[SIZE=2]En Route To Africa, Pontiff Promotes Abstinence As The Way Forward In Fight Against Disease[/SIZE]

[/B]B [/B] Pope Benedict XVI said Tuesday that the distribution of condoms is not the answer in the fight against AIDS in Africa.

Benedict has never before spoken explicitly on condom use although he has stressed that the Roman Catholic Church is in the forefront of the battle against AIDS. The Vatican encourages sexual abstinence to fight the spread of the disease.

“You can’t resolve it with the distribution of condoms,” the pope told reporters aboard the Alitalia plane headed to Yaounde, Cameroon. “On the contrary, it increases the problem.”

Some priests and nuns working with victims of the AIDS pandemic ravaging Africa question the church’s opposition to condoms.

The pope also said that he intends to make an appeal for “international solidarity” for Africa in the face of the global economic downturn.

He said that while the church does not propose specific economic solutions, it can give “spiritual and moral” suggestions.

Describing the current crisis as the consequence of “a deficit of ethics in economic structures,” the pope said, “It is here that the church can make a contribution.”

Benedict’s seven-day pilgrimage will take him to Cameroon and Angola.

Africa is the fastest-growing region for the Roman Catholic Church.

Benedict has another potentially controversial trip planned this spring. As CBS Radio News correspondent Robert Berger reports in World Watch, the pope is to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories at the beginning of May - and relations between the Vatican and the Jewish state are strained.

Sigh !

He’s right, the best way is to castrate the males so they can’t breed.

The pope is wrong, condoms don’t “Increase Problem” Of AIDS".

The Pope is a cunt but what else would you expect from a former Nazi?

The pope is a moron! People will not stop fucking, no matter what, and if they do everyone will die out.

Condoms are currently the ONLY way of preventing HIV/AIDS except from not fucking, but thats a biological necessity for the survival of any mammal.

The pope is spreading STD’s. Please carpet bomb the Vatican. -.-

a lot of HIV/AIDS is spread during civil wars when soldiers rape women, so in this respect the pope has a point.

but generally people should have the right to choose condoms or not, you can’t let a man who never had sex tell you what to do!!!

And condoms SPREAD AIDS how?

And condoms SPREAD AIDS how?

of course condoms dont spread AIDS but if a “soldier” is going to rape a woman he is not going to give a shit about passing on diseases, that’s all I meant.

Can you give me some evidence of widespread rape amongst soldiers on civillians recently or is this just some pathetic excuse to try and justify the Pope being responsible for millions of deaths in Africa by telling the God fearing Catholics over there they will burn in hell if they have protected sex?

I am not defending the pope nor am I some religious nut, far from it.
There is plenty of evidence that rape is used against women in civil wars.
I’m not saying its the number 1 cause of HIV, but it’s a cause.

I also said that no one should take sex and family planning advice from a man who has never had sex.

yes condoms spread AIDS in some countries, coz they have a single condom for whole year for all holes :smiley:

Was he an actual Nazi? I knew he was German, but wasn’t sure if he was a Nazi or not. This is ridiculous either way, and just proves how religion is a big ploy.

The pope is just a big dummy head.

he was a member of hitler youth

What a fucking moron.

Pope’s giving sex ed lessons. That’s fuckin’ brilliant!

It’s the only way a Catholic priest can get a room of young boys all together at once.

if the pope says it it’s fucking true, you people should show a little respect!

The pope touched me when I was little. :frowning:

you should feel honored, The Pope chose YOU over all those other little boys, it’s just a testiment to how awesome you are!
