Phil Lawler: The Pope's message turned upside-down

Phil Lawler at Catholic Culture writes:
Today, what the world thinks Pope Benedict said is almost exactly the opposite of what he clearly intended.

In Chapter 11 of his new book, Light of the World, Pope Benedict mounts a strong defense of his argument that condom use is not the appropriate means of fighting the AIDS epidemic.

This week, millions of people received the impression that the Pope made precisely the opposite argument-- that he recommended condoms as a defense against AIDS...
He goes on to argue that the public relations effort on the part of the Vatican has fallen short. What do you think?
