Cardinal Burns Condoms

Kenya’s top Roman Catholic church official burned condoms and safe sex literature Saturday. Cardinal Maurice Otunga and two gynecologists prayed and sang before setting fire to several boxes of condoms and 100 copies of pamphlets promoting safe sex.

The pamphlets encouraged condom use to fight the spread of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

An estimated 1 million of Kenya’s 26 million people have HIV.
