AIDS: Are We Awake Yet?

I am fully persuaded that pushing condoms in schools, community clinics, and churches isn’t going to stop this deadly disease from spreading.  It is amazing that the public-at-large is being duped into believing that somehow convincing people to use condoms will somehow prevent this disease from ravaging communities.  Look at the latest from this CNN article regarding HIV in Black America.

AIDS in America today is a black disease,” says Phill Wilson, founder and CEO of the [Black AIDS] Institute and himself HIV-positive for 20 years. “2006 CDC data tell us that about half of the just over 1 million Americans living with HIV or AIDS are black.”  Although black people represent only about one in eight Americans, one in every two people living with HIV in the United States is black, the report notes.

Folk, the War on AIDS will not be won by pushing condoms and 6th grade sexual education classes, but by preaching the good news of Jesus Christ in schools, communities, and churches.  Reportedly, AIDS in Black America is approaching the rate of AIDS transmission in African countries.  There are various physical, psychological, and social reasons why people — particularly black people — are having casual, unprotected, and illicit sex.  Until the eternity-shaped void in people is filled with the love of Jesus, HIV will continue to wreak havoc in communities.  In the next few posts, I want to discuss some of the reasons AIDS is so prevalent in the black community,  and how we might possibly fix the situation.  Some of you will disagree.  That’s fine with me, tell me how you feel!

In the next few days, I will post:

*The Absence of Fathers
*Stop the Music!
*Condoms Don’t Work
*Abstinence Doesn’t Work Either
*The Up-High and Down-Low Effect
*Using Man-Sized Solutions for Jesus-sized Problems
*The Cure for AIDs.

On deck,  The Absence of Fathers…

    That’s what you get from doing casual sex with anyone. It can be very dangerous to anyone especially if done with so much aggressiveness and not thinking about what could happen in the future.
