Pope Benedict and condoms

“Buy one, get one free”

The Associated Press

Pope Benedict on his African trip.

Editor, The Times:

Regarding your editorial about the Pope’s position on condoms [“Pope Benedict’s unfortunate message,” Opinion, March 20], I say, Amen.

Now, tell him — and while you’re at it, all the school directors — that we need to install condom dispensers right next to (or included in) the apple machines. If we can sell “forbidden fruit” for a profit, surely we can give away something that will guard against the spread of this 21st-century plague, AIDS.

How about: “Buy one, get one free.”

— Del Lawrence, Bellevue
