Catholic policy responsible for AIDS epidemic, U.N. says

Prepare for the worst; you're more than likely to hear increasingly more of this sort of spin: "Catholic condom ban helping AIDS spread in Latam: U.N." (Reuters, October 23, 2007): "The rapid spread in Latin America of the virus that causes AIDS is made worse by the Roman Catholic Church's stand against using condoms, a U.N. official said on Monday." This is like saying, ex hypothesi, that the North Carolinian policy of forbidding gastroplasty (stomach stapling) is responsible for the epidemic of morose obesity in that state. What pea-brained lunacy! This is nothing more than a breath-takingly brazen pretext for Catholic-bashing hate speech.
