Salvation by Latex

Reporter George Weigel with a fantastic piece on the lastest papal media storm.

It’s incredibly ironic that the secular media criticizes the Church, the largest charitable organization in the world, on its stance on condoms, which actually do little to prevent the spread of AIDS.  Afterall, people sometimes don’t use condoms (either they are drunk, run out and have sex anyways, etc), and condoms can fail.

There does seem to be an inherent racism within the “controversy”, with the media assuming that Africans must be sex-crazed freaks, and all we can do is have them put on condoms.  Rather than encourage monogamy and fidelity to a single spouse.

Anyways check out the read its very good.
