With friends like these...

There's nothing like a little paranoid conspiracy-whispering to make Christian morality seem looney.
MAPUTO, Mozambique - The head of the Catholic church in Mozambique said on Wednesday he believed some European-made condoms were deliberately tainted with the HIV/AIDS virus to kill African people.

“I know of two countries in Europe who are making condoms with (the) virus on purpose, they want to finish with African people as part of their program to colonize the continent,” Archbishop Francisco Chimoio told Reuters.

“If we are not careful we will finish in one century.

He goes on to say that the anti-AIDS drugs being sent from the West are intentionally increasing the spread of the disease as well. I'm not sure which to be more upset at: the idea that a bishop in my church really thinks we Westerners are such callous bastards or that he's giving the rubbermongers ammunition to pooh-pooh ouur teachings on contraception and sexual morality.
