The sheer evil of the Catholic Church

"Evil is a religious concept and the Catholic Church loves to bandy it about when commenting on the behaviour of other people. Well, now I want to tell the Catholic Church that the activities of its Archbishop Francisco Chimoio of Maputo, Mozambique are incredibly evil.
This stupid man is putting about the idea that condoms manufactured in Europe are pre-infected with HIV.


Scientists desperately try to reassure people that the virus cannot live outside the body, and there is no way condoms could have this effect. But clerics hold great sway among the deprived and illiterate people of rural Africa. Their words are heeded, unfortunately."
