Avenging Angel

And they nominated John Paul for the Nobel Peace Prize...

Vatican: condoms don't stop Aids.

The first line pretty much sums it up: "The Catholic Church is telling people in countries stricken by Aids not to use condoms..."

It's rather reminiscent of the Church's ban on vaccination back when it was first discovered; they reversed that after an 1885 smallpox epidemic in Montreal that killed 1391 people, of which 1286 were French Catholics -- most of the Protestants in the city had been vaccinated.

How many people do you suppose will die needlessly of AIDS because of this lie? Can we, like, get the International Criminal Court to arrest the Pope?

Grr.

They tried to deliver my package to my door and I wasn't here. Then they tried to deliver to the leasing office but nobody was there. I called the number on the notice they left, and was informed that even if the package is not still riding around in a truck somewhere, there's no way I can get my package until Monday because the shipping facility doesn't let people come in to collect stuff on weekends. (The package is, presumably, my new cell phone.)

Pardon me while I channel Id for a moment.
