The Times regrets the error

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 11, 2005

Steady Hand Valued in Pope

Cape Catholics want new pontiff to be like the last one:
consistent and conservative
.

Something has gone seriously awry at the Cape Cod Times. Above are the headline and slug-head of a story on contemporary Catholics -- in Massachusetts, no less -- that does NOT portray them as looking for a caring, listening pontiff who will give them the green light on contraception, abortion, onanism, creative gerbil use, or greater sensitivity to gender-inclusive language in writs of divorce. Clearly someone has failed to learn his catechism, and we can expect both the journalist and his editor to be looking for new work shortly.

    It is good to see that the Truth of Catholicism does get printed once in a while, even in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, amidst the beating of the dissenting drums of traitors....

    Perhaps Phil Lawler can hire the reporter when he finds himself looking for a new job.
