Some feel, correctly, that the black church is usually behind the eight ball when it comes to honestly talking about HIV. Black America is being eaten up by the disease, but everyone wants to pretend that it always happens to someone else.
Well, a group of black pastors in Houston Texas are not walking away from the issue. Instead, they are confronting the devastating impact of HIV on the black community and attacking the issue head-on. As Ree, the (Ree)lationship Guide says about HIV: The prettiest faces can carry the deadliest secrets. So, when you think about what you’re doing in your s*x life, make sure that you are prudent and selective about the number of s*x partners you have.
The conversation was spurred on by the NAACP, and is part of a growing dialogue that also reflects on how the black church responds to homosexuality and gay marriage. The conversation is going to be an important part of black America’s future, and we hope the dialogue continues.

The NAACP’s initiative titled “The Black Church and HIV: The Social Justice Imperative” discusses the overwhelming number of HIV infections affecting black women and men. The organization partnered with pastors at black churches throughout Houston, Texas, to participate in a “Day of Unity” today.
