Archbishop of Mozambique Claims Condoms Tainted

1 10 2007

The BBC reports that,

 Archbishop Chimoio told our reporter that abstention, not condoms, was the best way to fight HIV/Aids.

“Condoms are not sure because I know that there are two countries in Europe, they are making condoms with the virus on purpose,” he alleged, refusing to name the countries.

“They want to finish with the African people. This is the programme. They want to colonise until up to now. If we are not careful we will finish in one century’s time.”

Chimoio is the head of the Catholic Church in Mozambique, and therefore the leader of an estimated 3.35 million people.  It is also estimated that in Mozambique 500 people are infected with HIV every day.

This is another example of how religion effects everyone.  Publicly making statements and accusations like those of the Archbishop takes you out of the realm of personal beliefs and into the realm of public policy.  So next time you religious apologists say peoples personal beliefs shouldn’t be attacked, remember that it’s not personal if it is killing people.  And that damn well makes it my business.
