    Ed, The spread of aids could be stopped and almost eradicated if people would use good moral practices. Illicit moral practices are what has brought about aids. God doesn't send illnesses like this to us, it is the natural consequence of our actions. Suppose your mother had used contraceptives or abortion to get rid of you or Pres. Obama.
    I am sure she was none too rich when she had Barack.

    Fact: Use of condoms helps slow the spread of AIDS.

    Fact: People who are poor and cannot afford to feed, educate, or fully support a child till it can become an adult should consider not adopting or having children.

    Fact: Villfying President Barack Obama because he is not a believer of catholic positions does help to alienate many young people who see, quite accurately, that Obama is a significantly better President than his unnecessary unjust war starting, Pro-Death Penalty, massive debt building, anti-Poor predecessor.

    Mr. Obama is far more honest than (so-called) Fathers Jenkins and McBrien. At least Mr. Obama does not pretend to be against abortion...pretend to be against contraception...pretend to be Catholic.

    Pray for them all...pray for the conversion of their hearts and the salvation of theirs souls...cuz from here, it ain't lookin' too good presently.

    A Catholic Priest publicly supporting abortion? Our society has gone mad. What happens next?

    It is not the Catholic Church that is hypocritical. The Church's structure is formed by the Holy Spirit. But we as weak humans sin against our Lord and our Church. It is by our actions as men and women of Christ to stand up and fight this hypocrisy. Although we are all sinners, we are called to correct our brothers and sisters who are making serious sins that affect us all. That is why we stand and call for Father Jenkins to be ousted, excommunicated for his actions. This is a case of 'love the sinner, hate the sin'; which is tough love.

    You know what Mother Angelica says when someone tells her no one wants anything to do with a church full of hypocrites?

    The hypocrisy of the christian church has stopped amazing me. I'm sorry its that way but it is. John Paul was a great man in my humble opinion but the last great church has sold its soul. I hope the catholic church finds its soul again. I am a sinner who will not judge but it would nice to see a church we could all turn to. We sinners and non believers want to be wrong even when we aren't

    I thought that the N.D. board had put pressure on Fr. Jenkins and he was just weak. Now I read this. Some how this man has to be removed. His actions are unconscionable.

    Unbelievable. What other surprises are in store for us with regard to Father Jenkins? Should we expect his own version of Luther's "95-theses" nailed to the doors of Notre Dame?

    That a Catholic priest should be complicit in the taking of innocent, African children's lives is utterly shocking. If we are not shocked, we should check our pulse. This man has lost all credibility and should immediately lose his position as a leader of students.
