The New York Times reported that Providence College cancelled the speaking engagement of a same-sex marriage advocate who calls himself “the gay moralist.” I wrote about it at The Cardinal Newman Society. Check it out.

But I wanted to bring attention to how the Times reports the news. The lede is pretty straightforward but then they added this nugget:

The cancellation was announced by the college’s provost on Saturday, one day after the Roman Catholic Church was rocked by the publication of a long interview in which Pope Francis called for the church to “find a new balance” by refraining from frequent condemnations of homosexuality, abortion and birth control, and emphasizing mercy and love.

Nice juxtaposition, huh? And this is a news story?

So now, according to The Times, Catholic colleges must invite pro-abortion and pro-same-sex marriage or else they’re going against the pope.
