The misrepresentations of the Pope’s words in his book-interview are ricocheting around, developing their own buzz.
WHO welcomes the Pope’s statement on condoms
MANILA, 25 November 2010—The World Health Organization (WHO) today welcomed a statement by Pope Benedict XVI that the use of condoms is acceptable in halting the spread of AIDS.
“The Pope’s statement is in line with evidence that condoms are highly effective in preventing infection with the HIV virus,” said Dr Shin Young-soo, WHO’s Regional Director for the Western Pacific.
The Pope said, explicitly, that condoms are neither a moral solution nor a REAL solution.
In fact, just as he did when he was on an airplane doing a presser, the Pope knows more about condoms than the World Health Organization.
What I find amazing is that an organization like this can simply make it up.
