Getting away from the Muslim faith for once...
 
...jesus, this is just so outdated it beggars belief:

Pope Benedict XVI has said that handing out condoms is not the answer in the fight against HIV/Aids

oh, yeah, that's really helpful Benedict!

/golfclap

He may of well just said, "Don't worry if you have aids and you've passed HIV onto other people, including your kids... money, medicine and prevention won't help you... God will. Just pray a bit more and when you die your agonising death, you'll be happy to know that all will be forgiven and you can live out eternity in bliss."

The solution lies in a "spiritual and human awakening" and "friendship for those who suffer"

What a load of twaddle. Even the Italian Catholics don't like him but we can get condoms here. Not free and not that cheap either but readily available.

Is somewhat milder than what some of his representatives in Africa preach, that wearing condoms causes AIDS.

Yeah, like choir boys don't know about condoms, hhmmmmm.:sneaky:

It's totally ridiculous.

He doesn't want Africans to have condoms where AIDS is rife yet Italians can have perfectly legal abortions which is a more churchy controversial argument.

I see no sense in any of it.

Confucious he say:

He that looks for sense in religion is looking for a needle in a facepack....

I usually avoid religious comments but since I'm living admist many Catholics, regular Pope news and The Vatican City, I couldn't not comment on this thread.

Confucius or Confucious?

If 50 million people believe a foolish thing, it's still a foolish thing.

Why is it; when religion ruled the world, they called it the dark ages?

I was forced into Catholicism at an early age......I am now agnostic.
They don't half keep changing the goal posts that mob;

Fish on a Friday,Hat to chapel, only speak to the Don in Latin and risk hell fire and brimstone with a do not pass go ticket to the front row at the bonfire in Hades if you failed to appear on a Sunday.....so what now???

Eat what you like, wear what you like ,speak in any tongue you like(except forked).You can even choose the Saturday night option on Mass without being condemned to Hell(Clearly His Popliness hasn't factored in the number of Pop Idol fans among his sheep) to facilitiate a lie in on a Sunday morning(no shagging your partner though unless you wish to procreate)


Oh yeh and what about......don't prevent the further spread of fatal disease in Africa by providing condomes;do keep setting up Missionary outposts and taking a collection from the poorest people in the world.His Popliness would like another Botticelli or a few cwt of gold bars to gather dust in the Vatican........ update the Art collection while another Aids baby dies or another famine or flood *****s up another poverty stricken country of committed Catholics..............
