Hypocrisy? THIS is Hypocrisy!

Or maybe just cowardice coupled with an absurdly low level of self-awareness. Nope. It’s hypocrisy.

New York Times Runs ‘Condom Pope’ Image After Refusing to Publish Muhammed Cartoons

SooperMexican – If you look up”hypocrisy” in the dictionary, you might find this example of a ridiculous double standard by the New York Times. In January the venerable and crotchety old gray lady declined to publish the cartoons of Muhammed after the Charlie Hebdo massacre and cited their policy to not offend religious sensibilities:

“Under Times standards, we do not normally publish images or other material deliberately intended to offend religious sensibilities. After careful consideration, Times editors decided that describing the cartoons in question would give readers sufficient information to understand today’s story.”

Right. Sure. And yet just a few short months later, they’re publishing a picture that is offensive to Catholic sensibilities:

Here’s the pic (sorry for the offense, Catholics):

    I got this good reminder from Catholic Vote today:

    he widespread euphoric celebration of the Supreme Court’s lawless decision has likewise spawned predictable calls for new attacks on people of faith, religious institutions, and the family.

    So what now?

    I can’t predict the future. Right now we are strategizing with allies. We need to be smart and inventive. I will promise you this: we are not giving up. No way.

    But today I am reminded of the often-quoted words of Blessed Mother Teresa, who said: “God does not require that we be successful, only that we be faithful.”

    What does that mean?

    It means, in part, we should stop fretting about what we cannot control, and devote ourselves with renewed vigor to what we can. No Supreme Court decision can force you to deny your faith, to abandon your family, or to doubt the hope we have in Christ.
