But HIV doesn’t cause AIDS - isn’t that the story going around Africa?

After the Holy Violation you have to wash the Holy Appendage somewhere.

And remember, guys:  having a sexually-transmitted disease is a proof of your manliness and virility, so why would you want to prevent yourself getting one?

Sounds similar to the hell fire thing, this guy is trying to scare people into behaving.  He probably doesnot believe HIV is in the condoms, he just want people to behave.  And this is not the way to do it

Shall we spread a rumour in Mozambique that Church wafers are infected with HIV? See how he likes that?

*sigh* Yeah.. Let’s see.. The middle of a HIV-riddled continent, you’re trying to convince people that the one thing that *will* help them avoid getting it is going to kill them. Riiight.. He’s probably trying to use this as an excuse to push the usual church ‘no sleeping around’ thing, but let’s face it, people are gonna do that *anyway*, so would it really kill them to do so safely?

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

So let’s say these condoms ARE infected with HIV.  In order for the virus to continue to live and infect someone, wouldn’t that person have to use the condom within like a couple of hours after the contamination? 

If I remember correctly, HIV doesn’t live long after it leaves a warm body.
