Cardinal Lopez Trujillo weighs in on condom use and AIDS

.- The president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, told the RCN Radio Network in Colombia last week that the Church does not approve of the use of condoms because their use “implies sexually immoral conduct.”

Speaking from Rome, the cardinal lamented the confusion caused by the incorrect interpretation of statements by the Secretary of the Spanish Bishops Conference, Father Juan Antonio Martinez Camino.

Cardinal Lopez Trujillo read the clarification of the Spanish bishops on air and he reiterated that the “poor interpretation spread throughout the media,” adding as well that, “The statement should be understood in the sense of the teaching that holds that the use of condoms implies sexually immoral conduct.”

Likewise, he recalled that, “The Church collaborates effectively and meaningfully in the prevention of AIDS, promoting the education of persons in faithful conjugal love that is open to life.”
