Re: wtf? PUT A BIBLE OVER YOUR PENIS, SAYS POPE
SOME THINGS NEED TO BE CLARIFIED TO THE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS.
1) There is no conclusive evidence that Condom's are the reason that people are having more casual sexual relationships. If anything the casual sex was there before AIDS, its just that the spread of aids has outlined and highlighted the fact. Casual sex is nothing new. At least not to the last 400 years.
2) The reason that People in Africa are still contracting aids at a huge rate is because they do not have access to free condoms. They dont have money to put food on the table, so where are they going to buy condoms? The world health organization has been punting for free condoms in Africa to help slow the spread of aids.
3) Now I am going to try to say this carefully so that the slower people in the room can understand.... Africans are not using condoms.... because they cannot afford them.... Therefor it is not that condoms are being used and aids is still spreading like a wildfire.... Its that they are not being used widely enough....
Yes Abstinence is the best policy but for Fuck Sakes teach abstinence after you teach sexual responsibility. Condoms are the compromise, abstinence is the non-negotiable extreme. Humans are far more likely to accept a compromise than they are to accept you pushing an ideal on them, that is just how shit works in this world.
Please learn to read, learn to comprehend, and learn to analyze a scenario objectively without your opinions, emotions and beliefs getting involved. No one here is asking you to turn your back on Jesus' teachings, A lot of those moral teachings are very relevant in todays day and age. But come on, the way Benedict said it is not on at all. You cannot say that Condoms make shit worse and expect rational people to not strike out and accuse him of being a moron.
Anyway if you dont get it, then there is not much more that can be said to convince you.
