"Cheese-eating surrender monkeys" blasts "Thou who is not holy" on condoms remark

Damn, this freakin' cold/flu/monster I've been stuck with for the past two friggin' weeks (and counting) just won't go away. Coughing fit to die of asphyxiation every day, the taste alone makes me want to cut out my tongue, and now, I'm spewing blood whenever I cough. Juuust great. Now waiting for my father to get back so we can hightail it to a doctor for once. (You know, those guys in white labcoats, as mysterious and difficult to find as leprechauns ...?)

Meanwhile, a little update. You'll remember Lord Sidious – uuuh, I mean Pope Benedict's – remarks on how using condoms doesn't stop the spread of AIDS but actually makes it worse, right? Now France (or 'cheese-eatin' surrender monkeys' as you Yanks will have heard of them) publicly blasted these assertions, saying they put millions of lives at risk of the disease if the ignorant sheep stop using condoms.

"It (AIDS) cannot be overcome by the distribution of condoms. On the contrary, they increase the problem," [Pope Benedict] said.

You will, of course, remember the Pope and Church's much better ideas on how to curb the progress of AIDS and HIV infections.

The Church teaches that fidelity within heterosexual marriage, chastity and abstinence are the best ways to stop AIDS.

Anyway, France's response to the Pope's comments:

"While it is not up to us to pass a judgement on the doctrines of the Church, we consider that such remarks put in danger public health policy and imperative needs regarding the protection of human life."

More than 25 million people have died from AIDS since the early 1980's, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, and some 22.5 million Africans are living with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Uh, yes, it is your role to criticize and judge the doctrines of the Church. Everyone can say whatever they want about anything, as long as it's right. Example, I can accuse them of brainwashing populations into ignorance and intolerance. See? Not so hard.
