Popey condom redux

How many times has the vatican "clarified" the pope's recent remarks on condom use and HIV/AIDS? Six? Eight? Well, they did it again today in a vatican statement that speaks volumes with its condescending tone.

Here's a quote from the statement issued by the important-sounding Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, frequently described as "the Vatican's moral watchdog":
"The idea that anyone could deduce from the words of Benedict XVI that it is somehow legitimate, in certain situations, to use condoms to avoid an unwanted pregnancy is completely arbitrary and is in no way justified either by his words or in his thought," the statement said.
Stupid, sanctimonious twits. They can't just say, "Condoms are okay to prevent disease but not pregnancy." Nice and simple. No, they have to dish the people who "could deduce" the opposite from the pope's idiotically opaque comments. The vatican's "moral watchdog" indeed. It is apparently a vatican organ whose goal it is to deflect criticism of the popey guy. It's all the fault of the know-nothing nabobs out there, not the popey guy.

They are just so infallible over there, aren't they? It kinda takes your breath away and makes you know there is indeed a god floating around way up in the sky. And for sure, the popey guy is on a first-name basis with him. For sure.
