Just to show how diluted the thinking process of even the best religious people is, Pope Francis says condom use to stop the spread of AIDS is not a “moral solution.”
Catholics are still clinging to the ancient rule of not intervening in “God’s plan” by using contraceptives.
As if a thin piece of latex could stop God.
It doesn’t really matter to Pope Francis that countless lives are saved each year by condoms, and that unwanted children is a huge problem all over the world.
Francis believes we have bigger problems, and AIDS shouldn’t even be on the docket right now.
The Pope admitted Monday that the issue of condom use within the church was a “controversial one,” because apparently not enough altar boys have herpes.
The church expects people who do not wants AIDS or children to simply not have sex.
With World AIDS Day being tomorrow, the Pope was grilled during a press conference aboard the papal plane, just after a visit to Africa.
The Pope, displeased with being asked such a question, went on to say that there were more important things to worry about right now.
Using issues like malnutrition, slave labor, lack water and arms trafficking, the Pope said this about condom use:
“When people are dying from lack of water and food… your question seems too narrow. The problem is bigger than that.”
What the Pope is saying is that AIDS is not a priority in 2015, at least not to him.
To the people who are currently living with HIV/AIDS, or to the people who have lost someone to the disease, the issue may be a little more important.
Way to show that Catholic compassion, Frank.
Thanks for the recommendation, but I think I will listen to my doctor.
