Witches, Vatican, Wackos.
Domine, da mihi hanc aquam has a beautiful fisking of one of the many articles appeared in the secular/leftist/abortionist/pervert press about the Vatican rebuke of the LCWR.
Besides making interesting reading in itself, the blog post is interesting because it shows the extent of media manipulation in these matters, and the total absence of every journalistic ethics in reporting the facts. The “fisked” article seems, in fact, rather the work of an overexcited student than the product of what should be a professional journalist.
Apart from this, it must be noted how these “protests” reach, basically, no one apart from some nut cases, no doubt with some perverted priest among them. It is, in fact, funny to think if the Chicago Sun-Times came with two people (say: a journalist and a photographer), this was enough to inflate the total number of wackos who chose to sit on the (we are told) non air-conditioned church (what a sacrifice, uh? ) of more than 1%. This, in a huge diocese with more than 2 million Catholics.
If this is support, I’d prefer my causes not to be supported.
Enjoy the fisking…
