Perhaps the Pope's father should have worn a condom

    The Catholic Church has been against condoms since they were invented in the 16th century --their opposition in this century is nothing new. But, when His Holiness the Pope tells Africans that condom use increases the spread of AIDS, one wonders would we all be better off if Benedict's father had slipped one on 82 years ago.

    In his own words: "Aids cannot be overcome by the distribution of condoms. On the contrary, they increase the problem."

    And this is God's go-to-guy? Apparently the Holy See doesn't see that the abstinence-only stance of the church has never worked and never will --just ask Sarah and Bristol Palin. And to speak such health-heresy in a country where 25 million people have died from AIDS is beyond the pale.

    Condoms will increase the problem? That makes about as much sense as a divine, loving God asking a 600-year old man to build a boat so he could flood the world and kill everyone.

    If you believe in that, then I suppose you will believe in anything. And that is fine. But when you hold the sway of the Pope, making such ridiculous claims based on a failed policy of abstinence, is a sin beyond forgiveness.

    Condoms were invented in the 16th Century? Who would have known?

    I would assume that the pope primarily consumes manna.

    Maybe some Kraft Mac & Cheese...but mostly manna.
