Sorry for the inflamatory title, but Violet Socks points outs:
Actually thereâ€™s a rumor afloat that the Vatican may be about to drop its absolute prohibition on condoms and allow their use for AIDS prevention â€” but only for AIDS prevention; certainly not for contraception. The Vatican health minister says this is a â€œvery difficult and delicate topic.â€ Think about that. The Church claims to be the moral arbiter for a large percentage of the worldâ€™s population. Thereâ€™s a little latex thingy that can prevent the spread of a horrific disease that kills millions, destroys lives, leaves children orphaned â€” and this is a tough call for them.
This is one of the dumbest positions the Catholic Church has ever taken, and we have a lot to choose from! C’mon, Catholics, get rid of this ridiculous notion that there is something immoral about birth control. The fact of the matter is, there is something deeply immoral about giving people any reason to not protect themselves from STD’s with condoms.
Let’s compare and contrast: prevented unwanted conception vs. people DYING FROM FUCKING AIDS. The Pope is dumb.
