Vatican Sides With AIDS In Brazil

From the Vatican (the same people who jailed Galileo for suggesting that the earth orbited the sun) comes this:

A Brazilian singer who promoted the use of condoms in an anti-AIDS campaign has been dropped from the lineup of next month’s Christmas concert at the Vatican, organizers said Friday.

Daniela Mercury was dropped after Vatican authorities read statements by her in the Brazilian press that went “against the moral doctrine of the church,” said Eligio Ermeti, a spokesman for the agency organizing the event.

I’m wondering how much more out of touch the Catholic church can get?
