Coolest Pope Ever Urges Catholics to Chill Out About Abortion and GaysErin Gloria Ryan9/19/13 2:30pmFiled to: holy crappope franciscatholicismreligionfrancisthe popecatholicsreligious leadersantonin scaliagettypic30015EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkPope Francis, the hippest, most bro'd down Pope since Pope Brad the Chill (not a real pope), just did a long interview with an Italian newspaper — and it was the stuff of right wing nightmares. During the interview, the head of the Church stopped just short of chiding modern church leaders who are "obsessed" with gays and abortion, remarking that preoccupation with genitally-related moral issues detracts from Catholicism's overall mission. Guys: I think I've got a soul-crush on the new pope. Turns out, he's not more of the same shit in a different hat, as Lindy mused he would be earlier this year. He's different. Think more friendly barefoot youth pastor who can play the guitar, less rigid Nazi gold hoarding pedophile protector. Upgrade!
