ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the support of the Archbishop of Sydney for the Pope's rejection of condom use to solve the global Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) epidemic. He reportedly states that condoms encourage irresponsibility and claims that Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection in Thailand is high. The contrary views that condom use in Thailand has lowered HIV transmission and that the Pope regards religious dogma as more important than African lives are also given.
