Medical journal essays claim 'homophobia' aggravates AIDS epidemic

Catholic World News - August 02, 2012

The British medical journal Lancet has produced a series of essays arguing that “homophobia is a key driver” in the spread of AIDS, and calling for an end to laws and social attitudes that discourage homosexual acts.

The Lancet essays contradict scientific findings—some contained in the Lancet essays themselves—clearly showing that homosexual activities multiple the risks of contracting the HIV virus believed to cause AIDS.

The spread of AIDS has slowed significantly worldwide in every demographic group except active homosexuals.
