A number of antipope Catholics gleefully pointed out how few times Pope Francis mentioned “Jesus” in his speech to Congress. I don’t think such scrutiny would find any more of a happy home with the online Catholic Right. Certainly Pope Benedict XVI avoided the trap, right?
One prominent blog which boasts “nearly 1,000,000 page loads this month” has but one mention of the Name, and only for the ctrl-V addition of a prayer in the sidebar. I did my ctrl-F trick on a few other home pages: Catholic Answers: zero; Creative Minority Report: zilch; EWTN: zippo. NCReg logged two mentions: one as the title of a writer’s essay and the other to let readers know “jesus” comes in 21st in popularity on the topic list.
Jesus didn’t have much good to say about those who appeal, “Lord, Lord,” but perhaps those who pile on popes might want to consider a little consistency.
