Christian group planning to infiltrate Pride and ‘cure’ people of HIV

  • ChocoBetty

    I wonder if they are aware that a person that gets HIV treatment can come back as negative because the cell count of the virus (or the antibodies) is so low that it is close to invisible… Doubt that they know that fact.

    • terryinindy

      Actually that isn’t true. Even an “undetectable” viral load has some virus, furthermore the only reason a person with HIV will not test positive is if the CD4 count has dropped to near 0, then the antibodies are almost undetectable.

    • Mark J

      Also an HIV screening test tests for antibodies to HIV, NOT the virus itself. Even if the virus is totally cleared from your system, the antibodies persist for life. We know this is true because Timothy Ray Brown, the only person known to be cured of HIV, still tests positive for the antibodies to HIV even though thorough tests of his blood and nearly every body tissue that can be biopsied has come up free of the virus, despite lengthy searches with electron microscopes and other tools.

  • Rich the sutHrIVer

    Think I’ll stick to my meds .

    • And

      Advice they would do well to follow themselves.

    • Jones

      Yes that’s a lot better than clasping your hands together and talking to a supernatural being in the sky.

      • ROBERT JACKSON

        Christian wont cure any thing because the don’t no the nothing about god they read a book and they think its god get a life

  • you

    whats the harm in letting them pray? i mean its only words, and youre not obligated to get back to them.

    • terryinindy

      Encouraging Snake Oil Salesmen will do no person any good.

    • Rob P

      It is not just that they are praying over these people, but they are telling them that they are cured. Someone desperate enough to be cured might take them at their word and rather than go to their doctor, will just stop taking their medications.

  • Carl

    Wow, deluded people. I want to see them try, though. What are they going to say when they fail?

    • Phyre Storm

      “OMG, not ONE of those ungrateful gays came back to thank us!”

      • lord thorpe

        Oops I think you have just pre-empted their next press release. I can see the headline now———-“GAYS WORSE THAN LEPERS”

    • moonsongtx

      Oh they’ll have some excuse like “You must not have welcomed God into your life to heal you. You should read the Bible, follow it, and pray again! It will work, I know it will. Have faith! All good things are possible to those who believe… including this!”…. etc. etc. etc.

  • terryinindy

    And when they fail should they not be arrested for practicing medicine without a license? Oh and just FYI for the “Christian Group”,treating anyone against their will or without their knowledge is as Unethical as it gets.

  • Ryan Vanspoor

    Is it just me, or is this a thinly-veiled attempt at causing a resurgence in the belief that AIDS is God’s Gay Plague?

    • http://4strongwomen.wordpress.com/ Christine Akers

      Doesn’t sound thinly veiled to me.

  • Brian Martenis

    Jesus simply said “Follow me” he did not jam his philosophy down anyone’s throat. These people are not Christian. Just “grandstanders” looking to judge and make people feel uncomfortable. Jesus would never do this … Never!

    • Mark J

      Seems to me there are specific passages in the Gospels about where and how to pray, and that ‘loudly in public places’ wasn’t what Jesus had in mind.

  • Jones

    This treatment process, does it by any chance involve strapping a live chicken to the arm and wailing prayers at the same time?

    • http://sarayork.com/ Sara York

      You forgot the foil caps

  • Halou

    So, let me get this right. These people will walk up to people they know are HIV negative and tell them to get tested, then when the results come back negative they will take personal credit for that and demand the person attend a suicide camp as punishment?

  • Mark Y

    christianity is pure psychosis.

  • Cal

    Any more insane and they’d be gibbering behind bars.

  • Teva Bruce

    Are they on commission?.

    • lord thorpe

      Very likely. However I would not recommend it as a career choice. If you want to work in the religious arena, I would suggest perhaps selling vatican approved condoms to catholics (they have a hole in them). Or condoms without holes to catholic priests (leaves less D.N.A.) perfect for those occasions when they are sexually abusing small children.

  • portertx

    While the sentiment us wonderful…..why not pray for the injured soldiers who lost limbs and such….I mean grow back a limb is much more convincing IMHO

  • Michael

    Well of course they will succeed in healing two or three people! You don’t think they’d go to the trouble of staging this pantomime without planting a couple of stooges to wail ‘Hallalelujah’ do you? And then a Republican Senator will stand and demand that the organisers each be granted the Congressional Medal of Honour.

  • danah gaz

    Even their god can’t cure stupid.

