    Why do you need to have sex in order to be knowledgeable about it? Do you need to be a heroine-addict to know that drug-addiction is dangerous?

    And as I was typing, *poof*, a Catholic. What are the odds?

    Life is dangerous. Previous herion addicts make the best counsellors, not that I dont see merit in your point

    When I first saw the title of this thread I was afraid to look and see what it was about.

    "The Pope and sex?" I would really not want to see that! 😳

    Would you use a chess coach who doesn't play chess?

    Well, I don't think the Pope coaches people on how to have sex.

    Fair point.

    Although looking at the utterly shameful debacle engulfing the Catholic Church at the moment, i don't see how that man or even the entire organisation can lecture anybody on matters of a sexual nature.

    your all missing the point... he only gets advice from his bishops/priests so he is fully informed on all aspects of sex. tho to be fair there is a lot of manuals out there on this subject.

    But surely if the topic is abstention, he should be able to lecture on the subject. Further, if it is a question of what God says on the matter or what the Bible says on the matter, then there too, I do not see why he should be excluded. You don't tell him he is not an authority on the rights and wrongs of murder just because he lacks experience in that matter.

    I don't think that is fair. Pope Benedict, unlike any of his other predecessors, has shown a lot more commitment to rectifying this problem. He has personally met victims in Australia and America. He has written to victims in Ireland just recently. It was also amongst his first actions as Pope to remove two high-profile priests accused of sexual abuse.
