Why I, as a gay man, think this is morally wrong

Aug 4, 2016 by

by Andrew Pierce, Mailonline: At the end of a pre-release screening of an award-winning film about the Aids epidemic in San Francisco in the 1980s, there was a stunned silence. It was only broken by a few muffled sobs. The movie, We Were Here, featured the stories of people who watched their friends and lovers suffer agonising deaths. They had contracted Aids after being infected by the HIV virus. In total, about half of the Californian city’s gay male population were infected and more than...

High Court rules in favour of NHS providing ‘HIV prevention drug’ but big questions remain

Aug 3, 2016 by

by Peter Saunders, Christian Medical Comment: The High Court has today ruled that the NHS in England can fund a drug that can reduce the chance of people catching HIV whilst engaging in high-risk sexual activities. NHS England had previously argued that local councils should provide PrEP (‘pre-exposure prophylaxis’) as ‘health prevention’ is their responsibility.

It’s official: sexism, racism, poverty and homophobia spread AIDS. Not just sex.

Aug 1, 2016 by

by Matthew Hanley, MercatorNet: What if I told you that smoking two packs a day doesn’t increase your risk of lung cancer? That a highly sedentary lifestyle doesn’t lead to various adverse outcomes? Surely you’d deride me. Conclude I’m off my rocker. Anti-science. A reactionary. Would it be better if I qualified it to say that these behaviors are not the only causes for these conditions? Maybe, I guess, a little. But when the point is to minimize their importance as main risk factors, the...

The History of the Syndemic of AIDS

Jun 25, 2016 by

by Dale O’Leary: HIV/AIDS is no longer a major concern for the public in the US. It doesn’t even make the list, but the epidemic rolls on. In 2014 the CDC estimated that 36,138 men were newly infected with HIV. Of these 30,635 (83%) were gay men or the men who had sex with men (MSM).[1] While new infections in other categories have been declining, the category MSM has been increasing. Why? Because the Risk Reduction strategy adopted to fight the epidemic was guided by the political...

CDC Stats reveal single-largest threat to homosexual life comes from: other homosexuals

Jun 18, 2016 by

by Gerard M Nadal, LifeSite: Since the left is now engaged in an all-out effort to blame Christianity for the Orlando massacre, actually committed by a homosexual, muslim, ISIS, jihadi, then a decent respect for the truth is in order. Christians have not created a climate of danger for homosexuals. If anything, the following CDC data clearly indicates where the single-largest threat to homosexual life comes from: other homosexuals (though under ISIS, that’s about to change). Thirty-five...
