Seed’s Jacob Klein has a video up from his time at the AIDS conference last week: link. It includes short interviews with Kay and Rick Warren, evangelical Christians and founders of Saddleback Church, the grandaddy of all mega-churches. (Warren is also the author of The Purpose-Driven Life, which I’ve admittedly not read). It’s interesting to hear their views, but as noted in this SF Gate article, there’s still a lot of skepticism about their motivations and methods. (For example, while they discuss treatment and dealing the HIV, they don’t pass out condoms, and their ABC’s emphasize “Big A [abstinence], big B [Be faithful], little c [condoms]. Finally, Warren has also previously been outspoken about his views on homosexuality and how it’s “unnatural,” which leads many who are HIV+ to be (understandably, it seems) wary of Warren’s assistance.
There’s much more in Jacob’s video, including interviews with Tony Fauci, so be sure to check it out (and pass it along to your friends; can’t let the old folks have all the fun.)
