López wasn’t just charged with spreading lies about gay parents on behalf of the Vatican. He was also the Catholic Church’s point man on spreading lies about the effectiveness of condoms: In 2003 López claimed that HIV can pass right through latex and that condoms didn’t offer any protection against AIDS.
