    These comments are so shallow, untrue and such slanted propaganda - they are not even capable of a short response. Get the facts on what Catholics really believe - don't make general untrue statements about condoms, killing kids, conception of the soul etc and lump them into some kind of Vatican PR stunt. I could write a book about every point you just made and how slanted and untrue your comments really are. I invite readers to really search for the truth behind these comments made by Nova about Catholic belief. Just one very simple place to start would be catholic.com and even better - read some of the work written by our current Pope - but there is soooo much out there that really puts these points Nova makes in a true perspective. I pray that Nova will find peace and eventually find the love of Jesus Christ. I for one will pray for Nova. God Bless

    Evolution is the island of sanity in the turbulent ocean of the insane Catholic Church. You go out sailing on the rough ocean of insanity for a day, killing masses by banning condoms in Africa and thus allowing AIDS to spread, rallying against stem cell research preventing treatments which could save loads of people. Let's not forget the belief that real demons and human possession really exist, right out their in the raging storm of insanity, poisoning society with literally medieval style fears and obstructing the help of people with psychological problems. Trying to keep the persona of peace while you viciously obstruct the rights of gays based based on your idea that it's a bad lifestyle: your evidence? None. You take your belief from tradition and obscure bible verses. But I notice far less than was needed to accept evolution, so in reality the anti-gay sentiment is simple bigotry. Then theres the masses of people burdened with children they can't afford, or that burden a life they when they weren't ready to settle down - or at worst, kills them in a dangerous situation in childbirth, but scripture not tradition is responsible for this. The idea that the thing is occupied by a soul on conception is relatively new, the idea something which has no way of thinking constitutes something which can be 'killed' in a human sense. St. Thomas Aquinas, Pope Innocent III, and Pope Gregory XIV believed that a fetus does not have a soul until "quickening," or when the fetus begins to kick and move, so this is clearly a malleable position in Catholic tradition. But the Catholic Church has started a campaign and now no amount of suffering caused and inaccuracy incurred can stop it, just like evolution until recently - the only thing that stopped that was public pressure - it was simply a PR stunt in the corrupt organization of the Vatican.

    And don't try the 'that's not my Catholicism!' trick. This is the Vatican's Catholicism - and that's the management of your organization.
