35. Let's put it this way.
If the fundies know nothing about condoms, then when they break their stupid little vows, they get what's coming to them for being self-righteous hypocrites.

Well-informed fundies = fundies that survive and spawn more fundies. Because they NEVER get past their hypocrisy about sex, condoms or not.
