commented on "Why Do You Hate Me?"
No time to read all of what is written in the comments but I am a heterosexual conservative republican christian and I fully support same sex marriage and all the rights that are associated with marriage being extended to same sex couples. I do not approve of the government interfering in the lives of people, not allowing people to marry and have rights is interference. While I believe that "separation of church and state" is often taken too far I do not believe that we should base marriage laws on any religion, marriage is a legal institution first and a religious one second anyway, it is the government that issues marriage licenses and atheists can marry...
I am also a microbiologist and while HIV/AIDS patients can potentially contribute to antibiotic resistant bacteria they are also more likely to die and take those bugs with them. I am more concerned about the ignorant people who insist on being given an antibiotic even though they have a viral infection, there are way more of those than HIV+ people! Also I have never heard of "gay-related syndrome" and I am getting close to completing my doctorate in microbiology, I must have forgotten to take "Made Up Diseases 101", oops!
