British Cardinal Responds To Blair's Approach TO AIDS Fight

A British Cardinal responded to Tony Blair's approach in the fight against AIDS. Blair said that the British government would increase its distribution of condoms to the "developing world" to help in the fight against AIDS.

The Cardinal said, "Funds used by the British government to purchase condoms to limit the spread of HIV/AIDS in the developing world would better be spent on anti-retroviral drugs for the millions of affected women and children." He went on to say, "The way to combat AIDS is primarily, as everyone should know, behavioral change, monogamous partnerships between a man and a woman."

So, let me see if I have this right. The British government shouldn't spend money on preventing AIDS by distributing condoms to those in need. Instead, they should just spend all the money on medicine for those who already have the disease. Forget about prevention. Just concern yourself with treatment. Nice!! In other words, who gives a shit if you get the disease after not using a condom because one wasn't available. We don't care about preventing you from getting the disease in the first place. We just want to make sure that you don't use those evil condoms. After all, condoms spread AIDS, or at least that's what Catholics have been preaching.

I do love the logic that somehow AIDS can be prevented as long as a man and a woman change their behavior, and they are in a monogamous relationship. Nice try Cardinal. Who says that said man or said woman didn't have a sexual relationship prior to this one, and that relationship resulted in one or the other contracting HIV?

Africa, he said, referring to discussions he has had with the continent’s bishops, is “flooded with condoms” that has “meant more promiscuity and more AIDS.” Oh good Lord!! Africa is flooded with condoms which has meant more promiscuity and more AIDS? Where are the condoms sir? If Africa is overflowing with condoms, where are they? Produce these condoms because I want to see them!! Condoms don't promote promiscuity and AIDS asshole. Condom use promotes being responsible when you're having sex so that you can prevent AIDS and other diseases. Not using a condom is what promotes AIDS. Not using a condom and not allowing people to use one is not only irresponsible, it's essentially handing down a death sentence when you're talking about AIDS.

Acknowledging that the Vatican has a report on and is studying the use of condoms within marriage where one of the partners is HIV positive, the cardinal said the Catholic Church “stands by what it says” against the use of condoms. So again in other words, who gives a shit if you get AIDS. The Catholic Church has spoken, and we're telling you that using a condom is a sin. We're telling you that it's immoral to use a condom. Who gives a damn if it can prevent a husband or wife from contracting HIV. What the Catholic Church says is what goes in other words.

God damn, have I told you lately how much I hate these people? It's completely asinine to not help people prevent a disease simply because some assholes sitting over in the Vatican think that using a condom is a sin. Jesus Christ, what the hell is wrong with these people? They might not be having sex, ***yeah right*** but other people are. If even one person can be prevented from getting HIV by giving them a condom, it's worth it. Fuck religious beliefs. This is not a game. This is a matter of life and death. Apparently the Catholic Church thinks that death is better, as long as they continue to look moral in the eyes of a fucking cloud being!! While they're trying to reserve a spot in heaven, people are dying simply because some assholes in a robe who wear a cross think that they have the right to say what's moral and what's not. Quit playing GOD and start doing something about really fighting AIDS.
