Harvard: Pope Is Right About HIV/AIDS


Edward C. Green, director of the AIDS Prevention Research Project at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, has said that the evidence confirms that the Pope is correct in his assessment that condom distribution exacerbates the problem of AIDS.

"The pope is correct," Green told National Review Online Wednesday, "or put it a better way, the best evidence we have supports the pope's comments."

"There is," Green added, "a consistent association shown by our best studies, including the U.S.-funded 'Demographic Health Surveys,' between greater availability and use of condoms and higher (not lower) HIV-infection rates.

The facts don't have any impact on the so-called mainstream media. They have their press releases from the 'Culture of Death' and its just sooo convenient to reprint them verbatim. The more abmbitious 'journalists' will trouble to add a little invective.

I long for the day that the UN and the WHO will no longer be seen by the ignorant masses as guileless benefactors of mankind, but I doubt I'll live that long.

Although it has been eclipsed by the condom media-circus, on his current visit to Africa Pope Benedict has also repeated his critique of Islam regarding irrationalism and propagation by violence, though in a more low-key way than at Regensburg.

Hopefully the easily-offended ones will refrain from any reprisals.
