Condom Use justified For Prostitutes Avoiding HIV, Still Unacceptable For Contraception or Priest's Rape Victims

The rare sight of consenting adults taking off
their clothes in a room full of priests
In a surprise proclamation, Pope Benedict XVI decreed that condom use is justified in special cases, such as prostitutes trying to prevent HIV infection, though he did maintain that condom use is still unacceptable for the use of contraception or for priest's rape victims.

The Holy Father points out that the use of a condom "with the intention of reducing the risk of infection, can be a first step in a movement towards a different way, a more human way, of living sexuality. But condoms sure as hell won't stand in the way of priests raping children, a tradition almost as old as the church itself."

Even the lesbians liked
the shirtless acrobats
In another unusually hard line regarding individuals in the priesthood "who are affected" with homosexuality, he said, "they must at least try not to express this inclination towards other men who are consenting adults. Sex with other adults, for Chrissakes? That's not why the Holy Roman Catholic Church was invented!" - TJ
