I'll BET he wants male prostitutes to use condoms--that'll protect a lot of the church hierarchy from getting infected.

Is it possible even NaziRatzi has a conscience? Probably not. I suspect the thoughts of all the African dead he has created with his insane prohibition are disturbing his sleep, making the donning of the Bob Mackie gowns & the Blahniks uncomfortable.He is a foul-smelling boil on the butt of humanity & this grudging acceptance of reality in no way redeems him.
He should be indicted for crimes against humanity.

No, dear, cpeter is not an RCCult priest. You?
Now that your pimp in chief has ok'd condoms, just think of all the pedophiles who can safely rape children w/out leaving any evidence! Bet that makes you happy, freak!

Gee, Popey. What took you so long?

As usual, the Vatican's about thirty years behind the current cultural climate.

You'll have to ask the pope, he's molested more than his fair share of young boys.

I guess this not only confirms those rumors of the Pope's semi secret, Vatican boyfriend (of age, thank gawd,) but indicates the younger man is poz.

And when the RCC gets around to apologizing in another fifty years for its decades of defaming glbt people we can all chip in to buy the then Pope an expensive, pointy hat, a flaming purse and some Prada shoes.

So he'll allow homosexuals to use condoms while still heading an organisation that promotes the spread of AIDS in Africa to everyone else?

If ever you wanted evidence that that catholic church is a cult all you ever need is to look at how detatched the church heirarchy are from reality. At least Jim Jones only killed 1000 people.

pope said something can be 'justified' you say.
First of all, how is some so-called Christian 'leader' in a fish hat (honoring the pagan deity Dagon) justified to tell anyone what The Lord would want one to do or not? Is that pagan Egyptian obelisk made to honor Osiris and his penis that stands in St. Peter's Basilica justified?
The Bible says call no man 'Father' except Father God, so how is anyone Justified in calling someone 'Father' as the Catholics do with their preists/popes?
In the Catholic church's own catechism books they claim they were 'Justified' in changing the true seventh day Sabbath (friday sundown to saturday sundown) to Sunday. Where do they claim they get the Justification to change God's 4th Commandment (Exodus 20, Hebrews 4 etc.) Law?? They claim that the pope is 'infallible', can do no wrong. Nixon literally said the same about a president like himself.

And that whole history of the Inquisition, the mass murder and extreme torture of those who didn't believe exactly as the RC church said- that was Justified apparently, no pope authorizing such atrocities was ever 'excommunicated' as far as I know. By the way, where the *Hell do they get the notion they have the power to gatekeep someone's ability to communicate with God?!!?

some fool said "if you get AIDS its cuz GOD wanted u 2, lol"
No, God did want that bio-engineered disease to be deployed upon the world by the sick rotten population control b*stards who also push us all into their 'New World Order' scientific dictatorship. www.AIDSbioWar.com www.OriginOfAIDS.com

Honey, I have no love for the RCC but I'm not buying your mythology either.

Media has once again miscontrued the Pope's comments. He did not, I repeat, did not change the stance on contraception with his comment.

He simply gave a "personal opinion" on a serious matter. To think that this is a change to the Church's 2000 year doctrine is ridiculous and a clear lie from the Media.

Church teaches about Chastity, Sacramental Marriage, Unity, Charity, Compassion, and the Sanctity of Life. Why not report on these values instead of taking any little opportunity to showcase misunderstood observations.

pbfa, I haven't lived through a whole lot of popes, but this one has to be one of the worst! Wouldn't surprise me that if someday, far in the future, he'll be dubbed an "anti-pope".

I fully agree - there will come a time when the stupid RC church acknowledges that for some people homosexuality is perfectly normal because God made them that way.

So, once again, the RC church will have egg on its face.

This is why I can't find any church to go to. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against condoms. What I do have a problem with is the general inconsistency in every church's doctrine. So do you go to hell for using condoms or not? I guess it depends whether you do it before or after whoever is in charge gets around to making the decision.
