Po Pourri

What’s black and white and gushes? The catholic church.

Sorry. But really, he‘s 78. How much longer is he going to last? And don’t fall off your chair, people, but apparently he’s rather conservative. The Pope. A conservative. Who’d. Have. Thought. Did I mention that he used to be a member of the Hitler youth? Boingboing also points out that he was “prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, formerly known as the Holy Office of the Inquisition”. Galileo may be back in the dog house.

Little irony here, when the crowds didn’t know what colour the conclave smoke was. Hmmm – the church’s message is meant to be black and white, but in the real world it’s just shades of grey. Imagine that.
