What I personally find so amazing is that, in general, FReepers, who are the most cynical group in the country regarding the media, become totally credulous when the story topic has something to do with the Church. I have never in my life comprehended that concept.
What is yet more amazing is that this credulity includes some FReepers who identify themselves as Catholic.
It seems like an intense focus on politics ... this is a site mainly about politics, after all ... puts some people into a, “We have no King but Caesar!” mindset, so that they have trouble seeing past politics to Christ and the individuals who make up His body on Earth.
That’s the sense I get from the many posts on the order of, “He should have said (yadda government this, politics that) instead of ‘Jesus offers love and healing to drug addicts, and so does the Church’.”
