Liberal Media Headlines Unhappy with Pope Francis’s View on Female Priests

The liberal media does not understand the theology behind priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church, apparently, with headlines like the following:

Huffington Post: “Pope Francis: Female Catholic Priests Are Never Happening” [1]

New York Times: “Pope Francis says Ban on Female Priests is Likely to Endure” [2]

TIME: “Pope Francis Says the Ban on Women Priests Will Last Forever” [3]

USA Today: “Pope Francis: Women will be banned from the priesthood forever” [4]

An interesting tidbit from the TIME article was buried at the end:

But a Pew Research Center poll in 2015 [5] found that about 6% of American Catholics were in favor of allowing women to be priests.
