3. The Der Spiegel cover is really surprising
That's the equivalent of Time magazine.
The other two are from the same satirical magazine and not so surprising.

I wish our media were as brave in taking on these hypocrites.

if any publication in the US had those pictures buried somewhere in the middle, let alone on the cover!

Our press is not free. We need to stop pretending it is.

7. I think modern day liberal Catholics need to take a lesson from Luther
(not the Jew-hating lessons, of course). And that is that you aren't going to change the church from within. You have to get out and find something that works for you.
