NYT: Pope Benedict Surprisingly Nice

The New York Times just can’t help but put its liberal bias on display. In describing Pope Benedict XVI during the early days of his term, the new pontiff is described as surprisingly “funny”, “self-deprecating”, and “open-minded”.

This is in contrast to his reputation as “narrow-minded”, “stern”, and “dour”, a conservative who “would return the Catholic Church to its theological roots, accepting a smaller church if it was more ideologically pure.”

Instead, delighted reporters have observed a man whose views are “broader and more outward-looking” than he had shown in the past.

Translation: Conservative bad, liberal good.

A Baptist preacher I know likes to say that the trouble with being open-minded is that it makes it easier for your brains to fall out.

  1. Or any old junk to fall in. I recall another old saying. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.
