Carla Bruni Criticizes Pope For Anti-Condom Message

Say What? Carla Bruni's Straight Dope on the Pope

"I was born Catholic, I was baptised, but in my life I feel profoundly secular. I find that the controversy coming from the pope's (anti-condom) message — albeit distorted by the media — is very damaging. In Africa it's often church people who look after sick people. It's astonishing to see the difference between the theory and the reality."

French first lady Carla Bruni rebuked Pope Benedict XVI for saying last March that condoms worsen Africa's AIDS problem. Bruni said that the church should evolve on the issue of contraception and protection. Historians say it's unprecedented for a first lady to criticize the pope in traditionally Catholic France.
