[Tyler Clementi, committed suicide 9/22/2010]
Thousands of people are mourning the death of Mr Clementi, an 18 year old college student who committed suicide after being taunted about his homosexuality.
I wonder how many people are mourning the deaths of straight people infected with HIV by homosexual men.
Imagine for a moment that you had a twenty eight year old daughter. She is diagnosed with AIDS and tuberculosis and is expected to soon die. Her husband and her two small children, have tested HIV positive. Researching into this, it turns out that when she was 18, your daughter had unprotected sex with an 18 year old boy. That boy unknown to her was HIV positive after having had unprotected anal sex with a man who, unknown to the boy, was HIV positive. Such tragedies can and do happen in America and Europe today.
If we would follow the Torah's commandment to put to death any man who has anal sex with another man, those tradegies could be prevented.
