Rick Warren and AIDS work
Sigh. I really dislike some of the things Warren has said on social topics, particularly LGBT stuff, but somewhat agreed with Obama that he reach out to people he disagrees with but have done valuable work on certain issues. This article shows that Warren's work on AIDS in Africa is less valuable than I thought, and that his allies in Africa cut condom distribution leading to a rise in the number of AIDS cases.
