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.

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.

“I always knew God would rescue us” Chilean miners rescued.

This is priceless. Chilean Miner completely disregards the months of straining, relentless efforts by the real heroes – the rescue staff – after finally getting freed; God rescued him, thank God! Right.

Of course, he never asked why God let him get trapped in the first place. Wonderful!

The 15th man trapped for more than two months in a Chilean mine was pulled to safety Wednesday as the sounds of rejoicing filled the camp in the Chilean desert where hundreds of international media were holding vigil along with family members of 33 gold and copper miners entombed half a mile below ground.

“I never doubted. I always knew God would rescue us,” Mario Sepulveda, the second miner to be rescued, said in a television interview.
