One of the ongoing struggles we’re having with the religious right is over their willingness to lie about the efficacy of condoms. The lie that condoms don’t work is everywhere—promoted by the Catholic Church, embedded in the public school abstinence-only programs, being promoted under the guise of HIV prevention with federal funds, decorating pamphlets given to young people at church. It’s hard enough to convince people to use condoms every time without fail when they believe that condoms work, but if they believe they don’t, then why would they use them? In a lot of ways, I think this video has the potential to be the most helpful, because it addresses this deadly lie.
