What The Pope REALLY Said

I have been following the "controversy" about Pope Benedict XVI's recent comment in an interview about condoms.  It's awe-inspiring to see just how much the relatively secular press can twist a plain statement into something that "proves" their strongest biases.

What the pope 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 the first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility, on the way toward recovering an awareness that not everything is allowed and that one cannot do whatever one wants.
What the media heard:
Condoms are GREAT!  EVERYONE should use them, and have as much random sex as possible!
Amazing the difference between those two.
