akenaton BS: Rapist Catholic Priests (51* d) RE: BS: Rapist Catholic Priests 21 Oct 17

Joe, who am I to say homosexuality is "wrong"/ I suppose it has been with us since time immoral, but there is a mass of evidence which proves that it is "harmful" and my view is that it should not be promoted, as it is today, as "just another lifestyle". When I started getting involved in these discussions, the epidemic of STD amongst male homosexuals was running at under 20% of new infections of HIV and Syphilis, which in itself is a gross over representation, as male homosexuals make up only 1% of the population
Now, new infections of these diseases are running at between 70 and 80%. This is an extremely serious problem and one which is not being dealt with because "liberals" declare that any targeted programme of testing and contact tracing would be discriminatory in nature.
What skewed logic that is!!
Some say that "promiscuity is the problem, not homosexuality", but this argument simply does not stack up, as sections of the heterosexual community are perfectly capable of behaving promiscuously, yet infection rates amongst heterosexuals are miniscule and nowhere near epidemic proportions.

However, there is a little ray of hope on the horizon, as UK health authorities are at last suggesting that NHS patients should be asked to declare their sexual orientation when attending their GPs on routine visits ...I believe that this was first mooted by some activist groups and is probably a precursor to compulsory testing and contact tracing, should members of "At risk groups"{MSM) refuse the offer of tests for HIV or Syphilis.
Its all very well to spout of about individual rights on this forum, but thousands of mainly young people are having their lives affected by a serious epidemic, stopping which transcends individual rights.
