I think the Pope was pretty clear with what he stated.
Why is it now, all of a sudden, everyone is wondering
"What did he mean?"

Read what he said--- 1st steps in a case of a male prostitute
situation. PERIOD.

You know something, if I were a customer of a male prostitute,
I would think think think in the first place about engaging as a customer EVEN before I thought about how great this worker was to be so very "morally correct" and oh so thoughtful and nice to use a condom. 4 out of every 100 condoms have holes in them!

That means that 4 out of every 100 times an infected prostitute works will result in HIV transmission. Yet, that also means that 96 out of every time he works, he does not spread a killer STD. In the case of a male prostitute, it's totally better than going bear for all those 100 times! Ninety-six people were spared!

The half step before step one, though, is: Don't trust any of those stupid rubber things----if you're the customer! Respect yourself a little more than that.
