 With Joe away, Abe tackles the Pope's reversal on condom use and the state of modern sexual politics

 In a stunning reversal of decades of dogma, Pope Benedict has declared that condoms can be used to control the transmission of HIV under certain circumstances. Specifically, if you're a male prostitute. Those Catholics who are neither male nor inclined to prostitution are still out of luck.

Still, it's good that the Pope finally admitted that condoms can be of use. The official condemnation of contraception by the Catholic Church (and its Protestant brethren) remains, however, one of the most socially irresponsible positions a major world organization could possibly take. And, also one of the most ignored positions.
