Elizabeth Warren pointingA cultural expert suggests that several Democratic presidential candidates have adopted a stance that exposes people to danger.

During the latest CNN town hall, host Anderson Cooper raised an important question and got a positive response – affirming his own view – from three of the 2020 White House hopefuls, Pete Buttigieg, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren.

The question the openly homosexual leftist host asked was whether laws requiring an HIV positive individual to tell his mate prior to intimate behavior ought to be repealed.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality responded to Cooper's point, which was that modern drugs are available to prevent spreading the disease.

“For him to say that because progress in containing HIV and keeping the viral low down, that you don't need to punish somebody that intentionally infects another person with this very, very serious disease, it's just insane,” LaBarbera contended.

He went on to point out that it is like saying it is acceptable to shoot people because there are hospitals that can treat the victim.

“People who intentionally infect others with this – at one time [it] was a deadly disease, and now it's just a very serious disease that needs a lifetime of medication to treat – people who do that intentionally are cruel people, and they should be punished,” the conservative activist argued.

LaBarbera stressed that it is important to keep in mind that the candidates are taking the stance for one purpose, and that is to pander to homosexual activists to gain their support – including financial assistance.

In CNN’s Equality Town Hall on Thursday, Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke vowed that he would indeed work to enforce laws that would remove churches’ tax exempt status if they openly opposed same-sex marriage.

“There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution, any organization in America that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us," O’Rourke told CNN host Don Lemon and the town hall audience.
