Faithfulness, not condoms are not the answer

A good article on several levels.

But the practical (as opposed to moral ) reason is found here:

Were the condom, even on the most effective use, to make any mark on the rising infection rates of transmission of HIV the Aids virus, the money needed annually would equal more than four times the total amount spent annually on all Aids activities in Africa by the Global Programme on Aids.

And, as I have noted elsewhere, the "safe sex" message essentially pushes promiscuity without guilt, but the real victims are women and girls (and alas sometimes young boys) who can be exploited.
