Through no fault of the poster, the article is overwhelmingly misleading. The story reads as if the Pooe actually uttered the EFF word but is really hardly the case.
The story is a sensation only if you speak Italian and realize the similarity in the pronunciation of the words intended to be spoken.
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.
