Facebook Users vs. the Pope

- By Bossip Staff

Remember the Pope’s questionable sentiments regarding condoms and the spread of AIDS? Well, certain people said, “to Hell with that,” and have taken to Facebook groups to rally for their cause:

Critics took to the social networking site Facebook to voice their fury over Pope Benedict’s remark that condoms do not prevent HIV.

Thousands have pledged to send the pontiff millions of condoms to protest the controversial comment he made to journalists as he flew to Cameroon last week.

“You can’t resolve it with the distribution of condoms,” the pope told reporters. “On the contrary, it increases the problem.”

Pope Benedict XVI has made it clear he intends to uphold the traditional Catholic teaching on artificial contraception. The Vatican has long opposed the use of condoms and other forms of birth control and encourages sexual abstinence to fight the spread of the disease.

About a dozen Facebook groups have sprang up, mostly from European countries, criticizing the pontiff.

“The clergy aren’t supposed to have sex at all, but they are free to tell people how to conduct themselves? That’s like a girl who wears no make-up as the CEO of CoverGirl,” one member posted on the page, “Condoms for Pope Benedict XVI.”

“It frightens me that a man who has devoted his life to moral guidance … and is undeniably a learned, intelligent man can be at the same time so narrow-minded, bigoted and irresponsible,” posted another person on a different page.

We don’t know if we feel strong enough to start crusading for this particular cause, but the Pope is certainly not with the times, to say the least.

    The pope is a bigger pimp then any street hustler you have ever seen or known in your life. And the bible is a wonderfully written booked filled with parables and metaphors if u break the code you might learn something, maybe. I feel sorry for brainwashed fools. 😦

    Laugh all you want… The theme behind the Pope’s words are true…

    Look in the mirror brothas and ask yourself a question…

    If the honey is fine and you’ve got a condom, and she’s willing, You’re hittin it, Right?

    If the condom breaks and the honey is still fine as hell and begging for it are you hittin it then???

    If the answer to the second question is yes (tell the truth to yourself!)
    then the Pope is right and condoms don’t help because they promote the behavior that can kill you…

    I’m only being honest…
