What do you say to that?
According to the vatican, condoms don't stop Aids. Yup, you read correctly. They do not stop AIDS. In fact, the archbishop of Nairobi, Raphael Ndingi Nzeki, said: "Aids... has grown so fast because of the availability of condoms."

And when the World Health Organization counters with "Condoms provide a highly effective barrier to transmission of particles of similar size to those of the smallest STD viruses", the vatican's Cardinal Trujillo replies: "They are wrong about that... this is an easily recognisable fact."

In Lwak, near Lake Victoria, the director of an Aids testing centre says he cannot distribute condoms because of church opposition. Gordon Wambi told the programme: "Some priests have even been saying that condoms are laced with HIV/Aids."


I don't even know what to say. It just goes to reinforce my beliefs that these people live in their own little world of clinical insanity where preventing contraception use is more important than preventing death.
