    "It (AIDS) cannot be overcome by the distribution of condoms. On the contrary, they increase the problem," he said in response to a question about the Church's widely contested position against the use of condoms.

    So much for promoting a "culture of life". I guess it only counts if the life you want saved is following the arbitrary religious rules you think your God wants them to.

    Can anyone confirm this? I confess to knowing nothing about the pope, other than he's German.

    Yeah, he was. The official position seems to be he had no choice at the time, being a child in Nazi Germany.

    It is not that Ratzinger was a member of the Hitler Youth that bothers me it is the fact that he is still a member.

    This truly appalling man is responsible for so much of the suffering in the world just like his predesessor was in his turn.

    It was a terrorist organization of German young men who supported the fascist regime.

    I hear no reports of Hitler Youth membership from the Jewish or Communist populations in Germany.

    Of course Jews were not allowed to join the Hitler Youth - as for comminists in Germany - I doubt very much they were exempt from membership.

    They were exempt from membership because of their restricted membership of the "being in a concentration camp club" made it impossible for them to attend the meetings.
