In his message for World AIDS Day, Cardinal Barragan made a clear reference to condoms, saying information campaigns should not be "based on policies that foster immoral and hedonistic lifestyles and behavior, favoring the spread of the evil."

By not supporting the use of condoms and not advocating the use of condoms as one of the preventative measures I would say that the Catholic Church is helping the spread of a deadly disease," Morten Rostrup, president of the international council of Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), said in Nairobi.

I don't think so.

Criticizing the Catholic Church in this regard is sort of like criticizing General Motors for failing to build a car that can be driven safely by a motorist with a blood-alcohol level of .20%.

even some quarters of the Catholic Church criticized the Vatican on Tuesday for defending its opposition to condoms.

Catholic for Free Choice has no affiliation with the Catholic Church

Abstinence works every time it's tried. Not only for pregnancy, but AIDS, too.

Thanks for that reference list!

A bump for all life.

And a question for these questionable Catholics?

Exactly why did God create man -- male and female?

"It's very disappointing because the Catholic Church's irrational stance on condoms undermines the very good work that the Catholic Church does with regards to caring for people with HIV...," said Nathan Geffen in South Africa.
True compassion for those with HIV never entails caring for their physical needs at the expense of their spiritual needs.
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self? (Lk 9:25)

Catholics for a Free Choice
A pro-abortion group who is not affiliated with the Catholic Church. If these people don't like where the Church stands, why are they still calling themselves Catholic.
