Had to walk away from this one and clear my head.
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.
Is it misplacing Burden of Proof
I would guess straw man -- because from everything I've ever read or heard, the Church will not approve of any birth control method.
Other teachers may have different opinions.
