The Pope Continues To Impress Us With His Rationality

The Pope Continues To Impress Us With His Rationality

“You can’t resolve it with the distribution of condoms,” the pope told reporters aboard the Alitalia plane headed to Yaounde. “On the contrary, it increases the problem.” What a fucking idiot.

The pope said that a responsible and moral attitude toward sex would help fight the disease. Of course he did. Its not like any of this is surprising news or new news. But it always shocks me how this repetitive bullshit makes me enraged time and time and time again. Promote abstinence all you want (though see how far you get), but don’t DISCOURAGE condom use. Are you out of your fucking mind? You obviously have little to no understanding of how the African AIDS crisis functions, and that it is, in fact, your bullshit religious doctrine that is very much increasing the problem.
