Malawi Muslims: "Ban Condoms To Stop HIV & AIDS"

Oh! So it's the lack of condoms that deter young people in Islamic countries from promiscuous sex, and not the threat of being buried up to the shoulders and pelted with stones until death!

Why didn't we think of this before? Silly Infidels!

LILONGWE In a desperate attempt to curb expansion of HIV and AIDS in the Malawian society, Muslim traditional leaders have demanded a ban on condom use for unmarried people, arguing it was fueling the spread of the pandemic in the secular, but diverse religious southern African nation. [...]

Kadewere added: "Unmarried people are having sex for fun because there are condoms. But if you observe in Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia where condoms are banned, the HIV and AIDS prevalence rate is very low. People are using condoms here, when they sleep with strangers, but when they get to know each other, they stop using them.

"If these were banned, people could be afraid to be promiscuous, because they would doubt each other's statuses. If there are people who can abstain they will start practicing abstinence when the condoms are outlawed. Abstinence was the only powerful tool among unmarried people that would help minimize the rate at which the pandemic is being spread and nothing else." (Source)
