SHOCK!!! DEAD TREE MEDIA CASTIGATION!!! BISHOP FINN LASHES OUT AT NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER!!!
On Sunday, Kansas City Area Bishop Finn made a bold move by taking on Catholic newsies.
Kansas City bishop says NCR undermines the faith
Bishop Finn assails NCR
Money Line From Bishop Finn:
"In light of the number of recent expressions of concern, I have a responsibility as the local bishop to instruct the Faithful about the problematic nature of this media source, which bears the name “Catholic.” While I remain open to substantive and respectful discussion with the legitimate representatives of NCR, I find that my ability to influence the National Catholic Reporter toward fidelity to the Church seems limited to the supernatural level. For this we pray: St. Francis DeSales, intercede for us."
Like it or not, this straight up approach appeals to the Catholic faithful and the overwhelming majority of people who only see the inside of a Church on Easter and X-mas. Throwing lightning bolts at newsies from on high is a solid rhetorical strategy if only for this reason: For as much as people hate those who have been cited for looking the other way while child sex abuse went down . . . People dislike "journalists" even more . . .
