No Condoms At Tesco’s

No condoms are sold at the Tesco store in Ivanka pri Dunaji, near the Slovak capital Bratislava. And while most stores are open on Sundays, this one isn’t. A customer looking for condoms and not finding any was quite surprised to learn from the shop manager that there are no condoms on the shelves because the land under the building is owned by the catholic church. The official of the church, Tibor Hajdu confirmed that the contract forbids the shop to open on Sundays since the Ten Commandments prescribes this, but the ban on condoms is purely a gentleman’s agreement.
