In Defense of the Pope's Remarks

I wish for once that people would do some research before bashing the Pope and the Catholic Church. These policies and positions aren't just something that's made up to oppress people. In fact, quite the opposite. It's for their health, safety, well being and in the end their eternal salvation.

To all those who think the Catholic Church just makes this stuff up, let's not forget who created the University system and the Scientific Method in the first place.

National Review article:
From Saint Peter’s Square to Harvard Square

‘We have found no consistent associations between condom use and lower HIV-infection rates, which, 25 years into the pandemic, we should be seeing if this intervention was working.”

So notes Edward C. Green, director of the AIDS Prevention Research Project at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, in response to papal press comments en route to Africa this week.

God's Blessings,
Bob

I see that on his current visit to Africa, Pope Benedict has also repeated his critique of Islam regarding irrationalism and propagation by violence, though in a more low-key way than at Regensburg.

Hopefully the easily-offended ones will refrain from any reprisals.

Who is the Catholic Conservative American?
