Leave it to the French to have the balls to respond to the Pope's heartless and idiotic misinformation campaign against condoms!

The Roman Catholic Church says marital fidelity and sexual abstinence are the best way to prevent the spread of HIV.

But France, echoing the reaction of some aid agencies, said it "voices extremely sharp concern over the consequences of [the Pope's comments]".

"While it is not up to us to pass judgment on Church doctrine, we consider that such comments are a threat to public health policies and the duty to protect human life," foreign ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier said.

Thank goodness someone responded!!! How many people have died worldwide, do you think, as a direct result of the Catholic Church's opposition to condom use?

The heartlessness of Catholicism is part of the institution. Let's see, Crusades, Inquisitions, support of Facist dictators ranging from Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco, to Peron, Borgia popes...yes this is completely in line with their reasoning. In Africa they have found a fresh naive population.

Haha great! It's good that even this conservative government can call out the pope's insane comments!

Agreed, thank God someone said something about this batshit lunacy!
