Stalin asked: “How many divisions has the Pope got? The Soviet Union no longer exists, and the Vatican is still there. There must be a reason. It’s just that I can’t find it. If someone kills a human being with a knife or a pistol they are violating God’s law. Do not kill. If by words, you induce people not to use a condom and for this reason, millions of people die of AIDS it’s a matter of faith. Applied theology. I have done catechism. I have read the Gospel. I didn’t find that Jesus Christ forbade the use of a condom. Even then they were used. It’s not a modern invention. The Church is bothered about the life of Eluana, but it ignores death from AIDS. Christ did not forbid priests to get married. He didn’t oblige them to live an alien life, distant from a natural condition of man, that is the family. Christ instead attacked the Pharisees, the priests of that time. The ones who handed him over to the Romans to put him on the cross. A woman cannot serve at Mass nor become a priest. Who has decided that? I don’t reckon it was Jesus. A priest, a man who has not been a father, a husband, a lover, how can he judge a father, a husband, a lover? The Church is interested in sex. It discusses it every day. The sex of the others. It explains when it is legitimate, how to do it and with whom. If you control sex, you control society. The Church is rich. Very rich. And among the banks, it is the biggest property owner in the world. Its wealth is due to the work of millions of people over the centuries. Their work, their goods have gone to the Vatican, not to a family that they couldn’t have. If the Church is dealing with what we do under the blanket, it’s right that we deal with the sex life of the priests. Even for them, the time of sexual liberation has come with or without the condom. Sex is a gift of Creation. Religious men and women must be allowed to enjoy it. I propose a referendum in the Vatican to end the sexual slavery of those in the religious life and for equal access to the sacraments for men and women. In the secrecy of the vote, the priests and the nuns would vote “yes”. When you vote, God sees you, the Pope does not.
