Jamaica: fighting HIV stigma in church
Christian Aid partner UTCWI are providing training for clergy and faith leaders like Reverend Henry, allowing them to both challenge and change the church's attitude to HIV from within.....
...In Jamaica, high levels of homophobia and ignorance about HIV mean that stigma and discrimination continue to hinder prevention and treatment.
Jamaican society is deeply religious and many Christian denominations exist in the majority Protestant congregations. In spite of their number and influence, the church-going population and church policy itself hasn't responded as well as it could to increasing numbers of people affected by HIV and AIDS.
"...In Jamaica, high levels of homophobia and ignorance....."

We actually know a fellow like that. On both counts.

I see that i struck a chord, your kind always sticks together, is that why you are always calling eachother brothers?
Is your over achievement a sign of something else lacking in your life? probably so.
I would hypothesize that you are an over eater, when you dont have frank in your mouth you compensate with food.
Were you molested? Is that why you are a bitter homosexual?
I dont have to post my achievements here because i owe you nothing, and i am not here to spout off, because i know it doesnt matter how many letters are at the end of your name, they are meaningless because i know people with super high iq's who spend time analyzing the best route to go to the gas station. And quite frankly they sound like morons, you would never know what they "achieved" in college.
That being said i am not knocking education, but it now is just a money pit for the banks to lend you thousands of dollars to graduate and go to mcdonalds university.
The unemployment rate for college grads is appox half what it is for non-college grads.

Good point.

But in our defense, he is rabid homophobe.

Earlier today we also made fun of malnourished Jamaicans.

Not our finest hour.

But funny at the time. So all good.

I just thought calling a guy gay out of the blue - at least that's what I thought you were doing - didn't seem too funny.

Just one MAN's opinion.(Get it? I'm a dude too...just to be clear.)

You think that caring about your fellow man is feminine quality.

I hope you dad was nice to you.

More likely, in the past I was jiving you and told you I was a chick...

Interesting enough, usually I can tell who the women are here. Usually their posts are softer (less offensive) with less use of sarcasm. Def not me.

(second time)
In YOUR post 52052 YOU said "so I guess we are moving on"

A few post later on the same page or NOW you say, "what are you talking about? How does that link in to any of the previous discussion that I had participated in?"

Question, is that your idea of moving on? You are now asking about the SAME things.

Are you getting SENILE or is it that you are just plain STUPID?

http://www.lcms.org/jamaica
LCMS World Mission began work in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1993 in partnership with the Nebraska Lutheran Mission Society. Each year, short-term mission teams assist Lutheran Ministries in Jamaica with vacation Bible schools, construction work and medical assistance. Long-term missionaries have made significant contributions to the mission work in Jamaica through education for missionary children and in outreach and Christian education programs.
In 1993?

How does that relate to "infrastructure maintenance costs"?

What is your PRIVATE definition of MAINTENANCE?

I take it that in the US construction work is classified as MAINTENANCE but not in Jamaica.

Frijoles---Living in Jamaica you dont have the infrastructure maintenance costs, and plus your standard and cost of living is amazingly low.

HughBe--- List the items that you call, "infrastructure maintenance costs" (STILL WAITING, Frijoles)
Do you think that we have service in trees?.

HughBe---If you believe that churches here survive because of aid from the US feel free. Your argument is nonsensical.

GENIUS, we were talking about MAINTENANCE expenses in running churches in Jamaica.

FOCUS and THINK, for a change.

Thats wasnt the only thing I mentioned. YOU decided to limit it, not me.

What you have said is NOT applicable to the vast majority of Churches and I would seriously doubt that it is applicable to any church. I have NEVER been to a church which receives outside aid in order to function.
YOU talk too much BS. Aid to the poor is far different from financing churches. YOU are an ASS.

I would never shoot you, Frijoles. You are in need of forgiveness and pity.

Recall, you said you were moving on and then almost immediately you seek to reengage the matter.

We were talking about costs associated with OPERATING churches in Jamaica. Recall the LIST that I have REPEATEDLY asked you for?

Essentially, YOU foolishly said that Jamaican churches have nothing to worry about because the US gives aid for the running of the churches.
