    Yeah--he could lead them in prayer--...keep having sex outside of the bond of marriage and pray that the little latex prophylactic baking in the African sun holds up. Great plan.

    Pope Palpatine would never advocate the use of condoms. And honestly, why should he have to? Every religion has their own set of ideals and beliefs.

    What mixed message? If one is going to have sex use a condom to prevent the spread of HIV.

    I know you are just going to say "Don't have sex" but I doubt people are going to stop having sex.

    The Church attempts to explain why sex should be reserved for marriage. It's not like it just says. Don't do it. It's a theological principle that respects the dignity of the human person.

    Seculars supporting condoms just want to toss money and rubber at the problem and don't care for the PEOPLE.

    According to Catholics, but who says that they are right?

    Um...what? What exactly is that supposed to mean? Condoms aren't 100% effective, but they do help.

    They have been doing that what for a couple of thousand years now. How has it worked out so far? I know condoms are helpful in preventing the spread of HIV.

    Follow Catholic teaching on the matter and marry someone who also follows the teachings--you are 100% guaranteed to be AIDS free (barring a rape or a horrible needle-stick accident)

    You mean, by placing an unusual amount of importance on sperm?

    Yeah those horrible needle-stick accidents are a bitch. I didn't get AIDS from it, but I got hepatitis from it.

    Last time I ever wore sandals on a beach in California.

    Are you supporting their teaching, or introducing confusion by suggesting a piece of latex will keep someone "safe" while engaging in risky behaviors?
