Awesome. You know what this means, right? We’re never turning back now. Gone are the days where you could be a terrible Catholic and skip mass for a few Sundays (or Easter’s) and be ignorant to the teachings of the church. Now we’re gonna have it shoved in our faces through social media sites about how bad we are as Catholics. I just picture Pope Benedict sitting at his computer like, “Yeah guys, you’re sooooo fucking bad at making it to mass every week I had to set up a Twitter account to remind you.” Even the Pope has a damn Twitter now. I don’t see him understanding how to use it though. Never being able to fit under 140 characters, slash tags that don’t make sense, etc. But everyone is gonna eat this shit up. Maybe His Holiness is doing it to look hip? I don’t know. All I know is that I feel like I’m gonna end up following him on Twitter. I don’t want to, I hate Twitter and never even use it. But I’ll do it anyways because I’m Irish Catholic and we grudgingly do what we’re told no matter what. Damnit.
