Protestors rally outside church holding AIDS seminar in Owensboro, Kentucky:
About a dozen people gathered outside the Cedar Street Missionary Baptist Church in Owensboro on Sunday, where The Annual Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS took place. They carried signs that read "No mercy in hell," and "No civil rights for sodomites."
The worship service offered HIV testing at the end of the program. Cedar Street Missionary Baptist Church did not sponsor the event but offered the use of its building.
"You cannot help (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, or AIDS) with medicine," argued the Rev. Jack Oliver, who led the protest outside. "You must stop sodomy."

Correct us if we're wrong, but aren't the primary sources of AIDS transmission these days IV drug use and heterosexual intercourse?
