"The Pope, supposedly a highly moral figure who’s being listened to especially in poor countries is committing mass murder with his totally outdated morality codex and his ignorance and lying when it comes to AIDS and condom use; planned and targeted mass murder. To me, Ratzinger is a mass murder of the scale of Hitler and Stalin."

In the story I posted the other day on John Paul II square:
"Delanoe is honoring an assassin," some chanted, saying John Paul’s opposition to condoms, along with other forms of contraception, was responsible for hundreds, even thousands of deaths to AIDS and other diseases.
The mass murderer/assassin meme has been constantly building up steam over the last couple of years. For Example Sir Elton John rant against the Catholic Church and blaming it for the death of 60 friends.
The concept of personal responsibility has been taking increasing hits over the last several decades where someone else is always to blame for the acts of another. If it isn’t the government’s fault a good fallback has been the Vatican. This meme is just so dumb it is like an anti-mystery. The more you think about it the dumber it gets and is laughable on so many levels that it is hard to plumb its stupidity. To believe this you have to believe that people who are not following Christ’s teaching on human sexuality in the first place are going to be deterred by what any Pope has said. That they see Church teaching and come away with a fornication good/condoms bad concept. What it comes down to is that the Church is at fault because they didn’t follow what the Church said. This is like getting a F on a test in class and then blaming the teacher when they choose all the answers the opposite of what the teacher taught.
The mass murderer/assassin meme is really a boomerang ideology. If you can directly call someone an assassin or infer an equivalency with Stalin for teaching something that leads to the death of many then these same activists have much to atone for. In some bathrooms they have little mirrors that on them say "The face of Aids." How about we get some that say "The face of an assassin." and place them in bathrooms. After all only abstinence and true faithfulness in marriage are 100 percent sure ways of not picking up Aids by sexual intercourse. Any other method in less than 100 percent effective and anybody that promotes them has picked some people as acceptable losses. Condom collateral damage. Would anybody allow a loved one in a chamber with nerve gas using a gas mask with the same failure rate as condoms? Yet in reality this is what these activists are proposing. This though does not make these activists Stalins and assassins. Misguided certainly, but if they accept the premise of the meme then they must first accuse themselves.
