Anti-Pope activists can give out condoms in Sydney

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Another quick update on the Pope's visit to Australia – last month we told how draconian new laws had been introduced for the duration of the Papal visit which would prevent protests and stop demonstrators from handing out condoms to pilgrims attending World Youth Day. Well, following an appeal, a New South Wales court has overturned the law and anti-Catholic protesters can now dish out prophylactics to their hearts content.

If they're not stuffed with communion wafers, what's the point?

I think the peace love and christian charity mentioned in the article will fly right out of the window if anyone doesn't swallow their holy wafers right away.

Young people know their limitations and contradictions, but when they come to listen during their holidays to an old man of 81 years that probably has not a special charisma, but they are persuaded by his insight, rigor and clarity. And young people want answers. So they are delighted that someone intends to improve them, someone who makes them want to be better people.
