Attack of the metaphors!
It’s Story Time: Francis offers Ideology-Laden Poetry in Message for World Communications Day
It seems there isn’t a day in the year when the Argentinian actor Jorge Bergoglio — currently playing “Pope Francis” in what must be dubbed the never-ending story of The Two Antipopes — doesn’t have something to say.
Today was no exception. January 24 being so-called World Social Communications Day, Mr. Bergoglio felt compelled to release yet another one of his priceless messages to the world. Since Catholic theology isn’t his forte, he loaded it up once again with countless metaphors, quoting Sacred Scripture here and there to give it a Catholic spiritual veneer.
