Media Coverage of The Pope Francis Little Book of Insults

Thanks to a reader for alerting me to the news that The Week, a British weekly news magazine, has run a piece on the differences in the media's portrayal of Francis and Benedict and the insults issuing from the mouth of our Holy Father, Pope Francis.

In particular, The Week links to my satirical piece joking that I had been commissioned by the Catholic Truth Society to compile 'The Pope Francis Little Book of Insults'. Unfortunately, the article makes no mention of the fact that this was a joke piece, even if the insults so far compiled are real.

The religion editor of a US media company has also contacted me asking me to write a piece for their belief blog on the Pope Francis Insults Book idea, which I will keep respectful in tone, of the Successor of St Peter.

I have amended the satirical post to ensure that there are no further misunderstandings over the nature of the 'book'.

Disgraceful that Radio Maria has sacked yet another truth-speaker and defender of the Deposit of the Faith, Dr Robert de Mattei. Don't be intimidated into stopping to speak the truth and maintaining allegiance to the unchanging Faith and moral truth.

I think after Friday's advice to the Czech bishops, you might need to issue a new edition!! Maybe issue the book in ringbinder style for easy insertion of updates?

I would 'chip in' seriously. Perhaps the profits could go to the Latin Mass Society or to the poor of Brighton.
