Pope Says Condoms to Stop AIDS May Be Acceptable

NY times:

'The pope made clear that he considered the use of condoms a last resort and not a way to prevent conception. The example he gave of when they could be used was in the case of male prostitutes.'

'Amid his vigorous defense of the church in contemporary society, Benedict also acknowledged some of the church’s failings, like in the sexual abuse crisis, which he calls “a volcano of filth” sent by the devil. He pointed to a “readiness for aggression” among those who criticized him for revoking the excommunication of a bishop who denied the scope of the Holocaust.'

'Bout time the Pope finally admitted - to some degree - that condoms are a must in fighting AIDS. Its a small, tiny step but at least its a step.

Glad the Pope caught up to the 20th century. Imagine if he could catch up with the 21st!

Not a Catholic are you? Cause, I mean that's kind of a ridiculous reaction to have to the Pope saying such a thing

I'm not Catholic, and am not going to congratulate or applaud him for finally coming around to the idea that condoms might be okay.

Are Catholoics suppose to applaud those that have their head in the sand?

The cynic in me thinks he's only doing this so the Catholic church doesn't lose the converts they are making in areas with high levels of AIDS.

I wouldn't be surprised.

Rather than let myself get worked up over this in this particular venue and potentially offend people I quite like, I'm just going to ignore this thread and go about my merry way.

As a (non-practising) Catholic, I had the very same reaction to this. What do you find so ridiculous about it?

Wow, even more out of touch with reality than I thought.

Fuck the Pope.

And fuck any cardinal, bishop, deacon, or priest who knowingly re-assigned a 5-year old's dick-fondler priest to another church or diocese as part of church cover up "rehabilitation".

The only thing those officials should be practising is how to receive a large prison inmate's penis in his rectum without lubrication. Thrice daily.
