PopeWatch: Wascally Wabbits



From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:


Just days after Pope Francis made statements supporting the Church’s ban on artificial means of birth control, media outlets from across the globe are now reporting that the “progressive” pope has finally overturned the Church’s long-standing ban on contraception for bunnies.

Speaking with reporters on a flight Monday from the Philippines to Rome, Francis encouraged Catholics to use natural family planning so as not to breed like rabbits, before going on to add that rabbits would, from now on, be allowed the use of certain forms of artificial birth control.

MSNBC Vatican analyst Reese Moore reported that although the Church’s ban on humans using birth control has sadly not been overturned, that bunny contraception was a step in the right direction.

“This is certainly a step in the right direction,” Moore told EOTT this morning. “It appears to be an unprecedented statement that bunnies too may have a moral responsibility to limit the number of their offspring. When the Pope makes a statement saying that rabbits need not breed like rabbits, it appears as though the Pope is asking rabbits world-wide to look at Catholics as an example of responsible parenthood. I firmly believe that Pope Francis is testing the waters here for something truly groundbreaking.”


PopeWatch attempted to contact the Pope for comment, but received the below video instead from the Vatican:

More to explorer


  1. Warner Bros. now owns Lepus. Maybe they can edit Bugs, Elmer Fudd, and Pope Francis into it to make it even more entertaining1 And having Porky Pig say, “That’s all folks!” at the end would be the icing on the cake!

  2. The pope went on to say that 3 baby bunnies is about the right number per family. And you can see why that would be so: that reproduces the mommy and daddy bunnies and leaves the third one for the fox! Therefore no increase in population or carbon footprint.

  3. We also have eat too many spiders, ants, armodillas, snakes, & opposums in my neck of the woods. Maybe through “pastor” care at our local parish, our priest could approve the use of contraception for them. 😉
