More French government anger at papal remarks; protest at cathedral

From: http://www.catholicculture.org/

Blasting Pope Benedict for his remarks on AIDS and condom use, French Education Minister Xavier Darcos said on March 29 that “to go to Africa and tell people they shouldn't use condoms is criminal.” “"I think the Pope's comments were a bit distorted,” he added, “but all the same, to not encourage using condoms in developing countries is extremely dangerous.”

Sixty activists protested outside the Lyon cathedral during a Mass celebrated by Cardinal Philippe Barbarin. Their banner read, “The condom, it's life, the Church bans it.”
