Hi, how's it going? Doing well in So Cal., finally getting some fall weather. Take care. <><"Because the Churchs teachings are clear, Francis will spend his precious time and energy showing a side of the Church that people, especially the MSM, hasnt paid attention to: that the Church is not a museum of the perfect, it is a field hospital for sinners." -- Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
Hmmm, interesting that Fr. Zuhlsdorf should call the Church "a hospital for sinners". I agree and always have.
Have you read this?
Secular media always trying to make something out of nothing.
"Go Home New York Times, Youre Drunk
by Steven D. Greydanus Friday, September 20, 2013
So apparently The New York Times is so beside itself over Pope Francis' epic interview yesterday, it can't decide what it wants to say about it.
In fact, in less than 24 hours, it seems there've been at least three different headlines for the same story: an inflammatory headline, a more moderate one, and then a crazy, go-for-broke moonbat insane headline.
The original headline (still preserved in the article URL) was bad enough:
Well. Clearly someones obsessed with abortion, gay marriage and contraception. But I dont think its the Church.
For the record, here is what Pope Francis actually had to say about obsession in his interview:
The churchs pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently.
Thats it. Thats the only time the word obsessed or any cognate appeared in the entire interview. Read the whole thing for context.
Oh, by the way, did you hear about the pope obsessing about abortion earlier today? Not from the New York Times, you didnt."

Wow! Did the Pope really characterize the Churchs teachings on abortion, homosexuality and contraception as small-minded rules that the Church should get beyond?
Thats what youd think by scanning the headlines, but the short answer is that the Pope said no such thing. Once again, this was a case of the secular press hyperventilating and taking the Popes remarks out of context.
