Pope - ery

Someone very kindly asked me to draw them a picture about the official Catholic church position on the use of condoms.

I have to confess, I love this sort of story, a very human ability to ignore the facts on the ground in favour of some strange set of principles. Anyhow, this is what I came up with.

Aside from (I hope) the fun of drawing the Pope fly-swatting condoms, there is of course, also the anger about the strictures that this policy imposes on devout catholics around the world. One of the more serious examples is in southern Africa, where HIV infection is endemic and little pieces of rubber are an effective way of preventing further infections.
