Thanks to one of our commentators for directing me to this quote in the conservative National Review Online where the Church’s wisdom about condoms is actually confirmed. Here’s an interesting quote:
“There is,” Green adds, “a consistent association shown by our best studies, including the U.S.-funded ‘Demographic Health Surveys,’ between greater availability and use of condoms and higher (not lower) HIV-infection rates.
Of course the NRO had to ruin this important article by adding a patronizing touch about Africa…
It’s a common-sense message that isn’t madness whether you’re in Africa or dealing with hormonal American teenagers.
