I was working on a longish post about yesterday's blaring headlines:
CHURCH RECONSIDERS PRIESTLY CELIBACY!
POPE SAYS BELIEF IN GOD NOT NECESSARY FOR SALVATION!
Both of these headlines and their accompanying articles are gross misreadings. In fact, if you wanted to study how the anti-Catholic bigots of the MSM choose to misrepresent the Church's teachings, you couldn't find better examples.
Fortunately, Fr. Z. saved me the work of parsing these ridiculous excuses for journalism.
The Vatican's new Secretary of State said nothing new about the discipline of clerical celibacy.
The Holy Father did not say that belief in God was irrelevant to one's salvation.
The inability/unwillingness of the MSM to get Church-stuff right is simply astonishing.
