Cardinal Hits Back at Blair's Condom Comments

Cardinal Hits Back at Blair's Condom Comments
Posted on December 04, 2006

By The Universe: Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor has said the Prime Minister should spend more money on drugs to fight Aids in Africa rather than sending more condoms.

Speaking on the BBC’s Sunday AM programme, the cardinal said it would be “much better” if money for the increased distribution of condoms was spent on anti-retroviral drugs instead.

And he said Catholic bishops on the continent had told him their dioceses were “flooded” with condoms which had led to “more promiscuity and more Aids.”

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
