Why Time Magazine Misses the Point
Benedict XVI’s Pontificate Is Marked by Reform and Renewal
By Gregory Erlandson

HUNGTINGTON, Indiana, JUNE 8, 2010 (Zenit.org).- It would probably be too much to ask that Time magazine run a cover story on the bold statements and concrete actions that Benedict XVI has taken to address the clergy sexual abuse crisis.

No self-respecting journalistic enterprise wants to be separated from the pack when it comes to covering a controversial news story, which means it must always follow the herd, even when the evidence points elsewhere.

But the Time magazine June 7 cover story is a particularly frustrating example of a media enterprise playing to prejudices with half-truths even to the point of severely misrepresenting the story.

From personal experience, it was a dream, almost to be thrown out and the doors shut. What is the meaning of this dream and the answer – it is Papa Benedict. Everyone must listen to him, what he teaches, be holy like him or be thrown out of the house of God. Its as simple as that – he holds the key because our Lord speaks authoritatively through him and him alone. ( post if you want, if not, so be it).
