WATCH: The Pope Tweets

An encouraging start from His Holiness, no Ed Miliband-style typos or accidental trolling of any of the other major religions. He’s no Dalai Lama though…

    “Could Try Harder”, eg:

    Carissimi, gaudeo ut loquar Twitter. Vobis gratias omnes animo de tua liberalitate responsa. Ex animo, vobis omnibus benedicat.

    Sister Mary Immaculate says:

    His Holiness should have set an example, and prefaced his Tweet with “+JMJ,” as all RC children who attend religious schools have always been taught to place atop a page when writing. (For non-RC’s, it is a sort of “PBUH.”)

    “Thank you for your generous response.”

    That’s a bit presumptuous, isn’t it?

    Yeah, people are dying through starvation all across the world. You are contributing the population explosion. People live in fear of you and your mafia organisation.

    But don’t you worry, Ratzi, you’re safe in your gilded cage.

    Piss be with you

      Yes dickhead and your government is promoting homosexuality and abortion and hiding the population decline with untrammelled immigration
      Your proving darwin correct ,you are replacing your race with superior beings who were not propogandised in school and whose political leaders werent all brainwashed on ppe courses in the universities.
      The war on global warming,food security,fuel security is a war on you

        you’re reading an awful lot into someone’s distaste for that pernicious, ridiculous archaic load of nonsense that is the Catholic Church (and it’s not alone in that amongst organised relgions)

        The likes of Guido might want to fawn over an old man in a dress and kid themselves that he’s God’s infallible representative on earth but the non indoctrinated amongst us realise the absurdity of of devoting one’s life to a book of fairy tales that has been written and rewritten by vested interests for hundreds of years.

        Libertarian Guido is seemingly fine with unlected church representatives installed in positions of political power purely on the basis that they worship a similar sky fairy to him.

        Seeing the insanity inherent in such garbage doesn’t make you a lefty warmist homosexual; it simply makes you less gullible.

        Feeble minded nonsense.

          You sound very indoctrinated (and hysterical) to me. Be careful, too much viewing of Dawkins’ website can lead to intellectual blindness.

          • Jezus Crispie says:

            Im not the one insisting that followers of Dawkins (who I find intensely annoying myself) are given positions of political power am I?

            I’m the very opposite of indoctrinated, I’ll leave the blind devotion to oddballs like Guido and his fat mini me.

    So the Pope delivers his first tweet on the 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th year of the 21st century. Coincidence obviously.

    We will get him to bend to our will.

      And the Great War ended at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eighteenth year (“18,” a Kabbalistically significant number). (*Woo woo*) Cue the freakin’ music already:

    FFS is this some sort of parody? An Italian comedy show?

    Limerick from @twitmericks

    The Vatican City’s big hitter
    Is newly converted to Twitter
    So follow the pontiff
    & get what you want if
    It’s blessings & not a quick titter

    Tweets are the works of the Devil, they are Satans shite just like Quaker chocolate bars.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
