Back to the sex ed stuff...

I went to an all male private catholic school in one of the southern states and they taught us to use condoms.  You may understand why I find it odd that other schools in other places teach abstinence only.

That goes against the pope's official decision.

On a second not, did the priest's molest you? The pope is ok with that.

I was not, but the priest from my grade/middle school was accused of molesting kids in Chicago or something.  Perhaps that's why they moved him south.  I dunno what became of it though.  I haven't bothered to spend the 30 seconds to google search him because I can only recall his initials, as he was known as just Father J.B.

Some states demand Abstinence Only. Like Texas. Heck, Bush made a bill for groups to go into Africa and teach them abstinence as a way to control the spread of AIDS.

What a succesful campaign. South Africa is now the AIDS capitol of the world

I heard it worked pretty well in Uganda. I imagine that in some of these places it is hard to get condoms.

Especially when you have pricks like Darth Sidious telling them that they'll go to Hell for using them...

I don't really care what combination of techniques works best so long as it works, and neither should you. In a lot of these countries there exists a strong taboo against using condoms. Education on safe-sex can do a lot, but for many, encouraging abstinence from sex with multiple partners is the most realistic solution to curbing the spread of HIV.

My favourite quote on this is from Stephen fry, who has done a great deal of work with AIDS in Africa

"There was a time when [Uganda] had the highest incidence rates of HIV/AIDs in the world but through an amazing initiative called ABC:

Abstinence,
Be faithful
Correct use of condoms

Those three, and I'm not denying that abstinence is a very good way of not getting AIDs it really is, it works; so does being faithful but so do condoms and do not deny it!"

Yes, but the point is that the Pope actively denies having that combination, he denies condoms! The church has made aid conditional on not giving out condoms, the pope has spread the lie that condoms make it worse!

So which one is right? Since they have identical scriptures, surely one is definitely absolutely right.

They will all claim to be right.  As for Christianity as a whole, I would define it as all religious denominations that currently believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God, died for man's sins, rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven with his body, and only through belief in him can a persons sins be forgiven.  That belief appears to be common amoung all of the current Christian religions, though there may be some other common beliefs, such as the virgin birth.

Certainly, anyone can claim to be right. But when it comes to this, one definitely absolutely is. Does it make you sad that the lunatics in the Deep South that stone biology teachers for stating the fact of evolution are adhering to scripture more than you? Even then, they do so on the Sabbath while wearing two types of thread.

I have no problem with schools teaching Creationism, so long as it is taught in religion class. It is not and has never been scientific.

If the scriptures say so, then yeah. There would probably be genocides over which one though, unless that was very clearly specified.

So then you believe that Christians should only be expected to agree over those things that are clearly explained in the Bible. I agree.
