WHY IS HIV/AIDS KILLING WOMEN of COLOR? HIV by the Numbers: Facts, Statistics, and You 2014

But we’ve so much more work to do to battle the spread of HIV among African- Americans, and particularly among women. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that nearly half of the more than 1 million Americans living with HIV/AIDS are African- American and that 40 percent of the nearly 563,000 Americans with AIDS who died in 2007 were black.
Among all women in the United States living with HIV/AIDS, 64 percent are African-American. In fact, the rate of AIDS diagnosis for African-American women nationwide is 22 times the rate for white women.
This problem is more pronounced in places like Washington, D. C., where the prevalence of HIV and AIDS among African- American women rivals that of Nigeria.

Here is my Contention & Observation:
Some "religious people" claim that HIV/AIDS is a judgment from God against homosexuality.
Our African American culture as other cultures of color are very much entrenched in "religion" that demonizes homosexuality; even those who do not attend church services and those who possess very little biblical knowledge on the subject matter; their judgment against homosexuality is quite pronounced. I would say that the prejudice against homosexuality is at an epidemic level and it has a stronghold in our communities which fosters prejudiced, hypocritical "religious" closeted, self-loathing, homophobic character influences in our society.

Personally, I don't believe that HIV and AIDS is a judgment from God against homosexuality. If HIV/AIDS is a judgment against homosexuality; then why the harsh judgment on heterosexual women of color or poor nations? This epidemic should have been a wake-up call to the body of Christ (church folk) many years ago as a "shaking" to come out of their DAZE of organized judgment and rebuke for the "gay community". The body of Christ should have taken this "Titanic of HIV/AIDS" by the helm in a loving Christ-like manner by commandeering and infiltrating the "gay community", homosexual and "on the Down Low" individuals with the true love and Gospel of Jesus Christ which is non-discriminating, non- alienating, it is NOT anti-homosexual and it IS for everyone. It should be the body of Christ that proclaim that we are fearfully and wonderfully made by the all knowing and loving creator and that he did not make a mistake when he created you as homosexual or heterosexual. The body of Christ should be promoting self- acceptance, monogamy and marriage for homosexual people as well, which is the key to halting HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in ALL, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

It's unfortunate that most in the body of Christ (the church) has decided to amp up their microphones of anti-homosexual prejudice in the name of God calling homosexuality sin and an abomination based on their flawed interpretation of scripture taking the liberty to interpret scripture as anti-homosexual (sin) by rewriting the word of God with other versions of the bible other than the King James Version to fit their logic and ideology. When reading those scriptures in their proper context and in all their TRUTH; those 5 or 6 scriptures condemns bisexuality, male to male sexual rape abuse, orgy worship to idols, male prostitution and the male prostitute's patrons; those scripture do not address or define Same Gender Loving People. Homosexual people may be different from the status-quo however it is the church's responsibility to embrace homosexual people as heterosexual people and minister the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ; not the inflicting anti-homosexual religious tradition.
I really believe that this whole (HIV and AIDS) matter in the African American community is simply about throwing caution to the wind and choosing to have unprotected sex and NOT facing real truth and brutal honesty about one's sexuality which stems from the generational, traditional religious (homophobic) rhetoric that is preached in our places of worship that promotes homosexuality as sin and THAT perpetuates and forces people to forsake the all knowing & loving God to live in the closet and participate in much of the "Down Low" promiscuous sexual activity in our communities which causes and spread disease. Our beautiful women of color & the souls of many other men & women are the victims of this crime committed by stubborn religious traditionalist who demonizes one's innate sexual identity as an abomination.
It is my goal and my endowment from from the Lord to encourage all of his people to study, live and learn the life of Jesus Christ and steer away from the religious traditionalist who pervert the true Gospel of Jesus Christ with their own discriminating ideologies.

I am speaking from the perspective of an African American Man who truly loves the Lord and could have easily married and gone the traditional family route + into the ministry and perhaps comfortably lived a life on the "Down Low" in order to appear as a pillar in my church, family and community. It has taken me 40 years to become true to myself and embrace my God-given, innate authenticity; which is far more liberating and spiritually fulfilling than living a conflicted mangled mess of a life involving other innocent souls in order to please the expectations of family, friends and church people with a facade or a distinguished disguise which has nothing to do with pleasing God or loving yourself.

