I was talking to one of the girls and she shared with me a joke one of her friends made, about how the Catholic church might deflect some of the current criticism if they would only reframe their stance on a significant issue; instead of focusing on the infallibility of the pope, they should focus on the infelatability of the pope.
Of course, I completely misunderstood her and thought she said “the inflatability of the pope”. And frankly, I think that’s a far better idea!
Think about it; wouldn’t you be charmed by any church that had a giant inflatable cartoon pope set up in the yard? On maybe an inflatable Jesus? Or how about a pope made of thin ripstop mounted on a fan, making a dancing pope that waves his arms ecstatically?
I think I’m onto something here!
Or maybe I’m just on something.
