Harvard: Pope is correct about condoms and HIV

Posted by

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.


  1. Rejection of chastity spreads AIDS: A return TO chastity cures it-it’s that simple. That promiscuous HIV carriers drag millions of innocent spouses and children into their death spiral should further underscore what damage the mortal sin of lust inflicts on humanity. Condoms enable the immorality-BY THEIR VERY NATURE they exacerbate the problem.

    But no… the cowards in the secular media lump together babies, children, wives with husbands as one homogenous group labelled “victims.” But victims of who? Those who visit prostitutes and bring the disease upon their families are not victims, they are sinners leaving a swath of destruction in society.

    THAT is what Benedict XVI has bravely addressed-Chastity within and without marriage is God’s loving plan for us, and chastity is possible no matter what your color, culture or station in life is.
