YOU CAN'T MAINSTREAM SODOMY AND FIGHT AIDS AT THE SAME TIME:

A Real Problem, Here (NY Times, 4/20/09)

The AIDS epidemic is spreading faster than previously thought, even as the American public’s concern about it declines. That dangerous disconnect underscores the urgency of a new campaign announced by the Obama administration to combat complacency about the disease and its potential to strike the unwary.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that in 2006, 56,000 people around the country were newly infected with H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS, a hefty boost from previous estimates of 40,000.

Meanwhile, surveys by the Kaiser Family Foundation show a sharp drop in public interest or concern.


If you're serious about attacking an infectious disease you discourage people from contact with the disease vector and risky behavior, rather than encourage them.
