Dutch Sex Shop Fights Ignorance By Giving Away "Pope Condoms"

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Dutch sex shop will be giving away 2,000 `Pope condoms` this weekend in a dig at the Roman Catholic Church.

De Condoomfabriek (The Condom Factory) said it wanted to make a point about sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies and the Vatican`s opposition to contraceptives.

The condom wrapper carries the image of a papal figure with an unmistakable general likeness to Pope Benedict, though the figure`s face is removed. It bears the words `I SAID NO! We say YES!` framing the papal image."


It`s a mortal sin for a public figure to condemn the use of condoms when they prevent thousands of deaths from AIDS and other venereal diseases every year

I commend the Condom Factory for their comical way of criticizing the ignorant and evil teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Roman Catholics should disregard the teaching of their church regarding birth control, and buy condoms to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs.

I`m not surprised the The Condom Factory is giving away the Pope condoms, and not selling them. If a dude puts on a condom bearing the image of the evil Pope (how can I phrase this delicately?), he may not be up to the task

Dear friend, strike a blow against ignorance, and put on a Pope condom
