Default Did he say this bull**** from his infallibility chair?

There is now no reason to give Catholicism any more credence than Scientology.

Sure, we can prove that Jesus lived while Xenu is a character concocted by science fiction writer. But we can prove that condoms prevent the spreading of STDs, and I don't see why blatantly flaunting bad science is any more respectable than inventing an alien overlord. It's always bad when people let religious ideology influence science and in this case it's downright dangerous. Many countries in Africa are facing AIDS epidemics (something like 50% of South Africa has HIV or some such cry statistic), they don't need this crazy old man with his stupid hats telling them to stop wearing condoms. "Abstinence education" DOESN'T WORK. Bristol Palin, a high school drop-out, has managed to figure this out but the guy with the key to Heaven apparently doesn't get it.

I don't see the big deal personally.

Religions are outdated, what else is new? Who really goes to the pope for their sex advice?

The people stupid enough to follow the pope blindly -- especially on matters like this -- have no excuse for the consequences they pay for their stupidity. Go natural selection.

Aids is bad but wearing condoms is worse.

Yeah i saw this the other day and it just made me laugh. I swear there aren't dumber people by and large than religious people. They are the worst aspect of the Republican party, and their archaic beliefs are such a joke in today's world.

No sex before marriage. No condoms. No abortions even if the parents don't want the kid. Pretending to put Creationism next to Science. Anti stem cell research. Its bad enough they end up duped by TV evangelists performing TV miracles

I swear religion does more harm than good in today's world.


btw i also recently read that D.C.- Baltimore has a 3% AIDS/STD population.
