Yesterday morning I woke up to this headline: Vatican praises The Simpsons for religion! (Didn’t post it then so as not to spoil your Holiday cheer)
This isn’t the first time the Vatican has done an about-turn on their stance. Remember last year they agreed that extra-terrestrial life could be real? After years & years of claiming that we were God’s supreme creation?
Is this another move on their part to get young people to think that the church is cool or something?
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
The newspaper story insisted the show’s success is due to its ‘realistic and intelligent writing’ and thanked the show’s producers for depicting family patriarch Homer’s struggle with his own faith through its 20 years on the small screen.
The article added: “Homer finds in God his last refuge, even though he sometimes gets His name sensationally wrong. But these are just minor mistakes, after all, the two know each other well.”
I mean, I have to say it again. I don’t get it. What the hell is this about?
But that’s not all. Here’s another short excerpt:
L’Osservatore Romano recently paid tribute to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, for highlighting the ‘sacrifice’ needed for good to triumph over evil.
And what’s wrong with that, you ask? Well it’s common knowledge that Pope Benedict hates Harry Potter. He’s accused the Harry Potter series of having ‘”subtle seductions,” capable of corrupting young Christians.’ Then why this, now? Why the sudden change of heart? And then they call me fickle minded!
Think about it.
