Pope stands firm against condoms in... Africa

http://www.reuters.com/article/homep...6617._CH_.2400

Simply unbelievable.

If there's one thing we can't accuse the Catholic Church of, it's being flimsy with their principles. Too bad people are going to have to die because the Church just won't listen to common sense.

That's still more sensible statement by pope in terms of protecting one of Ten Commandments in Roman Catholic church versus how to fight HIV by SA's politicians: http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_i...4966360191B243

Yes, Fight religion! Go on and Bash the Bishop!

I mean...ooeerrr....

Quite frankly, I don't know why the media bother to report what the pope says. We might as well ask them to start including world political views from Brazilian Rainforest Witch Doctors - they're equally qualified to comment on such matters. This is what galls me most about the religious arguments: the religious claim they have the answers and that everyone else has to prove their viewpoint if they don't agree with the religion. They take it as read that they are correct without producing a single scrap of scientifically irrefutable evidence.

Oh what's the point, this idea gets recycled endlessly on this and other fora
