See What I Mean?

In response to a blunt commentary on the Church in the Vanderbilt student newspaper sparked by the Pope's comments on condoms, Cristina Villarreal, the chair of the Vandy+Catholic board, wrote this:

"This past month, Pope Benedict XVI made his first papal visit to Africa, highlighting the message of 'Christ and the good news of his Cross, the mystery of supreme love' in the continent where HIV/AIDS has hit the hardest. His reiteration of the church’s opposition to condom use as a method of prevention of the transmission of HIV has sparked controversy but also provides a good opportunity for us to look at the facts surrounding the issue."
