LONDON, May 24, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - British pop music star Elton John has attacked the Catholic Church and its position on condom use as a reason for the demise of 60 of his friends to the sexually-transmitted disease, AIDS.Of course, it had nothing to do their "alternative" lifestyles...While it's unfortunate that his friends died, and we should pray for them and Elton; they surely did not rely on the moral teachings of the Church about whether to use condoms while they were humping each others backsides, did they? Besides, the very act of sodomy is intrinsically evil itself. What's love (of condoms) got to do with it?
I mean, let's face it. Does Elton have a clue, or does homosexuality really make one that stupid?
Are we to suppose to believe that the conversation of Butch and Mango, leading up to their show of "affection", included a statement like, "Well, Mango, the Vatican is opposed to me using of condoms while I show you how much I "love" you (it contraceptive, you know)...So if either us catches AIDS, it'll be Rome's fault, not ours. I just hope "
I'm beginning to wonder if maybe there's a yet unknown and undiscovered STD which affects one's brain. We already know that practicing homosexuals suffer a deadly spiritual disease, as do all who engage in gravely sinful acts.
The fact is that we reap what we sow. If one steeps himself in the world, engaging in abhorent and deadly acts of sinful behavior, one should not be surprised at his self-inflicted pain, suffering and death. Free will can be abused by ignoring the will of God and choosing to satisfy one's own will, instead. Rejecting the good, which is an abuse of one's freedom, leads to bondage and slavery, and ultimately to one's own death.