  • Norman

    I have a better Idea…Why don’t we get rid of the emergency departments at the hospitals and just have these people in there praying…..God will be seen as the great healer and everybody will fall and grovel at his feet. This would be absolute proof he exists and think of the money everybody will save on medicine and doctors. Why hasn’t anybody done this before??? The perfect solution to everything.

  • Truth

    What disgusts me more than anything about these hate-filled, judgemental bigots is that their religious brainwashing prevents them from giving any credit whatsoever to the thousands of medical professionals who have devoted their lives and careers both to looking after HIV patients and helping to find a cure. If their god is as ‘loving’ as they claim, he / she has one warped mind to give babies cancer and allow kids in Africa to starve to death. These people are mentally ill – as are all self-delusional believers and they should be locked away.

    • Hermes Mercury

      These particular persons yes – but please – do not add to the delusion in place by extending their actions to all religious people – which you seem to suggest. Many, many people of faith – Christian, Jewish, Wiccan, Unitarian, etc. etc. – certainly do acknowledge the medical professionals and their work. Further, many of them help (and more than a few are doctors). In Albany, back in the early days when no one would even shelter AIDs victims, when it was first called AIDS rather than GRID (Gay Related Immunodeficiency Disease), Father Ronald Gerber, an Episcopal Priest, turned the rectory into Damien House – the first place in the Capital district (which was consistently among the five hardest hit metros per capita by HIV) where those who were dying and had nowhere to go could be cared for – mostly by volunteers. Likewise, a Roman Catholic Mother Superior (though I do not remember her order) ran a shelter for AIDS infected mothers and (back then) dying babies. Do not let the creatures that creep about on the Right of Christianity convince you that all people of faith are the same – because I assure you, they are not.

      • Truth

        You are right and I apologise is it sounded like I meant ALL ‘believers’. The problem for ‘belief’ right now is that those ‘believers’ who do indeed follow the precepts of TRUE Christianity, for instance, do and say nothing to silence those (as above) who do immesurable harm to their cause. Invoking the imaginary power of The Sky Fairy to cure the gay.community of one of nature’s biggest killers – especially in largely heterosexual Africa -is both unbelivably childish and deeply insulting to rational people.

        • Leslie Gray

          While your comment was strongly worded, I did not get the feeling that you were condemning christianity as a whole. These guys are nothing but conservative grandstanders, trying to earn their “holier-than-thou” award of the moment.

          It looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot of that kind of thing as this cultural revolution churns its way through society.

      • CrissCross

        Any Christian who sits back and does nothing to halt these counterfeit Christians is tacitly supporting their actions and allowing them free reign to bastardize the faith and apply it to whatever toxic evil they deem appropriate. By not opposing or stopping them you are approving of and supporting their abuse of YOUR religion.

        Christianity stood by and did nothing for the 35 years that the rabid anti-gay churches evangelized homophobia across Africa & Eastern Europe. And now, in the name of Christianity, Uganda (among others) has rabid and damaging anti homosexuality laws that are inflicting massive harm.
        It was done by “Christians” in the name of Christianity without any opposition from true Christians who now, after the effect, point fingers and claim that these “Christians” are not proper Christians and have nothing to do with “real Christianity”.

        “Real Christians” failed to do anything to entrench genuine Christianity in the hearts and minds of the homophobes of Uganda etc. Real Christianity failed. People are dying as a result. Those deaths are the result of the failure of “true Christianity”.

  • http://4strongwomen.wordpress.com/ Christine Akers

    BUAHAHAHA BUAHAHAHA!!!!!! I think a group of psychologists need to infiltrate this crazy ass christian group!!!

  • Robert Rowley

    If these “people” are encountered at any LGBT event they should be driven out as if they were money changers at a temple.

    • stepol

      I would find it very dificult to not batter the lot of them for being so offensive

  • michaelsnaith

    This needs stopping now

  • ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Those Christians protesting at pride event are wasting their own valuable time.

  • lee

    they don’t want to infiltrate they really want to take part in Pride bless them

  • Eugene

    They are discriminating against heterosexual people by not trying to cure them of HIV/AIDS. Those heterosexuals must be terrible sinners not to deserve their brand of mercy.

  • Jock S.Trap

    Religion is Evil. End of!

  • JD

    Christian Dumb Asses – Just tell them to mind their own business and take their petty outdated superstitions and bigotry and find something more useful to do – like DIE

  • tobyg1

    How many millions have died of AIDS so far? Guess none of them prayed hard enough. Gee – if only they had known a bearded white man sitting on a cloud was just waiting for the right words and presto – the nightmare would be over! I suppose the prayer has to be in Latin – or maybe Aramaic – to really work.

