Synod chief: "Pope Francis approved family synod’s controversial mid-term report before publication"

For the unhappy record, LifeSiteNews reports:
ROME, January 29, 2015 ( – The lead organizer of the Vatican’s Synod on the Family has revealed that Pope Francis approved the controversial mid-term report from the meeting before it was published. Until now, Pope Francis’ role in the document’s publication has been left to conjecture.

Update: I just received from a courrier the following missive from correspondent Guy Noir, with the words, "File under 'THINGS AS THEY REALLY ARE'":
I know, I know. As Mark Shea, Randy Reno, Fr. Dwight, and a phalanx of hopeful witnesses unceasingly reassure us,

But I think immediately of certain particular "separated brethren," as we have so recently witnessed them living through the first throes of such a similar evolution. The Episcopalians in their Book of Common Prayer have a collect the lines of which that Catholic Crowd at Patheos might now want to heed as they "read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest" this:

“The Pope said: ‘These three points received an absolute majority. They were therefore not rejected with a ‘no,’ as they received more than 50 percent approval. They are therefore issues that still need to be developed. We as a Church want a consensus. These texts can be modified, that’s clear. Once there has been further reflection, they can be modified.”

Yet the Pope is all over the place condemning gay marriage & the media is reporting it.

What is he up too?
