    Yeah, darn modern-day Christians, always blowing themselves up, cutting people's heads off on TV and hanging seven-year olds. Curse them!

    As soon as I saw who the OP was, I knew he would take a story and somehow twist it, non-sensically, into a completely ridiculous attack on liberals. It's good to know that you did exactly what I predicited, zim. You're great at making nonsense attacks.

    To the OP... pretty disgusting act.

    I don't recall anyone accusing the Taliban of being rocket scientists.

    That's what I think. It sounds apocryphal, like those urban legends back in the 80s about how the diabolical gays and/or junkies were planting AIDS-laden hypodermic needles in various places- such as the change-slot on the pay phone (remember those?) or the soda machine- so that people (children, probably) would get poked with them and infected with AIDS.
    Never happened.

    Hypos do turn up in some odd places in the city, but it's because junkies sometimes have to ditch them quickly, to avoid arrest.
    When cities relax paraphernalia laws and allow needle exchange programs in (where IV drug users get individual biohazard containers to keep their used points in, and once a week they can turn in the dirty needles for brand new ones), the number of used points littering public areas decreases, and along with it, the risk of accidental sticks (which, as has been mentioned, are unlikely to cause HIV infection anyhow, unless the plunger on the hypo is somehow depressed. Hep-C would be the bigger risk).

    HIV survives for only a short time outside the body
    HIV can survive at room temperature outside the body for hours if dry (provided that initial concentrations are high), and for weeks if wet (in used syringes/needles). However, the amounts typically present in bodily fluids do not survive nearly as long outside the body—generally no more than a few minutes if dry. Again, the amount of time is longer if wet, especially in syringes/needles and related equipment.

    Digs, careful of your sources. The Sun is very well known for inventing stories, think Weekly World News with tits on page 3.

    You really want to go on a direct comparison of violence in the name of Christinianty and violence in the name of Islam?

    Don't go there, you wont win.

    You could TRY that - but it's a physical impossibility. HIV can only live outside the body for seconds to minutes. Additionally, the only way they could pull that off is if hey manage to keep the needles moist and at between 95 and 100 degrees exactly. Even then, it can only last for a couple of days.

    So maybe they thought of something awful. But it's about as realistic and dangerous as Andy Samburg's Laser Cats.

    Taliban are evil, terrible, and yeah. It's why we're at war with them.

    But this is newsworthy?

    It's like: Breaking News: Hitler was rude!

    [QUOTE=lizzie;1058798914]This comes as no surprise to me. All the posters on this forum who love to try and compare the far right conservative Christians to Taliban, would be wise to open their eyes and see what type of brutality and cruelty goes on under Taliban rule. There is absolutely no comparison.[/QUOTE

    There aren't significant differences in the authoritarianism prescribed by Jewish, Christian, or Muslim doctrines. It's just that there's an opportunity for implementation of them in Muslim countries since they don't have separations of church and state, and have intertwined governmental and clerical authorities. In pre-Enlightenment times, when Christian religion and government were also intertwined, we saw the Spanish Inquisition, St. Bartholomew's Massacre, hundreds of executions at Smithfield, the Crusades, etc. I don't find it difficult to see Christian Reconstructionists like the late ultra-Calvinist Rousas John Rushdoony in the position of the Taliban if they had the opportunity, or even more moderate right-wing Christians like James Dobson and Jerry Falwell leading authoritarian religious administrations. I mean, Falwell supported racial segregation before it was no longer trendy.
