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.
