First, the interview is written partly as narrative, and it is not clear how accurate the pope’s words are or if the context they are set in is complete.Unlike the recent interview the Pope did with La Civilta Cattolica, we do not have an indication that the Pope reviewed the Italian text prior to publication to ensure that it represented his views without distortion.Second, there is the matter of how good the translation is.Problems with the translation are already being reported.
