Certainly, a gay prostitute is not using a condom for birth control so that is simply irrelevant. On the other hand, homosexual sex is unnatural, degrading, and mortally sinful. Can using a condom out of concern for transmitting AIDS make it less sinful? I think I understand the point that it might signal an awakening sense in the sinner of concern for the partner in sin; but what kind of concern is it when one is in the act of buggery?
This quote came from lesfemmes-thetruth.blogspot.com
There has been a lot of talk lately about what the Pope has said about condoms. News outlets are going crazy! The Pontiff is not easing up on the church's hard stance on contraception. In the Pope's new book, Light of the World: The Pope, the Church, and the Sign of the Times, he has simply discussed the fact that condoms could be helpful in stopping the spread of disease. Now attention Liberals, Conservatives, Ultra-Conservatives, and anyone else who either thinks A) the Pope has decided to remix the church and shake up the big V ( as in vatican-gosh) and is down with that or B) Thinking of trying to overthrow the Pope while waving anti-gay and abortion signs. If you fall into any of the above categories and have chosen to speak out about it, blog about it, tweet about it, etc. Put your hands back in your pants !
There is nothing to be done, nothing is changing, the world is not going to topple over. There simply is a Pope who exists that believes that the world is changing, and in order to prevent harder times ahead some of the old doctrine needs to be explained in a new light. That is all.
I promise you, card-caring ultra religious catholic types, that you religion will be remained unharmed. Well for now anyways.
So read up, but only smart comments please.
One more thing, was the word buggery really used?
Ciao for now,
P.s. none of this affects me in my current Jew status.
P.p.s As usual, if I have offended you... well.... it happens.
P.p.p.s (?) This does not mean you should not voice your opions, but stay off the attack mode. And remember saying things to hear your own voice, or to see your name attached to a blog post in which both the words 'Pope" and 'condoms' are used ( which is the reason for me writing this post- looks good right?) is just not always a good idea.
