How awfully silly?
I cannot understand why, that is thinking from the point of view "I am He", why anyone in the Church especially those who supposed to be intelligent and faithful believers, keep revisiting birth control of any kind. I completely fail to understand why the questions of the secular press and I add most of the so called catholic press, have any validity when it comes to taught dogma and doctrine. Even the Pope should answer read Humanae Vitae. Why keep revisiting at the urging of those who are determined either through ambition or obstinate wrong hardheadedness to get permission to sin. There are no nuances of belief. Christ said plainly, "A yes is a yes and a no is a no, anything else is from the wicked one". That also applies to those who question the Teachings of the Church looking for an "in" to boast of their egos and to make their egos profitable and rewarded by material riches. The Holy Father Benedict should not be still thinking the matter over, it is not to the benefit of our souls. The Church throughout history has spoken and cannot be changed . This is the primal heresy arising from the Spirit of Vatican 2.
If we had faith and the prelates whose ego is so large they think they can handle the world's press and time and time again they make the Church a second best and if you cant be honest about our Church's teachings just shut up and let as Fulton Sheen said, "Let the (Faithful) Laity save the Church. Let's face it it was the Layman Francis of Assisi who did it in the middle ages.
If there is any real faith in the Church, She can say join Me, get baptized, go to confession and even HIV or Aids can be cured as and when your sins are forgiven and you do not commit them again. Pride in the world's efforts have never cured anything.
