Bill Bumpas - OneNewsNow - 7/28/2010 6:00:00 AM At last week's International AIDS Conference in Vienna, Austria, the Obama administration pledged the support of the U.S. in the global fight against AIDS. But one pro-family activist points out that an important aspect is missing from the undertaking.
Both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made prerecorded speeches at the close of the conference, committing the nation's dedication to fight the disease. However, one key factor seemed to be absent from the rhetoric, says a prominent pro-family activist.
"It's not a big mystery about what helps cause AIDS, and yet one key portion -- homosexual practice, homosexual sex -- is just off the table," notes Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). "And then we wonder why we can't keep this disease in check."
He compares this issue to the Wizard of Oz or the emperor who has no clothes. "There's a lot of talk about fighting AIDS, but they're not really serious about one of the key causes, which is homosexual behavior," he laments.
Instead, LaBarbera says, President Obama promotes it. He wishes the president would take serious action to combat the disease -- like shutting down homosexual bathhouses.
"Bathhouses are places where men can go practice this dangerous sexual activity in secret," the AFTAH president explains. "They can bring it home. If they're bisexual, they can bring it back to their wife or their girlfriend and be the conduit for AIDS into the heterosexual community."
Based on the fact that the Obama administration has avoided the issue, the pro-family activist concludes that it is politically incorrect to talk about the dangers of homosexual behavior.
