The Onion: Pope To Ease Up On Jesus Talk

I couldn’t help but post this.  Hilarious!

VATICAN CITY—Acknowledging that he has perhaps been laying it on a little thick with the religion stuff lately, Pope Benedict XVI said Wednesday that he was making a concerted effort to take all his incessant Jesus talk down a notch.

“I’d like to think I can be an infallible ecclesiastical authority without ramming it down people’s throats,” the pope said. “I’m starting to realize what a huge turn-off that is.”

In a routine papal blessing Sunday at St. Peter’s Square, Benedict made far fewer mentions of Jesus than usual and only cited scripture twice, opting instead for such uncharacteristic phraseology as “Sorry if this sounds preachy,” “I’m not here to judge,” and “Hey, this works for me, but by all means, feel free to do your own thing, too.”

  1. I LOVE THE ONION. When I was in college there was an issue that featured Jesus slam dunking and the headline was something like “Jesus H. Christ dunks over everyone”. Too funny.

  2. […] to the Onion, the Pope has finally realized that he talks about Jesus too much. (HT Thomas Verenna) Acknowledging that he has perhaps been laying it on a little thick with the religion stuff […]

  3. The Vatican has hired PR people and paid for opinion surveys, which show people don’t mind there being a Lord and a Vicar of Christ, as long they let people do whatever they want and keep their opinions to themselves.
