The condom-wearing statue was also criticized by local Catholic leaders who said their religion does not approve of condom use.

Apparently, condom use has a statue of limitations.

Statue cock trifecta in play?

I'll bet the French are pretty tickled by this.

Well, maybe if it were ribbed for her pleasure, and not just ribbed, they'd be happier.

/especially with the sandy vaginas the officials have

There has to be at least a trace of irony in that statement.

Don't blame this on women needing to wipe the sand out of their box... It's the catholic priests in the town that seem to have a problem with it.
Over a little respect who invented the device to prevent a million precious snowflakes from making the world more over crowded than it actually is.

That's western Europe. Eastern Europe, not so much....

Actually the article is wrong. The Catholic church does approve of condoms for the use in the gay community to stop the spread of AIDS. Straight people don't have to worry about condoms because straights have far less reported cases of STD's then the homosexual community.

They can have by giant condom when they take it from my dead, cold, giant penis.

French Ticklers, Black Mambos, Crocodile Ribs, sheaths that are not only designed to protect, but also to enhance the stimulation of sexual congress.

Have you got one?

Have I got one? well.. no, but I can go down the road anytime I want and walk into Harry's and hold my head up high and say in a loud and steady voice, "Harry, I want you to sell me a condom, in fact today I think I'll have a French Tickler for I am a protestant."

Ribbed condoms suck. Trojan Ultra-Thin is the way to go.

Loved the visual. What said condom may look like, only a lot bigger. And on a statue. And unrolled. And probably not blue.

csb time in a semi-related matter from TFA; I know the inventor of silicone.

/yes, I have thanked him for his glorious contributions to humanity.
//boobies.
 
2011-03-09 08:07:03 PM  
Sorry, quick correction; the inventor of silicone for uses such as implants.
 
2011-03-09 09:23:27 PM  
Sounds like there's some stiff opposition.

"The condom-wearing statue was also criticized by local Catholic leaders who said their religion does not approve of condom use."

The blood-donation center was also criticized by local Jehovah's Witnesses who said their religion does not approve of healthcare.

I didn't read the article...

So what's the thrust of the story?

Turn it inside-out. Then it will be for your pleasure......

You have brought shame and embarrassment to this town and it's proud, enormous, willy-shaped fountain.

I though it was because the gays are going to Hell anyways so what difference does a few extra sins make?

Since the church's objection to condoms is based on their use as contraceptive, the use of condoms by gay people is not a problem.
