AIDS-prevention poster of nun pulled after Catholic protests

.- Outraged Catholics in Taipei have succeeded in having an offensive ad pulled, reported AFP. The ad, which was part of an anti-AIDS campaign, featured a woman dressed as a nun, holding a condom and saying: "Although I don't use it, I know [what a condom is]."

The posters were put up at several Taipei transit stations.

Taipei City's Sexually-Transmitted Disease Control Center, which commissioned the poster, issued an apology. In addition, all posters and digital files were reportedly destroyed.

The Taiwanese are mainly Buddhist and Taoist. There are about 300,000 Catholics.
