Condom Bilboard Outrages Kenyan Catholics
A billboard campaign for US-based Catholics for Choice in Kenya has raised the ire of the Catholic church over its stance on condoms. The billboard reads, "We believe in God. We believe sex is sacred. We believe in caring for each other. We believe in condoms." The ad is signed off with "Good Catholics Use Condoms."
Of the Catholics For Choice campaign, one Kenyan Catholic told Jewish News One, "Let the Americans talk for the Americans. Because the Americans have their own concepts, they have their own practices, they have their own values. But for us, we are able to retain our morals, are able to retain our values, we are able to bring our children and especially the youth to value sex."
In response, Catholics For Choice President said, "The aim of the campaign is to ensure that Catholics know that despite what the bishops say, Catholics can in good conscience use condoms. Catholics in Kenya are no different. They can take the steps to protect themselves and their partners against HIV."
