Pope: TSA Screeners Should Wear Condoms

Great satire from CMR:
VATICAN CITY - In what might amount to a complete reversal on longstanding Church teaching, the Pope has indicated that under certain circumstances it might be licit for TSA workers to employ the use of full body condoms.

The pontiff makes the comments in a book-length interview with a journalist from "Trains, Planes, and Volkswagens" magazine, "Don't Touch the Junk: Dirty, Sexy, Airport" The Vatican newspaper ran excerpts of the book Saturday.

Church teaching has long opposed condoms since they're a form of artificial contraception. The Vatican has been harshly criticized for its position given the AIDS crisis.

Benedict said that for TSA agents and their victims -- for whom contraception isn't a central issue -- condoms are not a moral solution. But he said they could be justified "in the intention of reducing the risk of infection."

  1. Now I am going to have dreams of Inspector Drebbin working for the TSA. Or should I say nightmares.
