*sigh*

Its bad to hand out free condoms because everyone knows that because you dont have condoms you will never have sex...yeah right.

The plan, the Catholic leaders said, "is tragic and misguided," adding that the only way to protect against sexually transmitted diseases is through abstinence before marriage and fidelity among married couples.

Is the Catholic Church really that ignorant to believe that giving out condoms is the same as saying go out and have sex?

I know the Catholics dont approve of birth control but come on, its the 21st century, get your head out of your vellum scrolls and come into the present.

I think the current messasge should be "We dont condone random sex, but if your gonna play at least be prepared and protected"

I think handing out condoms is a great idea. It doesn't promote underage sex, it just helps keep it safer for those who do it. I got a condom from a guy handing them out at Warped Tour in summer. It's been six months, and I have yet to use it.

An married or matured adult getting condoms from someone only promotes safer sex. Handing them out to children in highschool only promotes sex.

I got two condoms in my backpack that I've had for quite a while, I had to check recently to see if they had expired.

I think its a good thing to do, handing out condoms that is. Just because someone has one, doesnt mean they're gonna go out and use it (condom that is, but same could go for many arguments, guns perhaps).

A bit of dishonesty is necessary if you want to be the fastest-growing religion of the world.

I don't mind if people are abstinent, it's a sign of a strong character if you manage not to do what others tell you to do, but I don't think it makes a lot of sense either. You live only once, so better have fun when it's possible, which usually means doing the opposite of what religious people tell you to do. A lot of Christians seem to believe that you only get into heaven if you make your life as miserable as possible, I say God probably gave you a brain capable of experiencing orgasms for a reason.

Having a condom only places the idea in your head that you are safe if you have sex. Condoms arent even all that effective. They dont always work .

As teens you know better than to get someone pregnant and you want to screw around with as much trouble as you can as you get away with it. Wild parties.Drinking...vandalism. Having a condom is just an escape and reason for you to have sex in most of your minds. It is safer sex to most of you where in fact it is just an invention to sex before marriage.

Giving out condoms doesn't 'promote' sex, most of the adults now-a-days realize that kids are going to be having sex anyways, they want them to be protected. My school has 25cent condoms in a vending machine.

Yes, it does promote sex...what are else are you saying by giving out a pack of condonms?

I've got a better question why are you guys concerned with what other people's sex lives are safe or not? IF you you know unprotected sex leads to STD's then protect yourself...

If you know and do it anyway...who's fault is that? Your church? for not giving out condomes?

I think logic has rolled ITSELF into a condom.

Handing out condoms and talking about responsible decisions concerning sex don't close each other out. How about handing out condoms in Africa, is it a stupid idea because the Catholic Church doesn't approve it?

Perhaps because it causes unnecessary stress for people & health care expenses and eventually, condom or no condom, you may suffer yourself from the fact that your sex partner has some disease: condoms aren't 100 % reliable.

I think this whole issue made out from handing out free condoms is just overly conservative & obsolete thinking. Better to be safe than sorry, and rejecting sex before marriage isn't some clear cut issue for all people. Human is human, not a machine.
