A New York Times piece admits that the documents it pointed to last week did not say what they originally claimed it did about the current pope. Just as Fr. Raymond de Souza pointed out over the weekend on NRO. And so now Laurie Goodstein has been to rewrite and back.
It’s hard to argue with the truth when you provide a link to it on your own site, as the Times did. Inconvenient truth.
What happened in Milwaukee was criminal. It was horrendous. It was painful. It was wrong. It should have been punished. But the pope was not the problem in the case of Fr. Lawrence Murphy. And even the New York Times, evidently, knows it.
