One More Reason to Deny Condoms

From All Africa via Christianity Today.

Why recommend abstinence? It is the only way I can first establish and then defend the rights of the spouse who has suffered a grievous injustice. If I say: "Just use a condom", I am implicitly overriding the right of the faithful spouse to refuse all sexual relations for as long as they live. I would appear to be supporting the guilty party instead of defending the innocent, who may want to exercise his or her right.

I was under the impression people had the right to refuse sex, even when AIDS wasn't in the picture.
