Pope Francis is Cool and All, But . . .

. . . take care not to get sucked in by what you want to be true. I’ve seen this story making the Facebook rounds with a lot of happy smilies from my liberal religious colleagues and friends. Sounds nice, no?

Totally fake.

Honestly, if you read a story that sites no sources and links nowhere else, it’s a good idea to put on your skeptical spectacles. Third Vatican Council?? I think we might have heard something about that before now from a major news source, and not a blog with a satire disclaimer on its site.

I like the new Pope. He makes me proud to have gone to a Jesuit college. Please, though, let’s not project too many of our daydreams onto him, mmkay?
