The Mistake is Vatican II
According to the Washington Post:
"A Catholic church in the central Swiss city of Lucerne has sparked controversy among believers with an AIDS awareness campaign that involves distributing to teenagers condoms bearing the slogan 'protect thy neighbor as thyself.'
The church plans to hand out 3,000 condoms as part of an effort to engage young people turned off by the Vatican's long-standing opposition to the use of condoms.
Spokesman Florian Flohr says the campaign has drawn mostly positive reactions but some Catholics have expressed concern.
Officials at the diocese of Basel didn't immediately respond Monday to requests for comment. A spokesman in the neighboring diocese of Chur was quoted by Swiss television SF1 describing the condom campaign as 'a mistake.'
How does a blasphemy like this pose as a "mistake?" If you can plot out such nonsense and claim it as error, could you do the same with all of the heresy of Vatican II---and jettison it once and for all?
