Various arms of the AFA such as and the AgapePress have been promoting a new bible distributed by Tim Todd Ministries containing comic book style inserts on various cultural issues. Comics can be viewed at the Truth For Youth website including one on safer sex which is factually incorrect:


Excuse me, did they just cite a factually discredited SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD ARTICLE? I’m sorry, the notion that latex condoms are porous and allow the transmission of HIV is so factually incorrect I shouldn’t even waste your time providing a link. But you know what? I’m trying to keep things a bit more HONEST than Timm Todd and slightly more recent sources. Let’s see what the Centers For Disease Control said in a document dated Jan 23, 2003:

Laboratory studies have demonstrated that latex condoms provide an essentially impermeable barrier to particles the size of STD pathogens. [*]

This goes beyond the notion of “red state / blue state facts” into the realm of deliberate misinformation and downright lying. Tim Todd and the American Family Association should be ashamed to so zealously promote such a publication.
