It Won’t Solve It…

The Pope declared that condoms won’t solve AIDs in Africa.  And he’s right.  It won’t solve it.  Nrither will preaching abstinence.  Preaching abstinence has certainy not stopped the spread of AIDs (or any other disease that transmits via sexual activity).  No one really believes that distribution of condoms will solve the problem.

Hodes said the pope was right that condoms are not the sole solution to Africa’s AIDS epidemic, but added they are one of the very few proven measures to prevent HIV infections.

It can help.  It’s a part of the solution.  Not the solution.  But the Pope seems to believe that a more honest approach to human nature is not worth it.  Just keep telling folks to follow the religious rules that Christians themselves struggle to follow.  Yeesh.
