I am not sure I fully understand what is going on here, and like some have noted, I am waiting for the "clarification". Nevertheless, Blogger Elizabeth Scalia, over at her place on the First Things Blog, talks to a new book on Pope Benedict XVI, in which he talks about the use of condoms. The Holy Father has some nuanced comments on the use of condoms. But, in the end, he seems to be against sex for the sake of sex—sex as a drug.
Here are Ms Scalia's comments.
Here is a link to the source of the current brouhaha.
The book is Light of the World and it is due to be released on 24 November. (For those of you in the know, and you know who you are, this is more likely to be released than that other thing on that date.)
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
