I read an earlier blip about all this involving Cardinal Martini of Milan, who also apparent has some positive opinion re single women being able to be implanted with embryos so the embryos won't die.

Being an exexexexex Catholic once fascinated by theological maneuvering, I can only marvel now, these years later, at the bizarre contortions re the morally permissible.

Xingu, I have no idea, but maybe there's a clue to be found here:

He is apparently a man of considerable Cardinal knowledge.

talkin' cardinal sins?

I don't follow cardinal politics now, certainly now that the cardinal I am least enthused about, talk about despond, is pope, but by and large for decades.

But... not sure my name for the Milano cardinal is right, Martini is just the name I remember. But he might be interesting. I think he was in the running for the papacy a bit ago.

I remember when I was young, my friend finding a used condom. I think he tested it out on a latex toy goblin he created.

All of your silly jokes aside (and i'm not objecting to silliness on principle, certainly), this is an important issue. Many of the people of the third world are Catholic, and the very important disease prevention value of condoms goes unused because it has been traditionally viewed as a means of contraception condemned by the Pope. This is a crucial matter in the containment of HIV/AIDS, and several other diseases.

And it was an important issue when the Catholic Bishops lied about the condom's efficacy. It has always been an important issue and I hope the Catholic Church now sees some sense.

Here's a link re Cardinal Martini and the matter of condom use, though it isn't the piece I saw last week.

Re that other article, which I probably saw through google news, I must have misread that bit about single women and implanted embryos.

Aha, I found the bit about single women, though as with condom use, Cardinal Martini's view are limited to certain conditions re lesser of two evils.

everyone knows martini doesnt know his face from his... (sorry, no disrespect intended your eminence) he was the liberal contender for the papacy against ratzinger (Benedict XVI).
