Catholic Churches Say Condoms Don't Stop AIDS

Chances are you've heard about this already, it's causing quite an uproar.
The thing that really pisses me off is it's not just benign, you know. Ignorance kills.
Spreading the word to these countires is really really difficult b/c the ones most ravaged by AIDS tend to be poor and technologically stunted. I guess I'm looking to those of you interested in information theory for answers.
