We really make a big production out of homosexuality. A typical example is the furor over the sexual orientation of Arafat and his possible death of AIDS. In the greater picture of history Arafat's orientation and proclivities are just not relavant.
Ronald Regan was a great man who was heterosexual. However, Stalin and Mao were evil men who were also heterosexual. The sexual proclivities of all of the above tell us absolutely nothing about the historical figures.
I also want to point out that AIDS is a disease. I certainly was respectful when an obnoxious anti-semite who has said malicious things about me announced he had AIDS. To his credit he did not blame anyone else for his condition. As a true human with dignity I paused and wished the obnoxious commie lout 167 an easy remainder of his life. To do any less would make me as evil as 167. A reminder this is the same dirtbag who posted Ariel Sharon should suffer as much as possible and go to hell. One should contrast this with my non statements when Arafat was on his death bed. The reality is that Commies are just hateful people and their actions are best used as an example of how not to behave.
One of the things I admire about true Christians is the commitent to life even from its earliest days. Many Christians dedicate their lives to alleiviating the needless suffering of the sick and educating the poor. To wish people a painful death or to suffer would be UnChristian and inhuman. Commies starve people to death on purpose and make excuses. Christians feed the hungry and differ on dependency issues.
I was not shocked that 167 did get AIDS because of his defiant low class demeanor and in your face sexuality antics. On a human level his common expressions of sexuality were crass and vulgar as opposed to loving. Those that tend to debase the human factor of sex and reduce it to a recreational activitywithout responsabilities are more apt to engage in unwise behavior.
