AmFAR APOLOGIZES

In the April Catalyst, we published a story regarding the decision by AmFar (American Foundation for AIDS Research) to withdraw an ad that the Catholic League, and others, had protested. The ad in question was, “Prayer won’t cure AIDS – Research will.”

In a letter to Dr. Donohue, Jerome J. Radwin, the executive director and chief executive officer of AmFar, extended “his sincere apologies on behalf of the Foundation for any offense this campaign may have caused.” He also said that the original ad read, “Prayer alone won’t cure AIDS – Research will.” Someone changed the ad and that is why it was pulled.
