Don’t leave home without it, and I don’t mean your American Express

Don’t leave home without it, and I don’t mean your American Express

An official of a town in Western Colombia, called Tulua, wants to make it mandatory by law for everyone over the age of 14 to carry a condom at all times. You never know when the urge will strike I guess.

This is the kind of idiotic thinking we get from the left-wing. Their view is that human beings are just animals, ruled by their passions, who cannot control themselves in any case. This is one of the arguments against priestly celibacy. “What man can resist the urge to have sex?”

Apart from the affront against human nature and religious belief, it’s also ridiculous on a practical level. Speaking of human nature, those who are likely to have sex without a condom won’t remember to put one on even if it is in their wallet. I remember a few years ago, a study of condom use found that among the leaders of AIDS education and prevention groups—in other words, people who are most conscious of AIDS—that even these people failed to use condoms when having sex outside of marriage. (Given the nature of these groups, it was a fairly large sample size.)

It’s just a silly idea all around
