And thus it begins.

Here comes the bandwagon

Yes yes I’m sure Peter Tatchell was right all along. I’m sure it was his pressure that effected this monumental change in Church teaching…

Maybe the papers should place the popes latest statement alongside his statement of march last year as context, the two comments are not mutually exclusive. The pope hasn’t changed his view at all because he is still saying that condoms aren’t the right solution to the AIDS crisis, but nobody is reading that part are they.

All they see is POPE U-TURN, CHURCH CHANGES TEACHING! in the headline.

What is worse is that this is going to be taken as carte blanche for Catholic charities to hand out condoms to everyone, not just prostitutes, a process that will almost certainly worsen the aids crisis.

For the first time I am wondering if the pope has made a mistake…
