Cool pope Pope Francis is so cool (HOW COOL IS HE?) that he recently said he'd be willing to baptize aliens from outer space if they ever touch down on Earth looking to be saved.
The pope brought up aliens during his daily mass as a part of a larger discussion on who should be allowed to be baptized. Now, Il Papa, being Cool Pope and all, believes that the church should be willing to baptize anyone, no matter what their background — even if it means that their parents are cohabitating and unmarried or if they happen to be visiting from Mars.
He asked, "If tomorrow, for example, an expedition of Martians arrives and some of them come to us ... and if one of them says: 'Me, I want to be baptised!', what would happen?"
First of all, if aliens came to Earth tomorrow, I think we'd have WAY bigger problems than figuring out how to get them baptized (like how to get their flying saucer out of Geena Davis' pool for one), but most importantly, Pope Francis has officially become the cool high school guidance counselor of Catholicism.
The divine truth is out there, everyone.
