Condom clarification...one more time

For journalists and observers who missed it the first time, and the second, the Vatican is trying once again to make it clearer than clear that there has been no -- read our lips -- no change in teaching on condoms.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued a note today saying Pope Benedict XVI's remarks on condoms use and AIDS do not signify a change in either the Church's moral teaching or its pastoral practice.

So what's the first headline I see on the clarification? "Vatican: condoms OK, but not as contraceptive."
