Bill Donohue comments on media coverage of the Synod of Bishops:th-2

 Media coverage of the second week of the Synod of Bishops was extensive. To the media, the number one issue was homosexuality.

 Over the past week, Lexis-Nexis posted 278 stories taken from U.S. newspapers and wires on the subject of the synod. Here is the breakdown of the coverage:

  • 80 percent mentioned gays or homosexuals
  • 65 percent mentioned divorce or divorced
  • 47 percent mentioned cohabitation
  • 19 percent mentioned contraception

 As the Centers for Disease Control recently disclosed, homosexuals are 1.6 percent of the population. But given the media obsession with this issue, a visitor from Mars might conclude it is more like 98 percent.
