Pope made to seem ‘either ill educated or ill intentioned’
During Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to Cameroon on 18 March, he said that HIV and AIDS cannot be “resolved by distributing condoms; quite the contrary, we risk worsening the problem”.

In Geneva, the United Nations AIDS agency UNAIDS, on the same day, described condom use as “an essential part” of strategies to combat HIV and AIDS.

Writing in The Times, epidemiologist Elizabeth Pisani said that the use of condoms, “makes an important contribution to reducing its spread,” adding, “The Pope may not like that, but disputing its truth makes him seem either ill educated or ill intentioned.”

The French, German and Belgian Foreign Ministries have joined in the chorus of condemnation of the Pope’s remarks. (Based on a report from ENI)
