    "African MSM are nearly four times more likely to be HIV-positive than men who don't have sex with men."

    AIDS is a terrible disease but one that largely due to poor and immoral choices. I don't worry about getting AIDS because I don't make decisions that will lead to me getting AIDS. It really is that simple.

    Nice editorial Michael.

    I'm glad you pointed out: "And a few American religious figures have incited malicious prejudices rather than confronting them."

    Additionally, there are more problems in Africa w/regards to AIDS than simply MSM. African men have a much higher incidence of men having multiple opposite-sex partners while never having even experiencing MSM. That is as much, or more of a problem than just MSM.
