Pope's advice on condoms welcome in HIV prevention, but may be overstated

Rachel Donadio has written some analysis in the New York Times questioning the recent news that Pope Benedict had written, in his book “Light of the World” and other places, statements that sometimes health concerns – prevention of HIV transmission and other STDs – may outweigh Vatican objections to contraception and homosexual behavior, and provide moral justification for condom use. The story is “Pope’s comments on condoms sow confusion”, (website url) here

The UN Aids Global Report (link ) praised the Pope’s words.

There is a correlated story on my GLBT blog today (Thanksgiving Day).
