I have AIDS. I am surprised that I do. I have not been exposed since1977, which is to say that my experience, myadventures in homosexuality took place largely in the1960s and '70s, and back then I relied on time and abstinence to indicate my degree of freedom from infectionand to protect others and myself.Harold Brodkey

The AIDS epidemic has rolled back a big rotting log and revealed all the squirming life underneath it, since it involves, all at once, the main themes of our existence: sex, death, power, money, love, hate, disease and panic.

This law keeps us from giving people access to the information they need.judith krug
The Ryan White Care Act provides money for community-based counseling centers. While that may sound noble and compassionate, we know from experience that "AIDS education" becomes a platform for the homosexual community to recruit adolescents and lure teens into a self-destructive sexual lifestyle.Christine O'Donnell
About President Bush's stand against condoms, condoms will not protect you from AIDS . So to just throw a bunch of condoms over to Africa and say, here, we're helping you with AIDS, is just going to further the spread of AIDS over there.Christine O'Donnell

Drugs are tearing apart our societies, spawning crime, spreading diseases such as AIDS, and killing our youth and our future.
The foundation of all free government and all social order must be laid in families and in the discipline of youth. Young persons must not only be furnished with knowledge, but they must be accustomed to subordination and subjected to the authority and influence of good principles. It will avail little that youths are made to understand truth and correct principles, unless they are accustomed to submit to be governed by them... And any system of education... which limits instruction to the arts and sciences, and rejects the AIDS of religion in forming the character of citizens, is essentially defective."noah webster
The great work of the present for every man, and every organization of men, who would improve social conditions, is the work of education the propagation of ideas.

For true evangelical faith...cannot lay dormant; but manifests itself in all righteousness and works of love; it...clothes the naked; feeds the hungry; consoles the afflicted; shelters the miserable; AIDS and consoles all the oppressed; returns good for evil; serves those that injure it; prays for those that persecute it.
The smallest effort is not lost, Each wavelet on the ocean tost AIDS in the ebb-tide or the flow; Each rain-drop makes some floweret blow; Each struggle lessens human woe.charles mackay
