Edward Green, the former director of the AIDS Prevention Research Project at the Harvard School of Health, has again defended Pope Benedict’s 2009 remarks on AIDS and condoms. While traveling to Africa, the Pontiff told journalists that AIDS “cannot be overcome by the distribution of prophylactics. On the contrary, they increase it.”
In a recent interview, Green said that his new book, Broken Promises: How the AIDS Establishment Has Betrayed the Developing World,is “an extended vindication of Pope Benedict, at least as far as the so-called generalized HIV epidemics of Africa are concerned.”
“We have seen HIV decline in Africa when the number of multiple and concurrent sexual partnerships has declined and when more people have been faithful,” added Green. “The role of condoms in HIV success stories such as Uganda and Zimbabwe has been debated, but we have certainly never seen more condom use alone bring about declines in HIV.” (Source)
Is it legal for him to say that? I’m surprised that the Rainbow Jackboot has not had this man stripped of his teaching position.
After all, we can’t let the facts and common sense have anything to do with our sex parade, can we?
