I am getting Papal fatigue. The Fog of Words has taken over. I am drifting.

Pope Francis needs to have his own secretary present with a tape recorder, for his own defence later, from scandalous falsehoods that are being created by those opposed to him specifically and Christianity in general.

I think Simcha is missing the point. What kind of knucklehead pope lets himself get used this way? Why does he so desperately need to go it alone that he disdains resources at his disposal whose express purpose is to prevent screwups like this?

For a second there I though that was YOUR rant - no linkage.

I for one am going to pretty much ignore anything coming out of Rome for the foreseeable future.

No responsible person sits down for an “interview” with a “journalist” where there is no tape recorder or even a note pad.

Same with the Francis haters. Absolutely anything you say about the man — and about the demonstrable, incontrovertable good effects of his papacy — it’s all just more evidence of bad news. They don’t like what he says, and then they hear that he didn’t actually say it, and the response is, “I’m tired of the excuses!” Okay. So you’re tired of the truth? Yeah, I thought so.

Even things that have nothing to do with him are magically attributed to his malign influence. And when we hear about — oh, people becoming interested in the Church again . . . people asking their Catholic friends questions, because they’ve heard there’s something interesting going on in Rome . . . people considering joining RCIA, or getting their marriages regularized, or going to confession in droves . . . well, there you have it. Proof that Francisogenic Papal Change is ruining the Church. Because they are not the right kind of people, you see. Their hearts aren’t having the right kind of conversion. Their experience of the love and mercy of Christ isn’t authentic enough. How can you be so blind? THIS IS A CRISIS, PEOPLE.

This is a malign attack on those with very legitimate and serious concerns with the papacy of Francis.

Why are we surprised? Our lamestream media makes stuff up all the time, “fake but accurate” and all that.
