Catholics and Condoms

It has been condemned in Brazil for its anti-abortion stance, it is suspected of sheltering child abusers in the US, Portugal is thinking of legalising gay marriage, Spain is on the brink of legislating for abortion on demand, and the Italians can't be relied on to breed the next generation of churchgoers. All in all, Catholics in the developed world treat the Holy Seen as a mad old uncle who has had one sherry too many at a family party: don't take what he says too seriously, he's just in one of his moods.
