“The Times said what?!”

So apparently The New York Times is so beside itself over Pope Francis’ epic interview yesterday, it can’t decide what it wants to say about it.

In fact, in less than 24 hours, it seems there’ve been at least three different headlines for the same story: an inflammatory headline, a more moderate one, and then a crazy, go-for-broke moonbat insane headline.

The original headline (still preserved in the article URL) was bad enough:

Pope Bluntly Faults Church’s Focus on Gays and Abortion

After that, for some reason, in an apparent fit of moderation, a more accurate headline was substituted:

Pope, Criticizing Narrow Focus, Calls for Church as ‘Home for All’

Well, of course that wouldn’t do. At this writing, the current headline—apparently the one that ran in the print edition—is more ludicrously over the top than the original:

Pope Says Church Is ‘Obsessed’ With Gays, Abortion and Birth Control

That’s not all. The lede has changed too.

In at least some previous version the story claimed that the pope said the Church has “grown ‘obsessed’ with a limited agenda and that it should seek a ‘new balance’ to make it more welcoming.”

Now, though, the lede is much more explicit about that “limited agenda”: The pope now says that the Church has “grown ‘obsessed’ with abortion, gay marriage and contraception, and that he had chosen not to talk about those issues despite recriminations from critics.”

Well. Clearly someone’s obsessed with abortion, gay marriage and contraception. But I don’t think it’s the Church.
