Deflating the Condom 'Scoop'

The hype over the Pope's condom remarks are turning into one of the most blatant cases of media distortion on a Church-related story ever.

For the record, in the new book based on interviews with Pope Benedict XVI, the Holy Father has not changed the Church's teaching on condoms. He hasn't modified it or even slightly nuanced it. George Weigel, who wrote a forward for the new book, offers one of the best articles I've seen explaining the teaching and summing up the whole controversy. Janet Smith offers another.
