Katolska kyrkan på Filippinerna motarbetar hälsoministeriets propaganda för kondomanvänding i Hiv /Aidsbekämpning med hjälp av artister och filmskådespelare.

“The Catholic bishops of the Philippines urged movie stars and artists not to endorse condoms, asking that they remain good examples who safeguard “the morality of the people.”

Archbishop Angel Lagdameo of Iloilo, who is the former President of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), told Radio Veritas that the Church disagrees with the use of artists to promote condoms.

“That is why we are appealing to them not to allow themselves to be used by the Department of Health because as artists, they have a public image that is emulated by people,” he said, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

“As public figures, they have an obligation to society to safeguard morality, especially that of the youth who admire them.” “

Ärkebiskopen Lagdameo kallar  offentligt  hälsoministern och läkaren Esperanza Cabral “stubborn woman… leading the innocents to hell.”

Esperanza Cabral uttalar sig också angående sk naturlig familjeplanering

”While natural family planning can reduce the rate of unwanted pregnancies, she correctly points out that “it is not the best method” and that there are other, better methods for a couple to manage the number of their children and that they must have informed choice on what method suits them best.”

“Cabral stressed the need for the country to fulfill its commitments as embodied in the government’s Medium-Term Development Plan and the UN Millennium Development Goal – and these are very much related to the reduction of infant and maternal death as well as the control of widespread chronic diseases like TB, malaria and HIV/AIDS”

PS  Celibatära män i form av katolska biskopar har mage att motarbeta hälsoministeriets rekommendation om kondomanvändning i ett land som beräknas ha 1,5 miljoner gatubarn som lever sämre än hundar gör i Sverige.

”Samhället måste skydda moralen”. ”Särskilt ungdomens ” säger en katolsk biskop i vars hemland det lär finnas 1,5 miljoner gatubarn utsatta för inte bara hunger, sjukdomar och fattigdom utan också prostitution, droger och sexuella övergrepp.

Men som sagt.  Ingen reklam för kondomer. ”Samhället måste skydda moralen ”.

Esperanza Cabral ”leder oskyldiga till helvetet” påstår  präktige ärkebiskopen Lagdameo
