"It of course does not see it as a real and moral solution. In certain cases, where the intention is to reduce the risk of infection, it can nevertheless be a first step on the way to another, more humane sexuality."While this hardly represents an endorsement of condoms (and other forms of contraception), it still represents a major shift the Pope's message on this issue. What do you make of it? Is it a sign that the Vatican is open to change, however slow that change may be? Or is it a minor concession that pales in significance when placed alongside the Church's overall policy on condoms?
