Pope Ratty has been busy. Take this simple quiz to see how progressive and forward-thinking the church has become…
What did the Pope warn against on his trip to Germany?
(a) Unchecked greenhouse gas emissions
(b) International terrorism
(c) ‘DIY’ religion
How did he describe the paedophile priest scandal?
(a) “awful and cruel”
(b) “abhorrent and savage”
(c) “wrinkles and shadows”
European multiculturalism is…
(a) “A brave and noble project”
(b) “Both a challenge and an honour”
(c) “Fleeing from what is one’s own”
How is he planning to reform church policy?
(a) Say that condoms aren’t such a bad idea after all
(b) Allow women to become priests
(c) Prevent gay men from becoming priests
If you picked C all the way through – congratulations!
Yes, Ratty’s latest initiative is to try and block gay priests. Why? Because it’s ‘unfair’ and may cause ‘temptation’. Presumably bisexual priests will be breathing a sigh of relief.
For this to work the Church gaydar had better work better than the Church paedophile detector…
