Would someone please explain the facts of life to the American Heritage Party concerning homosexuality, AIDS and babies?
AIDS is primarily spread by promiscuous sexual behavior regardless of sexual orientation. The 600,000 HIV (letter, April
15 Herald) babies are the result of immoral behavior by your community not mine.
Your community has the advantage
of marriage to combat AIDS, mine does not. Consider the fate of four entertainers. Rock Hudson and Liberace both had short-term
relationships and died of AIDS.
Two other entertainers have an enduring relationship and both are healthy today.
They have dedicated their lives to preserving endangered species such as white tigers, white lions and an Indian elephant.
Who would argue that they do not contribute towards our society or the effects of enduring relationships to stem the spread
The letter states "AIDS - under no circumstances should the federal government continue to subsidize
activities which have the effect of encouraging homosexual conduct." By ignoring promiscuous behavior by heterosexuals,
the American Heritage Party is approving such behavior.
The laws of our state and nation thrust a deadly and immoral
lifestyle on my community, which we repudiate.
