According to a new book-length interview, Light of the World: The Pope, the Church, and the Signs of the Times, Pope Benedict XVI says that he believes that the use of condoms can be justified - as long as you're a male prostitute and don't want to spread disease!
In the six-day interview with Peter Seewald, he said:
"There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility. It's a first step in a movement toward a different way, a more human way of living sexuality."
It may seem kind of silly, but it's definitely a step in the right direction for the Roman Catholic Church!
Let's hope that this kind of tolerance is only expanded upon further!
What do U think?? Is progress being made??
