There's no beating around the bush on this one. The Pope's stance on condoms is immoral, stupid, and will directly cause many thousands, perhaps millions, of deaths in Africa and other parts of the world. By declaring, once again, that condoms are immoral and forbidden to Catholics under all circumstances, the Pope is writing the death warrants for untold innocent men, women and children around the world.
How can a man who is sworn to celibacy possibly understand real human sexuality?
How can he be so totally disconnected from reality that he doesn't see the incredible human suffering he is causing? How can the Pope, in the year 2009, not see what is right in front of his face? Social scientists have proved that condom use is one of the very best ways to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, and they have shown convincingly that abstinence programs have no usefulness whatsoever.
The modern Roman Catholic Church claims to be in touch with science. That's pure BS. They claim that science is responsible for the "what and how" and the Church is responsible for the "why". So, Pope, answer this: Why? Is your horror of sex just for its own sake so complete that you're willing to condemn innocent babies to die for it? Is sex so inherently sinful that it is only redeemed by the possibility of babies? So sinful that it is a capital crime?
Will the Pope go to the hospitals himself to watch the children die who might have grown up happy and healthy, but for his idiotic proclamations about the "morality" of using condoms?
I usually try to respect (though disagree) with other religious viewpoints, but today the Roman Catholic Church makes me sick. It is immoral to the core.
