All in all, as I witness this media debacle, what I hate more than even the MSM's selecting, cropping and framing of papal images and sound-bites, is their cheap, shallow, cynical political language.
"In a sop to doctrinal reactionaries in Jerusalem, Jesus of Nazareth today voiced support for the so-called 'Ten' 'Commandments'. This is widely interpreted by faith experts as a compromise designed to quiet critics who say he has slid too far in his rhetoric about mercy and grace."I'm rolling my eyes so far I can see the front of my brain.
It seems pretty clear that he wants the church to shy away from condemning sinful behavior. Unless the media is giving him the lost in translation treatment.
