Could someone help provide me with rock solid examples of how the press has distorted the current Pope’s words? I just got into a discussion with some very biased people… who no matter what examples from the Pope’s own speeches… continued to base their interpretations on what they had read in the BBC or New York Times. Since I agree with the Pope, I’ve been judged by these people in the same way.
I honestly can’t believe how some people are perfectly willing to listen to ABC News without question, but are totally close minded about Pope Benedict XVI (despite him being a major religious leader, a excellent scholar, an a major world leader)!
I know I’m probably not going to convince these people, but I’d still like excellent examples for future (and more charitable) discussions.
God bless Papa for taking the time to bring up the hard subjects, which many seem unwilling to discuss of address.
