A while back, I outline the case that the use of condoms to combat the AIDS epidemic actually has the opposite effect and that it is not a pro-life measure, as some would imagine that it is.
The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, while on his apostolic journey in Africa made remarks about the use of condoms and the crisis of AIDS that drew an incredible amount of criticism.
As providence would have it, a senior research scientist of Harvard School of Public Health has spoken out and agreed with the Holy Father.
In an interview about the matter, Dr. Green said:
“…I stuck my neck out knowing it would be controversial, because the Pope said that the distribution of condoms was not the solution, that monogamy and fidelity was. It depends on how you look at condoms…And, I have said that I am not a Catholic, and I am not talking about condoms in any sort of moral-ethical sense. I am talking about what has been found to work and not work…my position is very politically incorrect…”
Surprisingly, this Harvard expert has not drawn much criticism (as of yet) for his remarks, which is magnificently backed up by credible scientific evidence.
However, the Pope’s religious and philosophical conclusions, which are reflective in much scientific study on the matter is “dogmatic nonsense” of some sort.
