Shock! Horror! The Pope Is, Like Catholic, or Something, Y’know!

Over at the Orthosphere, Svein Sellanra delivers a ‘belated memo to journalists‘. He concludes with this gem:

By putting the new Pope’s orthodoxy out there as if it were news, you imply that these are “live issues” about which Catholics might legitimately disagree, that the Catholic Church would still be the Catholic Church if Nancy Pelosi were elected Pope at the next conclave. That’s another annoying habit you have, by the way: Denounce the Church if you must, but don’t denounce the Church and then try to micromanage its internal affairs.

I strongly encourage reading the whole thing.
