And could you tell us please how the inadvertence occurred?

The problem came about because America's editors only saw the ad in black and white before it was published, and the condom was not as evident, according to the magazine's associate editor, Rev. James Martin. ...

Another issue may be Catholic priests' unfamiliarity with what condoms look like. "We're Jesuits," Martin said. "I don't think you could have found anyone in the editors' room who has seen a condom."

Thank you. That explains it.
