Good for the pope

Vatican defends pope condoms stand

The successor to St. Peter is showing why he is a true saintly servant of God. He has had the audacity to stand up for the word of God, so now all of the usual suspects have rushed out to criticize him.

But that's fine. The pope is not running a popularity contest. He is upholding long held church doctrine. And you do not take church doctrine lightly in the face of popular sentiment.

The pope is right. The only sure way to stop AIDS from being spread through sexual contact is to uphold the sanctity of marriage as outlined in the Holy Bible. Sex outside of the marriage covenant is a sin, and sin is not negotiable. Yes, we should not judge sinners, but we can condemn the sin itself, as the pope has wisely done.

There is no place for condoms as a part of the institution of marriage. And there is no place for adultery and fornication outside of marriage. That's it. Some may find those facts inconvenient, but that's just too bad.

Secular Europe should keep it's nose out of the business of the holy church. But IMO there is a fat chance of that. Secularism is on the rise all over the world, and with it moral authority goes out the window.

Witness Barack Obama's decision to expand stem cell research to the point where human embryos, which are viable human life, will be subjected to wholesale slaughter, all in the name of so-called "progress."

Thank God that we have a true and saintly pope who has the courage to stand up for what is right and who will not back down in the face of popular pressures. So to the secularists of Europe and elsewhere, I say rethink your worldly positions before it's too late.

But there is hope. There are millions of faithful followers of the Holy Church who will give sincere credence to the pope's dictates. And here in the USA, more and more people are waking up to the fraud that is Barack Obama, with his stem cell research and abortion funding and all the rest. We are going through a dark time right now, but change is on the horizon. 2012 will soon come, and we will have a chance to return a God fearing man to the White House in the tradition of George W. Bush. And all the while, the great Pope Benedict will be keeping up the good fight.

I think the Pope is right. People should not say they're church going living by God will and have to use condom.
