Pope Francis

Why is the pope in a wheelchair?

Pope Francis is struggling to cope with strained ligaments in his right knee that have greatly limited his mobility. Last week, he was seen in public for the first time using a wheelchair. He recently said he can no longer walk and must rest his knee on doctors’ orders.

Why is the Pope Francis  against condoms?

On a visit to Cameroon last year, the Pope Francis said the use of condoms could endanger public health and increase the problem of HIV/Aids, rather than help to contain the virus. This drew criticism from several EU states. Campaigners say condoms are one of the few methods proven to stop the spread of HIV.
