The Catholic Church and Condoms
this post was taken from http://marysaggies.blogspot.com/2010/11/catholic-church-and-condoms.html
I want to make sure I am very clear – DO NOT LISTEN TO THE MEDIA WHEN THEY TELL YOU THE CHURCH IS CHANGING A DOCTRINE!!!
They don’t have any clue about what the Church teaches in the fist place, nor do they have any care for telling us the full truth. They want to make money and create sensational headlines.
If you want to know what the Catholic Church really teaches, it is going to take a bit more work than reading one bad article.
So, here is the deal – the Pope is NOT saying that condoms are a moral choice.
Jimmy Akin has the best summation of the nuances that the Pope is talking about, so I highly recommend you read his post here.
