So-Called 'Cool' Pope Still Stuck In Middle Ages

Just when you thought The Holy See might be occupied by a somewhat rational human being, the truth smacks us right in the face—kind of like at our Confirmation. Pope Francis—hailed by many as 'The Cool Pope'sent a glowing message to a Rome convention of exorcists this week. That's right, 300 strong of the International Association of Exorcists are in town—no doubt whooping it up on the Appian Way. Wouldn't you just love to be catering their parties? Anyway, Il Papa stated that the exorcists, "manifest the Church’s love and acceptance of those who suffer because of the devil’s works." Right. A spokesperson for the group pointed to, "an increase in other demonic phenomena such as vexations, obsessions and especially diabolical possessions." Of course. Earth to Vatican: the 5th century wants its worldview back.
