Please read this article: Just to give you a brief run down of why I feel this is such an important topic is because I come from close by this county. In St. Lucie County A population of less than 250,000. Maybe 1-2% of the population have HIV/AIDS. For that small a population that means that approx 2 to 3 thousand people infected. Possibly more. Why should public funding not go towards sex eduation? It is the public's and parent's responsibility to make sure that their kids are educated. If I must say, disease does not know ignorance and the longer people are ignorant to danger the more they put themselves at risk for that danger. Sex included. It seems to me that a religious leader would also understand that position. I just don't understand how this bit of money now is affecting him when so much more money goes into helping with HIV/AIDS treatment. Wouldn't this be better? Just want to know your opinion.
