"Of course, there's no scientific evidence that Jesus had the HI virus in his bloodstream. The best gift we can give to people who are HIV-positive is to help de-stigmatise Aids and create an environment where they know God is not against them, he's not ashamed of them."

--Pastor Xola Skosana in South Africa, who argues Jesus was HIV-positive

This is just the kind of silly remarks that gives the religious right ammo to attack us with. It is really hurting the cause and doesn't help with the discussions over civil rights.

Lets all stop and think about what we say before letting it out of our mouths. Its called discretion forks. Every thought that flitters through our minds doesn't have to ‘come out’ to the public. By keeping our mouths closed a few extra seconds maybe the we will find a less offensive way to express it. Shock value doesn’t help near as much as reason.
