Thousands of events around the world will mark World AIDS Day on Saturday, Dec.1, including many Christian-sponsored events as believers increasingly become engaged against the global crisis.

The theme this year for World AIDS Day is “Keep the Promise Take the Lead.”

“This is not the time for complacency nor apathy,” said the South African Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, according to the World AIDS Campaign. “It is the time for compassionate leadership.”

If only Pope John Paul II had never rejected condoms as a counter to AIDS*, I might believe that some good might come out of this. Maybe it is just me, but I believe that John Paul II has already done some irreversible damage. Now archbishop Tutu’s admirable initiative will probably only be seen as flip-flopping.
Maybe the message will even be totally ignored since a pope ‘outranks’ an archbishop.
