Something to Think About

From Pope Benedict’s address at today’s World Youth Day Papal Welcoming Ceremony, here’s a great challenge for us to ponder as we make our media choices:

“I ask myself, could anyone standing face to face with people who actually do suffer violence and sexual exploitation ‘explain’ that these tragedies, portrayed in virtual form, are considered merely ‘entertainment?'”

Ouch. That one stung a little.
