WASHINGTON, May 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- On the eve of a congressional vote on gays in the military, a shocking new video dramatically explains why the admission of open and active homosexuals into the U.S. military could very well result in the spreading of deadly HIV-tainted blood throughout the ranks.
Entitled, "Asking for Trouble," the video from the public policy group America's Survival, Inc. (ASI) notes that male homosexuals are currently prohibited from donating blood because of the diseases that they carry. And yet admission into the Armed forces could put them on a battlefield where other soldiers could come into contact with their infected blood and bodily fluids.
The explosive 10-minute YouTube video is available at www.usasurvival.org
"A vote to repeal the homosexual exclusion policy would inevitably mean more disease and death for members of our Armed Forces," stated Cliff Kincaid, the veteran journalist who runs ASI. "It is unconscionable to add this danger to the risks they already face in fighting for our freedom around the world."
Another danger, the video explains, would be the admission of transgendered individuals who want to dress up as members of the opposite sex and would cry "discrimination" if they are not allowed to do so.
"If Congress repeals the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' homosexual exclusion policy," declared Kincaid, "Corporal Klinger could become a reality in the Armed Forces." Klinger was the bizarre character on the MASH comedy show that dressed up as a woman so that he could be kicked out of the service.
"Klinger may now give way to the Pentagon actually permitting transgendered male soldiers that look like Klinger to openly wear women's clothing," noted the ASI president.
As the vote in Congress draws near, Kincaid predicted that the pro-homosexual liberal media will deliberately ignore the fact that a decision to repeal the policy would mean that gay soldiers could be put in the position of donating infected blood to other soldiers in desperate need of blood transfusions.
"A soldier desperate for life-giving blood could die as a result of the transfusion from a gay soldier," Kincaid said. "By the same token, a profusely bleeding gay soldier could threaten those caring for him on the battlefield, ultimately taking the lives of his fellow soldiers."
While individuals are tested for HIV before they join the service, Kincaid noted that 19,000 have tested positive after they joined and some have clearly acquired the deadly disease by engaging in prohibited gay sex. In one case, an HIV-positive soldier infected a 17-year-old boy he met in a gay online chat room.
But the danger isn't just HIV/AIDS. A 60-page ASI report by researcher Dale O'Leary makes the points that other life-threatening infections could be in gay blood for which there is no scientific test yet available.
Kincaid said, "Opening the military to individuals with a documented history of exposure to deadly diseases, when there is no guaranteed way to screen their infected blood out of the blood supply, is reckless and irresponsible and could literally destroy the Armed Forces. But that is what Congress is being pressured to do by the Hollywood-backed and well-funded homosexual lobby."
A vote is expected in Congress on Thursday.
