The Pope's attitude toward condoms

Really, this is beyond reprehensible:

One of the world's most prestigious medical journals, the Lancet, has accused Pope Benedict XVI of distorting science in his remarks on condom use.

It said the Pope's recent comments that condoms exacerbated the problem of HIV/Aids were wildly inaccurate and could have devastating consequences.
...
"When any influential person, be it a religious or political figure, makes a false scientific statement that could be devastating to the health of millions of people, they should retract or correct the public record," it said.

The above excerpt is from an article on the BBC website.

The Lancet and the BBC are not exactly slouches in the publishing world.
