Breaking News: Condoms Make AIDS Worse!


It's surreal to hear the Pope, an old man wholly uncognizant of sexual matters if we can believe his press, announce that condoms "aggravate" the problem of AIDS, not help solve it. On his first trip to Africa, where AIDS has killed over 25 million people, Pope Benedict called AIDS "a tragedy" that can be overcome, not by money, education or "a contraception mentality,"  but by "the traditional teaching of the Church" on chastity and fidelity, which has worked so well to date.

The Pope, who has said the Church is in the forefront of the fight against AIDS, has dismissed suggestions he has grown isolated from the rest of the world: "The myth of my solitude makes me laugh." Not us, though.