  • Fur Beasty

    One day there will be a cure for HIV but sadly religious bigotory will be with us a lot longer.

  • Alexander Kelso Shiels

    Why are these people even acknowledged? They seem to be living on another planet! I think they should all be scanned to see if they have a brain.

  • http://www.bloketoys.co.uk/ BlokeToys.co.uk

    Another excellent example of how mental health services and facilities in the USA are far below the level needed for their public.

    I don’t care how many people this offends or who might disagree with me, this is mental illness, it is the rejection of reality in favor of a fanatical fantasy – if that is not psychological illness then what is?

    These people should be offered psychiatric care immediately.

    • danah gaz

      OMG when I began reading you I thought you had called HIV a mental illness.

      Excellent post by the way. I wasn’t pointing that out to criticize, I just thought it was kind of funny, and surprised me. I almost wish someone *had* written that – it would provide a whole knew level of “stupid stuff said by stupid people on the internet”

  • Cartimandi

    I hope they get a lot of “air time” — including reporting that no one was healed. Show them on every news station at their craziest moment. There is no better argument for Atheism than Christians.

  • StealthGaytheist

    Nutjobs.

  • Rovex

    These people are satirists, right? I refuse to believe that real humans are that dumb.

  • israel carrazco

  • israel carrazco

    Israel carrazco I was hiv positive on 2007 ..but “GOD” work in me I know songs ridicules but ”GOD” can work in you …now I ‘m negative..?

    • lord thorpe

      I’m very happy for you, that you are not H.I.V. positive, but I think a mistake has been made somewhere. Either you were misdiagnosed in the first place or you were misdiagnosed later. I would advise you to get checked again. If you really have gone from H.I.V. + to H.I.V.- you would be of considerable interest to researchers fighting this disease.
      You have the potential to save many lives. I don’t think “God” had anything to do with it. Good luck.

  • Kafir istani

    so did jesus contact this group by phone , video or email or did he come to them in person or spirit ? this is just more foolishness from foolish people .

  • CrissCross

    HIV has been marauding its way through humanity for decades, it has killed 35 million people, both heterosexual and homosexual.
    Why have these “Christians” withheld their miraculous “cures” until now? Why have they stood by and done nothing effectively condemning 35 million people to death? Surely such a thing is large scale and willful mass murder?

    The only three possible explanations are
    1) Their God is a brand new fabrication that didn’t exist before today,
    2) They are peddling lies, or
    3) They are evil mass killers.

    Interested to see which of the three they actually agree to be the correct description of what has been happening.

  • Dana W

    I looked all over. If they were there I never found one and I was there both days AND in the parade. I’m disappointed. It would have been hilarious.

    I Am Mrs mabel, i live in Texas (USA).
    [READ MY STORY. ON HOW I GOT MY AIDS CURED].
    Truthfully, i was tested HIV + positive last 3years. I keep on managing the drugs i usually purchase from the health care agency to keep me healthy and strenghtful, i tried all i can too make this disease leave me alone, but unfortunately, it keep on eating up my life, this is what i caused myself, for allowing my fiance make sex to me unsecurely without protection, although i never knew he is HIV positive. So last few 4days i came in contact with a lively article on the internet on how this Powerful Herbal Healer get her well and healed. So as a patient i knew this will took my life 1 day, and i need to live with other friends and relatives too. So i copied out the Dr idielu the traditional healer’s email id: idieluspiritualtemple@live.com, and I mailed him immediately, in a little while he mail me back that i was welcome to his temple home wereby all what i seek for are granted. I was please at that time. And i continue with him, he took some few details from me and told me that he shall get back to me as soon as he is through with my work. I was very happy as heard that from him. So Yesterday, as i was just coming from my friends house, Dr idielu called me to go for checkup in the hospital and see his marvelous work that it is now HIV negative, i was very glad to hear that from him, so i quickly rush down to the nearest hospital to found out, only to hear from my hospital doctor called Browning Lewis that i am now HIV NEGATIVE. I jump up at him with the test note, he ask me how does it happen and i recide to him all i went through with Dr idielu. I am now glad, so i am a gentle type of person that need to share this testimonies to everyone who seek for healings, because once you get calm and quiet, so the disease get to finish your life off. So i will advice you contact him today for your healing at the above details: Email ID: idieluspiritualtemple@live.comCONTACT HIM NOW TO SAVE YOUR LIFE:idieluspiritualtemple@live.com AS HE IS SO POWERFUL AND HELPFUL TO ALL THAT HAVE THIS SICKNESS…
