God Shuffled His Feet

One morning god woke up and decided to have a change of heart. Yes, god the perfect woke up this morning through his earthly incarnation, Mr Pope, and decided that under certain circumstances condoms are alright (here).
Don't get me wrong, it's about time the Vatican joined the rest of humanity and realized condoms are a lifesaver. Yet what does it say about our belief in an omnipotent god if that god can suddenly change his mind? Why didn't he do it earlier, being that he's perfect and all? And what's next - will we be told tomorrow that the earth might not be as flat as we know it is, or that - god forbid - we are not at the center of the universe?
