Propaganda: Does anyone Think even Netflix's Imagined "Nazi" Benedict could Slap a Woman like Netflix's Francis the "Meek and Humble" did?

Lawyer Chris Ferrara and Catholic News Service explain why the Netflix's "Two Popes" is pure propaganda:

- "In 'The Two Popes' (Netflix), their glossy but highly speculative account of supposedly real events, screenwriter Anthony McCarten and director Fernando Meirelles ill-advisedly try to extol Pope Francis (Jonathan Pryce) by trashing retired Pope Benedict XVI (Anthony Hopkins)."

"They even go so far as to give brief screen time to two people who label the pontiff emeritus a Nazi."[https://www.catholicnews.com/services/englishnews/2019/the-two-popes.cfm ]

- "[O]ne can hardly imagine a Pope like Venerable Pius XII acting in this way [slapping a woman] — that does not explain the worldwide attention to the incident."

"Here, I believe, is what does explain it:  Francis has carefully cultivated the persona [with the total support of the media and Netflix] of the meek, kind and humble Pope who is a veritable font of mercy, unlike his stern predecessors. But in that unguarded moment he revealed that this persona is a public relations facade behind which an ordinary man, prone to ordinary (and perhaps even inexcusable) outbursts of anger, is carefully hidden from view. Also revealed is the truth that Francis may actually be less meek and humble — by far — than Benedict XVI, whom the press falsely depicted as an aloof and intolerant “regalist” with a penchant for red leather shoes and kingly pomp."[https://fatima.org/news-views/fatima-perspectives-1367/ ]

My main problem with this quote is:

Why didn't Ferrara use Pope Benedict XVI as an example against Francis the "meek and humble"?

Can anyone seriously imagine the real Benedict slapping a woman like Netflix's Francis the "meek and humble" did?

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps... [and] hid behind precedent... to prohibit pro-life activists from exercising their free speech ." The Avvo.com lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right. This is why he left the prestigious Yale Law School, whom publicly stated their unwill

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
