Morford: Slap A Condom On The Vatican
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Friday, October 17, 2003 | Mark Mroford

Posted on 10/20/2003 7:46:42 AM PDT by presidio9

Edited on 04/13/2004 2:44:28 AM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

And then you hear the one about the "top Vatican official," one of those ultra-dour black-robed cardinals who never see daylight or the modern world or love, espousing the official Vatican line in a recent interview, claiming that condoms do not, in fact, prevent the transmission of the AIDS virus.

If the gay approach to AIDS is working, then why is the rate of infection up in the younger gay men. Why is syphillis infection up in the gay population overall? If condoms are working, why is this happening? Why in African nations that are starting to emphasize behavior and abstinence experiencing a downward trend in AIDS? Why in Islamic African nations, AIDS and STD rate is very low compared to free behavior African nations? The gay community can laugh and deride the Catholic Church, but in the end who is right and wrong falls on the gay community because they are the ones who will live with the disease caused by their own "freedom".

Moford's pissed becasue the Chruch is right. The only way to 100% prevent the spread of sexually transmitted AIDS is to not have sex.

Everyone from the horrified World Health Organization to your own grandmother knows that, unless they tear or are somehow misused, condoms have a nearly 100 percent success rate in preventing the transmission of STDs, including the virus that causes AIDS.
LOL! The folks at the San Francisco Chronicle are still in denial about the NIH composite study (June 2000) conclusion that condoms, even when properly used, had a 15% failure rate in preventing HIV transmission.

Which was the Cardinal's position all along. The liberal media has done its best to twist things around, but in the end what Cardinal Trujillo actually said is 100% true: using a condom will not guarantee that you won't get AIDS. The only sure-fire way to prevent AIDS is abstinance.

well..you can be a heroin junkie and a virgin and still get AIDS, but that's not what has Morford's rectum spasming.

Amazing. Miss Mofo has found someone (s)he hates even more than "BushCo". Notice the absence of "BushCo" references in this screed?

One is known by one's enemies. Orthodox Catholic that I am, I bear Miss Mofo's hatred, contumely, and bile as a badge of honour. Not that Miss Mofo knows anything of honour, mind...

This is about the same odds of hitting a cylinder with a bullet in it when playing Russian roulette. Aids is a fatal disease. Using a condom to prevent it is like playing Russian roulette in slow motion.

Verily, isn't it about time the world, not to mention God herself, let this one remaining Roman Empire crumble into dust?

Morford's main problem isn't that he hates and mocks the Catholic Church, which he assuredly does.

His main problem is he hates and mocks God and that's where all his hate and bile stem from.

If the word Catholic was changed to Islam and Cardinal to Ayatollah, Mofo would be out of a job by now.

Oh, I get it. It is the church to blame for the spread of AIDS, not the San Francisco homosexual lifestyle and bathhouses.

The Vatican just really, really loathes condoms.

Apperently, so do homosexuals that insist on "riding bareback" and spreading the disease using orifices not meant for intercourse.

And a slightly more rarified, but still rather broad group knows that the "somehow misused" occurrence in condom use is anywhere from 20 to 40 percent, depending on which study you prefer. And this number seems quite impervious to change following "condom education." So the "nearly 100 percent" hypothetical success rate isn't terribly relevent.

posting morford is like posting DU articles. its pretty pointless. what do we think he is going to say???

interestingly though...I noticed lately in the chron's online polls, the answers are getting a bit more conservative, or at least being freeped...

Many (but nowhere near all) practicing Catholics you know are far, far removed from Pope HQ, and practice their religion on their own terms, with reverence and progressive thought and inner fortitude, and love and latex and laughter and healthy doses of irony and perspective.

I imagine this was thrown in to appease the half dozen or so people in San Francisco who still admit to being Roman Catholic.

Catolicism is what the Pope and the Vatican say it is. If you are "practicing religion on your own terms" you are no longer a Catholic.

So Morford hates Catholics? What a shock! Well, at least he now has another target aside from Bush to vent his spleen over. This guy seems to be nothing more than a seething cauldron of hatred. Not a pretty picture, but, then again, it's the face of liberalism.

Good. Aside from the fact that I am a huge Yankees fan, I will be forever grateful for the fact that they spared us from ever hearing that gay slogan again. Had the Red Sox won, their fans would be repeating that for the rest of eternity.

No.

As a heterosexual, sex is something I do.

As a homosexual, sex is what he is.
