Re: “Ruth Coker Burks, the cemetery angel

Though I loved this story- that doesn't mean I agree with it 100% nor should we. Though I am Muslim now, during the GRID period my family were atheists and heavily involved with Madalyn Murray O'Hara and her organization American Atheists and my parents led the Illinois chapter. This article intentionally tries to convey that only religious people feared HIV and this is a total lie. I remember being little and listen to talk after talk about gay people and GRID and how disgusting they were. People do not think this way now but I specifically remember a leader of American Atheists who had come to give a talk one day and mentioned her son who was dying and she kept making jokes about it. Everyone thought that way at the time. Not just religious people. And for that matter- it is rewriting history to say all gay men were in monogamous relationships and their lovers stood beside them to the end. If someone with Ebola or the Zika virus wanted to touch you today- would you let them? It was the same thing. It was brand new, inspired fear, and no one knew enough. So if you think only religious people had a problem with gay people you are both uneducated and delusional. "All" people were afraid- and used whatever their previous school of thought was to justify it. Religion, Non-religion, culture, and even science. Saying all of this does not take away from the truth of this article.
