Catholic Church and Condoms
People can be so blinded by their beliefs (I don't exempt myself). Pope Benedict is reaffirming the Church's stand on prohibiting condom use, even in Africa where AIDS is the horror that keeps on giving. The article does point out that the Catholic Church is probably the largest private provider of AIDS care in the world... but why don't we take the simple available steps to prevent people from getting the disease in the first place?
