The New Pope: 'Pears To Be A Fool

So, apparently Mr. Bergoglio said the following:

"He who does not pray to the Lord prays to the devil. When we don't proclaim Jesus Christ, we proclaim the worldliness of the devil, the worldliness of the demon."


Wow. This is notably stupid even in the long, sad, storied history of stupid things said by humans.

Everybody says stupid things now and then. But you really don't want to come out of the gate with something like this bit of nonsense.

"Adam was but human — this explains it all. He did not want the apple for the apple's sake, he wanted it only because it was forbidden. The mistake was in not forbidding the serpent; then he would have eaten the serpent."

Impressive Twain mojo, A.

Though it makes me reflect on the obvious fact that "'pears to be a fool" isn't at all the right title, since, of course, Pudd'nhead was no fool at all, his humorous comment about the barking dog having been, of course, misconstrued.
