"In the first official admission that the universal prevention strategy promoted by the major Aids organisations may have been misdirected, Kevin de Cock, the head of the WHO’s department of HIV/Aids said there will be no generalised epidemic of Aids in the heterosexual population outside Africa."
Comments from those who still think that AIDS is not mostly restricted to gay- and drug-culture + sexual licentiousness? Let me remind you that this is The Independent reporting on a publication from the World Health Organization. Anyone wanting to scream “bias” should seriously reconsider.
I found this interesting too: firstthings.com/article.php3?id_article=5240&var_recherche=aids
That is, First Things had an editorial in 1992 stating what took “experts” 16 years to admit. Score +1 for Catholic intellectuals.
In order to not end this post on too triumphalist a note, AIDS is still a huge problem and those who are most at-risk need a lot of attention. Those suffering from homosexuality need compassion, charity, and good advice. Those suffering from drug-addiction need treatment (and it’s questionable whether or not “clean needles” programs should be involved). And Africa needs attention, and a lot of it from Christian / Catholic charities. Money isn’t the solution; education in civilized-living is (PC faux pas), and so is circumsion apparently (see firstthings.com/article.php3?id_article=6172&var_recherche=aids as well as Independent article: 60% reduction!?).
