The Former Archbishop of Milan, Going Straight to...?

BBC: Cardinal backs limited condom use
One of the Roman Catholic Church's most distinguished cardinals has publicly backed the use of condoms among married couples to prevent AIDS transmission.

Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini said that in couples where one had HIV/AIDS, which could pass to the partner, the use of condoms was "a lesser evil".

The Vatican says condoms should never be used, even to stop AIDS spreading from one married partner to another.

The Church teaches that abstinence is the best way to tackle disease.
