Oops, my mistake. I thought the OP said condiments! Carry on Pope, my advice is just don't purchase a place if you think your going to move within a year or two, you'd be better off renting.

Dunno Chow. I got bored somewhere in the middle there when it went off on the gay/pedophile tangent, or perhaps a little early when I heard the distinct sound of bible thumping.

Anyway, I think it's interesting that so much discussion has gone on about the comments right around the world and it's great to see so many people including Catholics rejecting what was said and focusing on the better solutions.

No...bisexuality and pedophilia are different.

These "better solutions" IMO include handing out free condoms and handing out free formula to mothers.

Also...making it a crime for a person with AIDS to have sex with another person unless that person is informed their partner has AIDS.

Ninth time for dense liberals. The church doesn't change it's principles based on people's gripes. Are we going for 10?

The West has distributed a billion condoms each year in Africa. if it isn't working, why do you want to keep doing it?

Let's try the pope's message of changing hearts and minds.

Nobody said bisexuality was the same as pedophilia. Do liberals not read?

You just keep on trying to make liberals look bad, and end up making conservatives look ridiculous. I'm ashamed if you identify yourself as conservative.

With the Darfur refugees, Japan was supplying water. Japan wanted into the Big Five. When that was nixed, Japan stopped supplying water.

It would be interesting to see how many times an organization has to back track due to the political intrests of a given country who is supplying stuff. Especially, if we know that in rural areas condoms are hard to come by.

Most of us have a plan A and a plan B, they have to operate with a C and D or not operate at all.

You're right that I should have worded that differently. I'm not going to try and explain this any more to you. You'll never get it.

And, BTW, I am far from liberal.
