The BBC says:

Pope Benedict XVI, who is making his first papal visit to Africa, has said that handing out condoms is not the answer in the fight against HIV/Aids.

The pontiff, who preaches marital fidelity and abstinence, said the practice only increased the problem.

The Pope shows once again why he should usually just be ignored. The way the current Catholic church is willing to apologise over their stupidity about Galileo will be the way the church in another four hundred years will presumably apologise over the stupidity of the current Pope.
