“Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world” (1 Jn 4:4).
The interregnum is upon us and the hamsters that run the mainstream media’s spin machine are being force-fed Four Loco so they can produce new sound bites that will presumably rebrand the same, old, tired themes. No doubt you’ve heard the chattering classes going at it already.
“Isn’t it time to end celibacy?” (Sigh. How ’bout trying to understand the value of something before advocating its destruction?)
“Will the new Pope be more receptive to ordaining women?” (I dunno. What do you think the chances are of hell freezing over?)
“Don’t you think the Church’s continued fetish with birth control is undermining its moral authority?” (<spit take> Excuse me? Who, exactly, has the fetish here?)
“The Church’s membership is in a freefall. Don’t you think that’s sending message that the hierarchy needs to get with the times?” (Because…the bishops have to meet their quota?)
And so on, and so on.
