Leading Vatican exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth has come out with the startling revelation that the Devil is driving the news coverage on child abuse and specifically was the co-author of the recent articles implicating the Pope in the New York Times.
We previously followed Amorth’s disclosure that the Devil was within the church, here. Now it appears the Devil is directing events inside and outside the Church. That must be good for business when you are a devil hunter.
The Pope did appear for the washing of a layperson’s feet, an act to symbolize humility (here), while Vatican lawyers emphasized immunity, here.
Father Amorth specifically noted that the coverage by the New York Times was “prompted by the devil.” Yet, he was left off the by line. He was able to spot the Devil’s work when he read “the recent attacks on Pope Benedict XVI regarding some pedophilia cases.”
Now here is the analysis that goes into spotting the Devil in the media: “There is no doubt about it. Because he is a marvelous Pope and worthy successor to John Paul II, it is clear that the devil wants to ‘grab hold’ of him.” It is also clear by implication that the New York Times is the tool of the Devil. Since I write for USA Today, I must assume that the choice for devil-fearing people is obvious.
Now for the five top reasons the New York Times hires Satan as an undisclosed staff reporter:
1. No health benefits needed.
2. A real cut up at the Christmas party.
3. Has a really cool Blackberry filled with good stuff on millions of celebrities and politicians.
4. Has Sarah Palin’s private number.
5. Can get tickets to any Yankees game.
