Catholic Conservatives are huffing and puffing because a Catholic health agency is distributing condoms to prisoners because no one else will.

I’m no Biblical scholar, but one of Jesus’  fundamental teachings was to love thy neighbour. And to illustrate this he told the story of the good Samaritan, who at his own expense and safety, helped a complete stranger.


I love the this comment in response to outrage left on the website linked above:


The Pope issued a decree last year and approved the use of condoms as a far lesser evil than the spread of STDs. Read your recent history. Get yourselves up to date with the latest decrees on this issue.



I really don’t think anyone will be excommunicated because they acted to prevent people dying unnecessarily.

Personally, I suspect Pope Benedict is not as conservative as Conservatives say, Instead he’s just really, really smart, and knows the world is not perfect.
