Nuclear Reaction to HLI Ad in Africa!
My Dear Friends,

I want to tell you about a most amazing project that HLI has initiated … and then I need your immediate help so HLI can spread this truly life-saving program all over Africa!

First, let me tell you about the project. Last week we got the attention of those who promote “King Condom” in Tanzania (East Africa) … big time! We did so when our HLI affiliate erected three billboards that featured a skeleton on a bright red background as the attention-grabber (image courtesy of American Life League) and used this title – written in Swahili so that the local population could read it – to drive home the truth about condom failure: “Faithful Condom User”
[click here to see a picture of the billboard].

One large billboard was placed near a main road in the capital city of Dar es Salaam while two smaller versions were put up elsewhere in the city.

While we presumed that this message and graphic would be controversial, we didn’t expect the international condom lobby to go utterly ballistic over it!

On Tuesday, the main newspaper in Tanzania, The Citizen, ran a story on our billboards. The article described people at “high-profile” anti-life organizations like United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS, Family Health International, Population Services International and others as “up in arms” … and government officials as “jolted.” It said that the chairperson of the Tanzania Commission for AIDS was “furious” at HLI’s billboards and told of meetings that were held with members of the Prime Minister’s office to discuss an “urgent intervention” to suppress and censor our message!

When the power structure of an entire country is rallied against us, that’s a sure sign that we’re right!

Our billboards are telling the people the TRUTH about condoms … and the heralds of the culture of death can’t stand it!

Now that you see the impact our billboards are having, I need you to send HLI the largest gift you can so we can spread this program to every one of the 55 nations on the continent of Africa!

The cost to do so is prohibitive … $6,000 per country (that’s how much we sent Emil Hagamu, our man in Tanzania, to erect the three billboards) … times 55 countries … equals $330,000! That money will enable HLI to erect three billboards in each country.

Although I’d dearly love to raise all $330,000 today, I’m not counting on that. So my short-term goal is to raise $24,000 so we can put up billboards in Kenya and Cameroon (the next two countries on our list) … and get billboards in the works for two more countries. Our affiliates are already working on the logistics.

I’m also frantically working to recruit 25,000 PRAYER WARRIORS who will help get the ball rolling by hitting their knees and praying for the success of this project.

To succeed, I need your help today … RIGHT NOW in fact! Specifically:

  1. Send HLI the largest donation you can out of the generosity of your heart!
  2. Pray the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel for the protection of our HLI affiliate in Tanzania from any retaliation … one of the billboards has been vandalized and legal action has been threatened … including jail time!

Both your money and your prayers are needed NOW … and both are deeply appreciated!

Spreading HLI’s counter-cultural message of abstinence and fidelity will literally de-fang the AIDS monster, de-throne “King Condom”, and give the people of Africa a fighting chance to take back their society and their pro-life culture from the powerful international anti-life lobby that seeks to impose its failed method of stopping the spread of AIDS.

Just click here and follow the instructions to send your contribution.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer,
President, Human Life International

  1. It is obvious that you know little about Tanzania or the Tanzanian culture. The capital of Tanzania is not Dar es Salaam, it’s Dodoma a much smaller city in Central Tanzania. Dar es Salaam is the largest city and is where many of the Ministers of Government have their offices.

    The other part of this is that you can pass out a million condoms in Tanzania and few would ever be used, it’s seen by most of the males there as something un-manly. Actually it’s rather common knowledge that the prostitutes there get paid extra if they don’t demand that their male clients use a condom. I once sat one Sunday afternoon in Dodoma several years ago enjoying some idle conversation with some members of Parliament and some religious leaders of that part of the country. The MPs were asked what they had done recently to sujpport the HIV problem in Tz; and they replied that they had that week tabled (meaning put in the hopper) a resolution which would purchase and dispense condoms. The Lutheran Bishop sitting in on these conversations became very incensed and stood and pointed his finger in the chest of the MP, telling him “You’re a Wahaha just like I am, and you know full well that if you distributed a million condoms to men, that very few would ever be used!” Red faced the MP confessed that this was most probably true and was common knowledge. The Bishop then retorted, “Then use the money more wisely!!”. Two men who understood the culture there, unlike you.

    The signs which you posted were counter cultural which is why there are high government officials in opposition to this (if they actually are), they would see this as unusual nonsense. The first thing you need to learn is that while there are 55 nations in Africa, there are thousands of cultures, each quite different in their thinking and attitude towards the other sex and to sex in general. Learn them and you might be able to make some headway in the HIV pandemic. There’s a lot of wheel spinning there, but boy do they feel good but do little, and you might be at the top of the list
