Some even wanted to stop drug companies from developing medications to slow the progression of AIDS or medications to control Herpes. I even met one fellow who had been promiscuous in his younger years and once he was converted he refused to use medication for the oral Herpes he'd contracted. He often had a sore on his mouth that looked miserable.

The people who complain about things like this claim that God will punish them if they don't speak out against it. What they can't see is that for things like this there is nothing they can do to stop it.

This doesn't surprise me but it irritates me that these people have found something else to complain about. Why can't they just worry about their own lives instead of trying to control others?
I just donít understand religion, the people who think god hates everyone that are different form them, Iím all for freedom of speech, but I also believe in freedom from speech. Iím fine with people being dumb by them selves, but when there stupidity stipples my advancements, it pisses me off.
