You claimed that the Catholic Church is not making the problem worse. This is proven demonstratively false by the people handling the situation from a medical perspective and not from a religious one. Do you have ANYTHING else you want to claim? Or are you going to sit here and tell me that you're now a big supporter of the Church's abstinence only position?Sure. But it serves no point because none of that addressed anything I stated about what the Church's mission actually is. But it's fun to watch you run back and forth in a round room trying to find a corner.
Actually. AIDS does see class and social boundaries. AIDS is prevalent in Africa, South America and everywhere else where people live in poverty and are both highly religious and highly uneducated. North America, Europe and most modernized countries in Asia do not seem to have this problem? Why? Even the AIDS epidemic in America during the 80s does not compare to the situation in Africa. Why? Could it be because people smartened up? Started using condoms more regularly? Started educating themselves about dangerous sexual practices? I'm willing to bet a shinny dollar that it's because of that and not because they chose to engage in FAILED religious programs like those supported by the Catholic Church?Suuurvey says...
The sick are there because AIDS is a very nasty disease that sees no color or class boundary. It sees an opening in risky behavior and it strikes.
Who blamed it solely on the church? I said they were partly responsible but only because they take advantage of the highly uneducated masses. Keep trying.Blaming the AIDS crisis in Africa on the Church is just childish, idiotic, and low even for you. Well, probably not for you.
You keep trying to bait me. Why? Is it because you can't seem to comprehend that the way that the way the CC is going about this is simply wrong and not helping anyone? Even after it's been proven so? Even after abstinence programs have been discredited for the failure that they are? Even after you YOURSELF have argued against abstinence programs? Or is it because it is the Catholic Church that you're getting all offended?No, one long statement of the obvious when it comes to you and how you address any issue that the Church is part of. Present something worth debating and you won't be the object of ridicule, sparky.
No, telling poor uneducated people that they shouldn't engage in sex outside of monogamy and attempting to build partnerships with their governments so that aid can be deployed faster.
Thank for trying.
