Tears And Sweat

Think Progress has the latest BushCo. policy from the the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The announced new guidelines for organizations applying for grants for abstinence-only education programs. Later, the guidelines explicitly define marriage:

"Throughout the entire curriculum, the term "marriage" must be defined as "only a legal union between one man and one woman as a husband and wife, and the word 'spouse' refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife." (Consistent with Federal law)"

When I saw this new report it immediately brought back memories of Bill Frist on "THIS WEEK" from 12/05/05. The abstinence program was spreading falsehoods at that time. (video)

George: You're a doctor. Do you think tears and sweat can transmit HIV"

Frist: I don't know...I can tell you.

George: You don't know?

Frist; I can tell you things like, like...condoms.

George: You believe that tears and sweat might be able to transmit aids?
