Dutch condom company insults the Pope and the Church

AMSTERDAM (Reuters Life!) – A Dutch sex shop will be giving away 2,000 "Pope condoms" this weekend in a dig at the Roman Catholic Church.

De Condoomfabriek (The Condom Factory) said it wanted to make a point about sexually transmitted diseases, [which you get if you are promiscuous!] unwanted pregnancies [which you get if you are promiscuous and if married couples do not plan their births, the natural way!] and the Vatican's opposition to contraceptives.

The condom wrapper carries the image of a papal figure with an unmistakable general likeness to Pope Benedict, though the figure's face is removed. It bears the words "I SAID NO! We say YES!" framing the papal image.

The suggestion of a "pope condom" caused a diplomatic row last month when Britain's Foreign Office was forced to apologize for a memorandum by a civil servant that suggested Benedict launch a papal-brand condom on his pending visit to the UK. [we all know how that went.]


I read the comments about this article posted, and the pack of ravening wolves were exhilarated to read another attack on the Church.  Fortunately, one brave guy posted a challenge to the reactors and to the Dutch condom company.
OK wiseguy, let's see the Mohamed condems... what's the matter? Don't want your throat cut?

Can wait to see these "freedom of speech" zealots react to this!

  1. Actually Islam forbids contraception not on the same grounds as Catholicism does but for the fact that it is against tradition. The pro-life stance is an Islamic sunnah or living example of how the Prophet lived.

    Islam was barely influenced by the western Enlightenment so is not much affected yet by moral relativism. And this is its conflict with the west.
