Tearfund condemns the Church's attitude towards sex in Africa

The Christian aid agency has expressed its concern and asked for more international funding to African Churches in order to fight AIDS.
It has applauded the progress made by some churches regarding their support for people infected with AIDS but also condemned the overwelming negative attitude towards sex by the majority of some Christian denominations.
The act was welcomed by some analysts who also worry that the Church ongoing practice of preaching abstinence instead of safe sex as well as their inability to talk openly about sex was getting in the way of such efforts. BBC online has more.

The Church everywhere doesn't seem to get it. Abstinence is never gonna be the answer. Never did, never will.
