In the past few days, the Internet and much of the media has been focusing on the recent comments of Pope Benedict XVI, when he said that condom usage may be appropriate for male prostitutes (not female prostitutes) as a means to reduce the spread of H.I.V, the virus responsible for AIDS. His comments were not issued in support for contraception by females and was not intended under any circumstance to be used for the purpose of birth control.
