I Have A Theory

about why almost all Catholics mentioned by the MSM are "devout". At some level, the reporters and their bosses know that only really crazy people are Catholic. Worshipping wafers of unleavened bread and turning a blind eye to large-scale pedophelia, these people are remarkable, in an incomprehensible way. Thus, rational people leave the Church and denounce it robustly. Those who remain in it are, uh, "devout".

Vatican Cracks Down on Devout Catholic Bus Plunges: "

Everybody loves a riddle.  See if you can guess what ties these people together based on the MSM coverage:

  • ‘Brought up a devout Catholic, [he] aspired to become a priest….’

  • Although a devout Catholic, [she] is happy to face evil in her latest film, she tells Gill Pringle:

..’At home I expose my children to all faiths. I put a different book on the stairs leading up to our bedrooms — books on Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and so on. I want them to get a taste of different religions and see how different people approach things and what their motivation is. But, for me, The Omen is not about religion. It’s just another role and it’s been a lot of fun. Besides, my mother never told me not to do roles that involved evil or Satan,’ [she] says, laughing.

  • Devout Catholic answers a call to challenge church…

  • A devout Catholic, he attended Mass every week…

  • Devout Catholic author rigorous in examining gospels…

  • ‘…events in the first week of January will try to plant [her] version of her life story in the national consciousness, showing her as an Italian American and devout Catholic from Baltimore’

  • [He] calls himself a devout Catholic and says his latest comedy… is ‘pro-faith, pro-Catholic, spiritually uplifting.’

  • In an exclusive interview, the 33-year-old devout Catholic (and author of How to Make Love Like a Porn Star) tells Us Weekly that she’s made peace with her heartbreak.

I’ll wait a few minutes while puzzle out the subtle thread connecting all these quotes.  When you figure it out, t’will be a consummation devoutly to be wished.
