Pope says condoms & hookers are not immoral?

http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2010/1...circumstances/

"There could be single cases that can be justified, for instance when a prostitute uses a condom, and this can be a first step towards a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility, to develop again the awareness of the fact that not all is allowed and that one cannot do everything one wants," Benedict said.

Now that he says they're OK, I suddenly have no interest in condoms and hookers.

To be honest, I've never had much interest in condoms.

He's just trying to deflect everyone's attention from the fact that he looks like Emperor Palpatine.

I think that only applies if you're Catholic.

If you're not Catholic, then the Pope is only an old man in a dress and a funny hat.

You may want to read the actual article so you know what kind of hookers he was--

On second though, never mind. Go nuts! Get 4-5 of the hookers and do 'em all at once.

I know you can't be serious, therefore, I won't comment on it.

After he announced The Beatles were ok, I just assumed condoms & hookers were too.

I could follow the faith of half my forefathers and believe he's an antiChrist encouraging the worship of graven images and subverting the True Word.

I prefer to think of him as an old man in a funny hat.

How about he's a man of considerable power and influence in the world?

Well that doesn't preclude him from being an old man in a funny hat.

I thought we made a pact that we weren't going to discuss the bachelor's party.

I guess. I think of him kind of like the Queen of the UK. Or Jerry Bruckheimer.

Just like Hugo Chavez. But unlike Hugo Chavez, he dresses like Oscar Wilde's favorite Italian transvestite hooker.

Hmmm, could there be some self-interest in classicman defending old men in funny hats?

I don't wear a hat - sometimes a straw hat.

I don't wear a hat either. Except a Lakers stocking hat when I snow blow.
