Cardinal Says Condom lesser of two evil's

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060421/...atican_condoms

Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini said that condoms are the less of two evil's and that aids is a more serious issue than condoms. He supports condom use in some cases.

"Others include Belgian Cardinal Godfried Danneels and Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan of Mexico, who has said condoms could sometimes be condoned, such as when a woman cannot refuse the sexual advances of her HIV-positive husband."

I think the church should change and stop saying condoms are against the religion. They save lives and unwanted pregnancy's.

As a practicing Catholic myself I agree with you. I think it's terrible to forbid something that stops the spread of AIDS! They also help prevent abortion by preventing unplanned pregnancies.

I've learned something though, abortion is sexy. If the Catholic Church wants to gain sex appeal, it should support abortion.
I can just hear the Pope saying, "Virgin Mary should have aborted fetus."

I think that might've crossed the line. No, I don't actually think Mary should've aborted Jesus. Furthermore, I do not mean to disrespect anyone's beliefs.

Even though I'm not a Catholic (since I, for the most part, respect the Catholic Church, if I ever do end up picking a denomination within the Christian community it'll be Catholicism) I've always thought the church should provide contraceptives for at-risk individuals.

I'm so going to hell for this post. Anyone wanna join me?

The Catholic Church is obviously pro-AIDS, I hardly see how they should lecture people for being pro-Fetus-Death.

Pro-Fetus-Death that's the greatest thing I've heard all day.

The Catholics in the 3rd world follow these condom/pill rules because they're too poor to have access to birth control in the first place.

The Catholics in the first world don't give a shit about what the Church says about birth control.

So in effect, nobody gives a shit.

I have a really cool Mormon friend. She's a U2 fan and claims that she's the only Democratic Mormon on the planet. She's active with the African Well Fund. We also have Mormon Interferencers. So I wouldn't want to stereotype them all.

Harry Reid Dem NV = Mormon

Mormons, like Jews have had to learn to survive with their minority status
They can have strong held beliefs and be tolerant.
Tom Cruise and the Scientologists are no real threat.


Now the fundies and the Evangelical Christians seem to have more in common with the hard-core Muslims and want to enforce their belief systems on others.





How is that for painting with a broad brush?
I really do not belief in this labeling and these generalizations.

Are there any Catholics that still buy into this anymore? I've never met one.

It always seems like it's the celibate ones preaching about sex...
