CDC_AIDS_2010_homosexualTUPELO, Miss.—For years, society has been told that HIV and AIDS are no longer gay diseases. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control, however, provides telling evidence that homosexual men are at a much greater risk for HIV/AIDS and other diseases.

According to the CDC report released at the end of September to coincide with “National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day,” just 2 percent of the population is made up of gay or bisexual men, yet they accounted for 63 percent of all newly diagnosed HIV/AIDS cases in 2010. That same year, young gay and bisexual men (aged 13-24) accounted for 72 percent of new HIV infections in this age group and nearly a third of new infections among gay and bisexual men as a whole.

“This CDC report should truly be a strong wake-up call for our society,” said American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) President Tim Wildmon. “The reality is that alongside moral reasons, homosexuality is a dangerous health risk, and we would be doing a grave disservice to our fellow Americans if we did not speak out on these risks. Consider, for example, dangerous drug use, which also is a risk factor for HIV and AIDS. Society does not advocate this drug use, and neither should society promote, celebrate or give special protection to homosexuality, which is a confirmed health risk. We love people too much not to tell them the truth about potentially harmful and destructive behavior.”

Based on recent studies, the CDC also estimated that about 18 percent of all homosexual men are infected with HIV, with more than a third of those unaware they have the virus.

According to LifeSiteNews.com, “The CDC report comes on the heels of a September 23 report by Public Health England revealing similar problems in the United Kingdom. One out of every 34 gay men in the U.K. is HIV-positive, and in London, the number rises to one-in-twelve.”

The CDC also reports that men who engage in anal sex, already risky for the spread of HIV, are 17 times more likely to contract anal cancer, which kills about 40 percent of its victims within five years.

    People keep saying that homosexual “orientation” (i.e., same-sex attraction) doesn’t inherently cause people to catch diseases. That’s correct as far as it goes, but it’s missing a key concept: that the reckless behavior directly led to by this attraction, especially in men, *does* cause people to catch diseases — and does so heavily.
