LifeSiteNews is not happy. First they attacked CRS and CCHD for their work among the poor. Now, they are going after Pope Francis. The myopia of this crowd is stunning. Haven't they ever heard of multi-tasking? The Church can defend the poor and the unborn. What the Church cannot do is be so concerned about worst case scenarios, that it cripples its efforts to help the poor because someone, somewhere, might be scandalized because that work leads to us encounter people who do not agree with us all the time and on every issue. The scandal is not the work of CCHD or CRS, still less the words of the pope. The scandal is LifeSiteNews and their fellow travelers.
