Over at WDTPRS blog, Fr. John Zuhlsdorf weighs in as well.


The nearly ubiquitous John Allen, the solitary boast of the National Schismatic Reporter, has notes from a wide-ranging interview Pope Francis gave to reporters while on the airplane heading back to Rome.

I have been musing to myself for a while now about what is going on in Francis’ mind when he does something odd. Were I able to ask directly, I would show him how, say, The New York Times (aka Hell’s Bible) covers him, and ask “Holy Father, is this what you want?”

Come to think of it, I would also show him the NSR and ask the same question. NSR’s editors choose to highlight the Pope’s answer about homosexuals, as if that where the most important thing their constituency needed to know about. Note, for example, that they did not lead with Francis’ strong statement that the door is closed on the matter of ordination of women as priests. They did not lead with the issue of curial reform, which is far more important, and more interesting, than a pretty standard response about homosexuals.

Just watch. The MSM and homosexuals will now have a conga line because of what Francis said about one issue and the rest will get lost.

Yes and his making life very difficult for apologists on his side might cause him to reflect on this and cut it out, with all due respect.
