Right Mike (and Ake),
recent information from those specialists who have, since HIV/AIDS first appeared, devoted their efforts to the real problem, curing it, is that HIV is now downgraded to ""a manageable condition which need not significantly affect the life expectancy of sufferers"". The search for cure and vaccination is ongoing and hopeful.
This, Mike, is also evidence! Evidence which has been brushed aside as irrelevant by Ake.
Further to that, when I asked Ake whether his view of homosexuals and Gay marriage would change if HIV/AIDS were eradicated, he sidestepped the question with ""There are other considerations!""
When asked why he opposed Gay marriage as a route to monogamous relationships, he replied that Gays don't want it, in spite of evidence to the contrary. The tenor of his viewpoint is that Gays are inherently promiscuous, when the evidence is that they are n more so than heterosexuals.
You may draw your own conclusions as to what that says about his protestations of being concerned only on grounds of public health.
I have drawn mine.
This post is completely lacking in personal abuse. It is a reasoned response which I have used before to absolutely no avail. For reason to work, one must be speaking to a person who is open to reason and willing to debate honestly.
