Sanders Jr. (pictured) of the Metropolitan Interdenominational Church (MIC) distributes condoms to church members. It seems that compromising firm religious principles in order to appease loosely morale members seems to be the new norm today. However, according to MIC leadership, the church has a different purpose in its new initiative. The goal is to prevent the spread of AIDS and HIV.
