This is not going to end well.

Not the editorial title you expect to see in a major American newspaper:

Condom Sense
Pope Benedict XVI is wrong.

I'm guessing no one at the WaPo wanted to deal with that whole "papal infallibility" issue. I mean, they apologized over Galileo, but I doubt they're going to do that over Durex.

And for no good reason whatsoever:

Yeah, I'm free associating again. Deal with it.

If I remember correctly, the Pope is only infallible in certain conditions. To quite wiki:

"Statements by a pope that exercise papal infallibility are referred to as solemn papal definitions or ex cathedra teachings. These should not be confused with teachings that are infallible because of a solemn definition by an ecumenical council, or with teachings that are infallible in virtue of being taught by the ordinary and universal magisterium."

This almost makes up for the whole George Will the climatologist fiasco
