I apologize for snapping at you. The question you ask now, that is a good one. I will try and keep it as short as I can, because it can get very diluted, IMO. I believe the Church doesn't so much need to modernize its core dogma as much as become more tolerant. The eras past, basically everything up until the 20th C, religious wars were okay, that was the mindset. Go of and jihad or Christianized someone. Not anymore. The issue with condoms is more of one with tolerance. And realism, so the Church also needs tobe realistic in its dogma. Don't necessarily change it, but just know when and where it is appropriate. People now don't want to be moralized to as much. They are less willing to just accept blind faith. Forcing religion on others will not work. With condoms in Africa they can keep an abstinence program by its teachings but also realize people are not perfect. Jesus gave us a model to try and achieve, a goal, but it is impossible to be truly Christ-like or a "true" Christian because the standard is set too high for a human to achieve. So the Church doesn't need to change its core dogma. Holy Trinity, Purgatory, Pope, etc. etc. It just needs to become more modernized in that it needs to communicate better, know when to hold back on the religious teachings, and just know when to be realistic. You can gain Catholic converts by supplying condoms but also teaching that one day one should not need a condom because one should work for a day when he or she can be spiritually pure and eventually become abstinent from impulse. I don't know if that answered your question or not.
