Pope on male prostitutes and condoms- Condom use can never be morally justified...

Pope on male prostitutes and condoms- Condom use can never be morally justified...



"There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility, on the way toward recovering an awareness that not everything is allowed and that one cannot do whatever one wants. But it is not really the way to deal with the evil of HIV infection. That can really lie only in a humanization of sexuality.

[...]

Benedict: She of course does not regard it as a real or moral solution, but, in this or that case, there can be nonetheless, in the intention of reducing the risk of infection, a first step in a movement toward a different way, a more human way, of living sexuality"

- Pope Benedict XVI




Note by Marc Aupiais

Due to the as ever sensationalist and irresponsible journalism of Vatican based but not Vatican vetted paper L'Osservatore Romano- which heroised the Beatles for saying they were more popular than God, U2's Bono who spent just 200 000 of over ten million raised by his organisation One on the poor- for praying in public for his own agenda, and promoted a pro-abortionist stance in the Recife issue, we once again have to clarify their inexcusable hell-worthy errors, which have been aplenty since their new editor somehow got the job:

"Fortunately, now you can read the full text of the Pope's remarks.

Also, in anticipation of the controversy that these statement would produce, Dr. Janet Smith has prepared a helpful guide to what the Pope did and did not say.

Let's look at the Pope's remarks and see what he actually said.

Seewald: . . . In Africa you stated that the Church's traditional teaching has proven to be the only sure way to stop the spread of HIV. Critics, including critics from the Church's own ranks, object that it is madness to forbid a high-risk population to use condoms.

Benedict: . . . In my remarks I was not making a general statement about the condom issue, but merely said, and this is what caused such great offense, that we cannot solve the problem by distributing condoms. [EMPHASIS ADDED] Much more needs to be done. We must stand close to the people, we must guide and help them; and we must do this both before and after they contract the disease.

As a matter of fact, you know, people can get condoms when they want them anyway. But this just goes to show that condoms alone do not resolve the question itself. More needs to happen. Meanwhile, the secular realm itself has developed the so-called ABC Theory: Abstinence-Be Faithful-Condom, where the condom is understood only as a last resort, when the other two points fail to work. This means that the sheer fixation on the condom implies a banalization of sexuality, which, after all, is precisely the dangerous source of the attitude of no longer seeing sexuality as the expression of love, but only a sort of drug that people administer to themselves. This is why the fight against the banalization of sexuality is also a part of the struggle to ensure that sexuality is treated as a positive value and to enable it to have a positive effect on the whole of man's being.

Note that the Pope's overall argument is that condoms will not solve the problem of AIDS. In support of this, he makes several arguments:"

New York archbishop Dolan elected, as Catholic church takes stance against sex abuse- claims

New York archbishop Dolan elected, as Catholic church takes stance against sex abuse- claims


The USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops), has elected Archbishop TImothy Dolan of New York as their new president, narrowly beating out Kicanas, a bishop with sex abuse conspiracies hanging of his head. The move has been welcomed by SNAP Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests  and by others concerned by Kicanas.

Unfortunately, a large amount of the bishops did still vote for Kicanas, but the move to not elected a vice president to president is just about unheard of, meaning the bishops broke from precedent and traditions, in order to prevent the alleged sex abuse implicated Kicanas from leading the group.

South Africa: Injustice?: Girl gang "raped" and then charged with own "rape"

South Africa: Injustice?: Girl gang "raped" and then charged with own "rape"

SACATHOLICNEWSSERVIC | November 19, 2010 |

Marc Aupiais reports

A girl attending Jules High School, was publicly humiliated, videoed and penetrated on the school's sports field, while reportedly drunk or drugged. Other students allegedly watched and jeered at her, while videoing the incident. After prosecutors rejected all the evidence for rape, they then charged her with under-aged sex, a crime which warrants similar sentencing to Rape in South Africa, and which is termed "statutory rape". While maintaining that she was raped at her first court appearance, the girl suddenly changed her testimony at her second court appearance for "statutory rape", causing some to believe she was pressured into this by prosecutors embarrassed in the press, or by a community known for violence.
