Pope Blesses Parrot

Who's a pretty boy

Who’s a pretty boy

Pope Francis just keeps getting cooler. During his general Wednesday audience at the Vatican, the popular Pope not only blessed a former male stripper turned porn star  but his parrot too. Pope Francis told the awe struck actor it was ‘a beautiful gift from God.’. Oh loons, he was talking about the parrot for goodness sakes!!!!

Vatican’t Spell Jesus

Vatican coin misspelled JesusOMG, the Vatican had to recall all of the special coins made to commemorate Pope Francis’s inauguration because…wait for it… they misspelled Jesus. Whoopsie. In Latin it is Jesvs not “Lesvs” silly. Anywho, the four coins that were sold before the mistake was noticed may be worth a small fortune.

Secret Bishop’s Business Infiltrated

Fake bishop gets into a  pre-conclave meeting An Aussie dude managed to get into a a pre-conclave meeting of cardinals at the Vatican by dressing as a bishop. Unfortunately he was busted because his cassock was too short, his crucifix a little bizarre and he wore a purple scarf instead of an Episcopal sash. Good try though.

The Butler Did It

Holy mousetrap Batman. Guess who’s behind those Vatican leaks which revealed all the alleged corruption, mismanagement and internal conflicts. ? Seems Pope Benedict’s personal butler, Paolo Gabriele . Well, that’s awkward!

Want sauce with that?

UPDATE : The butler has been arrested, but the show will go on.

Pope Not Happy About Vatileaks

Bless me Father for I have….

Holy criminal accusations Batman. The Vatican is all at Holy sea over a Vatileaks scandal that threatens to be a book. OK it’s already a book, and the Pope ain’t happy. Pope Benedict XVI has got his lawyers lined up, ready to sue as leaked documents about corruption and mismanagement within the Catholic church go public in the book His Holiness, by Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi. Evidently someone on the inside has been providing private letters and memos between Pope Benedict and his personal secretary to the author (and it ain’t Murdoch). Um ah!!!

Anonymous Down Vatican Websites

God will punish you

Holy Heathens Batman. LulSec maybe  gone but Anonymous have still got some spunk, they have just taken down several Vatican websites because basically, they can. Oh and because they believe the Catholic church is corrupt. The hackers posted this statement on their Italian language version website “This attack is not against the Christian religion or the faithful around the world but against the corrupt Roman Apostolic Church,”

Catholics Claim Tintin

OMG, Tintin is a “Catholic Hero” . It’s true , even the Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano said so. OK, sure you might want to forget the racial controversy over the portrayal of “natives” in the Congo adventures but all in all it encapsulates the ideals of the church and of the scouts. Hey don’t shoot the messenger that’s what the Vatican is saying ‘Tintin is a hero of Catholicism, imbued with the ideal of the scouts,’. Seriously?

What Letter?

Oh dear, the Vatican maybe in a spot of bother after a 1997 letter from the Vatican to  Ireland’s Catholic bishops  reared it’s ugly head, warning them not to report suspected child abuse cases to police. The letter, now in the hot little hands of the Irish broadcasters RTE, allegedly advises the Irish church not to help police in identifying pedophile priests but to let the church handle all allegations and to decide punishments in house. The letter could potentially open up a  floodgate of lawsuits worldwide against the Vatican who have long denied any involvement in sex abuse cover-ups.

Vatican Not Happy!

Guess who’s none too happy about the “father of the test tube baby”,  Robert G. Edwards, winning a Nobel prize? Go on, guess? If you said the Vatican, take a gulp  of  communion wine. An official with the Vatican, Ignazio Carrasco de Paula, said it was “completely inappropriate” and that his work “had created a market for human eggs and created problems of embryos being frozen.”  Hmm, like the Vatican should be talking about what is inappropriate?

Who Said The Catholic Church Is A Boy’s Club?

Look away women libbers, the Vatican have just thrown the ordination of woman into the same basket as priests who rape children.As of today the Vatican sees the  “attempted ordination” of women one of the gravest crimes under church law, up there with child molestation and heresy.  Hmm and whats more, any  Catholic woman or bishop who is caught conductimg such a ceremony will be excommunicated ASAP. Bravo and welcome back to the dark ages boys.
