Pope News [updated]

photo found here by googling “cute dogs” http://pichost.me/1457531/

From USA Today:

Pope Francis continues to show he’s anything but traditional. During a recent public appearance, Francis comforted a boy whose dog had died, noting, “One day, we will see our animals again in the eternity of Christ. Paradise is open to all of God’s creatures.”

Theologians say Francis—who took his papal name from the patron saint of animals, St. Francis of Assisi—was only speaking conversationally.

If that’s how the Pope speaks conversationally that’s rad.

** UPDATE **

Apparently, not true.

How great is the Washington Post’s photo for this story?:

    Fun to imagine theologians bitching to each other about this.
