lookning for answers to week 5 assignment on categorizing fallacies
In February 1992, a representative of the Catholic Church in Puerto Rico
gave a radio interview (broadcast on National Public Radio) in which he
said that the Church was against the use of condoms. Even though the
rate of AIDS infection in Puerto Rico is much higher than on the U.S.
mainland, the spokesman said that the Church could not support the use
of condoms because they are not absolutely reliable in preventing the
spread of the disease. “If you could prove that condoms were absolutely
dependable in preventing a person from contracting AIDS, then the
Church could support their use.”
I am not getting what fallacy this question is or why. Can someone help me

Straw man fallacy
it is the perfectionist fallacy which basically means all or nothing. the catholic church will not accept the use of condoms because they are not 100% perfect in preventing all diseases.
