Papal Raptures

Miss Kathleen Parker, columnist for The Washington Post, is in a state of rapture over the recent musings of the Holy Father, especially on those topics which she and the Post find so attractive.  "When the Pope talks, people listen," she tells us.  Yes, indeed they do.

But gush is in the wind (what a horrible thought) and writers like Parker are there to do the gushing. Her adulations appeared in a recent print edition.

"Even non-Catholics are keen to study his words, so surprised and delighted are they to hear a pope say things that suggest to them a more enlightened view of the world, even if those views are attitudinal rather than tangible."

"Once he has said something the light he sheds travels with the speed of a meme."

"Each time Francis speaks, his words are as shiny objects on a desert floor.  We scramble to examine them, turning them over, looking for hidden meanings, holding them up to the light in search of codes and encryptions."

I presume the picture is of the screaming girls who met the Beatles upon the arrival to the U.S.

I can't find the citation, but I've read that the girls were bussed there from an all girls school and were paid for this performance by the record company in a successful effort to increase interest and publicity in the band.

I wonder who is paying for the Media to play up Pope Francis? Typically, their M.O. is to degrade and insult the pope or the church.

The Media may be pushing Francis on the world, but they certainly are not pushing the Gospel.

Stay away from the Media, they will just play with you, no matter how important or trivial the subject.

The dissenter, heretic, adulterer, and "acclaimed Theologian, Karl Rahner, S.J., was played up by his fellow dissenters in a circle-jerk of adulation. Much like the Beatles' school-girls, it was to garner interest and publicity for the man. Having achieved fame, one can go on to influence many people.

Maybe that is why the "remnant" will always be so small, and why "there are few who find" the path to Heaven.

Luckily, the media doesn't have to insult or degrade either the Pope or the Church. We have the aged parent/Louie/philosopher/Br. andre/observer doing a fine job already!

After the media bosses are through with Frankie they will throw him under the bus.

How very true, 4:58.
The perfidious tribe that runs all media considers a person useful until they do not make money from you anymore. Then the knives come out. It will happen to this man as it has happened to all of the rest
Goyim are expendable.
