[Catholics] `C' is not for condoms (The Hindu)


#1

The church will not promote or propagate the use of condoms. A FOR Abstinence, B for Be Faithful and C for the Catholic Church stands for anything but condoms. Come April, that is going to be the official line of thinking of the Indian Catholic Church as it gears up to take on the monster called AIDS.

Someone may be able to verify this for me, but I heard that the AIDS epidemic in Africa could be cured in one generation if everyone would just practice chaste monogamy. Perhaps this applies to India as well.

The problem is that for many people in Africa, there is no hope. If AIDS doesn’t get you, something else will. With that mindset, there is a significant number of people who don’t care. . . and don’t care if they infect anyone else. What’s the point if life is horrible anyway? Carpe diem. . . eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.
