Florida agency urges citizens to “answer Jesus’ call”

The New York Times reports today that:

The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida is asking the Florida Department of Health to recall an AIDS information brochure that includes biblical references and tells people to “answer Jesus’ call” by reaching out to people with H.I.V. and AIDS.

The brochure, “A Christian Response to AIDS,” carries the department logo and includes quotations of Scripture and images of Jesus healing the sick. It refers to biblical passages for people seeking more information on “human suffering and its relationship to God.” (Thanks to Carrie for the link.)
