"Truth in labelling" appears to suffer a shameful death when it comes to stories about dissenters active in the Catholic Church. The News recently gave front-page prominence to this fatality.
It carried the Reuters column on the Vatican's opposition to the anti-family culture of death being promoted by radical groups at the U.N.'s Conference on Women at Beijing.
Frances Kissling, president of Catholics for a Free Choice (CFFC), blasted the Vatican intervention. Quoting the CFFC as a reputable and authoritative source of Catholic teaching is like quoting a hypothetical "Communists for Free Choice" (CFFC) a stupid contradiction in terms.
Kisslings's CFFC is no more Catholic than the Man in the Moon (MIM). Here are the facts:
It is astonishing that some Media should continue to quote CFFC as a reliable source for anything Catholic.
