Italian, Spanish and Latin are so close the “mistake” could not have been a mistake...just a relaxed Pope talking to friends.

Wonder how it sounds like in Italian...

Italian?

Probably had some hand gestures involved as well.

Sounds like that 113th pope thing being the last might make this guy the right guy. He thinks all the atheists are going to heaven and the Muzzies and Christians all worship the same God. Duh.

Let it go. Gaffes are oddly newsworthy.

Imagine the Pope pronouncing Gamecock’s handle.

“his defenders took to the Internet to say it was a common mistake for native Spanish speakers when they talk in Italian.”

It was his accent and people are making a big deal of it, working hard to misinterpret it. For shame.

First off this is really too comical a thread to get into this, but...Catholics are supposed to give the pope's words grave consideration, but are not bound UNLESS he his speaking ex cathedra, or in union with the magisterium.

Popes have only spoken ex cathedra a handful times between all of them. So its not some kind of conspiracy when Catholics say "he wasn't speaking ex cathedra at the time," because, he wasn't.

Maybe we should all be healing the sick and wandering the globe in poverty. Without internet access and accouterments.

On a different note you may want to turn on your porch lights -- I just got a direct line from the Vatican, there are some albino assassin monks planting f-bombs in your vegetable garden. All your veggies are going to start swearing at you. That's what you get for blowing our cover!

Strange you thought this was Breaking News.

When you take into account the poster is a reliable Catholic basher, it's not that strange. Not sure how long it stayed on the sidebar. The timestamp from the NYP was 10 this morning.

I realize the man made a mistake but I was just chuckling how Catholics play both sides of the fence depending on how things are perceived. They go into full blown attack if they think he was justified (making everyone else wrong) OR they go full speed the other way (He wasn’t speaking ex-cathedra)if he made an obvious error. As far as giving this man grave consideration, I would rather direct my efforts toward Gods Word. And I do appreciate the heads up about my garden. Peace be unto you.

Once again, I ask for a definition of Breaking. Timestamp on the NYP story is 10 this morning. Posted here after 5.

I didn’t see it in National Headlines until this evening. I’m sorry you don’t like the news. I think it’s a bid ado about nothing myself but it is Headline News (for whatever reason). And it is current.

It’s not in the Religion Forum, so “ecumenical” tags do not apply.

And put it in Breaking. Right? Why?

How does this story qualify? Do the Mods even know or do they all have their own guidelines?

The Admin Mod put it in breaking news because the Pope is that important. But it was removed later.

You're not implying that in the pronunciation of Argentines like Pope Francis, the English "M" is silent, are you?

Give it a rest? Try to post a religious article in the news forum. See what happens. This non-story was posted in the Religion Forum where it belonged, and someone had the gall to move it to the news forum and put it in breaking news. The mods need to give it a rest.

This non-story was posted in the Religion Forum where it belonged,

So by taking a pre-emptive strategy of posting a NEWS story in the Religious Forum people may circumvent the pain and agony of seeing it in the NEWS? I don't think so. Neither did the Mods. It was the first story on Yahoo! this evening (in the NEWS). Get some rest. People that are sleep deprived get whiny and I'd hate for that to happen to you.

Here's an oldie but a goodie from February 24, 2011:

In The Forum
To the tune of "In The Ghetto" by Elvis Presley

As the guano flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little newbie handle is born
In the Forum

Watch the liberal moan
if there's one thing that he don't need
an objective set of morals that he won't heed
In the Forum

People, don't you understand
this country needs a helping hand
or we'll end up Socialist some day
Read your Bible every day
"Do not steal" means what it says
do we simply turn our heads
and look the other way

Well the thread turns cold
and the whiny little boy with the turned-up nose
he types with his feet, and his argument blows
In the Forum

And his anger burns
so he starts to roam the boards at night
and he learns how to covet
and he learns how to fight
In the Forum

Then one night in desperation
this FReeper man goes awry
He spams the threads, tries to break some hearts
bends the truth, but he don't get far
And then Jesus cries

As the crowd gathers 'round, the angry young man
makes a home in the gutter, throwing temper tantrums
In the Forum

And the young man cries
on a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
another little newbie handle is born
In the Forum

Fun with the Italian language ping.

“His Holiness meant to use the Italian word for “example,” which is “caso.”

Instead, he used the word “cazzo,” which Italians use as a synonym for the four-letter obscenity.”

I was going to ping to the Elvis thingy, but see you found it, and are way ahead of me.

In my mind, I hear those back-up singers crooning in the ghetto at least once a week, when some whiner whines.

We could caucus up with 'em (when they whine) and croon 'em some tunes. Since they can't be serious (nobody else needs to anyway, they've got that well covered in serial steroid abuse fashion) then we can test to see if any of 'em have a sense of humor...
