[UPDATE: Here's an interesting analysis of the media's treatment of Pope Francis' remark regarding persons with same-sex attraction: "Who am I to judge?"
The mainstream media has devoted much time to advancing a specific narrative of Pope Francis. He thinks Catholic leaders are "obsessed" with hot button issues like abortion and same-sex marriage. He believes that capitalism has failed to help the poor. The pope did indeed say such things, but he is not the only pope to do so, and he has said much more besides, which allows us to place his remarks in context.
Nevertheless, the media drumbeat continues.
