Pope organises Vatican art summit - BBC gets it wrong

The BBC is reporting that the Vatican is bringing together a summit of 500 artists to discuss art. Of course, this could be a really good story, but the BBC has to falsify information to make it more appealing. I guess they want to attract more anti-Catholics to their website? Anyway, my main grievance is that they are claiming the Vatican is having this summit in order to "mend" relations with the modern art community. The BBC then goes on to make the absurd statement that relations were damaged when an artist designed a crucified frog. Of course, the focus goes on what the Vatican allegedly did wrong, not the artist. That's like saying the Jewish community is sponsoring an art summit, but it's probably because relations were strained when a swastika was spray-painted on the Western Wall, and this is the Jewish Community's way of saying sorry for getting upset. Give me a break.

  1. I assume you mean Atheist when you say Anti-Christian?

  2. I did not say Anti-Christian, I said anti-Catholic. Anti-Catholic means someone who is hostile toward the Catholic Church and her teachings, etc. So this person could be Muslim, Hindu, Southern Baptist, Atheist, Agnostic, or even a fallen-away Catholic. That's why I used that term instead of atheist. Thanks for asking though.
