Pope Benedict XVI has said that handing out condoms is not the answer in the fight against HIV/Aids, as he makes his first visit to Africa as pontiff.I know that the papists aren't too keen on the old contraception, or sex in general really unless the goal is to sprout another sprog. Sexual intercourse, which apparently unbeknownst to the Pope, is an expression of a very strong and primitive emotion that would require, well, the patience of saint, to abstain from normal life. Newsflash Mr Pope, condoms save lives. Not that I particularly expect the head of a made up religion to be too familiar with that what we commonly refer to as 'reality'.
