Home Forums All Things Catholic AIDS and condoms Reply To: AIDS and condoms


I’ve been in an on-going debate (semi) with my boss. She’s Episcopalian, and still is shaken about my wife and I leaving her church because the lady rector didn’t believe in the virgin birth… another story.

I bring this up because this is one of her arguments against Catholicism — the prohibition against condom use in the case of AIDS. I remember thinking that it would be unnecessary if the REST of the Church’s teachings regarding healthy sexuality were followed. But I’d love to hear what is being said about people who through no fault of their own (married and got AIDS via tainted blood infusion, etc.) could use this in good conscience.
