← Pope 'could cancel UK visit' over 'offensive' Foreign Office memo

Quote: "If any enterprising manufacturer of rubber goods has the courage to market "Benedict Condoms" I would certainly buy them."

The original document (including do a jig with the Queen, or whatever) was clearly in jest so for the RCC to take offence just shows how humourless its members are.

Question. The RCC doctrine is that sex is for reproduction only, hence the ban on artificial contraception. Older men who might benefit from Viagra are usually well past the reproductive age (well, certainly their partners are likely to be – unless the man is very lucky!). So does the RCC ban the use of Viagra (or Cialis and similar)? After all, it is purely a recreational drug (but it sure does work!)
