A Christian activist who became HIV positive after his wife was infected by a blood transfusion is withdrawing from the presidential AIDS advisory panel under pressure because it came out that he had called AIDS the “gay plague” and homosexuality a “death style” that could be cured by Christianity. As Ari Fleischer said, “The views that he holds are far, far removed from what the president believes … The president has a total opposite view. … The president’s view is that people with AIDS need to be treated with care, compassion.”
Thanks for sharing, Ari. I hadn’t noticed the guy said anything against care and compassion, but after all the president has all the facts. I would have thought that a man who is dying along with his wife, almost certainly as a result of the sexual conduct of homosexuals, should at least be able to make a rather mild comment on the situation. It seems not, though. Compassion is reserved for the bug chasers of the world, who live the death style instead of just dying as its innocent victims.
