Crap religious reporting. Crap. Crap!

You only need to read one newspaper report about something you happen to know a little bit about, to never trust a newspaper report again.

Did you know that the Pope revised one of the central rites of Holy Week this year? No, it wasn't the Easter vigil according to the 1962 missal. Wait for it.

The meditations for the Stations of the Cross weren't on the stations you usually see in churches etc.

Pass the smelling salts. Call the inquisition. Elect a True Pope.

The minute I saw that they weren't the usual stations I thought to myself "some asshole is going to write a moronic piece about this" Where are the words to describe the utter utter utter contemptibility of a fool who can't even be bothered to spend fifteen minutes googling in preparing an article he is PAID for? How difficult can it be for a Rome correspondent to have some bod to phone up for a quick check on a silly wee story like this? And if he can't get this right, then how the ***** does he think he can report anything like accurately on complicated political or economical stories?

Amy Wellborn and Fr Tim on the same story.
