WATCH: The Pope Tweets


  1. 1
    Andrew Craig-Bennett says:

    “Could Try Harder”, eg:

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

  2. 2
    this septic pile says:

    they know not what they tweet

  3. 3
    septicus maximus says:

    ………et brutus si inat

  4. 4
    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.”)

  5. 5
    septicus maximus says:

    whoops – it should have been ‘sic inat’

    my slips are heeled!

  6. 6
    suffer the little children says:

    or – E&OE – and you’ll have to see our lawyers about compo

  7. 7
    Kebab Time says:

    I will not be following

  8. 8
    Father McKunty says:

    Now Kebab just say 3 hail marys and bend over that pulpit while I show you my wrath.

  9. 9
    M Cliford (Helping with enquiries) says:

    Pope tweets my hamster.

  10. 10
    He who no longer posts says:

    illegitimis non carborundum

  11. 11
    Alasdair Campbell Murderer says:

    “Thank you for your generous response.”

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

  12. 12
    Athiest says:

    Evil man

  13. 13
    Athiest says:

    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

  14. 14
    Huffy Auld Git says:

    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.

  15. 15
    Tatchell says:

    We will get him to bend to our will.

  16. 16
    Anonymous says:

    one world says the

    age of consent in the vatican to remain at 12?

    holy is a man with a hole.
    father is kind.

    so let kindness prevail.
    but not only for those over the paywall.

  17. 17
    Moussa Koussa's pet meerkat says:

    The pope should get a proper job.

    I believe tin foil hats are in aisle 666 of most Tesco’s these days…..

  19. 19
    Moussa Koussa's pet meerkat says:

    Look out for a black cat.

  20. 20
    Athiest says:

    “Thank you for your generous response.”

    You won’t get one from me

  22. 22
    Drum says:

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

  23. 23
    East India Company Wallah says:

    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

  24. 24
    James says:

    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

  25. 25
    Rod Serling says:

    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:

  26. 26
    Twit says:

    He is thanking the 700,000 followers on twitter. Not bad after 2 weeks.

  27. 27
    Not Judas says:

    And Jesus had 12 Apostles.
    It could be a miracle.

  28. 28
    JustinBeeber says:

    But nowhere near my 31,345,852.
    And he can’t even sing.

  29. 29
    IMHO says:

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

  30. 30
    Jezus Crispie says:

    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.

  32. 32

    You mean “attended within living memory”, and: AMDG – ad majorem Dei gloriam (to the greater glory of God)

    Now sadly defunct

  33. 33
    Jodocus Trutfetter says:

    Yes, you clearly are.

  34. 34
    Jodocus Trutfetter says:

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

  35. 35
    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.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
