From MG: Archbishop: HIV-infected condoms sent to kill Africans
Quote
Mozambique's Roman Catholic archbishop has accused European condom manufacturers of deliberately infecting their products with HIV "in order to finish quickly the African people".

The archbishop of Maputo, Francisco Chimoio, told the BBC that he had specific information about a plot to kill off Africans. "I know that there are two countries in Europe ... making condoms with the virus, on purpose," he alleged. But he refused to name the countries.

He added: "They want to finish with the African people. This is the programme. They want to colonise until up to now. If we are not careful we will finish in one century's time."

His views have prompted outrage from activists trying to combat HIV/Aids and help sufferers. They described the statements as ridiculous. Medical specialists said it was impossible for the Aids virus to live inside condoms for any length of time.


This is just irresponsible and shows his lack of basic knowledge about HIV. Given the church's attitude on the use of condoms, the archbishop's agenda is obvious...

Facts won't matter; the archbishop has faith in the truth of his allegations.

Still, a more plausible conspiracy in this context is, I think, that the RCC aims to breed Africa back into the Stone Age.  That way, they'll get lots of uncritical followers and lots of souls to save.

I'm sure there is a place in our politics for this man.
