NY Catholics Outraged by Condoms

I don't know why this gives me such perverse joy, but a story in the Post today reports that Cardinal Edward Egan and Bklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio are "outraged" that the city has decided to distribute, free of charge, some 26 million subway themed condoms. The religious leaders say such an act on the city's part threatens to "degrade society." Who are they kidding? What's truly degrading is their church's continued ban on contraception, which, if you ask some people, is tantamount to inducing homicide. Thankfully, Bloomberg and his administration are holding firm. Add another check in my book in favor of Mayor Mike.
