    The pope needs to be kicked in the ass for what he did.
    The Pope cannot tell people to use condoms even though they might get AIDS. He has to tell them how to completely avoid getting AIDS. Let the scientists do what they do and let the Pope do what Popes do. The only people who have died of AIDS are people who did not take the Pope's strict advice.

    My basic problem with religion, it cancels out logical thinking for ancient beliefs.. there is a reason why we do research and collect data, to figure out what works and what doesn't.. and we DO know god cannot prevent the spread of STD's or will stop pregnancies from happening, it may work a very small percentage.

    With the same logic you can have a person saying that seat belts doesn't work and the only safe thing is never ride a car. Also the problem is that a lot of "good" catolics get AIDS because their husbands/or wifes have affairs without using condoms.

    That would be the only guaranteed way to avoid a fatal car crash.

    Would you like to back that up with a source?

    Which wouldn't have happened if they had followed the advice of the Pope.

    How could people for one second think the Pope could condone condemns? He can't.

    We have no restictions regarding race, color, ect ...

    We have members from all walks of life. In fact, the LDS church has members in almost every country around the world (there are some exceptions).

    I'm not a Catholic. I survived a year of education at a Catholic school. The Pope doesn't have to condone condoms but he does not need to speak out against them.

    He is make a bad situation worse by speaking out.

    And Battlestar Galactica too, no thank you very much.

    By the way, you don't make mormonism sound normal, you make it sound creepy. Like, "We're in your company, we're in your school, we're in your city councel, we're everywhere...everywhere!... hahahahahah..."

    That was very common in the late 1800s in places like Minnesota.

    Being Mormon is quite excellent. If you are curious about it, go to a mormon church and sit through Sacrement.

    You'll find it enlightning.