What if the same Christian principles were taught to Same Gender Loving couples in our traditional places of worship regarding relationships and marriage as they are given to heterosexual couples: Put God first and foremost, pray together, love and value yourself, love and value your mate. Harming one another mentally, physically and sexually is not tolerated nor accepted. If those same principles were preached instead of the judgment and the rebuke; one would feel loved by God and the community and not forsaken by God as the traditionalist preach. There would be less (Down Low) sexual promiscuity and more spiritual responsibility. There would be much less disease (STDs and HIV/AIDS) There would be more LOVE.

Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbour as Thyself

Galatians 5:14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbour as thyself.

This is one of the most powerful and the most necessary of all passages in the bible that defines your spiritual walk with Christ other than truly believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Can you imagine what kind of world this would be if we all LOVED our neighbors as we LOVE ourselves in this Godly manner: God's Spirit makes us loving, happy, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled. There is no law against behaving in any of these ways. And because we belong to Christ Jesus, we have killed our selfish feelings and desires. God's Spirit has given us life, and so we should follow the Spirit. But don't be conceited or make others jealous by claiming to be better than they are. (Galatians 5:22-26 CEV)
These are truly the qualities of a holy and moral person.

A dictionary definition of LOVE is a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.

Believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the commandment to LOVE one another supersedes all 66 books of the bible and it trumps the Mosaic/Levitical Law that was in place for the Israelites before the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Some very "religious people" refuse to accept that the "Law of Moses" served its purpose for those people in history. Some have boldly gone against scripture to preserve parts of the Law of Moses by distinguishing Ceremonial and Moral Law which has no scriptural basis in separating the two. The New Covenant is crystal clear that we are not under the rule of the Mosaic Law (Rom. 6:14; 7:1-14; Gal. 3:10-13, 24-25; 4:21; 5:1, 13; 2 Cor. 3:7-18). The instructions given by Jesus Christ from the words of life in the New Covenant (New Testament) are very sufficient for living a moral & holy life. Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbour as thyself. This scriptures sums up all of the arguments and refuting concerning the Mosaic/Levitical Law.

The Christian Fundamentalist loves to discount this very crucial passage to it's lowest price and in most cases they refuse to include this scripture in their budget when it comes to their behavior in demonizing Homosexuality/Same Gender Loving People. Why is that? The content of this web site is loaded with scriptural proof and reasoning of that when you interpret the holy scriptures historically correct through the Spirit of Truth; homosexuality is not sin.

If you leave out the traditional disguise and coloration of blanketing the body of Christ (the church) with historic examples in the bible that speaks to male prostitution and the rampant orgy and idol worship for what occurred in that space in history by telling complete bible truths; then you will clearly see that Jesus Christ and the New Covenant does not condemn homosexuality; it condemns the ills of one's sexuality such as promiscuity and prostitution for females as well as males.

Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbour as thyself.

Old Time Religion Does Not Represent the True Legacy of Jesus Christ

The Fundamentalist Christian Religious Rhetoric that is often spewed so freely on the subject matter of homosexuality does NOT represent the true legacy of Jesus Christ. Demonizing people who were born homosexual has become a central rallying point for the Fundamentalist Christian Religious agenda.

The Fundamentalist Christian Community knows full well that
we are not living under the Mosaic/Levitical Law; we are living under the New Covenant of Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ who is the Son of God and who is the reason and the definition of Christianity does not condemn homosexuality. Even Apostle Paul does NOT define homosexuality as sin; 1st Corinthians 6:9 only condemns male prostitution and we simply don't know what arsenokoitai (abusers of themselves with mankind) means when you interpret those scriptures historically correct.
Romans 1st chapter was an indictment against a sect of people who whole-heartedly and purposefully turned their backs on God to worship idol Gods which has nothing to do with one's innate sexuality.

The Fundamentalist Christian Religious rhetoric on homosexuality does not represent the Jesus Christ of the bible or the Spirit of Truth; they are acting out as the very religious hypocritical Pharisees of the bible who opposed the ministry of Jesus Christ when he walked this earth. They clang to tradition and Old Time Religion, cherry picking from the Old Testament's Mosaic/Levitical Laws for the sake of religious tradition. I am encouraging you to look to Jesus Christ and to live as Jesus Christ (study his life) who is THE perfect example of the Real Christian.

Approximately 7 or 8 years ago when I was on a soul searching mission of my life; I ran across a book that revolutionized my world.
The book starts like this:

To lesbian and gay men who believe in a good God and reverence the Bible and who also want to believe in themselves

That book is entitled "What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality"
by Daniel A. Helminiak, Ph.D.
