Instead of aiming for a specific religious doctrine, this time around Charlie Hebdo went for the big cat, God.
What act did Pope Francis perform that can only be explained as the work of a higher power? Water to wine, healing the blind, it must be something exceptional right?

The Vatican needs to keep an eye on their diplomats vehicles, as one of the cars has been used to transport drugs across Europe.
I imagine this is the closest we’ll get to feeling like Bill Cosby in ‘Kids Say The Darnedest Things’, because we just found this kid who did the darnedest thing. Last Saturday Pope Francis gave a speech “about families” to thousands of pilgrims who had traveled a long way to see the man in the white dress.
Last week Pope Francis said in his homily that “everyone” will be redeemed. But now the Vatican’s spokesperson Rev. Thomas Rosica is taking a step back to “clear up” the remarks made by the Pope.
Pope Francis is the new leader of 1,2 billion Catholics. But he’s also the man in charge of the Vatican’s finances.

Recent controversy Modern controversy surrounding the bank […]
D-Rod just can’t stop himself from visiting secretive rulers in tiny, controversial countries. Yesterday, Dennis was spotted outside the Vatican City. Fresh off his tour of North Korea, where he befriended dictator Kim Jong-Un, Rodman is in Rome – and the Vatican – to promote Irish gambling company, Paddy Power. Although Rodman stated that he […]
Ok it’s not really Woody Allen, but damn Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina looks a lot like the Bullets Over Broadway director! Anyway, the new guy is 76 years old and is also the first non-European leader of the church in more than 1,000 years.

A German by the name of Ralph Napierski attempted to walk into secret talks to discuss the succession of resigned Pope Benedict XVI on Monday at the Vatican. Napierski was wearing a makeshift bishop’s cloak, had his own entourage of fake clerics, and to make the whole thing seem authentic, posed for photos with real bishops […]
Pope Benedict XVI made his final general audience appearance yesterday morning. Tens of thousands of followers gathered in St Peter’s Square, where the pope has provided lessons on the Catholic faith every week for eight years.

Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turksan is the front runner to replace Pope Benedict from the the bookmaker’s point of view.

The Vatican is worth a few bob, hell, they are their own city and do things pretty much as they please. Generally always shrouded in a bit of mystery, there a few quirks to some of the millions that have been acquired over the years.
Pope Benedict XVI tweeted for the first time yesterday from a personal Twitter account. This follows last week’s announcement by the Vatican that Benedict would begin posting messages on Twitter in eight languages under the handle @pontifex – a Latin term for pope that means “bridge builder.”
Pranksters push Kim Jong Un closer to TIME Magazine’s person of the year victory. Pope gets Twitter account. Kate has rare morning sickness condition. Syria prepping chemical weapons. Tyson high on coke during Hangover. Our grade nine’s maths average is WHAT?
Gabriele Amorth is the Vatican’s chief exorcist. And if he is to be believed, he’s pretty good at it with just under 70 000 banished evil spirits under his belt. He says yoga is the work of the devil and leads to a belief in Hinduism, which, in turn, leads to evil.
Pope Benedict XVI took to Twitter yesterday and composed a tweet on an iPad before sending it out into cyberspace. Granted, it did take about six other similarly aged cardinals and other officials to help him out, but it is the thought that counts, right? See a video of him tweeting, as well as his full Twitter message, inside.
Why? Because Pope Benedict XVI can do what he wants, I guess. He spent about twenty minutes video chatting with the crew of the International Space Station and the U.S shuttle Endeavour, conveying well-wishes for Gabrielle Gifford’s husband, and generally just shooting the breeze.
Well, it’s not like they had them explode from a cake and huskily sing ‘Happy Birthday, Mr. Jesus,’ but this comes pretty close. But hey, good thing they don’t allow gay folk to become Popes, right? Otherwise that creepy look on his face would be pretty hard to explain away.
