The AP is all breathless about the Holy Father's statement that it might be justifiable for male protitutes to use condoms.
No real story. What the Church has always opposed and still opposes is contraception. Since there is no conception to to be "contra'd" when two men commit sodomy, there is no question of contraception involved.
UPDATE 11/26: Mea Culpa! My first sentence is wrong. My description of the Holy Father's statement as "that it might be justifiable for male protitutes to use condoms" is incorrect. For a much better analysis of what the Pope was saying, see what Fr. Fessio says here.
