Spanish bishop: Pope never recommended condom use
November 29, 2010
The secretary-general of the Spanish bishops’ conference has confirmed that Pope Benedict XVI never suggested that condom use is acceptable.
As the Spanish bishops concluded their plenary meeting in Madrid, Bishop Juan Antonio Martinez Camino said that the Pope’s much-discussed reference to condoms, in the new book Light of the World, referred to a situation “within a context of immorality.” The use of condoms, he said, “can never be recommended.”
