From the article: His comments followed a BBC documentary in which he said the Catholic Church "advises against people infected with HIV wearing contraceptives".
Oh. My. God. Must be something in the holy water that makes their brains degenerate... Heaven help us.
Your condoms are a holy (see hole-y) riot.
Give us this day our daily condom
Which protects us apparently from nothing...
Papertiger, the author ot that comment is is the lady you need to compliment and to whom you should direct your Pave inquiries. (Yes that is THE Valerie.)
DF can we clone you? I baptized my monitor in coffee when I saw the "collection".
THE unique VALkyrie:
Why would you want a clone when the original is available?
And but, but but...I believe you told me once that you wouldn't visit the dacha BEFORE your morning coffe?
Shall I add a disclaimer somewhere?
Let me see... Spilled liquids and cloning right? Okay, that should go as "Don't expose the frogman to bright lights, don't wet him down and ABOVE ALL don't feed him after Midnight"
Kingston Falls, here I am.
The more I read about Catholicism the more my self hatred grows. What in the hell does the Catholic Church really think it's going to accomplish by [i]dissuading against[/i] people with HIV and AIDS from wearing condoms? Are they just trying to get the sinners to hell that much quicker? I'm just thankful that I'm not a very good Catholic; it lessens my culpability somewhat.
Maybe the church should be cleaning it's own house by coming down on some of these pedophile priests rather than spreading the message that condoms are for the wicked and making edicts against Israelis defending themselves.
On second thought, maybe I could scrap Catholicism altogether and just convert to Judaism. Does anyone know if they're still drinking the blood of Christian babies?
Children ride faster when they wear bicycle helmets. People drive faster when they wear seatbelts. Police officers are braver when they have bullet resistant vests. Tank crews are more bold in battle because they have 11 inches of steel in front of them.
The sexual revolution began when antibiotics could cure syphillis, and hit the brakes when HIV began taking its toll.
Condoms provide about 90% protection from HIV. On the other hand, if the risk per sexual contact is lower, then people will engage in sexual contact more often. In fact people will tend to have 10 times as much sex if they think that sex is 1/10th as risky. If they think there might be something behind this alarm, they may lower their risk meter, achieving two goals: less risky behavior, and less acceptance of immoral behavior. Who know, the Catholic Church may even achieve a reawakening of virtue among Catholics~!
Your entry will be held for review before publication and may be rejected. Understand that I moderate as time permits, so publication will be delayed for a random thus unpredictable amount of time: between seconds to hours—or even days at worst.
An email address is required, but will not be published.
You cannot subscribe to notifications of follow-up comments.
You cannot set your own avatar, name and location: generic versions of these will be published with your comment.
You cannot contact members via private messages and access their public profiles.
Your comment cannot exceed 300 characters.
You can only write plain text. To create paragraphs, press Enter twice (while the textbox has the focus, otherwise pressing Enter will post the comment)
All HTML tags will be stripped upon posting your comment, as will anything that even remotely looks like a URL.
Hey now! The tags stripping & links munching little helpers (let's call them Muncher and Stripper and not mind how wrong that sounds) are ferocious. I bred them that way. If you receive a nasty validation error or half your comment vanishes, something has triggered them, and they answer with full aggression, not 'micro' ones. Try and reformulate your text to appease them (for instance, beware of copy/pasting from Word or another web page). Use the preview to confirm you pass by Muncher and Stripper unmolested (now that didn't sound any better)
Stripper (oh dear, oh dear) will put a ✂ in place of anything that looks like a link—and he has about half the subtlety of a bombing raid over Dresden. (but makes for it with twice the hostility) Do.use.the.preview, even if you don't think you've inserted a link, for he may disagree and he's not open to negotiation.
You cannot edit your entry once submitted. Use the preview before posting. Really.
I may unpublish any comment I deem inappropriate. You may ask for any comment to be edited or removed, including one of your own, if you have a valid reason. Exert your better judgment on what constitutes a valid reason before asking. (slandering or "doxxing" a real person would be one, for example, while critic or mockery is not.)
