    Report Finds Washington Has Highest AIDS Infection Rate Among U.S. Cities - New York Times

    AIDS will continue to spread. Sex ed doesn't work, giving out free condoms doesn't work, people say they get tested, apparently they don't.
    Abstinence programs don't work. You can't be abstinent or a virgin and do "other" things.

    Following God's rule to wait until after marriage is the only why to stay pure and disease free. But, that would be too easy. :rolleyes:

    Words of wisdom, preach it Scribe! (as Ed would say)

    Waiting until marriage doesn't always = disease free. It can happen where both are virgins on the wedding day, but it's not likely. Everyone carries diseases if they have had sex with more than one partner, that's just how it goes. But if your immune system is good, it can remain dormant and not become a problem. You would never know it is there yet you can still spread it.

    Often people don't know because they don't want to know. They want to continue in their lifestyle, no matter how dirty and disease ridden their systems become. Most won't quit until they actually show symptoms. Most people don't seem to care about their health.
