If some stranger came to me and said, “I thought I overheard your wife say that she is a Zoroastrian who spits on Jesus Christ” my first thought would not be, “Could this possibly be true? Is everything I know of her a lie? What do I do? O what do I do!!!!!”
It would be “Who is this guy? Why would he think my wife would do something so ridiculously out of character? Is it a case of mistaken identity? Him Not knowing English? Ignorance? Bad hearing? Stupidity? Malice?” The absolute last thing I would ever consider is “My wife is secretly a Zoroastrian who spits on Jesus.” Not happening. Not in this universe.
As near as I can tell, the basic rule of thumb in play here is this:
- When the pope says stuff conservatives like and the MSM twists it conservatives blame the MSM.
- When the pope says stuff conservatives don’t like and the MSM twists it, conservatives call it a “media debacle” and they blame the Pope.
It’s moments like this I miss the WiFi outage.
