the news they decide you must hear

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 19, 2005

Liked this glance at the data taken by Papabile:

To amuse myself, I went to Google News....

Searches resulted in:

*"world youth day" + gay -- 180 stories
*"world youth day" + abortion --176 stories
*"world youth day" + condoms -- 139 stories

*"world youth day" + eucharist -- 42 stories

*"world youth day" + beer -- 5 stories
*"world youth day" + ferret -- 1 story

Ok.... Ok.... I guess the reporting is balanced. At least the Eucharist did better than beer and ferrets.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
