Wonder how it sounds like in Italian...

Just the same but accompanied by a hand gesture.

First off Catholics follow every word His Holiness says as if it were from God Himself. As if he were the Vicar of Christ. As if some magic link that goes all the way back to Peter was in play (despite lack of scriptural or natural evidence their is a line of succession of some "magic" powers held in such office). But if he were to make some gaffe or verbal misstep THEN it's "He wasn't speaking ex-cathedra" time. They have a cover for everything. IF he were part of some succession of office he would be healing the sick and wandering the globe in poverty without Papal glory and accouterments.

Complete fabrication.

Isn’t his first language Spanish? So he mispronounces Italian from time to time. Cut him some slack.

And it wasn’t the “f bomb.”

And confession is not what you do after an “inadvertent” slip up.

I’m sure the left and other idiots will have fun with this.

His Holiness meant to use the Italian word for “example,” which is “caso.”
Instead, he used the word “cazzo,” which Italians use as a synonym for the four-letter obscenity.

He didn't curse, he had a true slip of the tongue. Like when some news reporter said "iniggural" instead of "inaugural" during the Clown's dog and pony show in January of 2013. That person didn't use the "N" word, they slipped in their pronunciation.

He wasn't speaking English. He was speaking Italian. He was trying to say, "in this case" (in questo caso), and he mispronounced caso (CAH-zo), instead saying cazzo (COTT-zo), which is a slang word for male genitalia (also used colloquially to mean someone's personal business).

My criticisms of Bergoglio (or Wojtyla and Ratzinger for that matter) are because he’s a false prophet, not because he’s human.

So all those years in the clergy at various levels Francis never picked up Italian well enough? Or did he just start learning after the conclave?

This is a non story. To take it out of the Religion Forum (it belonged in the Smokey Back Room) and put this kind of lying, spinning, BS journalism up on the Breaking News sidebar just proves the anti-Catholic bias of this forum.

Actually it is a real story. Made national headlines - so it is breaking news. As far as lying, the facts seems to support the Pope did in fact make a verbal error. So what part was the lie?

I responded to the person asking how it is pronounced in Italian, as no one had before. I also posted the associated shades of meaning.

“just proves the anti-Catholic bias of this forum”

That’s rich. There is more pro-Catholic, Catholic Caucus, and blind Catholic following on this forum than anywhere else I visit on the interwebs, to the point that complaints about the annoying over abundance of Catholic-specific threads gets ignored.

If you want pure Catholic worship, please visit a Catholic forum, not a Conservative forum where ideas, and their pros/cons are discussed freely and without reservation, within reason.

Did you actually read the article at the source? There is no lie, no spin, just the story. If a news article portrays anything Catholic in other than glowing terms, it is considered Catholic bashing by some. The man made a mistake, that’s all the article brought out.

From the article:
“..His Holiness meant to use the Italian word for “example,” which is “caso.” Instead, he used the word “cazzo,” which Italians use as a synonym for the four-letter obscenity....”

It would appear that he was speaking in Italian... and just sort of screwed up.

This just lends itself to SO many jokes though...
