The Pope Joins Twitter

Pope Benedict XVI has joined Twitter and composed his first tweet!

“Dear Friends, I just launched News.va. Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI,” the Pope, 84, wrote on the Vatican’s Twitter account.

The Vatican’s new site features news in Italian and English and plans to add other languages in the future – it also opened its own YouTube channel a few years ago to upload videos of Pope Benedict and various church events.

Check out a video of the Pope tweeting on an iPad below.

@A: U obv have no idea what ur talking about. The pope’s day starts at 5am and he often works into the evening, plus alot if traveling thru out the year. He moves more and is way busier than you. He speaks 10 languages and earned a doctorate. He can certainly manage and send his own tweets, a practice millions of morons appear to do fine with. So don’t worry about Pope Ben, he doesn’t need ‘assistance’.

I feel so violated…

Piss off you and your hypocritical child molesting abusing relatives!

Religion is by far the WORST invention ever devised by the mind of man.

The pope can use all the new technology he wants, the beliefs of the Catholic church are still ancient, outdated and hypocritical.

Guessing he was waiting for Weiner to stop tweeting before signing on ;)

Just WoW !

religion is a concept invented by weak people of a low intelligence for the purpose of explaining the universe. I think many people would stop believing in a God if they could wrap their heads around Quantum theories. Suffering is much easier explained without God in the picture.

LOL Great, i just hope he’s not one of these people who change their statuses every 5 seconds.

Next up, Rick Santorum joins 4chan!

@zephon: It’s only idiots and extremists who make it that way. the core of religion is goodness and such things like do not kill, do not cheat, do not steal, respect your parents, respect your neighbors. Wow, how horrible.

@blb: You’re already wrong. Religion is not about explaining the universe at all and people who turn to it forthat are the ones that go astray. Religion is about guidance on how to conduct yourself in life, not a doctrine on how species propagated the earth. That takes up one column of the bible. The rest are stories examining human behavior and morality.get an effing clue!!!!

There is nothing wrong with not being up to date with every technological thing nowadays. Especially at his age. I just hate it when people pretend that they are just to seem to be close to the people. The catholic church is tremendously good at that.

Poor old guy has no idea what that is. They show him, they tell him, he listens… but has no idea.

Who would have thought 50 years ago in Don Draper era that we would come to this? TV on flat paper-like stuff. And STILL we can’t travel in space. And we can’r even fly beyond Moon. Live people I mean. How embarrassing.
