Oh my hat!
And just as I thought he was actually going in a sane direction with this answer...BAM...right back to urban legend cuckoo land.
Of course there's many such urban legends on HIV/AIDS, such as emails about South African HIV-positive people putting their blood in the tomato
ketchup (which had racial, rather than homophobic overtones) at a major fast-food outlet.
Clinically it's all impossible.
The virus would quickly die in tomato sauce, and for a ring to pierce two hands and allow the blood to mingle would require quite a strangely designed
ring, and transmission would take longer than a handshake.
People would wince and withdraw their hand immediately, and it's not like it would go unnoticed.
How do people come up with stuff and hate gay people so much that they think this is possible?
Gay people in San Francisco have probably done more to fight AIDS than him and his crusaders.
Several US states have draconian laws against both intentional transmission, or simple non-disclosure, and HIV-poz people are serving long sentences
just for spitting, although it's now pretty much proven to be harmless.
So that would actually be treated as attempted murder, if it existed.
Why doesn't he comment on preachers who claim to cure AIDS that are broadly part of his Christian stream?
They are telling people (at least in South Africa) who were diagnosed HIV-positive that they are healed without any proof, and these people go on to
infect their partners.
Just beyond shocking, and I wonder how people can believe anything this guy says.
