How's this for "safe sex?"

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jul 12, 2003

In an AP story on President Bush's visit to Uganda, we find this head-scratcher:

Bush's own five-year, $15 billion AIDS plan is modeled after a program in Uganda, which stresses abstinence, monogamy, and condom use.

Really? All three?

  • Abstinence and monogamy? What does that mean?
  • Abstinence and condom use? What does that mean?
  • The fact is that Uganda's program-- the only successful anti-AIDS effort in Africa-- stresses abstinence outside marriage. But American observers have been so thoroughly brainwashed that they toss in the ritual mention of "condom use" even when it makes the sentence nonsensical.

    An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
