Pope Benedict said in a new book that condom use can be used by male prostitutes seeking to stop the spread of AIDS. This “exception” is based on the notion that such sex is non-reproductive and thus the condom acts as “disease prevention” rather than contraception.
This is because contraception, according to him, is akin to murder. When asked about the churches stance on contraception and abortion, he said “How many children are killed who might one day have been geniuses, who could have given humanity something new, who could have given us a new Mozart or some new technical discovery?”
Hey, guess what, Mr. Pope? Sperm are NOT children, nor are eggs. (Nor, for that matter, is an embryo or fetus.) Pretty scary that someone who equates contraception to killing children has so much global sway. Guess it’s not surprising giving his heinous 2009 comment that condoms CONTRIBUTE to rather than HELP PREVENT the spread of AIDS.
So, I am wondering, can pedophiliac priests also wear condoms? Does he comment on THAT in the new book? And isn’t this RAMPANT problem more akin to “killing children” than using contraception for fuck’s sake?!?!?!
