"Room for Confusion" Insufficent, Building Confusion Its Own Suite, Perhaps To be Expanded to a Wing In Future

IN my Father's house, there are many mansions, so there's plenty of room for Confusion. In fact, have her bring her BFF, Obfuscation. Oh, what the haec, invite Little White Lie to join them.

It's always good to be able to read between the lines.
And under the lines.
And on the back of the page.
And the discarded pages... written in invisible ink, ya know?
And thus we get headlines like this:

Pope Francis Relaxes Church Rules On Divorce

On "divorce"? Um, no.
Not even close.
And that's also how we get pastoral advice like this, from a "professor of moral theology at Boston College," even though he admits the document deosnt actually, you know, say what he wants it to have said:
While Francis did not explicitly give a green light for remarried Catholics to return to communion, “the dots are pretty close together, you can connect them reasonably easily."
