I have heard about the manual, but some of the African American ministers here in North Carolina won't even look at the manual. They have told me that "if a person has AIDS he deserves it" and other comments like this

That's great! I'm glad to hear something responsible and uplifting come out. Talking about this responsibly and realistically is the only way to break the stigma. That, and to really lift the veil helps prevent new infections because it gets constructive, informed discussion out in the open, accessible to everyone. I hope this positive event sets a trend in the right direction!
