Eminent Vatican theologian provides useful perspective on AIDS and condoms

Mgr Michael Schooyans is a philosopher and theologian, a member of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences and the Pontifical Academy for Life, and a Consultant of the Pontifical Council for the Family. In a 2005 paper entitled "AIDS and condoms", he set out to address the moral argument in statements made by prominent individuals from the academic and/or ecclesiastical world who attack the church and demand it change its position on the teachings on condoms and AIDS. In the light of the recent attacks upon the Catholic Church's perennial prohibition of all condom use, readers might find Mgr Schooyans' paper useful.
