The BBC simply can't understand why the Pope opposes artificial birth control! And the dour Brits certainly can't fathom why chastity, or abstinence outside of marriage, or simple modesty or purity might appeal to all those African savages.
No, instead the Brits give a knighthood to Teddy K ("He had'is arm around'er but he didn't mean to drown'er") -- Sir Teddy of Chappaquiddick. That's their idea of the virtues of chivalry.
And then they go ferret out anti-Catholic "Catholics" to feather their intellectually impoverished nest with a catch-quote.
How dare the Pope enunciate Catholic principles. Why, it's just not Cricket!
