Those comment are a sad reflection on today's moral standards.
But you objection lacks logic. You seem to object to AIDS research leading to people being able to have unprotected sex? Don't you also object to people having protected sex?
The aim of the research is to save lives, noit only of the participants, but also innocent wives, children, & rape victims. Don't yuo approve of that? ?

Shira, I have tried to temper my responses to blogs for awhile but I have to respond to your comment that "aids is a judgement of God."
I don't believe that God sent AIDS as punishment for sin. Are you saying that the children with Aids, the innocent who have contracted this disease through accidential needlesticks, those who had contaminated blood transfusions were being punished by God???
God bless Bill and Melinda Gates for willing to give up Billions to fight this disease.

1 Samuel 15: 3& 4...God told Saul to go and kill the Amelekits, all cattle, women, babies, and men. Samuel killed all the people except 1 (can't remember his name) then saul lied about it. God does bring judgement upon all whether it is men, women or children.

i totally disagree with you Shira...God do not rain down these awful things like Aids etc...the devil can do all these things too to make people think it is of God...I believe Jehovah our God an all forgiving, faithfully, giving, loving etc Almighty God who loves us, whethere saved or lost...equally, He loves us all.

Jack, read the old testiment and tell me God's judgement does not affect children. Aids is a judgement of God I believe and as long as people care more for sex than they do their children, the children will die needlessly. I pray and wish I could wrap my arms around all the hurting children of the world. I pray God's protection on them all.

The funding for AIDS research is to save lives. People are going to have sex immorally till the Lord returns and sets up shop here on earth.
Why is it when someone tries to do something good, if they are an unbeliever, it is seen to be as doing something wrong?

**aids is a judgement of God and it has filtered down to the innocent(as it always does)children.**
I, for one, believe that when God decrees a judgement, it does NOT hurt the innocent. I believe His aim is BETTER than that.
It's like saying Hurricane Katrina was God's judgement on New Orleans, yet the French Quarter--epicenter of vice--was left unhurt.

bill gates wife is correct when she says people will not quit having sex. aids is a judgement of God and it has filtered down to the innocent(as it always does)children. Arthur Ash died with aids from a blood transfusion. Many, many children and innocent adults have gotten this rotten disease and it wasn't their fault.

How about funding some abstinence education?

Helen ... I think what is being said is that giving a fortune to try to find a cure for AIDS is not condoning sinful sex.

**His wife in so many words stated that not having sex until you are married doesn't work and nor can a women count on her husband being faithful.**
More than a few people on these Christian blogs have admitted to not exactly being virgins when married, or being 100% faithful in marriage.
Did even fear of God help them keep their clothes on, much less fear of AIDS?
We're talking about a DEADLY DISEASE here, not sexual morality.
Don't confuse a moral issue with a medical one.

The Gates are funding AIDS research to save lives. Regardless of any other side comments, the end goal is right. The longer someone lives, the longer they have to hear the Gospel.

Aids can be sexually transmited in babies too. And some people, have cheat on their wifes or husbands, get aids, and then give it to them. And there are tons of other cases in which people are victims and its not their fault
---Sarah on 8/14/06|
Do you honestly think that is why there is funding? So people can have sex? How about this: there is funding so maybe someday we can save lives.

HIV & AIDS also spread by cntaminated blood supplies, accidental contact with drug users blood, (think of the doctors, dentists and nurses)
It is criminal and satanic to suggest that it is wrong to give money to eradicate or at least reduce the danger of this menace.

If one person can get a disease, ANYBODY can get it.
Do you think your morals or your sexual orientation will protect you for one minute should a single HIV get into your bloodstream?
It doesn't matter how pure your life is. Once the virus gets inside you, it sees your T-cells, screams, 'LUNCH!"--and you become another statistic.

Are you sure you have your facts correct?
