Accuracy in Media

The Washington Examiner reported:

“Pope Francis appeared uncomfortable this week when Bolivian President Evo Morales presented him with a crucifix featuring Jesus Christ nailed to the universal symbol of communism: The hammer and sickle.”

“However, it’s not quite what it looks like.”

“As it turns out, the crucifix holds a deeper meaning as it is meant to honor the memory of Father Luis Espinal, a Roman Catholic priest who was tortured and murdered in 1980 by Bolivian government forces.”

“Prior to his death, the Jesuit priest and longtime defender of human rights had carved the hammer and sickle crucifix for the purpose of hopefully starting a dialogue between communism and the Catholic Church, Holy See press officer Fr. Federico Lombardi explained Thursday.”
