Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

First I thought it was funny. Then I remembered what yesterday was. Now it's people like this who sadden me:

You have unnecessarily commented about my website on AIDS, even though you have not read my articles on the subject. Why are you so terrified of knowing some facts? Will the knowledge of those facts shake your faith in Christianity? You have already become nervous. Your nervousness shows that you are not even sure of your faith in Christianity!
Now read something disturbing about the celibacy in Catholic priests.

Suppression of the Sex Urge is Dangerous:
Lack of Sex can cause AIDS!

Sir / Madam:

Complete abstinence from sex, with absolute purity in thought and deed, makes men more prone to AIDS. The men who practise physical and mental abstinence from sex, like the Catholic priests who have taken celibacy vows, and the Hindu, Jain and Buddhist priests who believe in brahmacharya, are much more likely to get AIDS than the men who indulge in promiscuous sexual relations.

The accumulation of semen in the bodies of men practising physical and mental celibacy, is much more responsible for causing AIDS, in many of them, than is the infection with the so-called HIV in the case of other men who indulge in sex with many women. The avoidance of sex for prolonged periods, leading to the retention of large amounts of semen in men, can cause persistent diarrhea, dehydration, loss of weight, low blood pressure, severe insomnia and chronic fatigue in many of them.

It's not people like Shatrugan Sinha who are the greatest danger to India because they are blind to the AIDS threat. It's cranks like these. I sincerely hope HVK takes his email off its site if it's to maintain some semblance of sanity.
