Did the Pope also run on a campaign about “change?” Oh how radical and progressive. In another two hundred years the Catholic church may even come around to condoning condoms for other reasons. Of course by that time, they will probably will not have been used for a hundred years either.
Pope Benedict XVI says in a new book that the use of condoms can be justified in some cases, such as for male prostitutes seeking to prevent the spread of HIV.
The pontiff made the comments in a book-length interview with a German journalist, Light of the World: The Pope, the Church and the Signs of the Times.
