Something actually useful on the papacy, or at least enjoyable, from the New York Times : a guess the quote game  called “How Recent Popes Differ on Key Issues.”

If one were to quibble, that “differ” in the title is ambiguous, and I’d guess that the  Times means “differs substantially” because the newspaper’s writers put a lot of energy into looking for evidence that the popes have finally come round to the truth as seen by the  New York Times , when the quotes show no such thing. But maybe that’s unfair and they mean difference as in “differ in emphasis.”

My thanks to Mark Barrett for flagging this.
