Soapbox

HIV/Aids is a tragedy that cannot be overcome through the distribution of condoms, which can even increase the problem.

Ok, I know religion is a taboo subject, however, this was a quote from Pope Benedict while in Africa.  Seriously? condoms can increase the spread of HIV and Aids?  I don’t think so, there is no scientific evidence supporting that statement, while there is evidence supporting the fact that condoms protect against HIV and Aids.  I can’t believe he said this in Africa;  where 22 Million people have HIV or Aids.  Yes, we all know abstinence is the only sure-fire way to prevent the spread, but let’s be realistic here.  (Stepping off my Soap Box)

  2. Ya, I said that; “Yes, we all know abstinence is the only sure-fire way to prevent the spread, but let’s be realistic here.”

    Thanks stdmd for just saying what I said but in different words…
