Sexually Transmitted Infections Increase HIV Risk for Homosexual Men

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

Excerpted from Sexually Transmitted Infections Increase HIV Risk for Gay Men, by Michael Carter, published August 23, 2006, on

Certain sexually transmitted infections in the anus increase the risk of gay men becoming infected with HIV, according to research conducted in Sydney and presented to the Sixteenth International AIDS Conference in Toronto last week. In a separate study, the same team of investigators also found that gay men who were infected with herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) were at a greater of risk of becoming infected with HIV.

There is epidemiological evidence suggesting a connection between sexually transmitted infections and the risk of HIV infection. It is therefore thought that preventing sexually transmitted infections could would also help to reduce the number of new HIV infections. Few studies have looked at the connection between sexually transmitted infections and the risk of becoming HIV-positive in gay men. Investigators from the Health in Men (HIM) study in Sydney, Australia, therefore conducted a prospective study involving over 1,400 HIV-negative gay men.

HRC’s “Out in Scripture” for Sept 17: The Heart of Isaiah, the Heterosexual Prophet

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

This is the second installment in our series of responses to “Out in Scripture,” Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) attempt to do the impossible: re-interpret the Bible to be in support of homosexual behavior (sin).

By Sonja Dalton

The primary text for the Sept 17 HRC’s Out in Scripture Commentary is Isaiah 50:4-9a:

The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught. The Lord God has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward. I gave my back to those who strike, and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard; I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting.

Who was this one called to minister to the weary and to warn the unfaithful? Was he a homosexual? The “Out in Scripture” commentary claims, “Isaiah 50:4-9a offers the testimony of one who knows herself to be called by God.” Is that true?

No, certainly not.

This book of prophecy is the inspired testimony of the bearded male prophet, Isaiah, to a rebellious Judah – of whom he says in chapter 1:

If the LORD of hosts had not left us a few survivors, we should have become like Sodom and become like Gomorrah. Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Give ear to the teaching of our God, you people of Gomorrah!… [God Himself speaking:

“I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly…

When you spread out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you;

even though you make many prayers, I will not listen…

So, in likening the rebellious character of Judah to the rampant homosexuality in Sodom and Gomorrah, the prophet Isaiah (like all of God’s prophets, apostles, and teachers) affirmed God’s design for human sexuality (faithful marriage) and overtly condemned homosexual practice.

Corporate America Is Competing to Promote Homosexuality

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

It used to be American leftists and peaceniks who crusaded against Big Business. Now it’s moral-minded and largely Christian conservatives–who have watched one Fortune 500 company after another embrace pro-homosexual advocacy, dressed up as “diversity.”

While the pro-family movement focused on doing battle against the homosexual lobby in Washington, D.C., and state capitals, “gay” activists won over corporations, largely through internal activism within each company. Kodak, a leading national sponsor of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) went heavily into homosexual advocacy after a top female executive declared her lesbianism to fellow execs. Kodak is among the 138 companies that received a 100% score on the “Corporate Equality Index” (read: Pro-Homosexuality Index) of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s leading “gay” lobby group.

The battle to restore corporate neutrality on the homosexual issue will be a long and tough one, but it must be fought. People of faith inside companies can refuse to participate in pro-homosexual, one-sided “tolerance” sessions that undercut their moral beliefs. Or at least, they can request that the pro-family perspective on the issue be represented in the name of diversity. And they must work closely with outside family advocates to fight against corporate grants to homosexual groups like HRC that have a well-earned reputation for radicalism and bigotry–e.g., supporting taxpayer-funded transsexual “sex-change” operations and demonizing religious people and groups opposed to homosexuality.

You may get hassled or even punished along the way for standing for truth, but Christ said, “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also” (John 15:20).  If you need some help sharing the Gospel with a homosexual co-worker, try reading this short, helpful paper by former lesbian Yvette Schneider, “How Christians Can Talk to Homosexuals.”

The pendulum is swinging toward a politically correct corporate embrace of immoral and unhealthy sexual behavior, dressed up as an “orientation.” It will swing back toward normalcy in the years ahead. –– Peter LaBarbera

The following is excerpted from New Report Shows Corporate America Competing to Be the Most GLBT-Friendly, published Sept 19, 2006, by the homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign:

The Human Rights Campaign today released a report showing that a record number of the largest U.S. companies are increasingly competing to expand benefits and protections for their gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees and consumers. This year’s report, the Human Rights Campaign’s fifth annual Corporate Equality Index, showed an unprecedented 138 major U.S. companies earned the top rating of 100 percent.

