Of the 127,150 women currently living with HIV/AIDS in the United States, 64% are black

Stacy Smith Segovia:

AIDS kills more young black women than anything else.

Not car wrecks.

Not cancer.

AIDS.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its March 2007 report, "HIV/AIDS among Women."

Based on statistics from 2004, the most recent available, the CDC reports HIV infection is "the leading cause of death for African-American women aged 25-34 years."

It's shocking, but true. And the Rev. Sherri Scott isn't stopping long enough to be shocked.

She's taking action.

Saturday, in observance of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, three ministries at Greater Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church will come together for a day of AIDS education and free, confidential testing.

"Among women and girls, the rates are rising," Scott says.

Scott, an associate pastor at Greater Ebenezer AME Church, says that while March 10 is a day set aside nationwide to educate women and girls about the risks for contracting HIV, men and boys are also welcome at the church, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

People may come at 10 a.m., stay all day, and pay $10 for a boxed lunch. Or they may come simply for a free, confidential HIV blood test.

Limited child care will be available, but parents are encouraged to bring their preteen and teenage children with them to hear the presentations by Nashville CARES (Council on AIDS, Resources, Education and Support) and several other HIV/AIDS support organizations.

"Men are invited. And unfortunately, a lot of children are sexually active," Scott says. "A lot of times parents don't want their kids to hear certain things, but their kids are doing things."

Women are significantly more likely than men to contract HIV during vaginal intercourse. Of the 127,150 women currently living with HIV/AIDS in the United States, 64 percent are black.

The illness, once thought of as a disease of the young, transcends age barriers, Scott says.

"We have seen a rise even in senior citizens, because of Viagra and Cialis," Scott says.

HIV, the infection that causes AIDS, is spread through sharing of intravenous drug needles or unprotected sex. Use of condoms dramatically reduces the risk of transmitting the virus, and a new antimicrobial cream that kills the virus is currently being tested.

The CDC reports that among populations of women who have sex exclusively with other women and do not use intravenous drugs, the risk for HIV infection is very low.

Based on available research, the CDC theorizes that relationship dynamics — such as financial dependence on men or lack of knowledge about men's high-risk behaviors — create many of the roughly 10,000 new HIV diagnoses among American women and girls each year.

Scott, whose own ministry, STARS (Spiritual, Talented and Resourceful Saints) for Jesus, is one of the sponsors of Saturday's workshop, says the motivation for her is personal.

"I had a very dear friend that died from AIDS," she says. "I didn't feel like I did everything I could to help him."

Scott's friend died 10 years ago, long before Scott opened her heart and entered ministry.

"I was called to the ministry five years ago," she says. "I know I haven't always been the holy righteous person I should be. But for the grace of God, it could be me. I'm going to be tested, too."

Scott says her friend, who was gay, struggled with how he would tell his father and brothers, who were football-playing jocks, that he was gay and had AIDS. Scott told him, "Tell your mother and sisters first, and they'll help you tell your father and brothers."

They did just that. Scott says she met with some resistance locally while trying to plan Saturday's activities, and that's why experts from Nashville were called in to speak.

"Even though church people don't want to talk about it, church people are having sex. Children are having sex. Old people are having sex," she says. "We can't ignore it."

So basically black women with no jobs and loose morals are "at risk." No shit. It took another AIDS study to figure this out. Guess what, it won't make a difference either. Everybody, and I mean everybody in this country whose breath would fog a mirror knows how to get AIDS or keep from getting it. Christ, it is all we evre hear about anymore. Has anybody not seen that stupid ad "If one of us has AIDS we all Do" bullshit? Yeah right, if some junkie in needle park has AIDS we all do? You couldn't avoid heariing about AIDS if you wanted to. Or that stupid Gap Red ad campaign. Enough already!

"Relationship Dynamics." That's what they call it now? Niggers behaving like, well, niggers!

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CHURCH
THE CURE for HIV/AIDS.

Sir/Madam,


A VISIT FROM THE ANGEL GABRIEL
My second life began on August 21, 2002, when I had just gone to bed. I was
not asleep but semiconscious when an angel appeared at the doorway, standing
on the penultimate step.
Gabriel : “I am going to give you the cure for Aids”
Vern : “Right…….there is no cure for Aids!”
Gabriel : “Do you believe that I am an Angel?
First, I thought that this Being was joking, or that I was dreaming so I
turned to get a good look at the Angel. He was wearing a white robe, he had a
tan complexion and I was only viewing him from his right side. He was very
serious and had a stern look …like that of my mother when I am misbehaving.
Vern : “Yes…..” Then I paused and asked...
Vern : “What is it?” Then Gabriel showed me the ‘PALM’
plant, certain specie.
Gabriel : “It is in this.”
Vern : “But, we have studied this plant and there is nothing
in it!”
Gabriel : “Since you (meaning man) have studied it, WE have put it
in.”
Vern : “How do we get it out?”
Gabriel : “Take a piece……………………….then drink it three times daily
for 21days (then there was a long pause) and it is to be FREE”
Vern : “Why me?”
Gabriel : “Why NOT you?”
Vern :”You got me there….. (Pause)...do you realize how this
is going to change my lifestyle?”
Gabriel : “Yes… (Now he turned and looked me straight in the eyes
with the sweetest, kindest and gentlest smile)...let me show you.”
Then he took me to the window and showed me hundreds of TV station
mobile units lining all four streets that bordered the house. Then Gabriel left
and I was now exited, fearful, in a state of shock and generally unsettled.
For the next 7 months, I pondered what was happening. Then I
prepared it and gave it to my first patient ….and …IT WORKS!!!!!

