Open any major newspaper or news reporting website this morning and you will see that Pope Francis said over the weekend that 2% of priests are pedophiles which makes 1 in 50 priests (8,000 world wide). At the same time the sole, original and source report (look for yourself here) in La Repubblica says the pope said “Il due per cento di pedofili sono sacerdoti” (two percent of pedophiles are priests). A minor, but significant logical difference that at this point it doesn’t matter to the NYT, LATimes Al Jazeera etc who are too lazy to look at the Italian.
Are they just unprofessional or happy to let the error spread like a wildfire? Classic Pope Francis moment.
Cheers to another 10 years of most priests being treated like child abusers!
Am I missing something?
