The omnipotent God—and the AIDS threat

Ordinarily it's a good thing to be "easy"—to be an agreeable, cooperative person. But there are times when it's important to dis-agree, to refuse to go along with a general belief because you feel it's wrong. And this is especially true when—as with the current worldwide AIDS crisis—millions of lives are at stake.

According to recent figures from the World Health Organization, an agency of the United Nations, the global AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) "epidemic" has accelerated alarmingly during the past year, particularly in Asia. The World Health Organization predicts that this trend will continue—and that fatalities will escalate in all segments of the world populace: young and old, male and female, heterosexual and homosexual (Reuters, "AIDS global cases up 60 per cent, Asia hit hard," July 1, 1994).
