Pope confesses to his greatest crime

It’s a tragedy that the Pope’s apparent crimes of organising the protection of paedophiles in at least four countries pale into insignificance against his past pronouncements on the subject of condoms. With 1.5 million Africans a year dying of AIDS-related illnesses, it’s hard to imagine how many of those deaths could be prevented if the Pope had the decency to venture out of the Dark Ages and admit he was wrong. And now he has! It’s a small step, to be sure, but it’s a step forward.
