Busy, Busy, Busy

The blog posts here have been a tad lack-luster for the past few days, I apologize. I've been running around Mobile trying to organize my college's participation in the 40 Days for Life. It turns out to be much more work than I would expect it to be at a Jesuit institution. Ah well.

While I've been running around South Alabama, the Holy Father has been jet setting around Africa. And sparking quite the political controversy as well. Well, at least he has PBS in a huff. 

Making the correct statement that condoms are not the solution to HIV/AIDS, our Pope is being crucified by the US and UK media - unsurprisingly. 

One article reads

"What the pope says is an ideal for the Catholic church. But he needs to look at the realities on the ground."

Silly. Silly. Silly.

The Catholic Church IS "the ground." It points towards truth, something desperately needed by those suffering with AIDS. How can someone promoting truth be told to lie in order to placate the masses and by consequence, lead to their destruction? How? 

Well being a PBS lefty is a good start.
