AIDS, Pope Benedict XVI told reporters, “is a tragedy that cannot be overcome by money alone, and that cannot be overcome through the distribution of condoms, which even aggravates the problems.”
It’s an interesting contrast with Rick Warren’s approach. The Saddleback website explains, “We can’t prevent many other diseases that plague mankind, but we know how abstinence, monogamy, and condoms can go a long way toward stopping HIV in its tracks.”
Warren has said that while “I’m not going to give a condom to a kid” he does support distributing condoms to prostitutes in Africa and India in part because, “I want to keep them alive long enough that I can win them to Christ,” he told WorldNet. “If they’re dead, it’s too late. The good news is only good news if it gets there in time.”
