1.) Feronia: No they aren't. That is the NATURE of free speech. They can live their life as they wish, the same as anyone else, but like anyone else they also have to listen to things they don't care about. simplest solution here is don't listen to the pope if you don't believe in Catholocism.
2.) MikeyDB..come now, isn't that a little bigoted to assume africans are that stupid?
That they knowingly break the churches position on extra and pre-marital sex but then get all confused by their condom policy? They aren't retards. Condoms could be falling from the sky they still wouldn't use one for the same reason they don't now. If your wife catches you with a condom in your pocket she'll cut your willy off, same as here.
I hate to break it to you , but if you don't like the Catholic religion you don't have to follow it, but that doesn't mean you get to tell other people how to follow their religion either, its not a democracy or a wiki-religion. You can't change parts that are now socially unacceptable.
If its unacceptable, and its not physically doing anything, just preaching. Just ignore it..and sooner or later it will fade away like many religions before it.
