The Impact of the Media on Religion

For centuries, the papacy has operated with the conviction that it answers to no earthly power. Many in Rome still believe that to be the case, but nowadays the church’s faithful also believe in the sanctity of a free and vigorous press, with its unrelenting questions and nose for controversy. This all makes running modern media relations for the Vatican, in polite terms, a job from hell…. the way the church deals with (questions) is crucial for her moral credibility.– TIME magazine, 12th April 2010

What makes this short piece such an engaging read ?
The answer is word play. Identify the topic / theme (i.e. religion) and then use words or phrases to highlight this topic as you explain. The product is a very unified piece that is written with sensitivity.