Sentencing for Man who Ran over Cabbie – 9/20

Excerpted from Chicago Gay AIDS Activist Sentenced To Prison For Cabbie Murder, published Sept 20, 2006, by the pro-homosexuality 365Gay:

One witness, Susan Lichtman, told the court that she saw the two fighting on the street in front of the cab. She testified that one of the men, who she identified as Jackson, walk to the cab, get in, and after a few moments ” he backed the cab up about a half a car length, then Mr. Jackson turned the front wheel, put it in gear and into drive. He accelerated the cab, driving into Mr. Paryani.”

Paryani, 61, who emigrated from Pakistan in 1971, was a U.S. citizen and had been driving cabs for more than 20 years, according to friends and family.

He suffered multiple rib fractures, heart lacerations and head wounds and died in hospital.

Excerpted from Man Who Killed Cabbie Gets Prison, by Brendan McCarthy, published Sept 20, 2006, in The Chicago Tribune:

Cook County Criminal Court Judge James Schreier said that Jackson’s driving back and forth over Paryani’s body was a “salient factor in this case.

“What matter of man would drive over another human being three times?” Schreier said…

Jackson, who is HIV positive, is awaiting trial on a misdemeanor charge of reckless assault for allegedly spitting on a nurse at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove in April 2005.

He also is awaiting trial on a misdemeanor charge for aggravated assault for allegedly having sexual contact with inmates in the DuPage County Jail without disclosing his HIV status.

Lawrence Keitz Pleads Guilty to E-Threat against IFI

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

From Lawrence Keitz Pleads Guilty to E-Threat against IFI, by Peter LaBarbera, published Sept 21, 2006, by Illinois Family Institute:

Homosexual Lawrence Keitz of Chicago pled guilty yesterday to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from his 2005 e-mail threat against Illinos Family Institute in which he vowed to “burn every one of your [g-d] damned churches down” and “fight till my last breath to see that you people are destroyed.”

Under a plea agreement, Keitz received “court supervision” for the crime, which allows him to escape jail time for the offense–a Class C misdemeanor carrying a maximum 30-day jail sentence–provided he does not engage in similar harassing behaviors in the next year.

Under the agreement approved by Dupage County Judge Cary B. Pierce, Keitz agreed to stay away from IFI’s offices and staff in Glen Ellyn, pay a fine and write a letter of apology to Illinois Family Institute within 60 days. If he does not repeat the threats, ultimately he will have the opportunity to have the record of his guilty plea expunged so that he has no permanent criminal record.

Keitz, an employee of the PappaGeorge/Haymes Ltd. architectual firm in Chicago, used his work e-mail address to send the following threatening note to IFI on July 13, 2005 (this is cleaned up for publication; our edits are in brackets; astericks were his):

—–Original Message—–
From: Lawrence Keitz [mailto:[email protected]]
Posted At: Wednesday, July 13, 2005 12:55 PM Posted To:
[email protected]

Conversation: Leave us the F**k alone
Subject: Leave us the F**k alone

I am a gay citizen of this country.

You get the f**k out of my countery [sic] and leave me alone or I will burn every one of your [g-d] damned churches down. Shove your [g-d] up your own [a–]! I will fight till my last breath to see that you people are destroyed. F**k off!

Assistant States Attorney Jeff Muntz, who prosecuted the case, said that a previous charge against Keitz for “harassment by electronic communication” had been dropped.

Pray for Keitz
Representing Illinois Family Institute at the hearing, I introduced myself to Keitz, shook his hand and told him that we do not hate him.

Keitz, a white male wearing a pony tail who appeared to be in his late 20’s, replied that it was “hard to tell” from IFI’s website.

Please pray for Lawrence Keitz and all the pro-homosexual activists who regularly attack IFI and other family groups–sometimes viciously or even illegally (as in this case). Because we oppose homosexuality as a matter of principle and reject “gayness” as a core identity, they label us as “haters,” and, strangely, justify their ugly attacks by citing our policies and beliefs.

List of Gay Friendly Companies Continues to Grow

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

Excerpted from List of GayFriendly Companies Continues to Grow, published Sept 21, 2006, by Agape Press:

The 2006 Corporate Equality Index’s 138-member list includes perennial representatives like IBM, Levi-Strauss, Nike, and even Ford Motor Company. It measures benefits and protections to “gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender” employees and customers, including promises against discrimination. The jump from a list of 101 last year to 138 this year is being called a reflection of several culture trends. (See related article on WorldNetDaily)

Peter LaBarbera is president of Americans for Truth, a group that monitors the homosexual agenda throughout American culture. He contends that the campaigns to portray homosexuals and transgenders as a minority — and to represent them as large contributors to corporate America’s bottom line — has been successful…
