In fact I’d been wondering whether I should add a note to this post, since the one place where I got up on my hind feet and took a swipe at Pope Francis was in fact a paraphrase/distortion. I decided not to, but PEG made me rethink that, in part because I know I included the bit about what I didn’t understand or approve in the Pope’s interview so that I could attempt to gain audience trust by distinguishing myself from the Pope. Like, she’s not just some Vatican lackey, she thinks her own thoughts! (…Good for me?) Worth flagging so I don’t do it again.
