AIM's Kincaid called for "Quit Gay Sex" campaign

››› ››› ROB MORLINO

Accuracy in Media (AIM) editor Cliff Kincaid called for news organizations to engage in a "Quit Gay Sex" campaign against "the dangerous and addictive homosexual lifestyle," given that "[l]ife-threatening sexually transmitted diseases among homosexuals are on the increase."

Accuracy in Media (AIM) editor Cliff Kincaid argued in a December 14 commentary posted to the right-wing media watchdog website that news organizations should engage in a "Quit Gay Sex" campaign against "the dangerous and addictive homosexual lifestyle," using as justification for his argument the November "Quit to Live" anti-smoking campaign launched by ABC News after veteran journalist Peter Jennings died of lung cancer. Kincaid argued that news organizations should take up similar campaigns against homosexuality, given that "[l]ife-threatening sexually transmitted diseases among homosexuals are on the increase."

Kincaid wrote, "As if it wasn't bad enough that the homosexual men are HIV-positive, they simply cannot stop having sex with other men. ... They think this is 'responsible' sex. But they are increasing their risk of acquiring other sexually transmitted infections, including new resistant strains of HIV."

Jennings, who was the anchor and senior editor of ABC's World News Tonight for more than 20 years, was diagnosed with lung cancer in April and died August 7. In November, ABC News launched its "Quit to Live" campaign in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Cancer Institute, and the North American Quit Line Consortium. The campaign included a series of documentaries on the dangers of smoking, methods to quit smoking, and lung cancer research and prevention.

Media Matters for America has documented a series of statements about homosexuality published by Kincaid through the AIM website, including:

  • "[Howard Dean's] success will depend on concealing the facts about Dean's homosexual experiment [which purportedly "implemented the homosexual agenda" in Vermont] -- and how he has used young people as sexual guinea pigs." [12/10/03]
  • "The problem with the [Tucker] Carlson show [on MSNBC] is the format, which places too much emphasis on his guests, including a regular named Rachel Maddow, a radio host on Air America who is described as the first out-of-the-closet lesbian to be named a Rhodes Scholar. She is a lesbian with hair so short that she looks like a man." [8/1/05]
  • "The Washington Post is emerging as a virtual house organ of the homosexual-rights movement." [7/20/03]

From Kincaid's December 14 "Media Monitor" column at Accuracy in Media:

Have you noticed that many news organizations, in honor of former ABC News anchorman Peter Jennings, have embarked on a quit smoking campaign? So why don't our media launch a campaign advising people to quit engaging in the dangerous and addictive homosexual lifestyle? Life-threatening sexually transmitted diseases among homosexuals are on the increase.

[...]

That's performing a good public service. But let's take this humanitarian impulse one step further. We would suggest that ABC News take on another dangerous practice--homosexuality. The latest reports indicate a rising pattern of sexually transmitted diseases nationwide. The 2005 estimate for syphilis cases is the highest in a decade, and the number of gonorrhea cases will exceed any other year's count since 1993. Federal officials attribute the increases mostly to HIV-positive homosexual men having sex with one another. The practice is called "serosorting."

The practice shows the dangerous and addictive nature of the homosexual lifestyle. As if it wasn't bad enough that the homosexual men are HIV-positive, they simply cannot stop having sex with other men. So they are still having sex, this time with other HIV-positive men. They think this is "responsible" sex. But they are increasing their risk of acquiring other sexually transmitted infections, including new resistant strains of HIV.

It appears that the homosexual lifestyle is as addictive as smoking.