I have been trying for a number of years for the scientific community at the
very least to look at the claim that I have been making that THE LORD GOD has
given US the CURE for HIV/AIDS.

What is it? The CURE, named AMBUSH is an EXTRACT from “The PALM’ plant to which
there are more than 3000 species. On examination of AMBUSH, the active
ingredient is found to be an isotope of uranium with an amino side group.

What is the dose? The dose is 60 ml three times daily for 21 days and the
concentration is measured by the ‘taste’ factor.

How does it work? Ambush works by “KILLING” the virus. Firstly by elevating the
temperature of the trunk area, especially at nights when the patients are
laying down. This is because of the radioactive property of the isotope.
Secondly, the amino side group attaches to the protein coating of the virus
causing it to rupture. Thirdly, since the uranium molecule is ‘large and heavy’
, it is not metabolized by the body but is excreted virtually unchanged. In
industrial productions of AMBUSH, the amino group will be exchanged for
phentolamine.

What are the known side effects? Firstly, there is a metallic taste which is
overcome by the addition of natural preservatives which help to prevent
diarrhea. Secondly, since most HIV patients in the later stages, tend to be
weak and not sexually active, when they are taking AMBUSH, certain changes also
takes place. Thirdly, if the patient is on antiretrovirals and their viral load
is low or undetectable, then some of these patients have complained of
headache, indicating that there are no more viruses to be killed.

Then what after the 21 days treatment? Here I can say that you have been CURED
OF THE SPECIE OR SPECIES that you had.

What do you mean? I thought you said I would be CURED!! Yes, you are CURED of
THAT SPECIE. Since the ‘HIV’ virus replicates by attaching its RNA into the
host’s DNA, then whenever the viral offspring leaves a cell it takes part of
the host’s genetic ‘makeup’. This means that since every person has a different
DNA, then EVERY PERSON WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT STRAIN!!!! This means there are as
many strains as there are people infected with HIV.

How do I get CURED then? When you have taken the initial 21 days supply, you
would have been CURED of all the species in your body. If you are infected by
another strain from a different person, you will know it by a condition marked
with ‘chills, fever, generalized weakness,’ then you will need another 21 days
supply of AMBUSH. This virus will be with mankind until completely eradicated
with AMBUSH.

If I get tested after taking AMBUSH, will I be negative? NO! No, you will NEVER
be tested negative because the body develops antibodies to the virus and the
HIV test is that test for the antibodies. After taking AMBUSH for 21 days, the
individual would have developed immunity to the strain or strains that have
been killed, meaning they would not be infected by that strain again. Since
each individual represents a different strain, then it is possible to be
infected by each new individual but knowing that the CURE is found in the next
21 day supply of AMBUSH.

How do I get it? I have given AMBUSH to more than 200 patients and I welcome
any scientific group or institution to PROVE ME RIGHT. I am ready and willing
to provide treatment for a number of patients who would be willing to take
AMBUSH under a “test’ program and or a sample of the active ingredient noting
that the extract for consumption is different from the active ingredient. For
further information please go to www.ambushcuresaids.homestead.com.

What about vaccines? I have the greatest of respect for all the scientists, in
all the various fields in trying for 26 years to conquer this virus,
remembering that I myself am a pharmacist and I do have an idea of the work and
its frustrations. However, the LORD GOD said that the testing of vaccines is
like fist-fighting with an enemy for 26 years who has been beating you all
along and now you give him a knife. We need to be able to ‘kill’ the virus
first without killing the host, and then we would have the basis for vaccine
production.

What else do you know about AMBUSH? Since I displayed knowledge, it can be
thought that there may be other aspects of this project that has not been
discussed and may be useful to a governmental entity.

How did AMBUSH originate? This question always causes me to loose my audience,
but it has to be addressed. Before I answer, let me ask a few questions; what
is the probability of an average pharmacist who is not working in the field of
pharmacognosy picking a plant that contains THE CURE FOR HIV/AIDS? By what
method or reason did I arrive at dose? Researchers of medicinal plant chemistry
will concur that in any plant material, there are thousands of different
chemical compounds. How then did I learn to extract the active ingredient? The
answer is simply that THE LORD GOD, GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the GOD of
the BIBLE; he gave me all that I have written with regards to the CURE of
HIV/AIDS.

What else has he told you? He has said a lot more, that will be released once
the CURE for HIV/AIDS is widely received.

What then do I aim to accomplish? The aim is seeking scientific assistance in
bringing the CURE to the millions of individuals who now need it and also to
those who will need it in the future. I am ready, willing and able to work with
any research institution to bring the CURE to fruition. Contact www.
ambushcuresaids.homestead.com. or vapalmer@bellsouth.net. Thank you and May
GOD continue to Bless America.
