I'm aware that there are differences between the catholic church and the protestant church.
as I said above, the catholic church can trace its roots right back to the big JC...
the protestant church can trace it's roots back to a split in the church caused by the leader of the church in England, (king Henry 8th), who formed the protestant church. and then through the catholic church back to the teachings of Jesus.
The catholic church is therefore supposedly based on the teachings of Jesus. (including all the godly miracles such as wine turning into the blood of Christ, and wafer turning into the bod of Christ during holy communion).
Whilst the Protestant church is much much younger. formed by a king angry that the catholic church wouldn't let him divorce...
i.e he took bits of the religion that he liked, and left bits he didn't and made up a whole bunch of other stuff...
Basically, historically, the teachings of the protestant church must therefore be less accurate than the teachings of the catholic church. they are made up one one and a half thousand years after the fact.
the point also surely still stands that there is the word of god, (the one true unwavering word of god). at least that's what religious leaders tell us...
yet the people of the same position are those same people who have been changing the one true unwavering word of God all the way through the history of the church.
if you're a protestant Christian, you can't distance yourself from the fact that the word of God has changed a lot over the years. yet we're still reading from the same text supposedly?

I think that we can also conclude that since contraception didn't exist in the year 33AD that Jesus most likely had no strong feelings on contraception either.
-despite the fact that contraception hadn't been invented, and thus teaching that contraception is wrong cannot possibly the word of God as handed down to the prophets at the time of the writing of the bible and other holy texts, it is now taught and taken as gospel that contraception is wrong within the Catholic church. - even to the extent that the pope publicly advises people in Africa not to use contraception, not even to help prevent the spread of AIDS,
