Pope ‘Okays’ Condom Use
11/21/2010 by Lord Awesome
Here’s a fun headline quote that’s going to spark many weeks of debate and discussion:
Pope says condoms OK to use in some cases
The Pope says that in at least one circumstance, male prostitution, using a condom is justified.
– Toronto Star, Nov 21
Oh no he didan’t. First off this is going to not end well at all for his Holiness and Gods Gang because lets face it, that’s not exactly the first reason you want to be giving out for the thumbs up on this long issue. And that leads to the second part which is more like a two-part problem: Does the Church then think prostitution is a profession without sin and if so, why male prostitutes then? Is not prostitution more associated with females than males?
I mean given the flack the church usually has to face and gets heavily reprimanded over for all those improper molestation of young male children you would think the absolute last thing you want to do is give justification to the problem. I mean is the church after the male prostitution vote or something? Does the Giglio Cartel have some dirt over the Pope and the Cardinals that they sort of had to come out and say this? Are they now having sex with male prostitutes and want to keep that information secret?
He used as a specific example male prostitutes, for whom contraception is not usually an issue, but did not mention married couples where one spouse is infected.
“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,” Benedict said.
Oh for the love of… Seriously? This is the best that you can come up with for an argument? What research on male prostitution and condom use is being done by the church? God must be telling them this information because any other method would have to involve research and that would be scientific.
And this still ignores why female prostitutes can’t use condoms on their Johns. I get there’s a lot of flack he’s facing due to the AIDS comments they apparently made, but still in the wrong insinuations being made by this are leading to ever darker revelations about the church. Honestly they need to do some back tracking in their comments before this gets to be the hole so deep that not even God himself cannot escape from.
But hey, maybe someone should just ask how much the church spends on male prostitution and see what they come up with. At least they are finally voicing concerns about AIDS.
I just found this on the webs. Someone needs to show this to the Pope and ask him if the entire condom thing should be rethought. Condoms could have prevented us from this crap.
