  • The Knights of St John are one of the last extant orders of crusading knights. They are also known as the Knights of Malta. Mostly they help the poor now.
  • Doesn't affect me I only use Trump brand condoms. Thinnest skin in the world
  • Catholics have their heads so far up their own asses that they can't even bring themselves to support the use of condoms.
  • If it wasn't for Trump's golden shower report this would be the best story of the day!

  • That's gonna hurt when it snaps back.
  • What about the shrubbery?

    It's a tax dodge, like any other catholic charity. My grandfather was one. The other, less wealthy grandfather was a Knight of Columbus.

    It's low in calories and easily obtained. What's not to like?

  • This might show an irrational distrust of religion on my part, but when I read the headline I thought it was going to be about priests deliberately putting holes in condoms and then distributing them in poorer countries. Then, when the inevitable pregnancies and STD spread starts showing up, use it as an opportunity to spread doubt and misinformation about them to people with poor education.

    I mean, I'm not pleasantly surprised, but I am reflecting on my knee-jerk hatred for organised religious groups.

    /Thankfully, this is just a run of the mill religious authority castigating people who put well being before dogma story.

    I don't think the actual facts are any better than your nightmare scenario. An order of Catholics is going rogue because they want to be total assholes and Pope Francis doesn't want Catholics to act like that.

    Even worse, the guy who was fired prompting the whole mess still took the asshole route, but he wasn't an asshole fast enough for this "conservative" cardinal, so he cut him and lied about Pope Francis making the decision. Because said cardinal apparently is only so very, very concerned about hemming as closely to scripture as possible when it has to do with sex slaves getting as much AIDS as possible, not so much about himself bearing false witness. The "conservative" mindset showing its true colors once again....
  • There is a reason the Papacy exterminated the various orders of the Knights Templar on Friday, October 13, 1307.

    Looks like they missed a branch.
  • 2016  or 1620?
  • The Maltese Condom?  Its what dreams are made of.

    How do you feel about unorganized religion?
  • The Pope didn't want the Maltese falcon and not having to take responsibility for it.
  • Damn, 1 minute
  • Russ1642: Catholics have their heads so far up their own asses that they can't even bring themselves to support the use of condoms.

    Graphic for the verbally challenged.

    That reason mostly being that the French crown owed them a lot of money, to the point where it was cheaper and easier for the king to convince the pope to abolish the order and let him execute its leaders than to pay them back.

    There was only one order of knights templar, the other militant orders where entirely separate, and apart from most of the lower ranking knights templar transferring over to them they were unaffected by that whole affair.

    On the same level as people who believe in ghosts. I don't think there's any good evidence to support their position, but it's mostly harmless as they don't try to inflict their beliefs on anyone via organised political actions led by a bullshiat artist.

    I don't think I'm articulating this very gracefully, but whatever people think to themselves is their business. And if some of those people want to get together in private and have fun with their ideas, that's cool too. It's when they start pushing their conclusions on other people and indoctrinating children that I have a problem.
