Allucinating: he spoke against the use of preservatives as not only invain, but pejorative about aids epidemic problem.
Some ministers in France and Germany got quite disappointed of that and many people in Italy are disappointed about that, but not a single politician in Italy represented people's opinions in that FAKED DEMOCRACY.

The Pope says, "he has nothing to offer but the message of the Cross of Jesus Christ-- of peace, hope, justice, reconciliation and forgiveness."

What is Love?
What is peace?
What is Justice?
Can this be all dramatize? To make the miracles possible? and to believe someone who use the media, the authority, the image? Should we believe the people who are on the top? To be a Saints there a lot of examination to do to proclaim the sainthood of a saint? Then why treating a person a saint wherein he is not a saint? Is he going to save you? How do you know? Don't you believe in God and you are relying on that person for you to be saved? Now do you believe in God? or you believe in Pope? The Pope have not yet showed any sufferings? Only when he is in the bathroom to take the shit out? Choose God or Pope?

Your attention please, brethren!

Let me share with you my joy in recollecting that unforgettable and extraordinary day in my life on Holy Thursday, Chrismal Mass- March 20. 2008. God surprised me by receiving Holy Communion from His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI personally at St. Peter's Basilica. Words could hardly express my extreme happiness just like winning a jackpot in a lottery. I could still cry for joy in reminiscing how lucky I was! I felt as if I was high for Christ. That's the photo in my avatar. Thank you Lord again and again, for that precious and rare moment.

The truth, there is no higher than God... God is God... The Pope is not God... The Pope is only human and we cannot say that he is holy... He was elected by a group oh people to become a Pope... He was not chosen by God nor Godsend... God is the only holy...

meanwhile people have sex also in Africa and neither you or god will stop it, so while in EU condoms are available in Africa they are thwarted by the pope's propaganda and sexual diseases get hugely transmitted.
great! isn't it? damn...

another concern I have about preservatives in africa is that it smacks of neo-colonialism.
The West offers the black african white preservatives so in a sense millions are putting white dicks into black women . why not offer them BLACK preservatives so they can feel that they are putting black dicks in black women. Not a joke.
and my message to the pope is that faithfulness is not faith;
