Believe it or not, President Bush did not pick a pro-abortion scholar to be the new Vatican ambassador. He picked Harvard professor, and Catholic League board advisor, Mary Ann Glendon. This is obviously a big surprise to the Associated Press (AP).
In one of the AP’s stories on Bush’s nomination, the headline read, “Bush Picks Anti-Abortion Harvard Professor To Be Vatican Ambassador.” Now imagine how it would sound in reverse: “Bush Picks Pro-Abortion Harvard Professor To Be Vatican Ambassador.”
To top things off, in the body of the article Glendon is called “an anti-abortion scholar and opponent of gay marriage.” Has anyone ever heard of “a pro-abortion scholar”? And what exactly is so remarkable about being in favor of traditional marriage? There isn’t a single poll that indicates Americans want gay marriage, and indeed every time voters get a chance to express their view on this issue, they vote against it.
The media elites just don’t get it. They live in a world of their own. To call them parochial would be a colossal understatement.
