Since when? I don't recall this extreme, pervasive translation problem under Pope Benedict (and he's only been gone a year).
I think he was being facetious. You know, because so many Catholics will come in here and defend this crap.
I'm sure hiring must be motivated by compassion, since the translation skills are so weak.
[You do know I'm kidding about this? FRomans have been telling me that it was a translation issue or that the "mainstream media" hates the big guy ...]
