papal obfuscated audacity...

Pope claims condoms 'could make African AIDS crisis worse'

the quote:
Pope Benedict XVI today added to the controversy over the Catholic church's stance on condoms when he argued that they were not the answer to Africa's fight against HIV and Aids and could even make the problem worse.

in the New York Times editorial today:
Pope Benedict XVI has every right to express his opposition to the use of condoms on moral grounds, in accordance with the official stance of the Roman Catholic Church. But he deserves no credence when he distorts scientific findings about the value of condoms in slowing the spread of the AIDS virus.

the main tool that the church in the Middle Ages used to keep people under control was ignorance. he's in a third world country with a population that has a very low literacy rate. he must feel like he's in his heaven...

he's actually an idiot - someone who is too stupid to know he's ignorant.
