German journal proclaims pontificate of Benedict XVI 'failed'
Catholic World News - April 06, 2010
In a spectacular display of slanted journalism, Der Spiegel announces that Pope Benedict XVI has failed as Pontiff. One cause of this alleged failure, the article says, is the Pontiff's "reluctance to take a firm stance on sexual abuse." The article provides no evidence at all to support that charge. Later, in a more honest passage, Spiegel complains that the Pope "was not interested in the opening up of the Church to the modern world." The real complaint, naturally, is that Pope Benedict has not taken his policy guidance from Spiegel editors.
