President Bush asked Congress to provide $30 Billion additional funding to fight AIDS. This is wonderful news. I have always wondered the reluctance for USA to provide funding for international efforts in health care and poverty alleviation. This is a right small step in the direction. So, I decided to read more about it, to see what the programs that will benefit from it are. Being a skeptic, I was expecting to find something fishy, may be a specification of drugs, or some wording about intellectual property. To my surprise, I did not find any rumor mills working in that direction. Then there it wasâ€¦
The plan is to provide support for fighting AIDS by providing healthcare and medicines as well as a prevention plan. Guess whatâ€¦ The best way to prevent AIDS is abstinence. This is a principle that has been successfully tested in the US high schools. I am sure this will be the end of AIDS. We all know that it is a disease that God brought upon us for our own immoral actions. I strongly propose a strong advocacy against homosexuality as well. This will be a second dawn for Africa, centuries after the first dawn dawned on them as the missionaries.
An abstinence related story from Texas I think talks about this Prom dance where daughters go as dates of their fathers. They dress up and spend the night dancing and drinking non-alcoholic drinks. This is supposed to promote abstinence in female offspring apparently by somehow satisfying their natural sexual urges. I am not insinuating anything!!!!
