Is the Pope Hurting People in the Name of Jesus?

FoxNews discusses the controversy over recent appointee Harry Knox's condemnation of papal comments on condom use in Africa. Of course, the network presents yet another fair and balanced analysis; do they really think that it is a genuine discussion when both guests are in agreement?

Best part is at 4:19 - "Why not bring in the KKK, too? They hate Catholics, too!" We may as well exhume the anti-Catholic Nazis to serve on presidential advisory committees as long as we are making illogical references! I mean, the Nazis are generally a stronger appeal to the emotions than the KKK; why not bring out the big guns?

Also, I laughed so hard that I choked on my coffee at 5:15 with the claim that anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice. Really? Tell that to a gay couple the next time that the Catholic church takes up a second collection solely for the purpose of funding anti-homosexual legislation.

just another insight into why we hate fox. completely biased, making points on issues that have nothing to do with the problem in hand, hollow statements, COMPLETE lack of scientific evidence. 'body of work that suggests condoms promote the spread of HIV' where is this so called work?!?! what a bunch of lunatic crackpots! it makes me sooo angry!!

At 6:02: "To dismiss people who disagree with you as bigots or crazy or acting in the service of satan ends the conversation..." Aren't these guys just dismissing this person as a bigot? Of course Knox's language isn't going to persuade Catholics to reconsider their stance on the use of condoms for protection against HIV either. Let's hope that other voices are heard (there are many).
