I agree that one can’t take a news source at face value.
On the other hand, one might also say that all the sins you mention are manifestations of “insensitivity and hardness of heart.”
“Insensitivity” has become a “cringe word,” I have to admit (and goodness what the Pope really said, in whatever language he used :-). However, “hardness of heart” is a central Gospel theme, and also found in the Old Testament, as a source and result of sin.
I see what you’re saying, but I wouldn’t say that insensitivity and hardness of heart alone would induce a person to commit those sins. I think a hefty shot of evil would also be necessary.
