Who would have thought that a major Catholic cathedral would be a place of worship? This is apparently a surprise to the writers and editors of the Associated Press, which had a story last week headlined, “Tourist mecca Notre Dame also revered as place of worship.” Really? You mean it’s not just some medieval building in Paris where tourists like to visit? This is a horrible headline, but it’s not surprising for a news media which is increasingly filled with people who don’t associate with religious folks. Most modern news media people are shockingly out of touch with the huge segment of the population for which worship is still a big deal. Media people aren’t doing their jobs when they don’t bother to understand the culture of such a major part of their audience.
