CAVEAT: I mean absolutely NO political or religious implications to this … it just amused me linguistically.
Certainly, anyone who pays attention to the news in just about any medium will have heard the name of “The Christian Science Monitor” from time to time. I’ve always heard the phrase said with an emphasis that tied “Christian” and “Science” together … creating the impression that it is a “Monitor that is run by Christian Scientists.”
However, on the radio recently I heard an announcer say the name with an emphasis that tied the words “Science” and “Monitor” together … creating the impression that it is a paper whose purpose is for “Christians to Monitor Science” (like “Science” was trying to pull a fast one and had to be watched suspiciously).
Again, I mean to cast no aspersion on real-world institutions … but the idea of a religious-based “Science Monitor” organization . . . particularly in a setting that rife with corruption, conspiracy, and power-mongering.
