My morning sneeze comes from Roger Ebert’s tweet. He tweets often, on many subjects, relevant and funny.
On this one I am afraid he put the emphasis on the wrong thing though
He should have said : “He said “women”
The article at the link sets it straight from the headline
This is a clarification of prior “game changing” statements
Pope Benedict XVI was quoted at the weekend saying condom use by male prostitutes could be a good thing, indicating the user’s intention to protect others from a deadly infection, apparently condoning the use of contraceptives for the first time. The Vatican yesterday confirmed that the same message applied to women sex workers.
In other words, when sticking his nose in other people’s bedrooms (or cars, or dark street corners), the Pope decided preventing disease is an acceptable reason for condom use.
But only if sex is traded for money, mind you.
I think some of his advisers since the original statement informed him shockingly, not only some priests go for adult males, but for some, women are of interest as well.
And, voila! Women are allowed to not get sick too!
Another giant step for women! (provided they sell it, mind you). They can now sell sex just like the guys!
