Am I the only one seeing the irony here?
Hey Rratzinger, that’s a good one, reality is important, I couldn’t agree more. But you forget a few more “realities” that you should mention:
How about not lying about condoms and AIDS?
Better yet, what about NOT COVERING UP THE RAPING OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD?
Yes, your concern is totally commendable! Thank you.
New technologies confuse reality and fiction: Pope

Pope Benedict XVI said today that the media’s increasing reliance on images, fuelled by the endless development of new technologies, risked confusing real life with virtual reality.
“New technologies and the progress they bring can make it impossible to distinguish truth from illusion and can lead to confusion between reality and virtual reality,” the pope said.
