Skeptic Tank!

[The Skeptic Tank's President Fredric Rice forward: Here you will find the first part of one of the most bigoted and hate-filled statements of opinion by a Christian you're likely to read. It is, I fear, what Christianity has become of late in the United States. Much of what you will read is mouthed off at the majority of Christian alters across the country in what is becoming a part of the growing fascism being experienced in the United States. Here you will read the lies that Christian masters want their followers to believe. You will read of the demonization of innocent people; the justification for the death of innocent millions; and all of it summed-up as the will of the Christian gods, of course. That's step #1 in the short ladder to rounding up innocent people and exterminating them -- something Christianity has a long history of doing. As is always the policy at The Skeptic Tank, the text has not been altered or added to in any way. Those Christians who accuse me of fabricating these types of documents to try to make Christianity look bad will doubtless point out the fact that the document provided here contains no testable references whatsoever -- as if that means they may safely discard the fact of the text and the ideological basis of contemporary Christianity it describes. To those who suggest that, I say 'Open your eyes and take a little responsibility for your cult's bigotry and hatred. Unless you like what your religion has become.' - flr] -=- Begin text -=- DEATHSYLE: AIDS AND DIVINE JUDGEMENT "As a dog returns to his own vomit So a fool repeats his folly (Proverbs 26:11) {THIS IS A TWO-PART FILE ON AIDS; IT COMES FROM THE BOOK "POWER IN THE BLOOD" BY DAVID CHILTON. IT IS MEANT TO BE INFORMATIVE AND SOBERING AND TO CAUSE DISCUSSION IN THE MESSAGE AREAS. IT IS NOT AN ATTACK AGAINST GAY PEOPLE BUT DOES ACCURATELY PORTRAY THEIR SEXUAL ACTIVITIES AND DOES ACCURATELY PORTRAY GOD'S OPINION OF THOSE WHO DO SUCH} Bob Liichow Divine judgement is a touchy subject. Tempers soar in a dozen different directions the minute it's brought up. One irate letter-writer to Time summed up the attitude of many: Reagan and a number of other insist on referring to individuals infected with AIDS as innocent. This term carries the clear implication that the more than 30,000 humans who contracted the disease through homosexual activities or IV drug use were not innocent and died quite deservedly. It is a cruel injustice to these people and their surviving friends and loved ones. Are all AIDS victims really innocent? Are homosexuality and IV drug use merely alternate lifestyles that have no bearing on the fate of their practitioners? The answer should be obvious. Both homosexuals and illicit drug users are willfully and deliberately engaged in dangerous, destructive activities. Their case is radically different from that of the infant born with the AIDS virus, or the unsuspecting wife who contracts the infection from her adulterous husband, or the hemophiliac who receives a transfusion of tainted blood. In a very real sense, these victims are "innocent"' homosexuals and IV drug users are not. I have already pointed out that homosexuality is far and away the main source of the AIDS virus in this country. There are important reasons for this fact. It is no accident. The popular media version of homosexuality portrays it as little more than a same-sex alternative to normal heterosexuality. As it is actually practiced, however, homosexuality would seem to have more in common with torture and human sacrifice. I must warn the reader that the following discussion is terribly explicit. Homosexuality is not equal to heterosexuality. Homosexuality is evil. It is a perverse abomination against God. HOMOSEXUALITY AND DISEASE We must begin with a rather basic and obvious point about the difference between heterosexual and homosexual intercourse: God designed the vagina to be penetrated by a penis. The vaginal walls can stretch, and they are naturally lubricated during intercourse. The anus and rectum, in contrast, were not designed for sexual activity. They were created to excrete feces, period. The rectum is neither elastic nor lubricated; consequently, anal intercourse routinely tears the lining of the rectum and causes the anus to split and crack into bleeding fissures. These tears and fissures in turn become channels for HIV to pass into the bloodstream. Studies have show that "receptive anal intercourse was the specific sexual activity which correlated most strongly with reduced level of helper T-cells" and the consequent breakdown of the immune system. Repeated anal intercourse commonly results in other harmful conditions, such as colitis (or colonitis), an extremely painful inflammation of the mucous membrane of the colon; muscosal ulcers in the rectum; and Kobner's phenomenon, a psoriasis of the rectum, penis and scrotum. Anal intercourse also weakens the sphincter causing--to put it delicately--"fecal incontinence." The damaged muscle is just unable to hold it in, and the rectum dribbles with bloody feces. This involuntary ooze can leave deposits wherever the homosexual sits: on toilet seats, on benches in saunas and locker rooms, and anywhere else. If the fecal matter is contaminated with the AIDS virus, there is a possibility that others might be infected as well. Further, anal intercourse has be found-even apart from AIDS- to damage the body's immune system. Large quantities of sperm cells enter the bloodstream of the passive partner. (The thick walls, elasticity, and lubrication of the vagina prevent this from being a problem in normal sexual intercourse). After repeated cases of sodomy, the body develops antibodies to fight off the invading sperm. These antibodies then circulate throughout the bloodstream, suppressing the immune system itself. Moreover, sperm containing HIV is extremely efficient in communicating the disease: "Leukocytes in the seminal fluid carried the AIDS virus directly to the lymphoid organs of homosexual partners, thus achieving a highly efficient transfer of the infection to most lymphoid cells." Gene Antonio rightly remarks: "From a purely biological perspective sodomy, even apart from the transmission of AIDS, is an intrinsically unsanitary and pathological act. In addition, the practice of sodomy has been so readily transmitted and fostered among homosexuals. The passive partner is not the only one at risk of disease. Over time, the penis of the active partner can become chafed; various diseases may also cause sores to erupt on the penis. Infected blood and other fluids from the rectum can then enter the body through these abrasions, as well as through the urethra. But there is much more to homosexuality than anal intercourse. The practice of "fisting" is also common: the active partner shoves his hand and forearm up the other man's rectum and into the colon. Other instruments-dildoes, vibrators, and even cola bottles (which occasionally get stuck)-are rammed into the rectum; according to some reports, live rodents (such as gerbils) have been used for these purposes as well. Fisting only further aggravates the problem caused by sodomy: as one "Safe Sex" kit advises, "putting a hand or fist into someone's rectum or vaginas is very dangerous because the internal tissue can easily be torn. (Jeffery Haert comments on that phrasing: "There is every reason to doubt that heterosexual couples are "fisting. The word vagina is present in the above sentence only in order to protect the gay practice)." The same kit provided, along with 2 brochures, 2 condoms, and a tube of lubricant, a little latex square called a "rubber dam" to use for hygienic "rimming"-the practice of anilingus (about 2/3'rds of homosexual men regularly lick or insert their tongue into their partner's anus). Without the rubber dam-or it if breaks, slips or overflows--the anilingus ingests his partners fecal material. In a national study of homosexual practices, 17% of the homosexuals interviewed admitted eating their partner's bodily waste, or smearing it on themselves. 12% gave and received enemas as part of their "sexual" activity. To appreciate this fully one must understand the phenomenon known as "Gay Bowel Syndrome," made up of the following conditions, among others: 1. AMEBIASIS, a colon disease caused by parasites, causing abscesses, ulcers and diarrhea. 2. GIARDIASIS, ap parasitic bowel disease, again causing diarrhea and sometimes enteritis. 3. SHIGELLOSIS, a bacterial bowel disease, causing severe dysentery. 4. HEPATITIS A, a viral liver disease, which its victims can spread to others through food handling, and even through water splashed on toilet seats.
