Argentinean bishop says anti-catholic press created condom scandal in Spain

.- Bishop Jorge Lona of San Luis, Argentina, said last week the “anti-catholic” press twisted the statements of the Secretary of the Bishops Conference of Spain regarding condoms and later portrayed the clarification by the Conference as a “reversal.” “There is a large sector of the international media that is against the Church and is trying to confuse people about our position,” Bishop Lona told the Argentinean daily “Diario de la Republica.”

He said the entire incident was due to an intentionally “poor journalistic interpretation” and that it was not a coincidence that the “supposed news” quickly spread around the world.

His diocese republished the statement from the Bishops Conference in its weekly bulletin “Ave Maria.”

“That statement by the leaders and by the protagonists of this story, the members of the Bishops Conference of Spain, clarifies what really happened,” Bishop Lona said.

He reiterated the teaching of the Church that the “fundamental elements in the fight against AIDS should be abstinence and conjugal fidelity.  This is how people can be sure they will not contract the disease.  The other way is prone to failure with fatal consequences,” he warned.
