The Vatican is telling Africans, Asians and South Americans that condoms don't stop HIV, and that some condoms are laced with HIV. All because of some half-cocked idea that sex is bad. I'd like to see them try telling people that here. There is plenty of evidence that condoms help reduce the risk of HIV infection (CDC-Fact Sheet and USAID Global Health: HIV/AIDS, Technical Areas, Condoms, HIV/AIDS & Condoms)
Religion is one hell of a dangerous meme, and I wish I believed that Hell existed just so I could imagine the Pope's face when he turns up there, and not at the pearly gates.
