Hattip to commenter Greg Mockeridge.  News that I missed, courtesy of The Babylon Bee:


VATICAN CITY—In his first public statement on the horrifying, devastating report on sexual abuse within the Catholic Church, Pope Francis stated he would address the controversy in detail once he’s done talking about climate change for a few more weeks.

The head of the Roman Catholic Church claimed he is deeply concerned with the tragic report, but is “just too swamped” with work fighting climate change, criticizing capitalism, and advocating for other issues of social justice to talk about the repulsive report at the moment.

“Rest assured, once I have exhausted my talking points on the need for government policies to crack down on their carbon footprints, we’ll start looking this report over,” he said. “Then I’ll be sure to make a statement on it. We just didn’t want to jump to conclusions too early, something that we’re not concerned about with man-made climate change. Just with this.”

Go here to read the rest.  Oh, the Vatican has released a statement.  Go here to read it.  We should be relieved, I guess, to learn that the Pope is on the side of the abused and not the abusers.  I assume that will be reflected in his future appointments, since his past appointments give us no such assurance.

  1. To be fair, blithering about climate (and other apocalyptic crises like impeach Trump, suffrage for felons, low taxes, free stuff for illegals, gay/transgender privileges, disarming law-abiding people, bail for training-mass-school-shootings terrorists, etc.) works for Democrats.
