Condom distribution at church - UCC likes the idea

CondomThe Institute on Religion & Democracy is blasting the religious denomination of President Barack Obama for its recent stance on condom distribution inside houses of worship.

Recently, the HIV and AIDS Network of the United Church of Christ (UCC) said condoms should be handed out at places of worship. The statement was issued during a presentation to the denomination's Wider Church Ministries Board and also advocated making condoms available at faith-based educational settings.

A UCC executive said that condom distribution is a matter of life and death and that condoms should be made available to save the lives of young people.

Calling it the denomination's "moral responsibility" to make condoms available, the UCC's executive for health and wellness advocacy said "people of faith make condoms available because we have chosen life so that we and our children may live."

Alan Wisdom, with the Institute on Religion & Democracy, believes the UCC's statement is dangerous. "It sends a message to youth particularly, the kids who meet in their Alan Wisdom (IRD)Sunday schools, that the church really has no expectation of them in terms of sexuality, that it expects them to enter into multiple sexual relationships in the same way the world does, and that its only concern is they not pick up diseases," he notes.

The UCC's condom distribution is the latest step in the denomination's departure from its Puritan roots, Wisdom concludes.

Is it 'morally responsible' to distribute condoms?

Oh my gosh!! That was an easy poll to vote on!! I've always known the UCC was out of what (IMHO), but this takes the cake. Now what did we learn from this, children? Listen to the words of Jesus . . ."Go and sin no more." I don't think he meant use a condom next time. I'm sorry . . . this is just too much. I hope you are having a more relaxed day and that Sharon is making the right improvements. You are both in our prayers. Love & hugs, Penny

The poll results when I voted no, where:

Yes - 5.40% No - 92.99%


Some church, huh?

I agree with Penny.

And... does Obama really have a church? Public funds for abortions? Same sex marriages? Stem-cell research? Satan worshipper maybe, Church no.
