Exposing the Ministry of Health and the contortions necessary to support the LGBT agenda .

 

“So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter”.

…. Isaiah 59:14…..

 

 

LGBT advocacy, like  its supporting world view atheism , is  totally  incoherent.

Lacking  any logical  or  internally coherent philosophical framework  within which to ground the  LGBTTTI ……(Z)  life style  those  who support the LGBTTTI ……(Z) agenda must necessarily resort  to  contortions  of  truth  or  ad hominem  fallacies.

The products  of  the working  out of  these  contortions  are  seen  in  all  aspects  of  life including faith  and  medicine .

 For  example faith based  groups  produce  functional  atheists , persons who  claim belief  in God but  are  their  own gods and publicly advance their concepts of  right and wrong  over  clearly  stated  biblical  truth.  

In  medicine  standard  epidemiological  practise, i.e  discouraging behaviour which has  high statistical  association with a  disease,  has  been  abandoned  in  the  fight against  HIV  among  MSM.  

Instead  of  discouraging  buggery which has  been shown to  be  the  significant  statistical  risk  factor  for  HIV among  Men who have  Sex with Men (MSM)  the  Ministry  of  Health and  LGBT activists  groups focus  on “stigma  and  discrimination”  and removal  of  the buggery  law.

The  removal  of  the  buggery  law  is  a  necessary step  to  start  the  legislative process  that  leads  to same sex  marriage.

The contortions of Jamaica’s  Ministry of  Health  are  exposed  in  the  letter  below.

HIV Policy Must Be Based On Science
Published: Tuesday | December 2, 2014 1 Comment
THE EDITOR, Sir:

It was disappointing, but not unexpected, to hear the usual familiar but unsubstantiated rhetoric about the buggery law being responsible for the difficulty in implementing policies for “reporting, treatment and prevention programmes for men who have sex with men (MSM)”. This is from a “concept paper” produced for the health ministry, as reported in The Gleaner on December 1, 2014.

What is a “concept paper”? How does it differ from a scientific, evidence-based paper?

There is no need for the ministry to resort to concepts, imagination, wishful thinking or conjecture in this matter.

In 2012, noted researchers in the Lancet reported that role reversal and anal-receptive intercourse were responsible for 98 per cent of the difference in HIV rates between MSM and heterosexuals.

Additionally, in 2011, the CDC, in the journal Aids Behaviour, reported: “The sexual health of gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in the United States is not getting better despite considerable social, political and human rights advances.” In fact, HIV epidemics have been increasing in MSM for more than two decades.

This led to the warning that “the disproportionate and worsening burden of HIV and other STIs among MSM require an urgent reassessment of what we have been doing as a nation to reduce these infections, how we have been doing it, and the scale of our efforts”.

The reading public can easily see how utterly illogical it would be for a law against any activity to be blamed for the predictable harmful effects of said activity. Blaming the buggery law for HIV rates among MSM is like blaming the Road Traffic Act for the injuries and deaths associated with dangerous driving.

The Ministry of Health needs to leave ideology and implement policies based on evidence and well-established rules for disease prevention. Otherwise, one would be tempted to wonder whether it is serious about reducing HIV in high-risk groups.
