PopeWatch: Cats

News that PopeWatch missed, courtesy of The Babylon Bee:

 

VATICAN CITY—In a sweeping statement Tuesday, Pope Francis announced his belief that all cats across the world are Christians. Although pundits frequently acknowledge the Pope’s progressive policies, Catholic scholars are calling this a “truly unprecedented” move.

 

“A Pope hasn’t made a declaration like this since Pope Alexander VI issued a Papal Bull against Llamas in 1493,” noted one high-ranking official at the Vatican, who chose to remain anonymous. “One thing is certain: this will change the conversation on whether an individual can truly ‘own’ a cat.”

Several years ago, scholars universally acknowledged that all dogs go to heaven. It is unclear whether or not today’s announcement jeopardizes this previous belief. When asked about any possible conflict, the Vatican’s media specialist responded: “That was a predominantly Protestant perspective. I think it originated with Karl Barkh’s Dog-matic theology.”

 

Go here to read the rest.  PopeWatch would say something pungent, but Cats purportedly have long memories:

  1. “Several years ago, scholars universally acknowledged that all dogs go to heaven.” Devoid of a rational soul, let us just say that all dogs have the opportunity to go to heaven.

  2. A property court battle (convent ) between Ms. Perry and 89 year old Catherine Rose Holzman ended in the religious’ death in the courtroom just over a month ago. I’m not too shocked to see two cats shaking hands, but it is very likely that the cat in white knew nothing of the dispute, or death of a nun trying to hold on to the convent. His holiness is aware however how rigid orthodox Catholics can be. Priorities… right?
