Vatican: condoms don't stop Aids - Page 9

Will you gather support against this doctrine?

Somehow I doubt he just made it up off the top of his head. I want to see the scientific research that went into that statement. I want to see notes, "I added 4 micro-grams of iodine to a saleen solution and the we repeated 650 times..." If I find that they are lying after researching the true document, and not some shock-doc designed to get viewership on BBC, I will most certainly try to gather support to discredit and reprimand all involved.

How does he get that Automobile manfucaturer, Saleen, to make a solution, anyway?

I will not try to read any of the posts, but first and foremost the church teaches abstinence outside of marriage. Except for unfortunate incidents, that is a good way to stay as far away as one can to developing AIDS.

This is ridiculous. The AMA says condoms help prevent AIDS. The Surgeon General says condoms help prevent AIDS. A bishop with an obvious agenda says condoms have no effect against the AIDS virus. Who do you believe?

And you want to see the research, otherwise you won't believe it?

This is stupidity at its most incredible level.

I'm starting to think you are trolling.

Do you accept without question that condoms are permeable to the Human Immuno-defficiency Virus?

that's basically true, although misleading. i'll have to find the exact figures. the initial studies done were w/regards to latex gloves, not condoms.

hmm, mixed boat.

I'm still looking for an official report. All I can find are links to news reports with no references back to the original source. I have a feeling this means the documents do not yet exist in english. I will probably send an email to the Pontifical Council for the family when I have a free moment. I'll let you know what I find.

Who's talking about treating sex as a mere means to pleasure? Sex is the ultimate expression of intimacy and love.

Ok let me understand this, in the case of indeterminate genitalia you are conceding that the doctor could make the wrong decision about a human being's true sexuality, but nevertheless if the person decided to follow the direction of their true sexuality they would in fact be gay?

By this reasoning if you were kidnapped by a band of crazy doctors who gave you a sex change and then you escaped and returned to your wife, you would be commiting a sin by having sex with her? Is that correct?

Furthermore, is it a sin for an infertile married couple to have sex or a post-menopausal married woman? If you think so I believe your out of step with the catholic church.

And you are hardly worth the effort given by our members to reason with you. If I am not mistaken, one of the replies in your formidable arsenal of logic includes what can be best described as... "I know you are, but what am I." You know, if you say that with a bit of Shakespearean flair, it even sounds kind of legitimate.

Of course, you didn't respond on point to the rebuttal of your convenient little misuse of terms. Instead you called me a bigot and ignored it.

I don't believe I did that. But I am guilty of responding in kind with the response given to me. You treat me badly, I give you a taste of your own medicine. You can dish it but you can't take it, fine.

bigot - One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.

There is nothing inherent about Catholicism that would cause someone to hate gays, yet you cast all Catholics as gay haters. There is nothing disprovable or illogical in Catholic doctrine, yet you take a news blurb at face value without any research. I have done virtually no research on the particular issue of "holes in condoms", but I have done extensive research on numerous other Catholic doctrines and I find them to be a credible source. If you find Catholicism illogical it is because you haven't taken the time to really understand the point of view.

As for the misues of terms - as I recall it was a symantec game. Ok, great. I misued a term. Or maybe I didn't. Who cares?

You lost me a bit here? Are you answering yes, it is a sin to have sex in either of the examples I mentioned (someone with indeterminate genitalia being "corrected" to the "wrong" sex or you after being forced to have a sex change operation)? It sounds like your saying yes it's still a sin even though someone else imposed this on them/you.

Clearly most birth defects fall under "God's will" so the indeterminate genitalia qualify. If you concede it's ok for an infertile couple to have sex then why is it not ok for those with indeterminate genetalia?

I guess it was god's will that several kids had seen enough of their grandparents.

Like the earth being the center of the universe? They nearly burned a guy, forced him to backtrack on a perfectly valid claim - but I guess that was not doctrine, because most likely no papal correspondence on the matter will ever surface.
It's so easy with you religious types: everything not disproven is true. If it is disproven, it was not doctrine, but a mere mortal who made an error. This way, it is completely impossible to prove you wrong.

Someone kills a gay? Hey, it's in the bible. State says killing gays is no longer a thing they'll let you get away with? No problem, it was in the old testament, we have version 2.0 now. State gives gays the right to marry? Church still cries foul murder (happened over here in Germany - good thing we have a leftist government that did not falter). Of course the sneaky bastards will not let gays live their life and admit they have been murderously wrong for a couple of centuries, oh no. Still trying to block the road to progress by every means they have.

I am saying its a sin. So if crazy doctors try to take you, you should fight really hard.

Yes it was his will. God gives and God takes away. In this case the kids just got to go to the next stage of life a little early. What does this have to do with holes in condoms?

post #351 of 380
Its not like I'm forcing anybody to do anything. Everybody has free will to make their own choices. I'm an enemy of any man that tries to take away that right. You choose to live your life the way you choose. You want to use condoms or artificial incemination, I DON'T CARE. THATS YOUR CHOICE. I don't judge. I've been on all sides of the issues. I've just become convinced that Catholicism is the truth. So what? What does it have to do with you? Why are you people so interested in my personal choices? Why are you tring to say I don't have the right to my own choices? It doesn't even affect you. Arguing that supporting the Catholic Church is affecting you is completely irrational. People are going to be mean and biggoted and evil regardless of their religious/political/ethnic background. Kill Catholics and you'll just have someone else to blame and hate. Thats the way people are. I'm just trying to live my life the best way that I know how. But thanks to you all I have learned one thing. People are wierder and dumber than I ever thought possible. You've all convinced me to go buy a Gun.

What is wrong with you people?

Now I'm really lost. In the first part you suggest that people with indeterminant genetalia who were improperly corrected cannot have sex without it being a sin. In the second part you suggest that it wouldn't be because God made them with indeterminate sex.

Since you also suggest that a forced sex change would prohibit you from having sex with your wife (without it being a sin) it would seem that you believe that man actually has the power to change one's true sexuality, by altering their physical appearance. Is this correct?

I assume that your ok with these same unfortunate people (the miscorrected people with indeterminate genitalia) undergoing further surgery to change their sex back to their "correct" sex?

Retard, I follow the church. But if you are asking me my opinion I believe that God would forgive. There is no incongruency between saying "I wouldn't do it" and saying "I can understand why someone would and don't personally see the problem."

Unfortunately too, it is known to abuse this power to coerce people who live according to a different set of rules. Supporting an unethical organization is unethical, that's all.
