SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- More than 75,000 people in New York City are known to be living with AIDS or are infected with the virus that causes the disease, health researchers reported.
The finding puts the prevalence of the deadly epidemic in the city at levels usually seen in Third World nations.
"Overall, about 1 percent of the total population of New York City is living with human immunodeficiency virus," said Denis Nash, an epidemiologist with the Center for Urban Epidemiologic Studies, part of the New York Academy of Medicine.
In a report at the 11th Annual Retrovirus Conference, Nash said the new figures, which were developed after the state of New York required health officials to report HIV cases, also show:
The sodomy lobby will do NOTHING to protect their own, for they must concede that promiscuity is wrong if sane preventative measures are to be taken. Many homosexuals even actively seek infected partners! All they want is the magic cure. There is no limit to the wickedness of unregenerate man: "All they that hate Me, love death" - Prov. 8:36
Isn't DEATH God's righteous judgement on all sin?... and all sinners... for all have sinned...
Rom.5: 12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam‚Äôs transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. " 15But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many."
There ARE no innocent deaths, period.
Just THE INNOCENT ONE who died for the sin of the world, praise God!
A righteous judgement? On the people who contracted the disease from transfusions, before theblood supply was safe? One the women who cought it from their husbands? on the babies who got it from there mothers? on the babies who are orphaned by it? on most of africa? Are you crazy?
I'm not sure that I would refer to AIDS and such things as "God's righteous judgments," if that means that God deliberately interferes in order to punish people.
God created the world to function in a particular way. It's good for us to follow that way, it's bad if we go against it.
If we go against the natural way that God has planned, then things will go disastrously wrong, all without God intervening.
Another example of going against God's way is the refusal by married people in many countries to have children. This is not what God wants (Gen. 1.28), but he will not reach down in retribution. The punishment will come in the form of the social and economic disruption caused by having few young people.
