The media and the Catholic Church have an interesting relationship, to say the very least.
I didn’t realise quite how complicated it is though, or just how much vitriol there is out there against the papacy and all things Catholic.
Ah well, plenty of time in the next few weeks and months for every newspaper in the world to tell us exactly why we suck so much – and for we Catholics to return the favour by crying that we are oh so misunderstood.
In the meantime, I made a collage of headlines from Tuesday the twelfth s a.k.a The Inauguration Of The Catholic Media Frenzy.
There are some pretty eye-catching pics, aren’t there!
My favourite headlines are VATICAN DRAMA from the Boston Herald and Keine Kraft mehr! from the German newspaper Bild. They’re so damn sinister! You can almost hear the “Law and Order”-like clunk…
Like the pope was over-thrown or resigning in disgrace, rather than freely and humbly laying down his Petrine ministry because, I dunno, he’s 85 years old?
You can see more (less interesting but probably more respectable ones) here.
