What Is It About SOB's that Bring Out Hypocrisy?
The City of Dallas has the HIGHEST RATE OF STD'S in the Country. The City of Dallas has the HIGHEST RATE of SYPHILIS among young adults in the Country. The City of Dallas has the HIGHEST RATE of NEW HIV infected women in the Country. Many of the new infected live in the Southern Sector. The numbers of people infected are 90% related to unprotected SEX. With the numbers of Sexually Transmitted disease in this City and County and not one Soul is talking about it. I must say IBOC and Friendship West have been very active in making their congregation aware of HIV/AIDS and working on prevention.
I have not heard one Elected Official call for a stop or meeting or any thing to educate the public or simply say stop Young people.
Yet when they get word that a SOB (sexually oriented business)is being built on Westmoreland that will sell and rent Adult movies they go crazy. Where have they been ? It has had license for two years .The City of Dallas was sued by this industry and lost at the Supreme Court. In fact the Court said that the City must make available 5% off it's land mass for these businesses. The City then passed an ordinance governing SOB's.
We have no SOB's in Southern Dallas or in Oak Cliff so what is the cause of all the SEX in Southern Dallas that's causing all the STD's? I have no dog in this fight just common sense. I do not want an SOB in my neighborhood, or near my home, school or church. But if it is legal and the Court says we must allow them, the City has done its best to make them locate in industrial District or manufacturing district that should not impact neighborhoods.
Pastor Ted Haggard in Colorado who led the move against homosexuality by day and practice it by night remind me of some of the people that have come out with some very odd speeches. It reminds me of the Congressman who hated pornography but keep a locked case of it under his desk for viewing until a clean up crew found it and put in trash by mistake.
I hate to see the Political operatives make this an issue during election time when they know full and well what the Court said. Playing on the emotions of good people should be against the law. I do not want my area to go down any more then it has in the past five years ,but I will not advocate violation of anyone's right nor will I lie to the public for a vote. I will fight for my neighborhood by any means necessary.
