Be careful what you say....

Vatican clips condom campaigner from Christmas concert lineup
ROME, Italy (AP) -- A Brazilian singer who promoted the use of condoms in an anti-AIDS campaign has been dropped from the lineup of next month's Christmas concert at the Vatican, organizers said Friday.

Daniela Mercury was dropped after Vatican authorities read statements by her in the Brazilian press that went "against the moral doctrine of the church," said Eligio Ermeti, a spokesman for the agency organizing the event.

Of course, CNN, thinking that thruth is determined by polls, asks the following question: Was the Vatican right to drop a singer who promotes condom use to prevent Aids from its Christmas concert?

After I voted ...... "Yes" (duhhhhh....), the results were displayed to show out of touch with reality I am:
YES....23%....14902 votes
NO.....77%....48555 votes

My self esteem having been shattered because I apparently voted the wrong way, I closed the CNN window and went back to working with our Christmas"Holiday" lights and decorations.
