Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm just a little surprised that neither the Pope nor his advisors didn't foresee that a certain type of quote was easy to take out of context.

Ratzinger may write his own speeches, but they're surely vetted by members of his staff. How could it have escaped the Pope and his close collaborators that he was about to open his mouth and put his foot in it?
