Pope's tweets not infallible, blames aides

Posted on by Mike Evans

I know little and care less for religious dogma, but surely there is a whiff of convenience in the news that the Pope's tweets will not be infallible. Apparently, to ensure fallibility, the papal utterings will be typed by aides. This will avoid any typos being elevated to the status of papal edicts. A mistake in "thou shallt not use condoms", perhaps omitting the "not", would surely invite eternal damnation for millions of fecund followers. I shall not be following the infallible Pope, nor his fallible aides.
