The Catholic Church and Condoms

The Church is coming under attack for its indisputable observation that only abstinence can truly prevent the spread of AIDS. (see Catholic Churches Say Condoms Don't Stop AIDS – BBC).

An interesting case is Senegal, whose 1% AIDS rate (compared to over 25% for some sub-Saharan African countries), can be directly attributed to its “conservative cultural norms regarding sex.”

Senegal is 90% Muslim. We from “Christian” countries have to admit that we have much to learn from Muslims.
