Holy Tweet!

Pope Benedict XVI has joined Twitter!

“Dear Friends, I just launched News.va. Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI,” twittered the Pope on the Vatican’s new account.

I think it will fascinating to watch the Vatican use 21st Century technology to push its 17th Century teachings.

    I am not a believer, but the Vatican embraced the theory of evolution before I was born. More Americans believe in astrology than believe in evolution, and the Republican candidates are terrified when the question comes up at debates. What to do? Sound like an ignoramus or infuriate the base? Not an easy question for the power hungry.

    When I was a Junior High brat, we tried to trick a nun teacher to pick one or the other. She dismissed us by saying “It doesn’t matter if it was Creationism or Evolution. Whichever it was – God started it.”

    And she should have known the the Vatican’s position; yes, evolution is a reality, but God put it all in motion. In my early teens, a priest told me the Adam and Eve story was a parable. If I wanted to believe it, fine; if I didn’t want to believe it, that was fine too.

    I won’t go into it here, but I’ve always been amused by the story of how the siblings of Jesus became his half-siblings (to keep Mary pure forever) and then, in 340 AD, became his cousins (to keep Joseph chaste as well).

    The Bible says-“IT IS BETTER TO CAST THY SEED IN THE BELLY OF A WHORE THAN TO CAST IT ON THE GROUND!” That’s a pretty hep book-I believe in the old testament-as far as I can tell Jesus never wrote ONE SINGLE WORD of it. That is the NEW testament -BUT when the Pharisee’s tried to trick him into blasphemy they asked him if they should keep all of Moses covenants and Jesus said,”Thow shalt keep ALL the prior covenenants.” The covenants of the Arc-the priests robes-all that stuff that Catholicism comes the CLOSEST to. But since the book was written 90-100 yrs after he was strung up and you had to become Jewish and get circumsized to be a JEW to be a follower of jesus at the start-they have been changing stuff since he died to meet the local politics. Jesus got laid, had kids, lived like a man, he had to or they would have called him a queer. Jacked off and looked at dirty picyures and all that stuff Frank does.
