Ratcheting Up the Millennium Development Goals

Katherine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, aware, perhaps, of the looming demise of that formerly grand institution, takes on her and her Constructed Faith System's greatest challenge yet: original sin.
One of the ways we Episcopalians do both is to raise awareness of and help fight human diseases that attack and ravage all those made in God’s image. For example, the Episcopal Church has led the way in the fight against AIDS and is currently working hard to provide people with the means to reduce or eradicate the scourge of malaria.

But I want to talk to you about a far deadlier health risk, a far greater medical disaster than any previously known in human history. This disease kills an estimated 60,000,000 people every year and no part of the world is safe from it, including our own. And this disease has a name.
