Janet Parks suggests that we be fully informed in the Sept. 28 Sentinel. Alright, providing you will also be fully informed. How? Google "Kaposi's Sarcoma" and choose images. Look at the pictures of HIV sufferers.
On page 3 two days after the city council report there was a picture of Phil Saviano, who was in need of a kidney transplant. He suffered from HIV from being abused by a priest, as had many other contacts with similar molestations. Be informed, AIDS is caused by homosexuals and bisexuals.
Some time ago a nurse's family was suing for the death of their daughter, a nurse who had been scratched by a hypodermic needle with which she had injected medication into an AIDS patient and died from it. Pay particular attention to the eyes, mouths and bodies of these people in the pictures.
Picture your children and grandchildren sharing housing with an AIDS patient and the blood from brushing their teeth and nicking themselves shaving or bursting one of those virus filled blisters in the bathroom facilities. If they have so much as a hangnail or scratch they will be infected.
Would you put your favorite pet into a cage with a rabid animal? I am not prejudiced against an person who has no choice over who they are, or where they originated, or the color of their flesh. But I believe that city council went too far by opening up the doors to an epidemic. Swine flu? Don't look too late, there are suggestions that are far worse than this flu, and all because of the matter of their choice of sexual orientation or city council's generosity.
Freedom of speech and of the press is a constitutional liberty. I have my opinions and chose not to sit idle while such acts are being determined. Our loving God did not destroy two cities like Sodom and Gomorrah without a just cause.
