On World Aids Day, the announcement was made that “HIV infection rate is on the rise among gay men,” having increased 11% between 1987 and 2011 (Bangkok Post, Dec. 2, 2012). There are a half million people with AIDS in Thailand alone, with 9,500 new cases annually. In spite of the attempt by homosexual activists and the liberal media to paint AIDS as something other than a homosexual disease, the evidence to the contrary is clearly seen. It is not just a sexually-transmitted disease; it is a sexually-immoral transmitted disease.
The Thai secretary for public health mentioned that that “men who have [sexual activity] with men (MSM)” have a high risk of the type diseases that we cannot mention in a family paper. This is purely the result of their unnatural immoral behavior. Whatever AIDS is, it is not a disease that one gets if he honors God’s law of holy matrimony (except by means of something like a blood transfusion). Homosexual activists are fighting to have this deadly communicable disease protected by law so that those who have it cannot be “discriminated” against, but what about the rights of those who want to be protected from the very real danger represented by these people if they are working in the fields of health care, etc.? It’s all a sign of the times.
Let’s stay busy in the Lord’s harvest fields while we have opportunity. Homosexual sinners can be saved through the power of the gospel just as well as “heterosexual” sinners. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Rom. 1:16).
