Pope breaks irony meter

... says that "new technologies confuse people about the difference between fiction and reality". Unlike, say, some musty old book written by a buncha half-literate shepherds a couple thousand years ago, that's never confused people about the difference between fiction and reality, eh?

  1. I'm honestly curious about how many people actually bother too much about what the pope says. Not just this pope, but any pope.

    I'm sure we all know catholics who attend mass regularly but disagree with some of the church's "teachings." But I guess that's probably just a developed world phenomenon. I suppose the less education you have, the more you might take this crap at face value. Or perhaps I have too much faith in reason, or people. Probably both.

  2. As an ex-Catholic, I definitely agree with your assessment of the Pope's statement.
