Pope Francis Allows A Flock Of Children To Dance Around Him
published 10 October 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

Is it appropriate for Christ’s Vicar to let kids dance around him in such a crazy fashion?


Oh, wait… I goofed. That’s not Pope Francis, it’s Pope Pius XII. (Full video is here.)

I apologize for my mistake, but you really can’t blame me. After all, the media has relentlessly pretended that Pope Francis is the “very first pope” to ever care about average Catholics; the “very first pope” to ever mingle with the sheep; and so forth. You’ve encountered this kind of silly nonsense, just as I have.

Sloppy, reprehensible, and sensationalistic journalism was happening a year ago, and we recently mentioned more examples.
