Ah, that's more like him!

CNN Exclusive: Pope held private meeting with same-sex couple in U.S.

The Vatican's statement throwing Kim Davis under the bus earlier today also said that "the only real audience granted by the Pope at the Nunciature was with one of his former students and his family." Now we know that this "family" was... precisely this "same sex couple" and some of their relatives (apparently - the lady portrayed by the media as the mother is just a friend...). Intentionally or unintentionally, this is the first time that an official Vatican mouthpiece has called a "gay couple" as a family -- or at least as part of the same family. Let that sink in...

Henceforth any Catholic who does not wish to give or abet scandal by warmly welcoming a "married" homosexual "couple" to their home or to a gathering can be easily attacked for being "more Catholic than the Pope".

We must admit we were too hasty: it was not the Marxist crucifix, but this, with the beaming Pope, the literal barrenness of it all, and the nuclear division it announces for the Church in the decades ahead, this is what is the defining image of this Pontificate.
