Lidové Noviny's front-page carries a photo of the Pope wearing a condom on his head instead of a mitre. The Prague daily reports that this slightly unusual souvenir of Benedict XVI's 26-28 September visit to the Czech Republic has been devised by Condom Positive — an association that protests against the Catholic church's refusal to acknowledge the utility of condoms as an efficient means for preventing the spread of AIDS. The condoms emblazoned with the slogan "Papa (Pope) says No ! And you?" will be distributed during the 27 September papal mass in Brno, which is expected to attract 100,000 people — and Condom Positive activists are planning to follow the Holy Father throughout his tour of Europe's most atheistic country.In the columns of Lidové Noviny,the Condom Positive campaign organizer promises that there will be "enough for everyone."
