The Catholic Church Endorses Barebacking
The Catholic Church released a highly scientific report that stated that condoms do not prevent the spread of HIV. In an interview, one of the Vatican's most senior cardinals, Alfonso Lopez Trujillo states, "[T]he Aids [sic] virus is roughly 450 times smaller than the spermatozoon. The spermatozoon can easily pass through the 'net' that is formed by the condom." You can tell from his statement that the Holy Mother Church has been doing some serious scientific research into this issue. The Vatican's Pontifical Council for the Family suggests that people not use condoms as they are actually helping to spread the virus. The Archbishop of Nairobi, Raphael Ndingi Nzeki is quoted as saying, "Aids[sic]...has grown so fast because of the availability of condoms." There is even some suggestion that condoms are being laced with the virus.

Of course, the Catholic Church's statements are about as logical as saying that the Earth is the centre of the universe or that a grumpy person is out of sorts because his humours are out of balance. Given the Church's track record with matters of science, you'd think they would have learned to just stick to the theological. This whole thing would be really funny if there were not so many people who unquestionably believe everything the Church tells them.

Not surprisingly, the World Health Organization is a little upset with the Church. According to their slightly more scientific report, unsafe sex is the primary cause of the spread of HIV in Africa. And with 29.4 million people in Africa living with HIV/AIDS, the Church's statements are criminally, morally and intellectually negligent. The U.N. has released a report stating that every 14 seconds a young person becomes infected with HIV. If you're an average reader, about eight young people were infected in the time it took you to read this entry. Clearly we must increase the education, starting with the young people. Irresponsible statements — like those made by the Catholic Church — and archiac beliefs are only going to make matters worse.
