Gays ‘Purposely Infected Women To Pass AIDS Into Straight Population’ Says GOP Lawmaker’s Book

A Wyoming Republican lawmaker is getting a great deal of attention for his views on homosexuality and gay people today. Troy Mader was appointed to replace a long-time GOP state representative who passed away in January. Since then, a highly-offensive book he wrote in 1987, The Death Sentence of AIDS, has come to light, and Mader is reportedly standing by its contents.

At the height of the AIDS panic, when President Ronald Reagan refused to act and little was known about HIV/AIDS, Troy Mader collected some of the most volatile and anti-gay comments he could find and self-published the collection of quotes. Of course, some of those were from none other than the anti-gay activist Paul Cameron, a discredited researcher whose work the religious right has been using for decades. Other quotes are from supposed studies whose validity is highly-questionable — and totally inaccurate for today.

A sampling, via the Casper Star-Tribune:

death AIDs“The spread of AIDS into the general population of the United States is assumed to have come about by: A. Homosexuals who purposely infected women to pass AIDS infection into the straight population. B. Bisexual men who participated in homosexual acts, became infected and then passed it on to wives, lovers, prostitutes and most off-spring born after infection….”

“Many homosexuals demand the right to have sexual acts with children of any age, including infants.”

“One activist has said that 10,000 sex partners in the lifetime of a ‘very active’ homosexual would not be extraordinary.”

“Many homosexuals demand the right to kill themselves with the AIDS virus and to kill others by infecting them.”

“Mandatory Testing must be required for the entire population…”

“All sexual practices of homosexuals must cease…”

“A homosexual can reform if he wants to, it is just that most homosexuals do not want to change.”

“They (liberals and the liberal press) advocate national suicide for the ‘rights’ of a few.”

The Star-Tribune reports that Mader “stands by” the contents of the book. On one claim in particular — that government should mandate nationwide testing of the entire population for HIV/AIDS — Mader responded:

“I haven’t seen anything to refute their statements at the time.”

Of course, Mader says, “If you want to participate in that particular lifestyle, that’s your choice,” and adds that he’s not a bigot because he has several gay friends.

The sad part of this story is that this right wing political ass hat actually believes that this type of absurd, inflammatory rhetoric will make him more palatable to Wyoming's Christian conservative constituency.

The sadder part is that he's probably right.

Why are people so ready to believe the lies instead of the truth? Let's hope that the good people of this country send an even bigger statement this next election by voting in all Dems. The GOP platform is so bad and so full of hate that I don't understand why anyone would vote for them. We NEED the new voters out in mass. We need every Dem to take the time to cast their votes against inequality and hate.

Nope. Nazi, barbarian, BIGOT parasite.

Not one self-respecting person would be friends with someone that says Naziesque trash like that about them. Anti-gay reich-wing barbarians do NOT have gay friends. They may know gay people who are polite to them but they are not their friends. The illiterate, gullible anti-gay always misinterpret kindness for friendship. It is a symptom of their mental disorder. The callow anti-gay think by saying "I'm not a bigot because I have several gay friends" some how makes it ok to say the BIGOTED statements that mentally diseased Nazi TRASH has said. IT DOESN'T and nobody would be friends with somebody as cancerous as him saying those demonizing and dehumanizing BIGOTED hate filled statements about them.

He has a bigger case of "gayface" than Marcus Bachmann. Who do these people think they're fooling?

Right, and Hitler had "Jewish friends". Hrrumph.

“One activist has said that 10,000 sex partners in the lifetime of a ‘very active’ homosexual would not be extraordinary.”

Considering that would involve a different person each night, every night, over the course of 27 and a half years give or take… yeah, I'd say that's pretty extraordinary.

Unless, of course, you have lots and lots of group sex over the course of a decade. And I just don't know anyone who would have that kind of stamina.

i am really sick and damn tired of people using religion to suppress those who do not believe as they do. lets take a look at the council of nicaea in 325, at the time of this meeting of priest to consolidate christianity into what would later be known as the holy roman church (the catholics) there were over 150 sects of christianity in what was the known world. after they chose what the doctrine of the church would be, they only took those teachings that would bolster their opinion of what christianity would be, all the other teachings were dicarded and labeled as heresy. then those sects of christianity that did not follow what the council deemed as true christianity were arrested and forced to convert or killed off. this was the same mentality that cause the two inquisitions that followed later.

moving on now, it really burns my ass when these hate groups say that same-sex marriages will ruin traditional marriage.

first off what is called traditional marriage by judean and christian religions is not traditional marriage, the islamic religion is close to what traditional marriage is. traditional marriage according to the texts of all three religions is not one man and one woman. it is one man and many women, oh and the women have no say in who they marry either. as a matter of fact women were not thought of as people, but property to be bartered and traded like cattle. and until sons were married they had little or no say in who they were wedded to, but at least they were not thought of as property like women were.

as for homosexuality being a sin? well the fact is homosexuality is only mentioned 15 times on the bible were as murder/killing, rape, adultery, theft are listed in the tens of thousands of times. and if you look at the very serious seven deadly sins which are;

gluttony
lust
greed
pride
despair
wrath
vanity
sloth

now one would think that if homosexuality was such a great sin to god, then surely would have been listed here among these sins that were so deadly.

oh, i know it is in the law of moses, better known as the 10 commandments, so let us take a look at them shall we;

1. you shall have no other gods before me.

2 you shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. you shall not bow down to them or worship them; for i, the lord your god, am a jealous god, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

3 you shall not misuse the name of the lord your god, for the lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

4 remember the sabbath day by keeping it holy. six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the lord your god. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. for in six days the lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. therefore the lord blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.

5 honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the lord your god is giving you.

6 you shall not murder.

7 you shall not commit adultery.

8 you shall not steal.

9 you shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10 you shall not covet your neighbor’s house. you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

well i will be damned, it says nothing about homosexuality, so it must not have been that important. oh wait the story of sodom and gomorrah lets take a look at that my peeps;
http://www.str.org/articles/what-was-the-sin-of-shttp://www.gotquestions.org/Sodom-and-Gomorrah.hthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodom_and_Gomorrah

since it is too long to write here i have provided links for you to go and read, but once you do you will find that there is no clear reason to connect homosexuality to the cities destruction. though i guess one could argue that wanting to know someone means you want to have sex with them. personally i think that sine it was required of all living within the walls of either city to ask for permission of the cities elders if you were going to have visitors within the cities walls at night was the reason the men of soddom gathered around lotts home, because he violated their laws about night time visitors. the reason the two cities were marked for annihilation was because the two cities were a breeding ground for murders, thieves and the like, people did not care for one another, that means they did not help those who were less fortunate and treated them badly.

so, homosexuality was not the cause for the annihilation of sodom and gomorrah, but rather the total disregard of human life shown to those who were homeless and starving.
