Swiss Catholic church backs condom giveaway

October 25, 2010

A Catholic church in Lucerne, Switzerland, plans to distribute 3,000 condoms in an AIDS-awareness campaign.

Neither the Diocese of Basel (in which Lucerne is located) nor the Swiss bishops’ conference has yet offered a public comment on the condom-giveaway program.

    Looking for the good that may come from this bad situation, this could be evidence against the lawsuits in Kanas and Oregon. Obviously the Vatican (Pope) really does NOT have control over local churches. May God deliver us from these scandals! When will our Holy Father comdemn and remove Bishops and priests who disregard his sound teachings!?!!!

    Does Rome need any more evidence of their lack of loyalty and disrespect for the Holy See? How much does Rome need to get rid of that corrupt hierarchy?

    Yet another opportunity for a quick knock-out punch to Satan by a bishop left to drift off into the ether. Deplorable.

    And where is Pope Benedict on this?

    We wait in hope for those public comments, but in the meantime, silence might be considered consent.
