But the Pope is so… mockable!

Apparently some Catholic bishops aren’t happy that some of us like to mock the Pope and they think we should stop:

ROME (CNS)—Mockery is not acceptable in public discussions, especially when the subject is the pope, said the president of the Italian Catholic bishops’ conference.

[…] “We will not accept that the pope, in the media or anywhere else, is mocked or offended,” said Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco of Genoa, opening the spring meeting of the permanent council of the Italian bishops’ conference.

Fuck the Pope and fuck Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco too. When the Pope stops saying shit that’s worth mocking then I’ll stop mocking him, but until then he’s fair game. Considering his position as the head of the Catholic church it’s probably unlikable he’ll stop saying things that are worth mocking anytime soon.
