Over the past two days, as the coverage of President Obama's appearance at Notre Dame began to pick up speed in the MSM, I noticed the return of an extremely disturbing trend: the tendency of MSM news writers to make blanket statements to the effect that the Catholic Church is against stem cell research, sic et simpliciter. This is not true. The Catholic Church is a strong supporter of every kind of stem cell research that does not involve the deliberate destruction of a human embryo. If you are reading this blog, you probably know this already, but it cannot hurt to repeat it once again: The Catholic Church is against EMBRYONIC stem cell research. If you see this error, please, write to the outlet and point it out. Be brief and document yourself.
This kind of misrepresentation is a disservice to the national discourse.
