And guess is not just AIDS

It is tragic that the facts are rarely articulated historically or in the contemporary age about the good work that Christianity is about in the U.S. and around the world. One example - if it weren't for the religious community in America precious little would be getting done concerning the post-Katrina damage that has so damaged our state of Mississippi. On issue after issue, tragedy after tragedy it is frequently Christians who arrive first and stay late. At any rate, this paragraph from the LA Times. Bless them.
"Bush and his Christian supporters seldom get the credit they deserve for their role in the global fight against AIDS. U.S. spending on the disease overseas has risen more than tenfold under Bush, while Christian groups have given unselfishly to the cause. Churches, in fact, run health clinics in much of rural Africa; without them, stemming AIDS would be all but impossible. So praise the Lord and pass the antiretrovirals." More, here

Amen! I have been on a couple mission trips to rural Kenya and the local Methodist church and hospital are doing amazing things for AIDS patients, AIDS orphans and countless others.
