You Gotta Love Them Catholics
Daniella Mercury, a Brazilian superstar and ambassador for UNICEF and the UN anti-Aids program, offered to perform for free at the Vatican’s annual Christmas concert that supports various charities. The Vatican turned her down. Why? Because she supports the use of condoms for Aids prevention. A Vatican spokesman said the use of condoms promotes immoral and hedonistic behavior that will lead to more Aids cases, not fewer.

Huh? Do these people ever read the newspapers? When is the Vatican going to get out of the dark ages and join the real world? Even the Cardinal in Brazil thought it was stupid. Indeed, the Brazilian government just announced they are going to distribute one billion condoms next year to help fight Aids.
Just as an aside, in Pennsylvania, the archdiocese is fighting a proposal to allow anyone who was abused by priests, regardless of age, to step forward and file suit against the church as long as they do it within a one year window. Why are they fighting it? Because they say it could bankrupt the diocese. Jeez!! They expect that many lawsuits? Did the priests there do anything with their time except molest their parishioners? And the Vatican is screaming about “immoral and hedonistic behavior” because of condoms? Makes me laugh so hard I almost puke!
