If the Vatican hasn't been in the news much lately, it's because they've been brainstorming out there in Italy. They thunk and thunk and added new sins to the already interminable list of proscribed behaviours.
'Cause this is the 21st century dude and we're just becoming eviler and eviler...
So, whereas before taking or trafficking drugs would land you in prison, now it lands you in hell too! Kill two birds with one stone so to speak. Drug traffickers will think twice now before selling drugs as it makes going to hell just that much easier when some other asshole shoots 'em in the head. Ya think?
Pollution is now as sin(be careful of your garbage people, it could land you in the brimstone fires of hell), as are social and economic injustice and genetic manipulation.
Because last week social and economic injustice was just fine and dandy??
Much as I despise catholicism (and organized religion in general), I have to love the Vatican for making me laugh this morning. And handing me a post on a silver platter. Because the "weekend at the cottage picture post"? I have the pictures, they're on one of those little thingys you plug into your computer but this computer says, "Nope, I've decided its boy bits are incompatible with my girl bits."
So no go. I'm such a techno-idjit. Le sigh.
