AFTHA’s “Porno Pete” LaBarbera: The Government Should Stop Pushing Condoms And Let Them All Die Of AIDS

“The question is, if we know what behavior is causing these diseases, why don’t we encourage people not to practice the behaviors? Homosexuality, especially among men, is vastly overrepresented in HIV cases, so the government should be taking steps to discourage men and boys from practicing homosexual behavior.  We’re in a situation now where the government is encouraging groups to pass out condoms at homosexual clubs, as if that’s going to stop the disease. I mean, basically, we’ve done everything but publicly discourage men from practicing homosexuality. Instead the CDC goes around talking about stigma and ‘homophobia.’ This is really a politically protected class of disease because of its association. – American’s for Truth About Homosexuality’s hate group leader “Porno Pete” Peter LaBarbera, quoted by the AFA newsite OneNewsNow.

 

Too bad they weren’t pushing condoms when you were conceived you evil fucking douchebag.

19 Kids and Hating: TLC’s Duggar Clan To Take Part in FRC Hate Group’s “Value Bus Tour”

 

DUGGARS

Anti-gay hate group the Family Research Council (FRC) announced Wednesday that the entire Duggar family, of the irresponsible TLC reality TV series “19 Kids and Counting,” will take part in the FRC’s “Value Bus Tour” that will travel across Virginia for three days next week to mobilize voters in support of virulently homophobic Ken Cuccinelli for governor.

“We are excited to travel across Virginia and express our enthusiastic support for Ken Cuccinelli for governor and E.W. Jackson for lieutenant governor. Both of these men are deeply concerned about the issues impacting the family and our broader culture,” says Josh Duggar, the eldest of the reality show family’s children and recently appointed executive director of FRC.

The right-wing conservative Christian FRC, was classified in 2010 as an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and is considered by many to be one of the country’s most fervently anti-gay organizations in America but that has not stopped The Learning Channel from continuing to follow the family and eldest son Josh.  TLC continues to film and air the program thus legitimatizing one of the most vile anti-gay organizations in America.

The “Value Bus Tour” kicks off on Monday following this weekend’s annual “Values Voters Summit” HATERPOLOZZA sponsored by FRC in Washington, D.C.,  Appearing will be hard right wing extremists guest speakers including: Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and former Senator and failed presidential hopeful Rick Santorum (R- PA). The Duggar Family is also listed on the group of confirmed speakers.

TLC is part of Discovery Communications.  Contact them now and tell them to pull the plug on the Duggars and their family of hate.

How Homophobia May Actually Increases HIV Cases In Gay Men

Have you ever wondered what some of the long ranged and potentially harmful side effects of a country’s homophobia? Well one study has found some rather shocking results. The study, Access to HIV Prevention and Treatment for Men Who Have Sex with Men done by the medical and mental professionals of The Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) found that situations like rate of homophobic perceptions and income are directly correlated to the number of HIV cases seen in sexually active gay men.

As you can see in the graph below, it shows that gay men from low income countries that have a high amount of homophobia as well as a lack of access to preventative measures such as condoms, testing, and treatments are at a significantly higher chances on contracting HIV.

The study does note that a high amountasd of participants that resided in low income countries expressed fear of exposure of their sexuality and that homophobia which lead to them not buying and preparing things such as lubricant and condoms that would help protect them against HIV and other diseases that can be transmitted through sexual intercourse. Here’s a further and more detailed summary of the study’s findings:

In summary, the study findings underscore the need to improve global efforts to ensure that gay men and other MSM have access to basic HIV prevention and treatment services. Structural, community/interpersonal, and individual barriers and facilitators to service access must be addressed at multiple levels; interventions must both disrupt the negative effects of barriers and support the protective effects of facilitators. When considering PrEP implementation, study findings indicate an urgent need for the dissemination of more and better information regarding HIV prevention strategies generally and PrEP in particular.

From the narratives of MSM who participated in this study, it is clear that local and global advocacy efforts are needed to create enabling sociopolitical environments that will increase access to HIV-related services and improve MSM health overall. Securing the human rights of MSM is essential to HIV prevention and treatment strategies, new and old.

These barriers, either through society or anti-gay laws undoubtedly and justifiably perceived as homophobia were also found to cause these overall feelings with higher rates of HIV cases:

Fear
Poor self-worth
Depression
Suicide
Anxiety
Substance abuse
Delay/avoidance of services
Treatment interruption

So the next time someone say being anti-gay doesn’t have ramifications this study proves the contrary. And even though this is only one very detailed piece of evidence, the findings are hard to dispute. Homophobia has much more powerful and potentially damaging consequences than previously known.
