    Excellent point!

    Everytime I see this post I think it says "Cell phone video shows woman topless"

    I will guarantee you that of the most prominent reasons people have for not using condom is the teachings of their churches and the influence of their old religion. Africa and South America, where the Catholic Church is still a powerful force(not so much so in Africa due to a growth in baptist churches but still signficant) this is most certainly the case in both Muslim AND Christians. This stranglehold that religions like Islam and Christianity have coupled with the undying and even more socially entwined customs of their old religions have created a pool of ignorance in Africa and South America.

    When you have witch doctors on one side telling you that AIDS can be cured by screwing virgins and your pastors telling you not to have premarital marriage and BOTH groups failing to educate the population on venereal diseases, you get Africa and South America's current situation.

    It is a conglomerate of many factors but have no doubt that religion is essential to explaining how it all comes together.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
