New York City’s bishops issued a scathing denunciation of Freiden’s condom initiative when it was introduced in 2007.

“The decision of the city of New York to distribute [26] million free condoms to the public — and minors as well, according to news reports — is tragic and misguided,” Cardinal Edward Egan of New York and Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio said in a joint statement, Fox News reported. “Our political leaders fail to protect the moral tone of our community when they encourage inappropriate sexual activity by blanketing our neighborhoods with condoms.”
