It is tragic that a group of Christians, characterised by their obsession with sexuality, are choosing to overwrite World Aids Day with their own ‘day’. Entitled “Not Ashamed Day” it is supposed to be about getting Christians to stand up and declare their faith following a number of cases of alleged ‘persecution’.
Churches across Britain are being encouraged to mark this year's World Aids Day, and an Asian worship service is being distributed for use in local congregations. The liturgy is endorsed by the Christian Conference of Asia.
Faith-based campaigners and religious leaders say churches should not relax their efforts to deal with the HIV/AIDS pandemic despite UN figures showing a drop in the number of people worldwide living with the virus, says Desmond Tutu.
