    Infection largely propagated by outdated religious constraints on using contraceptives and teaching comprehensive sexual education, which does not exist in areas that have high populations of gay people who use condoms and pharmacological aid. (New HIV Infections Drop 18 Percent in Six Years)
    If anything it teaches that religious puritism results in perpetually ineffective ways of handling problems, that is, ignoring it or banning behaviors it doesn't like.

    Do not forget to discount this by some 3000 years.

    Believe me, I have not discounted that medical advice from ~3000 year old cultures is not the best.

    If god exists there is no evidence it was anti-gay, it was not a thou shalt not.

    God wanted HEALTHY people, a few heterosexual in closed community would infect eventually all.

    The LORD forbids it for Jewish males. Nowhere do I read that God does not like it. The LORD is the covenant between the Jews, an expression of deity but not the deity itself. To claim that God generally does not like something forbidden to Jewish males you'll need to make a stronger case, find more examples. There could be reasons why Jewish males are forbidden from this, ones specific to their circumcision. To over generalize is a mistake.

    Wrong.
    Even gays in closed couples were banned.
    The reason was all about the people growing in strength as fast as possible. To achieve that closed heteosexual couples having children were needed.

    And any kind of outside affairs could lead to illness.

    So you're wrong.

    Do you even realize that the first sentence in that link states that heterosex causes the large majority of AIDS in the region under investigation?
    More than a quarter means less than half.
