I don't know who runs the Twitter account, @Pope_news, but clearly the account holder was a little upset that the Catholic Herald ran a story on the book, The Dictator Pope. @Pope_news, a character just as anonymous as the author of the stunning new release, claimed that the revelations within the book and news of the books arrival itself have caused no stir in Rome at all and included within the tweet the image above of the adorable Pope cuddling a young couple in an adorable manner in what can only be described as a frantic attempt to portray the 'dear leader' as both invincible and inviolate. 'How could any of these accounts of the Franciscan pontificate be true!? Look! He's so cuddly and fluffy!'
What is more distressing and destructive? A Pope who runs the Vatican like a mafia boss or a Vatican inner court that has no interest in allegations of corruption and manipulation and that continues saying that everything in the garden is rosy when it knows that everything in the garden has been ravaged by beasts?
The above picture shows that the communication organs of the Vatican are now behaving like Soviet propaganda arms and little more, but then we have been used to this for five years. The only thing that matters is the image of the Pope - nothing else!
Truth, lies, heresy, corruption, fabrication, brutality, isolation and discrediting of 'enemies', manipulation, deceit on a hitherto unprecedented scale? None of that matters! Folks, all that matters is that the leader is wonderful and to prove it, 'Look, here he being wonderful! How could anyone think otherwise!'
However, it looks rather like The Dictator Pope is causing enough of a stir to prompt such preposterous defensive tactics by @Pope_news. A clear sign that he who must be pleased is more than a little displeased!
