The pope and his condom allowance

Writes a professor of moral theology:
Shortly after the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI's book, "Light of the World," the media presented breaking news: "The pope allows the use of condoms." By now, Catholics and the public in general should know that this is not true.
Not true, okay. Then, almost immediately:
The pope focuses on the central issue: a need to properly fight the cheapening of sexuality. Pope Benedict refers to the ABC Theory (Abstinence-Be faithful-Condoms), "where the condom is understood only as a last resort, when the other two points fail to work."
And at such point, the pope allows the use of condoms. N'est-ce pas?
