Citizens for Community Values extends hate with AIDS fears

Citizens for Community Values is an Ohio hate group headed by Phil Burress. He is obviously not the most articulate person around. Conflating AIDS with marriage equality is idiotic and the notion that the gay community is ignoring the continuing epidemic is simply untrue. The Human Rights Campaign's issue brief is as clear as the New York Times article that Burress is referring to. Last summer Burress claimed that the Supreme Court decisions in Hollingsworth v. Perry (Prop 8) and U.S. v. Windsor (DOMA) were victories in defense of marriage.

For the record, being gay is not unhealthy. Having unprotected sex is unhealthy. Oppression is unhealthy. Listening to someone like Burress, who refers to sexual orientation as a "lifestyle" is unhealthy.
