Of course this spin is just malicious propaganda, but it illustrates why a Pope must be very careful in both his official pronouncements as well as his off the cuff remarks and interviews.
Hmmm ... aeons ago, I was a teacher. One the first things I learned was that no matter how carefully I wrote or said something, no matter how much I tried to resolve possible ambiguities, some joker would find a way to misconstrue it.
As they split hairs and argue technicalities the faithful diminish in numbers and the power of the church to overcome evil loses its voice. Slowly I turn away from them and ignore their words.
I hope there is a clarification forthcoming from the Vatican. Francis I's choice of words has serious implications when read out of context, which is, of course, how virtually everyone will read them. They will cause much mischief if not quickly qualified.
