The May 15, 2006, issue of Newsweek magazine reported that, in the last twenty-five years, 25 million people have died of AIDS. In order to see the enormity of this plague, this averages almost two deaths per minute (1.9) for the past 25 years! When the AIDS epidemic began in the US with five deaths in the homosexual community of Los Angeles in 1981, it quickly spread among homosexuals, to heterosexuals, and to drug abusers. It also spread through tainted blood transfusions. Since then, many mothers have passed it to their innocent children. Over 40 million people are now infected with HIV.
Sadly, as the AIDS virus has spread its destruction throughout the world, the opposition to homosexuality has been greatly reduced. More people accept, favor, and even welcome homosexuality today than ever before! More politicians, schools, churches, and homes now condone and embrace it.
Could this plague have been avoided? Honest people know that the spread of AIDS could have been stopped over 20 years ago if homosexuals and drug abusers had ceased their evil activities. They must bear the blame of the spreading of this curse. Voices spoke out, but they were vilified and quickly drowned out. The lesson has not been learned: godliness is profitable unto all things. 1 Timothy 4:8. Albert.
