Pope Benedict XVI To Lift Condom Ban

After decades of total ban on condom use, the Vatican have taken steps toward changing their stance on condom use in the world's fight against HIV / AIDS infections.

The Pope is urged to approve the recommendations of the condom study by his "health minister" and first hand experiences by missionaries who are caring for AIDS patients in Africa and Asia.

Considered "lesser of two evils", the Pope's decision to lift the condom ban will certainly make a direct impact in the fight against AIDS. full story here

The question if the Vatican gives the final approval is how will the very conservative Roman Chatholic Church of the Philippines react to Condom use. Will the church encourage condom use or remain silent?

What are the chances of averting a Philippine HIV AIDS disaster?

  • They (some of the more radical priests) already tried taking this to the Vatican way back in the 1970s. Obviously, they did not succeed. Let's see what happens this time around.

    The Vatican should come to terms with the reality of the present. Condom question is a start.

    Maybe the Vatican should give the condoms to the priests, they gotta have protection from the butts of the altar boys that have been discovered by other priests.

    Condoms are evil, they are the products of immoral ant-Christian anti-life secular ideology.

    The Church should continue to oppose the use of these things.

    what does it make pope benedict when he agrees for the church to allow the use of condoms? does it make pope benedict evil, immoral, anti-christian and anti secular?

    Excuse me, a priest does a boy. Then the boy goes to the next priest. The chances of illegitimate children is not down, it is ZERO!

    But you're right. Illegitimate children are down. When I was much younger, there were stories of priests molesting us children. Boys were told to avoid so-and-so. Girls were told to avoid so-and-so. At least one priest was known to be both ways, you know, he likes boys and girls. We knew to avoid circumstances, you know, when you'll be alone with a priest.

    Well, one of the girls disappeared. Rumor was that she got pregnant. Years later I saw her with her daughter, who's age was about the same as the time the mother disappeared. They were coming from the archdiocese office and going to the bank to cash a check. She showed me the check and it was from the Catholic Church of Manila. She said it was for the child of Father Burat, as in Malaki Ang. Father Burat was the one who liked boys and girls.

    The title is misleading us. Never in the story says that Pope Benedict would even lift a finger on the ban. It is true that there are liberals in the Church who wanted to promote condoms, but that does not mean that is or that will be the stand of the Church. Liberals can keep on hallucinating that one day a Pope would overturn what Pope Paul VI ruled out in the 60s. Liberals just keep on resurrecting this story every year. Expect this story to die down in a matter of days

    Pope Benedict would never agree to the use of condoms. It is the liberals in the Church who are making this issue. Ever year they publicize this issue. Dream on liberals...
    The gates of hell would never prevail over the Church (Matthew 16:8) :)

    Really? At the time when there were three popes, I heard the gates of hell were quite accomodating.
