Of course, it's that time of year again.
A good round-up here and here of the 'lead codices' story reported uncritically in so many places.
As someone has said, why can't many journalists these days seem to be bothered to check out their sources without just accepting any line that is fed to them? A combination of too little time and plain laziness, I suppose. We're all human after all.
I know that such things do need to be reported, but am I the only one who detects a shocking naïvety either in the hope that everything will be "proved" to be as the Scriptures say, or in the obvious glee in certain media quarters that something will be discovered which will discredit the Church's faith once and for all?
Anyway, sorry - better luck next time!
