Pope Frank is my homeboy

Pope Francis says WWIII is happening already

I enjoy just about everything he does:

Wednesday was the Cool Pope’s 78th birthday. What do you think he did to celebrate? Get a few strippers? Eat a pile of molly? Cry to himself silently over a bottle of Grappa about a life lived unfulfilled? No. He bought homeless Romans 400 sleeping bags.

The Cool Pope announced via the Vatican on Thursday that an archbishop would pack up a van full of sleeping bags and distribute them through Rome to provide homeless residents with some much needed winter warmth. Via AFP:

Konrad Krajewski, the archbishop in charge of the pope’s charity work, led an operation in which a minibus packed with 400 sleeping bags carrying a papal ensign toured around the Italian capital on Wednesday evening looking for people to give them to.

“This is a gift for you from the pope on the occasion of his birthday,” the Swiss guards who helped in the distribution were quoted as telling the recipients.

At the end of his birthday audience on Wednesday, Cool Pope met with eight homeless people instead of twenty supermodels.

  1. It’s difficult to be critical of a guy who gives $20,000 dollars worth of sleeping bags to homeless Romans. He could have made no gesture at all right? But this guy isn’t as cool as he appears to be on the surface. Nobody is. And things aren’t always what the seem.
    Take the Sony Picture thing. When do you suppose that Sony is going to come clean about the making of “The Interview?” The Rand Corporation, the NSA and the CIA exercised a good deal of influence when it came to the creative content in this film.
    What we are seeing is an orchestrated effort by the Right (neo-cons) in this country to create an international incident.
    Hopefully Obama won’t be foolish enough to take the warmongers bait and start a war over a movie.
