    Would have been better or worse if I said,

    How many different offensive nuances can you dig out of that one?
    Did I misinterpret something or was I correct?

    Don't know.

    Does "***" = "have sex with"?

    What kind of a mind do you have, anyway?

    Everyone knows why the muslims have those religious objections to eating pork.

    They've always known cannibalism spreads kuru.

    Were you implying that Muslims have sex with camels? If you were not, then you have my apologies.

    I'm stating the facts.

    It's a lie to tell people condoms are "safe".

    It's accurate to tell them it's safer to use them than it is to run naked through the briar patch.

    Of course I wasn't implying that.

    Who could imagine a camel wanting to have sex with a muslim? They'd never consent, it would have to be rape.

    How is it a lie to tell them that they are safe? Them being safe has no bearing on how effective they are. They are the safe alternative to not using a condom at all.

    And no, your hyperbolic analogy is not accurate.

    Ain't a concise and accurate statement of the circumstances a wonderful thing to behold?
    Lool get aload of this guy, he thinks condoms are just some placebo affect. What a dork. That would explain your genital warts.

    Because I know what the word "safe" means.

    Because I posted a little word movie, just for you, to illustrate the difference between "safe" and "safer". Since that movied didn't work, please refund me the price of your ticket.

    And at the most, it's a paraboic analogy. Falling bodies in constant gravity fields do not follow hyperbolas.

    Re: Concerns Over Popes Rejection of Condoms for Combating AIDS

    Actually I will agree with Scarecrow here on the wording. Condoms themselves are not safe, it is the proper use of condoms that makes it safer than not using them.

    Afterall safe implies that you can't get pregnant, catch STDS, etc. at least in my mind.

    Proper condom use is waaaaaay safer than not using one, but you are not 100% safe.

    Either way, I would prefer educating Africans on proper condom use rather than telling them to abstain.
