimming,” homosexual slang for oral-anus perversion). If other behaviors were as dangerous as homosexual male sex, there would be well-funded PR campaigns and government mobilizations to curtail them. Political Correctness is no excuse for failing to educate against bad and harmful behaviors.

CLOSE DOWN GAY BATHHOUSES: Using whatever means and laws necessary, shut down all “gay” bathhouses (e.g., Steamworks in Chicago, and Flex Baths in Cleveland). These anonymous sex clubs facilitate unnatural and deviant, disease-spreading sex. Moreover, because they are used by bisexual men and those on the “down low” (homosexuality-practicing men who do not identify as “gay”), bathhouses help spread AIDS to innocent women. For the record, AFTAH also supports citizen action against heterosexual swinger clubs as well as strip clubs and pornographic video stores, which promote promiscuity and undermine natural marriage.

EQUALIZE DISEASE SPENDING: Work toward equalizing (taxpayer) federal/government spending on HIV/AIDS vis-a-vis other serious, life-threatening diseases. As the non-partisan Fair Foundation has demonstrated, AIDS receives vastly disproportionate federal research funding per death compared to other diseases like Alzheimer’s. There is no valid reason why HIV should receive such privileged taxpayer funding — especially since it is driven by high-risk behaviors long-considered immoral.

STOP BIGOTED “HOMOPHOBIA” PROPAGANDA: Stop the highly politicized “anti-homophobia” rhetoric emanating from government agencies like the CDC — which should be focused on eradicating disease, not bashing adherents of Judeo-Christian or Muslim morality. “Homophobia” is a contrived smear term used to denigrate faith-based opposition to homosexuality. It is counter-productive folly to promote the normalcy of homosexual behavior — e.g., through offensive, indecent public ad campaigns — in the name of “safer sex.”

Yes quite right. We are committing sexual suicide, and until we start embracing some mental and moral clarity on these issues, things will only get far worse. We owe it to our nation, our families, our children and our selves to say no to this destructive, narcissistic and selfish lifestyle, and return to some common sense.
