Pope’s condom statements taken out of context

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

The recent flap concerning Pope Benedict’s re-statement of the traditional Catholic teaching, that artificial contraception is immoral and ultimately impractical, is instructive to the way secular society views people, and how Catholicism views the human race. His exact words were, “You can’t resolve it with the distribution of condoms, addressing HIV/AIDS will require a ‘two-fold’ solution of ‘spiritual and human awakening’ and ‘friendship” for those who suffer.” Further, Benedict continues that what is needed is “education about people’s responsibility in the use of sexuality” and the “essential role of marriage and family.”
