Looks like Catholics are finally getting into the 21st century. Well not quite. the Pope continues with the church's position on no-condom use for married couples (condoms are a form of contraception and thus banned).
However, the Pope has included the use of condoms as perhaps acceptable to combat the rampant spread of AIDS.
Can't see this as a bad thing overall in terms weighing the benefits (good) of the action. Now, whether behaviour will change is another story.
