from Brietbart

"On March 5, Pope Francis gave an interview to the Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera in which he was asked a question concerning civil unions as a legal alternative to marriage.

"It's worth reading the entire thing ... but as usual, when the hot topic of marriage comes up, the press leaps into action.

"Breathless headlines ensued: 'Pope Francis: Church could support civil unions' (CNN); 'Pope Francis Suggests Gay Civil Unions May Be Tolerable' (Huffington Post); 'Pope Francis, Newfound Friend of the Gays, Is Thinking About OKing Civil Unions' (Esquire, illustrated with a photo of the pope hugging a young man whose sexual inclinations do not appear to be a matter of public record; one of many young people, including prisoners and recovering drug addicts, whom the pope embraced warmly during World Youth Day in Brazil last summer).

"Here's exactly what was asked and answered ..."

This wouldn't be the first time a deliberately misleading headline, or story lead from a liberal source claimed Pope Francis said things he didn't say.

So here we all are criticising the Pope for his 'apparent' embracing of gay marriage and it was all a propaganda twist.

It will remind me in future to listen to the horse's mouth whenever I hear second-hand misquotes from other sources.
