Me and the Pope's YouTube Channel
Well I suppose it was inevitable. If Stephen Harper, Vladimir Putin, and the fat lady who fell off the exercise bicycle can have a YouTube channel....so can Pope Benny.
And I for one am delighted. Now I can monitor his periodic outbursts of self loathing homophobia without having to watch the news. Or call some old queen at the Vatican.
Although I must say I'm VERY impressed by his decision to join Google....and support their inspiring campaign for gay marriage.
Who knew eh? Good for him. I guess it's NEVER too late to change your mind....or come out of the closet.
But you know after checking out El Popo's site I'm afraid it needs a little work.
Because sadly he'll never attract any young viewers with that kind of boring shite.
So how about spicing it up a bit....with say a video of Madonna singing Like a Virgin .....dressed in nun's drag? Or the miraculous...and delicious...story of Jesus in a burrito?
Or maybe a scary clip of Benny playing the Grand Inquisitor he once was.
You know.. covering up those nasty scandals and ....um.....excommunicating.... sinners.
The horrible kids of today just LOVE that gory stuff.
Or even better...how about humanizing the Pope a bit?
So the young ones he says he wants to reach can relate to him....and know EXACTLY where he's coming from.
By taking us back to the halcyon days of his own youth...
Yup. That would work. The uniform is different. But the message is more or less the same. Tomorrow belongs to us...unless you're a feminist, or an atheist, or gay.
Hmmmm....the best thing about this channel? It has COMMENTS.
Hi Benny it's Simon. I know you haven't heard from me before. And I sure hope you don't have a jealous boyfriend.
Because three Ave Marias for YouTube. From now on you ridiculous old homophobe.
You're going to hear from me a LOT....
And you thought I was kidding.
Old habits die hard....
