“Hi Bishop Buckley,
The Kerry Diocesan Youth Service is promoting condoms to young people. Yes you heard me correctly. Earlier today a van arrived at the Kerry Diocesan Youth building in Killarney giving out condoms & lube & conducting HIV tests. This is all on the Kdys Facebook page. The Youth Service deals with children from 12 up to about 23. The Bishop of Kerry knows this happened today but did nothing because he maintains it’s independent of the Diocese but that’s not true because a Fr. Ger Godley is the chairman of the KDYS & Browne has the power to appoint a no of people to the Board”.
Personally, I support the use of condoms to stop unwanted pregnancies and prevent the spread of disease.
I’m not so sure about giving them to under 16s without the permission of their parents.
But the RCC says that artificial contraception in mortally sinful.
Yet the Kerry RCC is distributing condoms.
Is that double standards?
Just like they condem homosexuality and yet many of the bishops and priests are at it like pink rabbits.
Should teachings and practice not be in sync?
