In another entry, I said that we would see an increase in attacks on the Holy Father, attempts to implicate him personally in the cover-up of sexual abuse of minors by priests when the Pope was still Archbishop of Munich.
Hell’s Bible launched an attack, written by committee.
The Times has now opened up its own bear-baiting pit.
The Times article is by Richard Owen. The headline is designed to make you think the Pope is guilty of something before you read the article.
Thus, the editors, for printing this headline, are scrubs. If Richard Owen wrote the headline, he is a scrub.
It will seen be impossible to track without Nexis-Lexis all the attack in the media, the unjust and unprofessional insinuations.
Also see Damian Thompson‘s piece.
Another fairly despicable story from AP, which was again written by committee but has the usually responsbile Nicole Williams name at the top.
