Any time I come into even tangential contact with MSNBC I feel the need for a shower.
This, however, shows just how blinkered those blighters are. From Examiner.com:
MSNBC host shocked to learn Pope Francis opposes abortion
For liberals, abortion is the closest thing to a religious sacrament. [I would say that abortion is a liberal 'sacrament'. It is certainly the feminist liberal 'sacrament'.] But the fact that Pope Francis — a man Breitbart.com said has received a “strange new respect” from liberals over income inequality — opposes abortion seemed to come as a shock to one MSNBC host, Newsbusters reported Wednesday.
On Wednesday, thousands turned out to participate in an annual event known as the “March for Life,” despite snow and frigid temperatures. Pope Francis sent a message of solidarity to the marchers, telling them he was there in spirit if not in person.
“I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers, may God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable,” he said in a tweet.
But that didn’t sit too well with Chris Jansing, host of MSNBC’s “Jansing &Co.,” who “sniffed” at the thought Pope Francis supports the Catholic Church’s long-held belief that abortion is immoral and wrong, and said his views are “reflective of ways in which the church certainly has not changed.”
“Earth to Chris Jansing: The Catholic Church is and always will be pro-life. No amount of pushing from the liberals at MSNBC will change that,” Newsbusters’ Jeffrey Meyer wrote.
Just how thick are these people?
