In his letter to the editor, July 29, George Jones of Otisfield questioned whether the Sun Journal has an ideological agenda. I wonder if it has a bias against biblical Christians. Many folks question just what are the agendas of the media.
My second issue is AIDS/HIV in America. I watched the International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C. — the very heart of the American government and also the epicenter of HIV/AIDS infections.
There had been a ban on HIV/AIDS carriers coming into the United States but I believe that President Barack Obama, by executive order, lifted this ban to placate his base, the gays.
Speaker after speaker at the conference emphasized that most of the new HIV/AIDS infections are occurring with men having sex with men. The speakers also emphasized emphatically that ObamaCare must be passed in order that retroviral medication for AIDS carriers be covered. Both the Wall Street Journal and C-Span have reported that the lifetime costs of retrovirals is $367,000 (in 2009 dollars). AIDS is a lifetime virus.
The state of Maine is, once again, confronted with the gay-marriage issue: I believe passage of gay marriage will give yet another stamp of approval to that way of life.
America the beautiful, America the biblical? The nation defies God's moral laws and America will pay, pay, pay.

Editor's note: In 2009, President Obama eliminated the HIV travel and immigration ban put in place as part of the National Institutes of Health reauthorization in 1993. In doing so, he praised Congress and President George W. Bush for beginning the process to lift the ban in 2008, saying "they ought to be commended for it," according to National Public Radio. "We are finishing the job," he said.
