Get used to more of this...

Supporting my thesis from a couple of days ago on the media narrative and Pope Francis, as if on cue, from the Associated Press:
Jesuit pope offers hope to some targeted nuns 
VATICAN CITY (AP) — The election of a Jesuit pope devoted to the poor and stressing a message of mercy rather than condemnation has brought a glimmer of hope to American nuns who have been the subject of a Vatican crackdown, according to interviews with several groups. The nuns were accused of having focused too much on social justice at the expense of other church issues such as abortion.
'Stressing a message of mercy rather than condemnation...' no doubt an attack on Benedict's papacy. I am beginning to think that the Vatican should refute these Francis vs. Benedict hit pieces streaming out of the AP. These nuns have ditched more than their habits.
