I think you need not worry. I strongly doubt you will hear the cry of "papiemus magnus!"* before something blows up anytime soon.

CC

* papiemus magnus is "the pope is great" in latin.

Very clever. There are people on here that seem to want to trash this new Pope saying that he's pro-homo, and from the vitriol they would have you believe that he's an abortionist or child rapist.

I am not Catholic... but I do think this Pope is a good man... a humble man.

Perfect demonstration of how knee-jerkers cause chaos.

Agreed. Besides the cartoon was not even being critical of the pope, but rather was pointing out the ridiculous distortion of his words by the media that has been going on since the new pope was selected.

See, the Pope should have got a small pie with anchovies for himself. No brainer, would have gone well with the beers.

In any case, what we are seeing is how a really old institution is attempting to deal with this twit-face-space 24 hour global news cycle thing and how it has conditioned many to observe and judge the world in a succession of highly slanted and subjective 10 second increments.

Yep, that is how it works.

Funny but very sad at the same time.

What was once considered back fence gossip is now the gold standard for journalism

That sounds like how “tradition” was changed throughout the years.

I didn’t take it as the media mixing his words....rather the members screwing it up. Which might be closer to the truth.

It's a good thing that the Pope in this cartoon did not call out to "Big Boy's" for a sandwich or something. Can you imagine what the last person (in the cartoon) would have been doing with that!    :-)

(This cartoon reminds me of the old "telephone" game, which some other countries call "Chinese whispers".)

It is plain, though, that when the U.S. mainstream media gets involved in the chain of information, the distortions are radical, deliberate, dishonest, and malicious towards the Catholic Church and her teachings. After some thought about it, it occurred to me that the U.S. mainstream media (New York Times, et al) were very happy to get the first Pope chosen in a while who doesn't speak English, because he cannot quickly or easily see how badly they clobber his own words, when they distort what he said in such brazenly inaccurate and deceitful English translations as those they've produced so far, which have been widely exposed in the past few days.

Personally, in the future, I plan to immediately disbelieve every single thing the U.S. main stream media says about any future Papal interviews, unless and until proven otherwise by more trustworthy translators (just like I already do for their endlessly prevaricating political pronouncements).

Precisely why Yeshua banned all oral tradition.

An excellent cartoon.

Precisely why Yeshua banned all oral tradition.

Jesus' criticism of the Scribes and Pharisees in Mark 7:13, "that you have invalidated the word of God by your tradition," is not a blanket condemnation of all tradition, but rather, a correction regarding a particular tradition of man (the Corban), a bad tradition that had circumvented a commandment in Scripture. According to this tradition, a son could declare that what he had intended to give his parents was considered "Corban" (ie. a gift devoted to God). Once a gift was considered "Corban" it could technically (though not actually) be no longer available for the care of his parents. Wouldn't you condemn a tradition like that?

From Adam and Eve to Moses (1400 BC), oral tradition was the only means of passing on the Word of God. And from Moses to the birth of the Catholic Church on the day of Pentecost, it was clearly understood by all in God's covenant family that the "Word of God" was made up of Tradition that was handed down both orally and in writing. St. Paul exhorted us to "stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours" (2 Thess. 2:15).

Rabbi Hayim Donin in his book entitled To Be A Jew explains that "we believe that God's will was also made manifest in the Oral Tradition or Oral Torah which also had its source at Sinai, revealed to Moses and then orally taught by him to the religious heads of Israel. The Written Torah itself alludes to such oral instructions. This Oral Torah which clarifies and provides the details for many of the commandments contained in the Written Torah was transmitted from generation to generation until finally recorded in the second century to become the cornerstone upon which the Talmud was built" (p.24-25).

All oral tradition is banned.

All takanot and ma’assim are departure from Torah, whether from a ‘Rabbi” or a ‘priest,’ or whatever.

Oral tradition is always contrary to Yehova’s word. Men always want to add in their own ideas, and subtract the commandments that they find difficult to follow.

“Christmas,” and Easter are perfect examples of this. The previous two popes have conceded that December 25 is not Yeshua’s birth date, and that the markings that the world has attached to it are pagan, yet it just doesn’t go away. Easter with its rabbits and dyed eggs, and sunrise gatherings, and eating of pork, is clearly the worship of Ishtar and Tammuz.

They are a stench in the nostrils of Yehova, and of his true sheep. Deuteronomy 4:2, and 12:32 are very much still in force. His commandments are not to be added to, nor subtracted from.
