What is going on in the world ? What is behind the current media obsession with paedophilia in the Church, and the attempts to link the Holy Father to it ? Is it really just coincidence, or is there some sinister campaign at work ?
Well, Pravda - hardly the friendliest newspaper in the world towards the Church and the Holy Father - printed an interesting article on Tuesday, entitled (in their English translation) 'To confuse the wood with the trees . . .'
Although one would hardly agree with all of it, there is one particularly interesting observation :
'Another detail that suggests that a campaign of demoralization of the Catholic Church is in motion . . .'
My feeling is that if even Pravda think that, then there may be something in it. Read the article, and see what you think.
A visitor has posted an informative Comment which is well worth reading. Amongst other things, it points out that this isn't the old Communist Pravda, but a 'successor' which is perhaps rather less reliable . . . Nevertheless, I think the story remains interesting.
